Tami Hoag, in A Thin Dark Line writes a very engaging and suspenseful story I could NOT outguess. Just shy of 500 pages, don't try for a one night stand with this volume, although you'll WANT to...
Inevitably, there's a "he" and a "she", unlikely pair, who are thrown together, but don't think Harlequin romance... Tami has my vote for the best comeback, "With as much cool and dignity as she could muster, she looked at Nick and said, 'Excuse me. I have to go throw up now."
No, the character is NOT drunk, nor pregnant.
I roared with laughter. I was glad I was at home, rather than at school, when I hit that one.
