Detectives Kane and Alton #8
The sound that wakes her from sleep is unmistakable—someone is in their house. She listens as heavy footsteps start up the stairs, and as the bedroom door is flung open, she doesn’t even have time to scream…
Following a frantic emergency call in the middle of the night, Detective Jenna Alton arrives at a secluded family home to find the body of Lucas Robinson lying in a pool of his own blood in his bed. His wife Carol, shivering in shock, has just watched an intruder shoot her husband in cold blood.
As Jenna investigates the murder, she soon discovers that Lucas was having an affair. And when his mistress is also found strangled to death in the center of the small town, Jenna is convinced that the murderer is living amongst them.
When the killer escalates with a mass murder at a remote ranch on the outskirts of Black Rock Falls, Jenna knows for sure that she’s dealing with a murderer more twisted than any other she’s faced before.
As the town begins to fill with revelers for the annual Halloween festival, Jenna has to work fast to stop any more lives being taken. But as the killer always seems to be one step ahead of the investigation, has she finally met a murderer who can outsmart her?
Oh my, oh my God… This is another cracking story!!!
In my opinion this author really deserves the title of Queen of Suspense. The way she creates an atmosphere is amazing! She had me listening for noises, looking over my shoulder or out the window … I totally had the feeling someone was going to sneak up on me too. Jeezes, that truely is the creepiest thing, but it’s oh so utterly fantastic.
Jenna and her team are great. They always look out for each other and you just have to love Wolfe and Kane. (and Duke of course 🙂 )
She had chills running down my spine and I just could not stop reading. If I’m honest, I was not only reading, I felt like I became part of the story.
Incredibly, mind-blowingly brilliant! 5 stars
Thank you, D.K. Hood and Bookouture
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.
