By F J Masterman The PlanetCare Discoveries See all my reviews Although I have been a fan of Tami Hoag for her former novels, The Alibi Man has put her at the top of my favorite writer list This fast moving story, centered on the corruption of wealthy Palm Beach society, is one of long overdue justice finally coming home The protagonist, the former detective Elena Estes, is one of the most compelling characters I have come across in reading She is flawed, fearless and entirely engaging Though there are several points of view in the story, she is the primary voice, and whenever she s on there s literary electricity that made me not to want her to stop A marvelous characterization, and although other persons in the story are well drawn out especially James Landry, whose unrequited love for her is a wonderfully understated theme none come close to Elena Her reflections, attitude, and honest internal conflicts make the entire novel a powerful experience Elena was introduced in Dark Horse, which I also thoroughly enjoyed, but she blossoms into a fully deep and real person in The Alibi Man I only hope the author will choose to create another story with her as protagonist She s an unqualified winner. Pdf ☣ The Alibi Man ♩ Amazing Ebook, The Alibi Man Author Tami Hoag This Is Very Good And Becomes The Main Topic To Read, The Readers Are Very Takjup And Always Take Inspiration From The Contents Of The Book The Alibi Man, Essay By Tami Hoag Is Now On Our Website And You Can Download It By Register What Are You Waiting For Please Read And Make A Refission For You I usually like Hoag The mystery in this is good, but the main character, Elena Estes is obnoxious.I am not the type of person who has to like a character to like them I mean like in terms of, like to have tea with them or something Some of my favorite characters of all time are awful people and I detest them, but they re compelling There is nothing compelling about Estes She is whiny and mean spirited and so terribly sorry for herself She is the type of person who loves their own pain, and those type of people are tedious.It is true, her life has been tough and bad things have happened, but instead of that making her interesting or sympathetic, I jusrt want toshake her a little bit, tell her to get over it and, f the memories are SO painful then move to a new place and start over Instead, we have a wallowing heroine mucking up a perfectly good mystery. Great bookalthough I didn t realize that I should have read Dark Horse 1st Oh wellI am looking forward to of Elena Estes adventures. The Palm Beach elite go to great lengths to protect their own and their own no longer includes Elena Estes Once upon a time a child of wealth and privilege, Elena turned her back on that life and chose the life of an undercover cop Then a tragic, haunting mistake ended her career Now Elena exists on the fringes of her old life But a shocking event is about to draw her back into the painful vortex she s fought so hard to leave behind Elena stumbles upon the body of her groom horse farm and calls Landry She can t keep her nose out of the mystery and uncovers many details that Landry doesn t have access too She s a great detective but the attitude gets annoying real quickly.This was a great read The surprise ending truly catches you by surprise I honestly didn t see it coming I tried to guess the killer but was once again wrong. A good ending, but not much in the way of twistinessI think Juan s redemption was forced and too quick, bad men don t see their horrible ways and change that on a dime. Elena finds the body of her friend floating in a canal following a horse ride.Having been a cop herself before she does her own investigations following the murder.Based on some pictures of whom Irina the victim spent time with,she is drawn back into a world she left long ago.an interesting read This was a good follow up to the first book in the series I was pulled into this book faster than the first one in the series since I was already familiar with some of the characters Again, I liked the mystery that Ms Hoag created and aside from the 1st person POV, liked the writing style One of the few negatives again was the lead female character, Elena Although I like strong females, she also managed to get on my nerves as she pushed everyone away and tends to be bitter carries a ton of guilt. Second installment in the Elena Estes series is solid.I think Elena s character has depth in this particular, partly because we learn about her past and thus her vulnerabilities The romantic tension between her and Landry is also well played out.Should enjoy this if you are a Hoag fan.The only downside to Hoag s writing is that she often reuses some of the same devices between books and between series For example, this is the second series in which the protagonist s best friend has been a stereotypical gay man.Still, I love her ability to construct a good mystery that keeps you guessing, sometimes right up until the end.
