Her head throbbed as she stumbled 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 and thighs 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?

Wow, wow, wow D.K. Hood nailed it again in her fabulous Detectives Kane and Alton series. I just can’t get enough this series and keep craving more and more. Even though this book is part of a series it can be read out of order or even as a stand alone.
This book is about a detective that won’t give up on finding a woman’s rapist or even worse rapists. While this detective investigates the rape all her suspects keep dying. Were they killed for revenge or were they so remorseful that they took their own life? The truth does come out in the end.
This book is not for the faint of heart. It does talk about a serious issue that goes on in colleges all the time that no one wants to talk about. With that said, I absolutely loved this book. I loved the fact that all the characters meshed so well together. The police department in this town is really small and they are like family to each other which I loved. They all have each other’s back and work really well together. Also, I loved the storyline. This kind of story is not talked about enough and we need more books like this one. Oh boy did I love the end as well. Justice was definitely served on a platter. I couldn’t have asked for a better end to a wonderful story. Kudos to DK Hood.
Between the plot, characters and all the twists in this book it made it an easy and fast read. I would definitely recommend it and happily give it 5 Hearts❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
