Kill the Messenger is a fast paced thriller with an interesting lead character, Jace, a bicycle messenger. Both Jace and his brother Tyler are well developed characters. After their mother died, Jace at age 14 strikes out on his own so that he and his brother's won't be orphans, getting an apartment in Chinatown and working at a fish market. Jace is at the wrong place at the wrong time, while sending a message on his bike, someone attempts to kill him. From there, he gets embroiled in a murder investigation and has to do his best to escape the authorities and the people who are trying to kill him. The book is well written. It moves along quickly and has good characters. I've read other Tami Hoag novels that have fallen short, and this is the best of her novels I've read.
