Publisher's summary

The young girl pushes against the backseat of the family sedan, fighting to free herself from the crude ties restricting her hands and feet. As the car speeds towards the edge of town, she looks back at her family home and watches in horror as it is suddenly engulfed in a mass of flames. Trembling with fear, she turns toward the driver and hears only laughter. She knows that the worst is yet to come....

Detective Jenna Alton surveys the charred remains of the large suburban home, stopping to pause at the three lifeless bodies of the Woods family. Jenna knows she’s looking for a serial killer, but her priority is finding the missing teenage daughter last seen on the night of the inferno.

Days later, Sophie Woods’s body is discovered floating in a shallow pool of crystal-clear water - known locally as Dead Man’s Drop - but Jenna still doesn’t know who would target the quiet family in such a brutal attack.

Delving into the family’s past, she makes a shocking discovery - a link between the killer and someone connected to her deputy David Kane. If Jenna is right and the killer is back and seeking revenge, then she must act fast to keep her deputy safe.

When another girl is taken, Jenna and David follow the trail into a network of underground caves on the outskirts of town. With little time before the killer claims his next victim, they race into the pitch-black tunnels, unsure whether they have just walked into the killer’s trap. Can they find the girl in time and escape the caves without the killer chasing them down?

Each Kane and Alton book can be listened to as part of the series or as a stand-alone.

Love the story but NOT the narrator.

The story kept me on edge of my seat but it was really hard listening to the narrator. She’s terrible!!

Worth the read!!!

Unlike earlier books in the series that portrays Sheriff Jenna Alton as a bit of a wimp, this one actually shows Jenna being more forceful. A bomber who is out for revenge has the bodies piling up. The bomb signature is the same as the bomber who killed Kane’s wife and left him for dead...suddenly it appears Kane was not the intended target of that attack...and this case has become very personal. This book is certainly action packed and keeps the adrenaline flowing. I’m looking forward to the next book to see if the chemistry between Jenna and Dave heats up.

Exceptional Growth in Story and Authorial Ability

I started out mildy enjoying the Kane and Alton series, but as I continued reading the series, my enjoyment of the stories grew as well as my affection for the characters.

This could be an excellent stand-alone story, but if you are considering it, why not start at the beginning? It will be worth it.

Another winner!

Awesome read. Love the evolution of characters. Each book in the series builds and yet stands alone. Awesome Audible narration as well.
