  • Took my breath away

    Took my breath away! This series is the gift that keeps on giving long after I finish the book. Another fantastic story line. Explosive, all encompassing emotional train ride. Twist, turns and a surprise at the end that not only made Jenna gasp, but me too. If you like suspense and reading books that make you feel the horror, the anguish the hope this is the series for you. If you haven't read them yet go grab book 1. Each book can be read as a stand alone, but why deprive yourself. I will say I figured out who was behind it, which is a fluke, because D.K.Hood has so many tricks up her sleeve that I am usually wrong but how it was all connected, what it meant to all was heart wrenching. Thank you D.K.Hood, thank you Bookouture and Net Galley for the is awesome opportunity to read and review. I freely volunteer my thoughts and opinions and highly recommend this series.

  • Entertaining read

    It's been a quiet several months in Black Rock Falls, but then a house explosion in nearby Lohan means an investigation for Alton and Kane especially when thrree bodies are discovered. They soon realise that they need the help of the local FBI team particularly when they discover that not all of the Woods family died in the deliberate explosion. But more is to come. What is the possible connection between the victims, is there actually one. Another interesting serial killer story with its cast of varied characters. Another good addition to the series.

  • Action-packed series

    Promises in the Dark by D.K. Hood is the 10th in the Detectives Kane and Alton series. First, let me thank NetGalley, the publisher Bookouture, and of course the author, for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. Series Background:   (Warning – May contain spoilers from previous books) Former DEA, Jenna Alton is now the Sheriff in Black Rock Falls, Montana.  Her past is a secret.  Deputy David Kane's background is also a secret.  He was a Special Forces sharpshooter, and a bodyguard to the President.  Then there is Forensic Scientist Shane Wolfe, who is not only a Medical Examiner with amazing computer skills, he used to be Kane’s handler. So, with a few other deputies, Jenna has a good team to handle crime in the small Black Rock Falls town, which seems to have more murders than a small town should. My Synopsis:   (No major reveals, but if concerned, skip to My Opinions) A young girl is kidnapped, and as she watches, her kidnapper blows up her house, with her parents and sister still inside. Although it is outside of Jenna's jurisdiction, FBI Agents Jo and Carter are investigating the bombing, and ask for Jenna's assistance. Although the girl is found dead,  Jenna and Dave remain with the case.  This bomber has a direct link to Dave, and Jenna fears for her Deputy. When another girl is taken, the trail leads to an underground network of caves just outside of town.  My Opinions:   I was pleased to again see Jo and Carter from the FBI, although I cannot warm up to Carter.  This book has not increased my love for him.  However, I love Jo. It was interesting having a little more insight into Dave's background.  I like the way the author shows the sensitive sides of most characters in addition to their strengths. As always, there was a lot of action, and although I deduced the identity of the perpetrator early on, there were enough other suspects to keep me interested in their stories.  The plot was great, and I have to say that this was probably the best in this series so far. I recommend reading the books in order, as backgrounds are important.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Kane's chance to avenge; thrill a minute😧

    Tense, taut and terror-fraught: Sheriff Alton & Co. face a sadistic 🔥pyromaniac😥 This story has non-stop action and, as usual with this series, a sicko criminal on the loose. From the first horrible events at the book's start when a five year-old innocent is led to her death in the family kitchen, I was emotionally caught up in the search for a cruel, cold killer ready to blot out a whole family and revel in their terror and pain before their fiery demise. Several of the main characters have a very personal stake in finding the pyromaniac assassin and rapist whose crimes extend from Washington, D.C. to rural Montana. Yes, the investigation was a page-turner even though I had guessed the murderer's identity way before he reveals himself to Sheriff Jenna Alton. But I was still held to the plot by his trail of destruction and the suspense of learning when the FBI team would catch him out. The lead women in the story are strong, confident, intelligent and not prone to stand for the rampant sexism they encounter. And I love that Medical Examiner Wolfe, a single father raising four daughters, has taught his girls to be cautious, savvy and strong in an emergency. Kane's tragic backstory is a key element. He's shown in a much more emotional and sympathetic light than in the other books in the series I've read. Good writing, great plot and oodles of urgent tension made this a gem of a read. Thanks to publishers Bookouture and NetGalley for providing an advance copy of the book; this is my voluntary and honest review.
