The floor was stone cold on her bare skin. Her heart pounded in her chest. ‘Not a soul knows where I am,’ she thought as she took in the darkness around her. And then she heard his footsteps…

When a body is found stuffed into a barrel at a garbage dump, covered in long red cuts, Detective Jenna Alton and her new deputy, David Kane, rush to the scene.

Nothing ever happens in the small American town of Black Rock Falls, so Jenna believes the victim must be one of two recent missing persons, and she fears for the life of the other.

Both were strangers to the town, but there’s nothing else to link them. Jenna knows someone must have seen something, but no one’s talking; how well does she really know the people around her?

Then a disturbing clue makes Jenna suspect a connection with other disappearances in the town’s history. Just when she begins asking the right questions, she realises she’s being followed. Is she next on the killer’s list?

In a race against time, Jenna and David must unlock the dark secret at the heart of the town, before it’s too late… 

A completely addictive detective thriller that will have you guessing right to the end. Perfect for readers of Robert Dugoni, Karin Slaughter and Rachel Abbott.

My Review

This is one of the best books I have read this year.   The dynamics of the sheriff and deputies is very different then what one woukd expect.

Jenna Alton is the sheriff of this small town where nothing ever happens or so you are made to believe.  That’s not the case and Jenna is run off the road.  Her new Deputy David Kane is on his way into town and his very first thing he sees is a lady in distress.

The two meet with fireworks flaring up from the start.  It is fast paced and you really get to see just what these characters are all about.

Seeing this novel is part one of a series of novels based in small town USA it seems plausible that there is more than meets the eye in this small town.

The author definitely has managed to get the close knit relationships of small town anywhere down to a science.  It was sadness when this book ended as the story was amazing and had everything that I ask for in a book.

This action packed book was simply one of the best books I have had the privaledge to read this year. 

Definitely 6 stars out of 5 from me.
