A Song For The Dead, by D.K. Hood

A Song For The Dead book cover
A young woman is missing and, judging by the amount of blood, probably murdered. Meanwhile Kane and Alton have found a gravesite with a series of bodies buried in triangles. The police fear that another two women may disappear soon…
A Song For The Dead is the 21st book in the Kane and Alton series of detective thrillers. It works as a stand alone book but there are personal plotlines which follow on from previous books, in particular Jenna and Dave’s family life.
Jenna and Dave find a link between a set of bodies and a current missing person case. They believe that there is a killer who kills 3 women every Halloween. The seasonal setting adds the backdrop to the plot and adds a spooky atmosphere and tension.
Most of the book is written from the third person perspective to show the police investigation and the victims being unaware of the danger they face. Some chapters are written to show the killer’s viewpoint and this is chilling as we witness their determination to harm others.
The murders are graphically and vividly described from the victim and murderer’s perspectives. I found this very unpleasant and this is mirrored in Jenna’s difficulty with dealing with this case. The phone recordings of the murders was especially harrowing.
Jenna’s maternal instincts have really kicked in now and this adds a different dimension to the book as she now has to keep her child safe and stay safe for him. I did feel that these elements slowed down the plot a little compared to earlier books.
A Song For The Dead is an intense crime thriller.

About the book: 
As she steps out of the shower and wraps herself in a warm towel, her breath catches. There’s writing scrawled in the condensation on the mirror. I’m going to kill you. She doesn’t even have time to scream…
It’s Halloween when a young woman is reported missing from the small town of Black Rock Falls and Sheriff Jenna Alton and her partner, Deputy David Kane, race to her remote home. But all they find are signs of a struggle and blood on the bathroom floor. Freya Richardson has vanished.
With no leads on Freya’s whereabouts, Jenna hits a wall in the investigation. Then the bodies of three women are discovered buried in a local forest. Each one has been wrapped in a blanket. As Jenna takes in their pretty faces and long blonde hair, her blood runs cold. Freya isn’t here: but each body looks shockingly like her…
Jenna soon links the victims with an unsolved case where the killer attacked blonde-haired women in their homes and buried the bodies. She’s convinced it’s the same murderer, and seeing that he always takes three victims, she realizes that two more women could be in serious danger…
Working around the clock, Jenna’s heart sinks when a beloved friend makes a terrifying call telling her there’s an intruder in her house. Begging her to hide, Jenna and Dave race to the woman’s house. But can they get there in time to stop another innocent life from being taken?
Truly gripping and absolutely unputdownable, fans of Lisa Regan, Melinda Leigh and Kendra Elliot will love this novel from USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author D.K. Hood.
**Each Kane and Alton book can be read as part of the series or as a standalone**
