Dark Hearts, by D.K. Hood

Dark Hearts book cover
Armed robberies that end in multiple deaths, an abduction and a later murder. The FBI are called in and Agent Beth Katz is on the case, desperately trying to find clues before the latest abductee is killed…
Dark Hearts is the third book in the Beth Katz series (the first two books are Dark Angel and Shadow Angel).
I have to be honest and say that I LOVE Beth! She is a killer herself but has a vocation protecting the innocent by whatever means possible whilst staying undetected herself. Her skewed and dangerous psychology alongside her police work is just fascinating. The tension of the case versus her own natural instincts create a great plotline. There are also plenty of connections and characters for fans of D.K. Hood’s Kane and Alton series.
The case featured in this book seems quite straight forward at the start as Beth traces leads about robberies. Local police have mishandled the past cases and evidence has been missed. Now she is frantic to preserve any clues and find justice as well as prevent more crimes being committed. Beth has to balance her natural proclivities against her professional persona as well as negotiating revelations about her partner.
The majority of the book is written to show the detectives’ perspective and investigation. There are a few chapters which give us the victims’ and killer’s viewpoint which serves to build the tension and our anticipation as well as our hope that Beth succeeds in wreaking her revenge. The pace of the writing is quite fast and the chapters are mostly short which drives the plot along quickly.
Dark Hearts is a tense and dramatic crime thriller with a fab lead character.

About the book: 
Under a thick canopy of pine trees, Cassidy Wilder frantically searches for a hiding place. Her breath catches in her mouth as she hears heavy footsteps. She says a silent prayer, but she knows he’s closing in on her. She knows it’s too late…
When a robbery at a local store ends with multiple deaths and the abduction of sixteen-year-old schoolgirl Cassidy WilderFBI agent Beth Katz and her partner Dax Styles are called in. Visiting Cassidy’s family home just a couple of blocks away from the quiet little store where she went missing, Beth’s heart breaks as she talks to her grieving parents and promises to find their daughter.
Looking at CCTV footage, Beth is horrified to see how calm the killer is as he shoots everyone in the store before forcing the terrified Cassidy to follow him into his truck. Then Beth uncovers multiple robberies just like this one, where all witnesses are killed and a young girl is taken. All of the victims are taken at night and found dead the following morning, so Beth knows time is running out to save Cassidy.
When Cassidy’s lifeless body is discovered dumped on a busy highway near a patch of forest, Beth is devastated. And as more girls go missing, she fears the murderer is escalating. A breakthrough finally comes when she finds a name written in blood next to one of the bodies. Beth knows she’s close to catching the killer and is determined to stop any more lives from being taken—even if it means serving her own form of justice. Will she be able to resist the urge to take a life herself? Or will she become the killer’s next victim?
