She didn’t know he was watching. Until it was too late.
She’d walked this path hundreds of times before, she knew every twist and turn. But today was different. She didn’t know someone was waiting for her, hidden away from view. She didn’t know this was the last time she’d walk this path.
Hidden deep in the forest, schoolgirl Felicity Parker is found carefully laid out on a rock with nothing but a freshly picked bunch of flowers next to her lifeless form. Detective Jenna Alton is called in to investigate the gruesome discovery.
With the body found just off a popular hiking route, Jenna believes the killer is a visitor to the town… until a second local girl is discovered.
Within days, Kate Bright, a school friend of Felicity’s, is found brutally murdered at the local swimming pool and once again, the killer has displayed his victim in a terrifying manner and left flowers at the scene.
The town is gripped with fear and Jenna and her deputy, David Kane, now know that the killer is living amongst them, and that he’s picking off school girls one by one. But they don’t know who is next on the list.
As the trail goes cold, Kane and Alton are forced to sit and wait for the killer to make his next move. But now he has a new victim in his sights, and he’s looking much closer to home …
If you love Robert Dugoni, Karin Slaughter and Rachel Abbott you’ll love this nail-biting thriller from D.K. Hood.
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.

Let me start by saying that this is book 2 in a series, I highly recommnd you reading book 1 to gain all the details and back story for Detective Alton and Kane. If you read it as a stand alone I fell that you will miss so much that this series has to offer.
If you’re a thriller fan, much like me, then you know there’s going to be a body count and D.K. doesn’t hold back! Her attention to scene setting and details is beyond amazing, not once did I strggle in seeing what she wanted me to see and at times those scenes are graphic! What should be a fairly sleepy little town is suddenly thrown into the depths of a serial killer that is brutal, savage and on the hunt……in my sick little mind this is what had me hooked. I enjoyed seeing what drove him to taking these girls and doing what he does to them, and why he felt just in doing so.
In the first book Alton and Kane have a very frosty start, which given the circumstances is understandable, but I love how their relationship has progressed in the series, they push each other boundaries and aren’t afraid to say what they really mean. They gel well as characters and some of their interactions together did put a little smile on my face (I have high hopes for these two)
This book is action packed from the start, there’s a fair few garden paths we are led down and plenty of twist and turns as the story progresses, I did gasps at a few pieces of info and had me rethinking my ‘whodunit’ theory…. Well played D.K.
A truly enjoyble read that has made the author a must read for me, i look forward to seeing where she takes Alton, Kane and the not so sleepy town of Black Rock Falls. I’m expecting more drama, secrets and bodies coming from book 3.
A well deserved 5 golden apples from me, might need to be adding more apples is this series gets any better!!
I’d like to thank Bookouture and Netgalley for my advanced copy of Bring Me Flowers. Noelle for all her hard work in arranging this tour and to D.K. for a gripping read that takes my mind to those little dark places.
