    Extremely Good

    Her Shallow Grave is the ninth in the police procedural series featuring Detectives David Kane and Jenna Alton. I believe the author, D.K. Hood provided enough background for any new reader starting here to feel comfortable with the characters and setting. Set in Black Rock Falls, Montana, Sheriff Jenna Alton makes a very likeable detective although she is sometimes a little short on inspiration. However, Jenna has a good team to handle crime in the small town, which seems to have more than its fair share of murders. Her deputy, David Kane is a former Special Forces marksman with exceptional profiling skills. This novel was an electrifying and solid police procedural and it was a well-balanced thriller that had me glued to the pages. I didn't want to put it down as I was desperate to know the outcome of the story. Even though Black Rock Falls was such a small place, Jenna and her team were still left with a lot of work to do in a very tangled web of mystery. This really was a spectacular crime-thriller that grabbed me hook, line and sinker. The team embarked on an exciting and exhilarating mission to find the perpetrator and all the time the tension snowballed as D.K. Hood launched at me some captivating misdirection and planted a few red herrings. The writing flowed effortlessly and swiftly as Her Shallow Grave delved into the topic of murder, both actual and attempted, with doses of stalking and harassment. I will be seeking out the first five instalments of this masterful series. A brilliant, grisly, atmospheric and very highly recommended crime-thriller. I received a complimentary copy of this novel at my request from Bookouture via NetGalley. This review is my own unbiased opinion.

    Enjoyable story

    Alton and Kane are out skiing at the Glacial Heights Ski resort near Black Rock Falls when Kane comes across dismembered body parts hanging from the trees. Seems there is another killer in town. Soon there is another body. But how many has the 'Preacher' killed over the years. To complicate matters it would seem that Kane has a stalker. Another enjoyable and well-written murder mystery with its cast of varied and interesting characters. Another fine edition to the series

    Thoroughly Entertaining and Ultimately Scary

    Thanks once again to #NetGalley and #Bookouture for the opportunity to read and review "Her Shallow Grave" by #DKHood. Welcome to the 9th book in the Detectives Kane and Alton series - all of which I have read and thoroughly enjoyed (although, 'enjoying' serial killer mysteries is perhaps a misnomer). And, welcome to Black Rock Falls, where it can go from zero to serial murder overnight. And this one's a doozie! Jenna Alton and Dave Kane are enjoying a little ski vacation when there is a report of 'a tree decorated with body parts'. So much for a break in the mayhem! Hoping that it's a prank, but knowing that it probably isn't, they mobilize the troops and we're once again on the hunt for a killer. When more bodies and body parts begin showing up around town - I'd become a hermit if I lived in Black Rock Falls, for fear of finding one of the current SK's trophies - they get the feeling that the current perpetrator may not be a local phenomenon; so they place a call to Jo Wells and her partner Carter and soon discover that they may actually be on the hunt for "The Sculptor". Unfortunately, Wells and Carter are snowed in and can only assist by phone, but the chemistry between both Jenna & Dave and Wells & Carter is still there. In the midst of their hunt for this newest killer, Dave breaks up a kidnapping and possible rape; earning the gratitude of the prospective victim - who unwisely mistakes his rescue for a romantic gesture. Her stalking gets worse and worse, and the outcome is not pretty (for her). Ultimately, the search for "The Sculptor" is another rip-roaring addition to the Alton & Kane saga. Highly recommended.

    Her Shallow Grave-D.K. Hood

    A tense story of a serial killer leaving ice sculptured bodies around the countryside. A good read and a taught ending. a story that once you start reading you will not want to put it down. Another good read from D.K. Hood, eagerly waiting for the next book. I have enjoyed all of this series stories.

    Taut, suspenseful too to toe!😲

    ⏳A serial killer with ice sculpture! and one woman on his mind: thrills, action and lots of snow!❄ This latest in D.K. Hood's series about the perils of keeping the peace in rural Montana is gruesome and tense. A serial killer has chosen Sheriff Alton's jurisdiction to display his diabolical mutilation of some unidentified young women. Alton fears the killer's victims are attracted to the area by news stories touting the ready access to homeless shelters in a time of body-numbing cold. With low population density and lots of forest and remote country to hide in, it's perfect territory for the killer's lair. Hood keeps the suspense up right through the high action climax. And it's not only young homeless women who are put in danger. There's a sideplot involving Detective Kane and a local redhead that adds some good extra flair to the plot and even Medical Examiner Wolfe's daughter draws the killer's notice.😲 This was the third book I've read in the series and the author always keeps me guessing right to the end. I will definitely be looking to read more works by D.K. Hood! Thanks to publishers Bookouture and NetGalley for providing an advance copy of the book; this is my voluntary and honest review.
