What The Book Says
The light fades as she runs for her life, the forest now becoming quieter around her. The only noise she hears is the sound of footsteps following her…
It’s hiking season in Black Rock Falls and the small town in Montana is flooded with visitors. But when a hiker finds a human skull on a deserted trail in the woods that surround the town, Detective Jenna Alton is called in to investigate.
With no missing persons reported, Jenna has no leads. Then her team makes a shocking discovery – the body of another hiker, a young man, tied to a tree and riddled with bullets. Could the two murders be linked?
As more bodies are found, Jenna and her deputy David Kane know that they must venture deep into the forest to find and face the killer. But nothing can prepare them for what awaits them there…
If you love Robert Dugoni, Karin Slaughter and Rachel Abbott you’ll love this nail-biting thriller from D.K. Hood.
Can’t believe we are sitting at Book 4 in the Detective Kane & Alton series, The Crying Season, and I’m loving it, loving it.
Where did D.K Hood take the newest instalment, OMG she plunged me into the deepest, darkest depths and back again, how could I possibly deny my shock and awe, from such a depraved killer who hunts, stalks and murders with an unsurmountable desire.
Hood catapulted us straight into the gruesome with the discovery of a skull, a human skull, by a couple walking the trails. Black Rock Falls is developing a name, seemingly a magnet for serial killers, Sheriff Alton and Detective Kane have to use all their experience to outwit the killer before more people die.
I really love the dynamics surrounding Alton and Kane, they have a wealth of experience and knowledge which each utilise effectively when on the trail of a predator, they certainly are a “got your back” stereotypical pairing, but the tooing and froing of them will they, won’t they, is driving me nuts, they need too. Okay so I just want to see a thriller where the two characters like each other actually do something about it, hahahaha.
Okay so match making not my forte, but raving about a damn good crime thriller, with characters well suited to the scenarios unfolding before my eyes absolutely, definitely, just see if you can stop me.
I can’t possibly shout out enough about D.K. Hood’s phenomenal book series but I can, I will, but my ultimate test is the waiting for Book 5.
Thanks to Bookouture, D.K. Hood and Noelle Holten for my advanced readers copy of The Crying Season. It has been a pleasure to read and review the book and to be part of the Blog Tour, giving my own unbiased opinion.
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.
