Bring Me Flowers by DK Hood (Kane and Alton #2)

"The dead can't hurt you. Swallow your fear and find justice."

Sheriff Jenna Alton has a series of vicious murders on her plate. Teenage girls, eviscerated and displayed in a gruesome tableau taunting her team in Black Rock Falls. With so many possible suspects and a rodeo circuit in town, she, David Kane and new deputy, Shane Wolfe, have their hands full as terror engulfs the small town.

This was an incredibly fast-paced, high octane thriller that begs to be read in one sitting -- as I accomplished today (despite the hated battery dying on my kindle -- thank heavens for a power pack!) There are so many red herrings and so much going on that the reader is glued to the pages trying to guess the identity of the killer. It doesn't help that these are teenaged girls who don't listen to their parents, who take incredibly stupid risks, and who think they are invincible! I cringed more than once knowing what was about to happen to those feckless girls. Yes you have to use a bit of suspension of disbelief that so much could happen in this backwater town where Jenna is sent in the Witness Protection Program (see book one), but the storytelling captures you and it's fun to go along for the ride. Lots of gruesome and grisly description of the kills, but once again, detective work saves the day!

I like this new series and the second one just whets my appetite for more of Kane and Alton and I hope it's not too long a wait for #3. I like the small town atomosphere and the detail in the narrative and as I said, it was impossible to put down.

Thank you to NetGalley and Bookouture for this e-book ARC to read and review. Can't wait for the next!
