Sorry. The single word was written on a mirror. In front of it hung the Minneapolis Internal Affairs cop. Was it suicide? Or a kinky act turned tragic? Either way, it wasn't murder. At least not according to the powers that be. But veteran homicide detective Sam Kovac and his wisecracking, ambitious partner Nikki Liska think differently. Together they begin to dig at the too-neat edges of the young cop's death, uncovering one motive and one suspect after another. The shadows of suspicion fall not only on the city's elite, but into the very heart of the police department.… (mer)

I love police procedurals. This was an amazing book as Hoag's always are. I need to locate and read all her books. ( )

Though I know that Hoag has "Ashes to Ashes" as the first Kovac and Liska book. I always thought "Dust to Dust" was the first book in the series. Mainly because we get Kovac and Liska's third person POVs in this one and the last book really focused on John Quinn and Kate Conlan. "Dust to Dust' has Kovac and Liska investigated the death of an IAB officer with ties to a legendary police officer. Though ruled a suicide, both Kovac and Liska believe the officer was murdered. There are ties to an older homicide from decades ago.

I love Kovac and Liska. They bounce off each other very well and you can see why they work as partners.

Kovac is twice divorced though at his heart he does want to be with someone. We see him starting to click with a lieutenant in IA. This is also the beginning of the Christmas light wars he has with his next door neighbor. I don't know why that whole thing tickles me, but it does. Kovac makes mention of Kate Conlan from book #1, and even goes and sees her and John Quinn (now together and happy). Even though Kovac would love nothing more to ignore the calls from the top to close the current case they are working, he and Liska still push ahead.

Liska is a divorced mother of two still hung up on her ex. You get to see her trying to juggle being a detective along with being there for her two boys. It's nice to see a female homicide detective who is apparently well liked be her colleagues and very good at her job.

We get some great secondary characters that I can't say too much about. I really enjoyed Amanda Savard (the lieutenant from IAB) as well as callbacks to book number one.

I thought the writing was very solid. The current case ties into at least two other side plots, but I found that everything works.

The setting of Minneapolis always makes me think of winter. I have no idea why. Probably because most of Hoag's books seem to take place during the fall/winter.

The ending was a gut punch to me. I didn't see the events coming and all I could think was if only at the end. ( )

A pretty good mystery. I kept waiting for them to get proof the deaths were not suicides. The main thing that kept them looking was how much other people wanted them not to. ( )

I thought this book was a good read. (It must have been since I spent my lunch hour reading the last 25 pages or so to find out who-dun-it.) I described the book as a little dark to the friend I've given it too and when she asked what I meant by that I said the characters were not happy, they were depressed. However, I found them very realistic, not one-dimensional like the personae in some mystery novels. If I had to pick a favourite character it would be Sam Kovak, the male homicide detective. His partner, 'Tinks' Liska, is a single mom and her interactions with her kids were well done but I thought some of her decisions about pursuing the case were unrealistic.

The novel is set in Minneapolis just before Christmas. Some of the details about the festive season are very funny, like Kovak's neighbour's massive lighting display. It provides a nice counterpoint to the main action which deals with investigating the violent deaths of a police officer and his father. ( )
