One of the most fabulous thrillers written by D. K. Hood. Her last book was too dark for me, so I was a bit apprehensive with this one. But D. K. Hood proved me wrong on all fronts.
She used a fabulous concept of a pay per view channel and gave it heights that had my adrenaline soaring to a fervored pitch. The team of Jenna – Kane – Wolfe are back at the Black Rock Falls. And I loved every line of this book.
I read this in 3 hours flat and believe me, every part worked fluently to make me anxious to get to the bottom of it. I needed to know who the killer was, stat. And yeah, I didn’t expect the person exposed at the end. The book kept me gripped till the end.
The team worked in great camaraderie, I liked their mutual respect and their movements were fluid. Each one knew the others’ strengths. I keep expecting a romantic angle between Kane and Jenna… Well it just remains a hint of a whisper… Maybe the next book would explore it more!!
I received an ARC from NetGalley and publisher Bookouture, and this is my honest and unbiased opinion.
My rating : 5 stars
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…

I use the app on the phone… Girl, I blog from my phone, I mail, I read, play games, talk, chat, browse… All from my phone🤷🏻🤷🏻
Awesome! I use my iPad and my PC because I have bad eyes. I used to be like you and do everything on the phone. Now I. Need a bigger screen
Same here. Eyes get strained Jen. But somehow my keypad knows what I want to say so easier to type🤷🏻🤷🏻🤔🤔
Ok I have a contact page there
You do love the adrenaline-pumping ones!!
Oh yes!!! How have you been Robbie. I missed you!! But didn’t want to disturb you by pinging on twitter
I’ve missed you too! I’ve been terribly busy with real life stuff… missing the blogosphere like I can’t even describe! How are you?
I am okay, Robs. Ups abd downs part of life. Hope life settles for you and you give me something to read which you are supposed to finish soon 😉😉😂😂 I was trying for cryptic clues but well… Today is not an intelligent day!!
I am getting there, don’t worry! I have changed so much – it has a whole different feel now, I think!
You are fab!!
Fabulous review for a fabulous thriller ♥

This was a fun review to wake up to. Sounds very good. I love it when I can’t figure out who the bad guy is. That tells me the author did a good job. Great review, Shalini. I will be adding this to my TBR list. Enjoy the rest of your weekend! 🙂
This was a great book, Leslie… Have a great weekend!!! ❤️❤️ Sorry, typing this on the go!!!
Fabulous enthusiastic review! Well shoot I wasn’t going to read this one and now you are tempting me! Must be karma, LOL!💕
Hahaha but this was really good. Last book has child abuse, this was fun
You are killing me with your excellent picks – my TBR is already obese and near heart failure thanx to you 😉
I can resuscitate humans not TBR pile as that is beyond impossible 😉😉😂😂
Wow, only 3 hours. This sounds like one I should check out. Nice review Shalini, a good thriller.
Thanks Carla. It was a good read
WoooHooo!!!! A 5 star read for Shalini!!!! Very happy you enjoy this one.
Hey Nina, how you doing, girl. I miss you. Yes, I have had some fab reads… And all posts for this month scheduled BAM except for Jay’s book. With Jay, there are so many emotions attached that I am locked. Actually it’s the same for you.. I am so afraid that I am going to cry if I write something for you… Nina babe, the feelings are all there… Here I go being brain blocked sheesh!! Hope you understand. With all my love in every cell of my body, I was going to write with every nucleus if every cell of my body… Ah well.. ♥️♥️😘😘
You are such a darling. ♥️♥️♥️
And I do understand what you mean. Sometimes there is just too much emotion for words to do justice. 🌸🌸
Thank you Shalini for this five starer
Thank you Kurian. How’s life
Great Shalini. A lot of stress on fitness and just decided to take it in smaller strides.
Thank you for asking and how have you been?
I have been okay. Ups and downs are part life. So
Take care Shalini. I just want to reiterate that you are a very valuable favourite
Yap! My initial assessment about you was correct, you’re superhuman 🙂 3 hours is pretty fast though it definitely goes to show just how wonderful, addictive this book is. I think I am missing out by not reading this series. Definitely need to correct that. Fab review, Shalini 🙂
Hey Diana, those are few mad days when I can read the book with deep concentration. Most days I can’t with work and various distractions… 🙈🙈 Have read one since the past 3 days sheesh!!
Nice to see your post 👍
Wow, 5 stars already? Looks like something has got us gripping.
Oh yes, fab read. How you doing
I have been okay!! How about you?
Mehhh having few down more than ups.. Tomorrow is a new week fingers crossed
I have come down to tomorrow is a new day, so fingers crossed!!
2018 really not great!
I understand.. I had great dreams for 2018 most broke. But there are 2 months left, so fingers crossed
The more I talk to people the more I realise that 2018 has proven to b ego wrong, to every single one I know.
I don’t understand what is up with that.
PS: Me too counting days.
