She opens her eyes and struggles to make out the dark room around her. One thing she knows instantly – her wrists are bound and she’s tied to a chair, unable to move. As she screams for help, she hears footsteps outside. He’s coming…
Fifteen-year-old Lindy Rosen has been having nightmares for weeks, waking in a panic, screaming that there’s a man in her room watching her sleep. Her parents assumed it was her overactive imagination, but when one morning they find Lindy missing from her bedroom, they’re not so sure. Detective Jenna Alton is called in to investigate.
Within hours of the schoolgirl going missing, the kidnapper reaches out to Jenna with a video of Lindy bound and tied to a chair, crying to be set free. And a simple message – you’ve got 24 hours to find her or I kill her.
Jenna’s team work around the clock to try to find Lindy before the deadline, but time runs out, and Jenna receives a devastating message. The killer has made good on his promise. He’s playing a dangerous game. And no one knows what his next move will be.
But just two days later, one of Lindy’s school friends is taken in the middle of the night and the countdown begins again.
Completely addictive from the very start, if you like Lisa Regan, Karin Slaughter and Rachel Abbott you’ll love Whisper in the Night.
**Each Kane and Alton book can be read as part of the series or as a standalone**
This is #6 in the Kane and Alton series by DK Hood, but can easily be read as a stand-alone.
In Black Rock Falls, young Lindy has nightmares and she sees a man in her room, the Grim Reaper. Her father reassures her it’s just a dream, but by morning she has disappeared…..
Sheriff Jenna Alton puts the search protocol in place, but she receives a text message and a video, telling her they have 6 hours to find Lindy or she will die….
They do their very best, calling in everyone to help search, including Atohi a Native American to help with tracking…..but they are too late and find her body and a booby trap….
Then another girl goes missing……..the Shadow Man has a plan and Jenna is the ultimate prize….
I love the relationship between Kane and Alton, it’s gradually growing and they clearly have a lot of respect for each other. Both are completely driven in their determination to catch the Shadow Man…..and prevent anymore deaths…..and Duke is a darling character….
This is a stunning thriller, with enough creepy suspects to keep you guessing right to the nerve wracking end…
Thank you to Bookouture for the opportunity to participate in this blog tour and for the promotional materials and a free copy of the ebook. This is my honest, unbiased review.
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.
