Hurrying along the dark, snow-covered path, she knows she’s not alone when she hears the light tread of someone behind her. Panic rising in her chest, she picks up the pace. But she doesn’t even have a chance to scream before everything goes black.
When a beautiful young woman is reported missing from her hotel room on the outskirts of Black Rock Falls, Sheriff Jenna Alton and her deputy David Kane are devastated to discover her pale, lifeless body trapped beneath a frozen lake nearby. It’s Jenna who finds the single pearl earring buried in the frosted grass that gives them their first lead.
Just as Jenna has the remaining hotel guests safely back in their rooms, the killer strikes again, and another victim is found in one of the hotel’s lakeside cabins. Next to his bloodied body is a second pearl earring. What does it mean, and why is the killer leaving them for Jenna to find?
Interviewing witnesses, Jenna discovers that both victims were seen arguing with other residents hours before their deaths. Could the murderer be out for revenge, and how many more bodies will follow before they are truly satisfied?
As a blizzard cuts the hotel off from Black Rock Falls, Jenna and her team are trapped with the killer. Then she receives a terrifying call from a teenage girl who thinks the murderer was in her room as she slept. Can Jenna save her from becoming the next victim? And how many more innocent lives will be taken before the snow thaws?
Fans of Lisa Regan, Melinda Leigh and Kendra Elliot will love this gripping and addictive thriller from USA Today bestselling author D.K. Hood. Prepare to stay up all night!

Oooh I love this deliciously dark isolating tale! This is the first time I have thought, oh you can read this as a standalone but then, I stopped myself! No no no no, too much has happened and more is happening! So read the series!

I loved the isolation of this book, being in a ski resort, the cold and the darkness surrounding you amplifies the terror and fear so well in this book. I mean I LOVE skiing but I don’t think I could stay somewhere like here! Add on the chapters from the killer and their calculating thoughts and inner amusements, all adding to the horrors we find with each page turned!

However, don’t get me wrong I do wish this fictional town was real so I could go and visit. Despite the location of the new cake shop, I want to visit it! It sounded lush. The town always sounds so quaint and I really want to go to Aunt Betty’s!!!

Outside the murders and the isolation, so much is going on with the team – I can’t say too much because well spoiler! However, we do wonder whether things will be the same. I have to say, I do feel sorry for the team because they definitely get put through the wringer!

All I can say is I loved this instalment and I just think we have no signs of slowing down….well I hope not! A world without Dave and Jenna just doesn’t bear thinking about!

Until the next time xxx

About D.K Hood

I’ve always had a wicked sense of humor, 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 wonderful vacations in many countries. I love the rugged beauty of Montana and can’t wait to return.
I use the memories from my travels to enhance my stories.

My interest in the development of forensic science to solve crime goes back many years. It was one subject I enjoyed studying and with the constant advances, it never gets boring.

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.
