This is a book that revolves around the Palm Beach elite and the lengths that they are prepared to go to protect their own. Some of the people they class as their own are a group of powerful and wealthy Palm Beach bad boys, who call themselves the Alibi Club, a name that is self explanatory. In any other society they would have been locked up a long time ago and the key thrown away, but this group have a knack of escaping the law. Well escaping the law is one thing, but escaping justice is another.

In Alibi Man, a young woman who tends to horses working at an affluent estate is killed. Elena Estes finds the body. A former cop, she begins to do her own investigation of the murder. Meanwhile, Detective Landrey, Elena's love interest is also performing an investigation. The investigation leads to a group of ultra-wealthy, socially elite individuals who have a club, which will always give an alibi to one of their members. At the heart of this book is class warfare. The members of the upper crust in this novel believe they can do whatever they want without any repercussions. Elena and Landrey are there to see that this doesn't happen. The novel is solidly written with enough intrigue to sustain interest. There's nothing about it that really stands out, but it is an entertaining read.

For some reason I did not finish this book. Strange because I rarely never finish a book and Tami Hoag is one of my favourite authors

She was a vision. She was a siren. She was a nightmare. She was dead. Now he needed her to disappear. And he knew just how to make it happen. 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. Betrayed and disillusioned by those closest to her, she chose the life of an undercover cop, the hunt for justice her own personal passion. Then a tragic, haunting mistake ended her career. Now Elena exists on the fringes of her old life, training horses for a living. But a shocking event is about to draw her back into the painful vortex she’s fought so hard to leave behind.

First she finds the body—a young woman used, murdered, and dumped in a canal. Not just a victim, but a friend. As Elena delves into her dead friend’s secret life, she discovers ties not only to the Russian mob but also to a group of powerful and wealthy Palm Beach bad boys known for giving each other alibis to cover a multitude of sins. A group that includes a man Elena once knew very well—her former fiancé, Bennett Walker, a man she knows has already escaped justice at least once in his life.

Finding her friend’s killer will put Elena at odds with her old life, with her new lover, and with herself. But she is determined to reveal the truth—a truth that will shock Palm Beach society to its core, and could very well get her killed. ( )

Quick read mystery about the amoral super rich. Nothing great, but good book to pass a slow half day with. ( )
