Book Review – Where Angels Fear by D. K. Hood @Bookouture #BlogTour #BookBlogger #AmReading

Woohoo!! My first blog tour with Bookouture and I am super excited. Many thanks to Noelle and Bookouture for this fabulous invitation to this exciting edition of Kane and Alton series – Where Angels Fear by author D. K. Hood

What can I say about author D. K. Hood that everyone in the reading world does not already know – she is brilliant!!

She has done it again!! This time the author has taken a theme so close to my heart, twisted it in her nebulous dark style, making it one where medicine and murder go hand in glove – pun intended!!

Black Rock Falls now has a dark underbelly, where murders and kidnapping seem happening almost continually, enough to keep Sheriff Jenna Alton and Dave Kane on their toes. In Book 5, Jenna down with flu and Kane still recovering from the surgery are embroiled in a case where 2 best friends driving down a dark highway with zero mobile network, stop to help a man with a broken down truck. (Aah!!! Where goes the common sense?!!!) And you know how it goes, one of the friends is kidnapped and the other manages to escape. Jenna and Kane along with Rowley and Wolfe get to what they do best – investigating… But this time with a backdrop of roaring blizzards and heavy snow. Other young adults soon disappear, and it becomes a race against time for Jenna and Kane to save them!!

D. K. Hood has a clever mind which can see a plot even in the most innocuous of things and come out with a story that is not only exciting and rocking but it was jaw-dropping!! Whoa!! I really couldn’t believe it even when I read it! Wow! I loved the way she coasted the fine line without becoming too graphic, yet giving us a glimpse of the psychotic soul. The threat in the scene kept the atmosphere tense. All the characters made the book a tight-knit weave in which the bad guys had to be captured, at a great personal cost.

My niggles were minimal, at certain places the plot felt disjointed, and I kept threatening the main character, Jenna, to work fast otherwise I would start reading from the end!!

A rocking book and I did try to look at everyone with a suspicious eye, but alas, my guess was wrong. I was influenced by the previous book. Fab read!!

Oh D. K. Hood, what goes in thy mind, I wonder, but keep it coming!! I love it!!

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.

D.K. Hood is an active member of International Thriller Writers.




When Ella Tate stumbles into Black Rock Falls, her exhausted and bloodied body is a terrifying sight, but not as frightening as the story she has to tell. Ambushed on their way into town when they stopped to help a man by the side of the road, Ella and her friend Sky ran when he pulled a knife on them. But only one of them got away.

As Detective Jenna Alton investigates the case, she looks into the history of missing persons in the town, and uncovers more cases – all young people. All stopped on the same stretch of road into town. All vanished without a trace.

  1. Great review Shalini. A blizzard always makes mysteries and thrillers even better. So glad you are enjoying this series. I wish I had started this one back when the first one came out.
