Prior Bad Acts (2006)

EW's GRADE
B

Details Release Date: Mar 21, 2006; Writer: Tami Hoag; Genres: Fiction, Mystery and Thriller; Publisher: Bantam

Shortly after delivering an unpopular ruling in a triple murder case, Judge Carey Moore is brutally attacked. Two cops are assigned to protect her — but from whom?

Stock Character Det. Sam Kovacs, who ''looked like an old tomcat that had taken his share of licks in alley fights and had dished out plenty of his own.''

Body Count Nine.

Bottom Line Hoag is a pro, delivering a snappy, scary thriller marred only by its cookie-cutter plot.
