Detectives Kane and Alton #11
Gray clouds gather overhead as she runs along the dark road. Not a soul is out in the storm, or so she thinks. As the vehicle pulls up alongside her, she sees a familiar face behind the wheel and thinks she’s safe. Little does she know, she has just put herself in unthinkable danger…
When local cheerleader, Laurie Turner, goes missing after practice and her bright red pick-up truck is found abandoned by the side of a quiet road, Detective Jenna Alton fears the worst.
Visiting Laurie’s family house, Jenna senses that the teenager’s home life isn’t as perfect as her father would have people believe. Quick to temper and full of hatred towards Laurie’s mother, Dr Turner doesn’t seem to know the first thing about his own daughter, let alone how long she’s been missing for.
With the clock ticking, the whole town takes to the streets to find the missing girl and, after a frantic search, a terrible discovery is made at the bottom of an old mine shaft on the outskirts of town. Laurie’s pale body is totally still and Jenna is sure somebody in the local community is her killer.
When another cheerleader goes missing, Jenna thinks that someone close to the school is picking the teenagers off one by one. As she talks to the other students, it becomes clear that there are plenty of people who’d like to silence the girls forever.
Then her own deputy David Kane comes face to face with the murderer, and Jenna has to race to save him. Can she do so before it’s too late? Or will another young life be taken?
**Each Kane and Alton book can be read as part of the series or as a standalone**
Party time over here, because book 11 in this incredible series was my next read!
The author, once again, had me captivated from the start, messed with my head and had me in tears.
Sheriff Jenna and her team have to do overtime again because they are dealing with some horrible cases. Nothing seems to add up and they have a long list of suspects to keep an eye on. There are too many so they are forced to ask help and Jo and Ty join in too.
Together they manage to find more (confusing) evidence, but they untangle the web little by little. They can remove names from their list and expose the baddies. Baddies who thought they were more clever and indeed they succeeded to fool the police for a while. Don’t mess with the team though, because they will search until they find them and put them where you belong: behind bars.
Black Rock Falls seems like a nice place to live. Unfortunately some crazy killers have the same idea. I guess I will not start packing yet. 😉
I hope the author has a lot of inspiration left to keep this series going for a very long time. Impossible for me to give less than 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.
