Dark Angel, by D.K. Hood

Dark Angel book cover
TRIGGER WARNING: child rape and murder, drug abuse, sexual slavery
Agent Beth Katz is dedicated to her FBI career, determined to help and protect others. Her methods are unorthodox as she uses her skills to kill the perpetrators where possible. She is the daughter of a serial killer and has inherited the intelligence and danger which allows her to avenge victims. Now she is on the trail of a killer but can she hide her real self from her new partner…?
Dark Angel is the first book in a new series. The second book Shadow Angel is also available now. I have previously read, enjoyed and reviewed many of D.K. Hood’s Kane and Alton series (use the search box to find them!)
Wow, I love Beth’s character. She is scary, but only if you are a killer yourself. She is fearless in her ruthless disposal of the monsters that stalk the innocent. Her deadly skills are only used against those who deserve it. After a particularly traumatic incident, Beth has been sent to a new location and given a new partner and crimes to solve.
I did have to suspend my credulity a few times as Beth and Dax get into some dangerous situations and barely escape with their lives. Some of the content is quite graphic especially with regard to the paedophile ring, however I also felt that there was a detachment when older victims are discovered.
Most of the book is written to show Beth and Dax’s perspective but we do have some chapters that show the killer (dubbed the Pied Piper by the FBI but the Warlock to him and his victims). I felt that I wanted more chapters about the killer to better understand and witness his actions.
Dark Angel isn’t particularly fast paced as it seeks to introduce us to Beth but there are some action packed moments in this tense crime thriller. A great start to a new series!

Dark Angel: A gripping and unputdownable FBI agent thriller (Detective Beth Katz Book 1)
In the dark pine forest surrounding the quiet town of Rattlesnake Creek, the body of a young girl lies on the ground. Her angelic blonde hair spills over her shoulders and her unblinking eyes stare up toward the sky…
It was Beth Katz’s serial killer father who made her like she is: a successful FBI agent and an unstoppable vigilante dedicated to hunting down murderers who have evaded capture. Beth will push herself to the limits to deliver justice. Even if it means killing those who deserve to die.
When the body of missing schoolgirl Brooklyn Daniels is discovered in a secluded patch of woodland on the outskirts of town, Beth and her partner Dax Styles race to the scene. Brooklyn and her best friend left home to pick wildflowers a week ago and vanished without trace.
Taking in Brooklyn’s body carefully laid on a blanket and the dress neatly folded next to her, Beth suddenly freezes. She’s seen this before: in the files of a cold case. The perpetrator takes two girls—one vanishes, the other is killed and left with her clothes beside her. Now Beth knows she has a twisted serial killer on her hands, she’ll stop at nothing to catch him. Even if it means going against Dax’s orders…
Desperate to find the other missing girl, Beth’s heart pounds as she puts herself up as bait and walks into the secluded forest, knowing evil is lurking nearby. With Dax watching her every move, Beth prays the gamble pays off. Can she outsmart the murderer, or did she just walk into a trap? And when Beth finally comes face to face with the killer, will she hand him over or serve justice of her very own?

Shadow Angel: An absolutely addictive and nail-biting crime thriller (Detective Beth Katz Book 2):
In a dark cabin, a young woman sits totally still. Long dark hair hangs over her shoulders and heavy makeup adorns her pale face. Cherry red lips offer a hint of a smile, but she won’t ever smile again. Her body is already cold to the touch…
When black crows are spotted circling over an abandoned cabin in the woods near Rattlesnake Creek, FBI agent Beth Katz and her maverick partner Dax Styles fear something is very wrong. Beth has been hunting serial killers for years, and as she races to the forest she vows to serve her own form of justice, whatever the cost…
Cassie Durham’s friends reported her missing when she didn’t return home from a local bar a few days ago. Now, Cassie sits in darkness, her last breath taken days before. Beth notices the rouged cheeks and bright blue eyeshadow are nothing like the pictures she’s seen of Cassie alive. Did someone add the heavy makeup and pose her like this after death?
When another woman vanishes from a night out, Beth is convinced a twisted killer is in town. A clue on the dark web leads her to a local late-night hangout. Going undercover, she learns that when both girls vanished they were being watched by someone at the back of the crowded room.
Noticing a man following her every move, Beth knows she has one chance to capture him. With a knife in her pocket and hellbent on saving another innocent life, Beth is already sure she’s going to be the killer tonight. Otherwise she will become his next victim…
