Detectives Kane and Alton #15
She glances around as she locks the café door behind her. It’s growing dark and the quiet street is deserted. Tired, she starts on her short walk home. She thinks she’ll be safe inside within minutes, but the person watching from the shadows has other plans for her tonight…
When the body of a young woman is discovered in a local playground in the center of Black Rock Falls, Sheriff Jenna Alton and her deputy David Kane rush to the scene. Jenna recoils with horror when she sees the body, dressed in a thin nightgown, her face covered by a terrifying Halloween mask.
When the body is examined, red puncture marks are uncovered along her spine. Jenna makes a connection with a cold case where the killer tortured young women for years and was never caught. If the murderer has started killing again, Jenna knows it’s only a matter of time before another body is found.
Days later, when another victim lays slumped against the fence of a local landfill site, with the same puncture wounds and macabre mask, Jenna’s fears are confirmed. A serial killer is back in town and they’re picking off women one by one.
Then, as a third body is found, Jenna finally gets the breakthrough she needs. Dirt found underneath the women’s fingernails leads to a dangerous cave network in the mountains outside town. And once Jenna ventures into the dark, winding underground tunnels, will she find the person responsible for the deaths and take them down, or has she just walked into the killer’s trap?
Oh wow, back in Black Rock Falls and it’s, once again, amazing to follow this great duo Jenna and Dave. Of course they could not discover the baddies on their own and they have their wonderful team to depend up on.
It has been quiet in the small town, but it never stays that way for a very long time. It’s a paradise for killers or I might even say serial killers and nobody is happy when a victim turns up, but this culprit has a very bad timing. Well, bad in Jenna’s schedule anyway. She had something totally different planned. Will she go through with it and leave the case in her team’s capable hands or will she decide otherwise?
The killer however does not seem to show any signs of stopping what he is doing and he leaves the police force with more questions than answers. Even with the help of FBI agents Carter and Jo they still struggle to come any closer until suddenly there is a breakthrough and it’s all hands on deck.
Time is crucial, as always…
Jenna is not easily scared and with Dave having her back, she is capable of doing things she might not have done without him. She counts and relies on him, but she does not want to him to be overprotective. She wants to show him she can be her own person too.
This time it’s not only a vicious killer who is life threatening…
Another fantastic story with bone chilling bits, but with room for love and happiness too. 5 stars
