DK Hood: Whisper In The Night

Today I’m delighted to be taking part in the blog tour for Whisper In The Night. My review is written with thanks to Noelle at Bookouture for inviting me on the tour and providing my copy of the book through Netgalley.

Blurb:

She opens her eyes and struggles to make out the dark room around her. One thing she knows instantly – her wrists are bound and she’s tied to a chair, unable to move. As she screams for help, she hears footsteps outside. He’s coming…

 

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.

 

Completely addictive from the very start, if you like Lisa Regan, Karin Slaughter and Rachel Abbott you’ll love Whisper in the Night.

Review:

I can’t believe we have reached Book 6 in this series featuring Sheriff Jenna Alton and Deputy David Kane. Whisper In The Night is just as gripping and chilling as its predecessors and I loved every minute. It’s great to be back with these wonderful characters and I enjoyed, as always, their brilliant relationship. They know each other so well and always play to their strengths. It was also interesting to get to know the team (including Duke!) a little better as the case becomes very personal.

In Black Rock Falls, Hood has found the perfect setting. The isolating but breathtaking landscape makes Whisper In The Night incredibly atmospheric, which really highlights the horror of the crimes that Alton and Kane are investigating.

In Whisper In The Night, Alton and Kane are hunting a very clever but twisted killer. The reader can see this from the chapters written from the killer’s perspective, which I loved as they were so chilling. I had every faith in Alton and Kane and the team to bring the killer to justice, but in doing so, they often put their lives on the line, which makes the novel full of tension.

Whisper In The Night is available from Amazon.
