Many thanks to Noelle Holten and publisher Bookouture for my spot on this Blog Tour.
This was my favorite D. K. Hood book. I couldn’t believe how fast paced the entire police investigation was or maybe I enjoyed the book so much that I devoured it in one sitting.
A rape and murder in the college campus followed by another death and another caused the Black Rock Falls Sheriff department to work around the clock to get to the murderer. Sheriff Jenna and Deputy Kane and Medical Examiner Wolfe were back.
Having read all the books in this series, this is book 7, I am a fan of author D. K. Hood. The team worked like an engine with all its gears sliding smoothly, nary a friction seen. Sheriff Jenna was a great boss, she led her colleagues with a firm yet friendly hand. This time the stakes were high as they had to send one of them undercover into the campus to get to the killer.
This book had that extra something, it felt that the author had raised the prose a notch as the entire setting caused a slow burn in my veins. I could feel the adrenaline seeping into my blood as I kept reading. By the time I was nearing the end, I was a bundle of nerves, I could no longer sit on the edge of my seat. I had to walk, my vengeant heart screaming blue murder.
And author D. K. Hood gave me the justice that I so vocally demanded from my kindle. Wow!! She nailed it!!
My breakfast read was quite a rollercoaster, I was drained by the end of it. But all I could say was – More please!!
I received a free ARC from NetGalley and publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

Her head throbbed as she stumbles up the stairs. Music vibrating and the sound of partygoers fill her head as she walks into one of the dark, empty rooms. As she sits on the bed, she hears the unmistakable sound of the door locking behind her. She is not alone.
The body of college student Chrissie Lowe lies curled into a ball – long red cuts along her arms suggesting how she had met her death. Detective Jenna Alton is called in to investigate.
Purplish bruising on Chrissie’s upper arms make Jenna believe there is more to Chrissie’s death than others suspected, and she soon finds herself following the trail of the student’s last few moments, leading her to the scene of a party that had ended just hours before Chrissie’s body was found.
When Jenna hears reports that Chrissie was seen going into the bedroom of a college football star, she knows that finding out what went on behind that closed door could be the key to finding out how Chrissie ended up dead. But then another partygoer dies in an apparent accident at the campus gym just hours later, and Jenna is convinced the deaths are connected.
Facing a wall of silence from the student population, Jenna has to act fast to find the killer, but soon another student is found dead on the campus. As Jenna sends in one of her deputies undercover, she prays that she hasn’t just sealed his fate. Can she find the killer before any more lives are taken?
