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.
**Each Kane and Alton book can be read as part of the series or as a standalone**
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.

Another book in the fabulous Alton and Kane series. This book was more suspenseful to me then the others and still had the wonderful built up tension that the other books have.
The story was a bit harder for me to get into as it deals with teens going missing. I am not saying it wasn’t great because it was but just the subject matter isn’t as much to my liking as the other books in this series.
Jenna Alton is still a person you are so happy to see. She has such a good personality and doesn’t see things in the traditional black and white.
David Kane is the knight in shining armour. He has this personality that makes him always running to the rescue just as the white knights would have. It seems that Jenna is usually the one whom he is trying to protect not just from those who try and destroy the idyllic town of Black Rock Falls but even from herself.
In this book Shane Wolfe really comes more out and shows just what he really could be. He isn’t just the behind the scenes man that he comes off as but instead is the one who is the glue holding things together and can be as ruthless as Kane and just as strong and self sufficient as Alton.
I like seeing and getting to know Wolfes kids as well as they form as integral part for the story and show a more human side of things as well. They make things seem normal when nothing is as it should be in small town USA.
One thing I always detect is there is a lot of sexually charged tension between Kane and Alton. It seems that Kane is fighting himself at each step and Jenna so much baggage that you just don’t know what will happen.
The ending of the book wasn’t as good as it could have been. I was hoping for a lot more from the end game but it was happier and at least it had a full conclusion. With the dark nature of this book I was waiting for Wolfe or Kane to go and exact revenge for what had happened.
All in told still a great book from one of the better series. With each book you see so much growth in each of the characters you just are never sure what you should expect.
