Publisher Description

‘OMG… The whole time I sat on the edge of my more than once crying ‘oh, nooooo!’… really fast paced with an all-consuming air of danger and suspense.’ B for Bookreview, 5 stars

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.

**Each Kane and Alton book can be read as part of the series or as a standalone**

Good book but..

One thing I can’t stand about these books is that for supposedly having special training they all are dense. They always have tunnel vision and assume people are guilty without any proof. Never think it could be anyone else outside of their few suspects. Cmon, even I knew certain things. Jenna is annoying. This book was better than the previous one and I did enjoy the action at the end and overall.
