Many thanks to Noelle Holten and publisher Bookouture for my spot on this Blog Tour.
D. K. Hood’s books have the best police procedural in them, one of my auto-downloads. Jenna and Kane combination gets me every time; I am always excited when I start to read their story. And now with hints of cuddles between them, I love these books all the more.
This story too had a killer kidnapping young girls and killing them. But the difference was that he sent a video and gave Jenna a time frame to find him.. Tick Tock… Tick Tock… the time sped and Jenna was late…. Till the serial killer set his sights on Jenna herself.
Having read all of author D. K. Hood’s books, I found her writing fluid. Race against time was the beat these cops worked on. Always on the back foot and one step behind, their determination were fathoms ahead of the killer. Nothing and nobody could stop Jenna from finding him, not even 2 bullet wounds at the back.
The team, as always, was extremely cohesive. Even with a troubled mind, Jenna gave the perfect orders, she knew how to lead her men. The one thing which caught my eye was these cops, especially Jenna, felt extreme fear, one which crippled their brains and shook the soul out of their bodies, but they always faced it bravely, taking one on their chin. D. K Hood’s writing showed its brilliance when I got to see Jenna’s core of steel, the way she straightened her spine, in spite of mind-numbing fear. Always inspiring.
The story reached its shocking end with the identity of the killer. And no, I didn’t guess it. The two halves of my brain kept warring, one wanted to play detective, other just read. A great police procedural by a talented author.
I received an ARC from NetGalley and publisher Bookouture, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

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.

Fifteen-year-old Lindy Rosen has been having nightmares for weeks, waking in a panic, screaming that there’s a man in her room watching her sleep. Her parents assumed it was her overactive imagination, but when one morning they find Lindy missing from her bedroom, they’re not so sure. Detective Jenna Alton is called in to investigate.
Within hours of the schoolgirl going missing, the kidnapper reaches out to Jenna with a video of Lindy bound and tied to a chair, crying to be set free. And a simple message – you’ve got 24 hours to find her or I kill her.
Jenna’s team work around the clock to try to find Lindy before the deadline, but time runs out, and Jenna receives a devastating message. The killer has made good on his promise. He’s playing a dangerous game. And no one knows what his next move will be.
But just two days later, one of Lindy’s school friends is taken in the middle of the night and the countdown begins again.
