As she opened her eyes and took in her surroundings a feeling of terror ran through her weakened body. She knew exactly where she was. And she knew exactly what was about to happen to her...
When Ella Tate stumbles into Black Rock Falls, her exhausted and bloodied body is a terrifying sight, but not as frightening as the story she has to tell. Ambushed on their way into town when they stopped to help a man by the side of the highway, Ella and her friend Sky ran when he pulled an ax on them. But only one of them got away.
As Detective Jenna Alton investigates the case, she looks into the history of missing persons in the town, and uncovers more cases - all young people. All stopped on the same stretch of highway into town. All vanished without a trace.
When a distinctive pink sweater belonging to Sky turns up in Black Rock Falls, Jenna follows the trail to a derelict building on the outskirts of town. But she isn't prepared for what lies behind those doors. Can she stop the killer before more lives are lost?
If you like Robert Dugoni, Karin Slaughter and Rachel Abbott you'll love this nail-biting thriller from D.K. Hood.

✮ My Review ✮
And Ms Hood has knocked it out of the park again with this latest instalment. Where I thought the last book was dark and twisty and my god it was, this one was darker! She wasn’t lying when she updated her statuses to say it was darker than before! Reading this book, and other crime books I don’t think I can ever do a good deed for anyone ever again, so don’t ask me! I want to survive!!
It was great to be back with Alton and Kane, I will admit after the last book I’ve been worried about my #bookcrush David Kane, how would he be now? Does he have his memories? Where does it all leave him and Alton? Aaah so many questions needing an
With every book I read of this series, just gets stronger and stronger. The backdrop of Black Rock Falls is still somewhere I would love to visit but….maybe not in serial killer season because you know that is a thing!!
I have not been this on edge by a book in such a long time, with the days of the weeks leading the chapters, how much detail for one day! Dr Weaver had me panicking, Sky the missing girl had me gritting my teeth with fear, and the killer well I was would love to read it under the duvet and hope I’m never found. Where
Like with all my reviews I won’t rehash the plot or talk about the blurb, what you need to know is I am ABSOLUTELY BLOODY LOVED IT!!! You need to read this series and when you do you will meet one of the most amazing families in a Police department. They’ve come a long way since book one and soldiers have fallen but they are strong and they have each other. If this book series is not on your radar why not, seriously go and change that straight away, go on what are you waiting for, if you need an invitation here it is!!! Now GO!
Until next time xxx
