As she opened her eyes and took in her surroundings, a feeling of terror ran through her weakened body. She knew exactly where she was. And she knew exactly what was about to happen to her…
When Ella Tate stumbles into Black Rock Falls, her exhausted and bloodied body is a terrifying sight, but not as frightening as the story she has to tell. Ambushed on their way into town when they stopped to help a man by the side of the road, Ella and her friend Sky ran when he pulled a knife on them. But only one of them got away.
As Detective Jenna Alton investigates the case, she looks into the history of missing persons in the town, and uncovers more cases – all young people. All stopped on the same stretch of road into town. All vanished without a trace.
When a distinctive pink sweater belonging to Sky turns up in Black Rock Falls, Jenna follows the trail to a derelict building on the outskirts of town. But she isn’t prepared for what lies behind those doors. Can she stop the killer before more lives are lost?
Book 5 in the series and my 3rd one. It would be impossible to say which one is my fafvourite, because they are all gems.
I love the way the author has invented such interesting and intriguiing past for some of the police officers. It gives them an extra bit of spice.
Of course people are attracted to series due to their feelings towards the returning characters, but that is not enough. People also want stories filled with suspense and other emotions. Needless to say that this author knows perfectly how to combine all those things and mixes them into a tasty cocktail.
I had chills running down my spine and my stomach sometimes felt like it had gone through a shredder. The interaction between the team members certainly increases the reading pleasure.
At a given moment I had a lump in my throat and I liked the jokey tone at the end of the story.
The author left me no choice. I just had to dip into my pocket and pull the 5 stars card out of it.
Thank you, DK Hood, Bookouture and Netgalley.
About the author
I’ve always had a wicked sense of humour and was the kid who told the ghost stories around the campfire. I am lucky to have family all over the world and have spent many vacations in places from Paris France to Montana USA and Australia. I use the wonderful memories from these visits to enhance my stories.
My interest in the development of forensic science to solve crime goes back many years. I enjoy writing crime, mystery and thrillers. With many stories, waiting for me to write I’ll look forward to sharing many spine-tingling stories with you.
