With the deadly power and pace which readers have come to expect from Tami Hoag's novels, Kill the Messenger, is a gripping race through the dark side of Los Angeles. Courier Jace Damon is called on to make one last pick up at a sleazy defense attorney's office - Leonard Lowell. He sets out for the delivery address, which turns out to be an empty car park. Out of nowhere a car appears and tries to run him down. Fleeing from the unknown assailant giving chase, Jace arrives back at Lowell's office to find it trashed, Lowell dead, and himself the prime suspect. Jace is forced to elude the police and try to clear his name.
