Break the Silence – D.K. Hood / #Review #BooksOnTour @bookouture @DKHood_Author



Detectives Kane and Alton #7

Her head throbbed as she stumbles up the stairs. Music vibrating and the sound of partygoers fill her head as she walks into one of the dark, empty rooms. As she sits on the bed, she hears the unmistakable sound of the door locking behind her. She is not alone.

The body of college student Chrissie Lowe lies curled into a ball – long red cuts along her arms suggesting how she had met her death. Detective Jenna Alton is called in to investigate.

Purplish bruising on Chrissie’s upper arms make Jenna believe there is more to Chrissie’s death than others suspected, and she soon finds herself following the trail of the student’s last few moments, leading her to the scene of a party that had ended just hours before Chrissie’s body was found.

When Jenna hears reports that Chrissie was seen going into the bedroom of a college football star, she knows that finding out what went on behind that closed door could be the key to finding out how Chrissie ended up dead. But then another partygoer dies in an apparent accident at the campus gym just hours later, and Jenna is convinced the deaths are connected.

Facing a wall of silence from the student population, Jenna has to act fast to find the killer, but soon another student is found dead on the campus. As Jenna sends in one of her deputies undercover, she prays that she hasn’t just sealed his fate. Can she find the killer before any more lives are taken? 



My review

Being able to take part in blog tours is a godsend, but it’s also a bit of a curse. You get to know so many wonderful authors that you become greedy. You love their works so much that you just have to devour their next book. Nothing is able to stop you. It’s beyond your control, but the satisfaction you receive at the end of each and everyone of those stories is pure heaven.

This is what happened with this book as well. I love this series so much because I know the author is a born storyteller. It’s like Christmas and your birthday fell on the same day. It’s utter bliss.

Unwrapping a gift is nice but ‘unwrapping’ a story like this is even more so.

You might think you have everything covered and nobody will be able to touch you, but the truth will always come out. Well, … Always…??

Sherrif Alton and her team have a lot to deal with.

I just loved this book! 5 stars.

Thank you, D.K. Hood and Bookouture
