Synopsis

Meet the brilliant, whip-smart Jenna Alton, Black Rock Falls’ newest resident. She’s fighting her own demons, but she’ll stop at nothing to put those who hurt the innocent behind bars. An addictive short-read about how she went from an undercover police officer to the town’s most loved Sheriff.

He grabs at her hair, pulling hard. She doesn’t scream like he wants her to. She grits her teeth and waits for him to let go. Then she runs harder than she has ever run in her life. The sound of his footsteps behind her, and the certainty of what he will do if he catches her, is all she needs to keep going.

Undercover officer Jenna Alton has been with her criminal husband Michael Carlos for four years. Tonight, she brings him down. She sits in her car as the motorised gates slowly open, exposing the imposing mansion behind them. She taps on the steering wheel, faking impatience, taking in every detail of her surroundings: how many guards are on the door, who’s in the house, the exact location of the little girl she is here to save.

But as she tries to act normal, pulling the shopping from the trunk, something catches her eye… Her husband stands in the window of their large bedroom watching her every move.

She can tell by his stance that he’s suspicious. But Jenna has a job to do.

Tonight, as Michael welcomes his closest associates to their secluded home, Jenna will find the kidnapped girl and escape. If Michael has discovered her plans, she’s dead. She takes a deep breath and climbs the stairs…

An absolutely unputdownable short crime thriller from USA Today bestselling author D.K. Hood. If you’re a fan of Lisa Regan, Melinda Leigh and Kendra Elliot, you will love this gripping read.
