This book stands alone well, even though it is part of a series. Reading Book 1 does add to the understanding of the characters feelings and motivations, though. The author, D.K. Hood, brings to life the hard and complex work needed to protect a town and bring a killer to justice. The surprises are teasers for the solution of this imaginative who-done-it! A very entertaining read!
The Kane and Alton series is really great. I find it very hard to put these books down. Although I figured out the culprit early on, it was still a great twist. The characters are well written. I enjoy the way these crimes are investigated. Kane and Alton have a unique relationship that you don't often see. The addition of the new deputy was a masterful way to incorporate more intrigue and a way to delve deeper in the forensics side of the investigation.
I recommend this series to anyone who likes a well written crime, suspense, thriller, or mystery book. It is a bonus that is is a series.

Right - the story ... My, my, my. What a tale. The murder of a young girl in a beautiful patch of forest sparks a harrowing investigation for Jenna Alton, Dave Kane and new deputy Shane Wolfe. Just why was the victim chosen and was it a crime of passion or the start of something darker. The girl was only sixteen, the pool of suspects constantly growing, not helped by the arrival in town of the local Rodeo stars, the men that every woman and woman-to-be want to be with. As the situation escalates just how far will everybody be pushed and how far is the killer willing to go? Well... why not pick up a copy of the book and find out for yourself? You know you want to.
What I enjoyed about this book was the characterisation and the development of the police team. You have a mixture of characters in there but it is clear that with the addition of Shane Wolfe to the team, a man with a surprising past, Jenna Alton has a formidable team around her. And this is just as well as she is going to need it. The violence in this book is kept off the page, but there is no doubt left in the readers mind as to what has happened or the level or torment inflicted upon the victims. It is kind of toe curling if you stop to think about it properly and the sense of danger is never far away.
Jenna is an interesting character. She has a unique history, at least in terms of her law enforcement career and she has the strange mixture of both tenacity and vulnerability which actually makes her a very likeable character. Her relationship with Kane is great, somewhere between professional and romantic and it is obvious that if I read the first book I'll have a better understanding of just where this has come from. Kane is another great character, but one who finds himself in a little potential hot water later in the novel. I'll say no more about that but it's so hot it's practically scalding.
When you add in Wolfe to the pack, you are faced with three characters with very complex personal lives. There are all individually likeable, but as a team they are people with whom I am happy to spend quite a bit of time. And throughout the story, as the pacing ebbs and flows with the action, so too the tension, I really got a sense of the small town environment in which the books are set. In some respects its remoteness and the whole idea of being shrouded by woods, adds to the suspense and the creeping feeling which is never far from the readers mind. I have to say though, that if I lived out there I would probably consider moving as it doesn't seem they have much luck when it comes to serial killers.
A really great book and I look forward to going back to read book one, and to see what is in store next for our three intrepid heroes.
Though an excellent plot, it was so badly written and badly naratted I won't be going further with this Author or narrator she made so many mistakes, forgot her accent and made the men sound like women with a sore throat.
The stupid comments from both the Sheriff and one of her deputys in this book were childish. The constant reference to his blue eyed or blue gaze reminded me of a mills and boon in context all that was needed was his gaze... His large muscular body etc, etc.
I don't buy chick books because they irritates me.
Plus the sheriffs ex Fbi she is aware he her deputy is ex special forces a marine plus a profiler but she not only send him out to do things she tells him how to do it... Nothing like stating the obvious...
Plus she's forgotten the obvious the ME has more powers at a crime scene than she does...
Very angry at a complete waste of money... Give this plot to JD Robb and she would have either written it in 50 pages or wrote it ten times better with a lot more twists and make it worth the money I wasted paying for it...
Highly recommend both these books
