Her Shallow Grave (Detectives Kane and Alton #9)

HER SHALLOW GRAVE                                D.K. HOOD

She runs her trembling fingers over the dark, damp walls surrounding her. Above her head, she hears heavy footsteps. She knows she has nowhere to hide and as the door to the cellar is flung open, she finally sees his face.

It’s winter in Black Rock Falls and, as tourists flock to the small town to take in the snowy mountain peaks, one visitor makes a sickening discovery. The frozen body of a young woman hangs from a tree on the outskirts of town. Detective Jenna Alton is called in to investigate.

Jenna’s stomach turns as she surveys the ice-cold remains, and she’s soon alerted to similar burial sites nearby. With no missing persons reported, Jenna and her deputy, David Kane, fear Black Rock Falls is being used as a dumping ground for bodies.

As the body count mounts up, Jenna is more determined than ever to find the person responsible. But as she tries to catch the killer out, he outsmarts her once again and Jenna begins to wonder if he knows her next move. Could he be closer to her than she thinks?

When the investigation takes Jenna to a homeless shelter right in the heart of the community, she fears for the life of a woman who hasn’t been seen for a few days. It’s clear the killer is beginning to escalate, so Jenna ramps up the investigation and puts herself in unthinkable danger. Can she catch the murderer off guard, or does he already know she’s on her way? Has Jenna finally met a killer she can’t catch?


You are back in Black Rock and there is another serial killer, you are taken first through the mind of the woman trying to get away, then to the man that is killing. While that is happening Jenna, and Kane who were taking time skiing come across a woman in need and you get to see Kane in full action. Afterward what is left adds another part to the story and to their ongoing relationship.
You of course have Wolfe and his daughter and also the deputy and other people that were in the other books. Here though you are taken through the eyes of the victims and when they are taken and through their ordeal being held captive which adds to the story. Add in the weather with it being winter and the snow not letting which adds to their frustration in finding any clues, but helping the person doing the crimes. This is just another good book in the series. I received this book from Netgalley.com I gave it 5 stars. Follow us at www.1rad-readerreviews.com
