This was an excellent introduction to a new series, and straightaway you buy into Beth and what she is doing, even if it isn’t by the book! This book moves along at pace and you just do not want to put it down. I can’t wait for the opportunity to continue with this series.

This was my first book by this author but based on the excellent plotting, characters and the storyline it certainly won’t be my last. You shouldn’t like what Beth is doing but she quickly has you on side and you are supporting her all the way. I also felt the narration in this one was very strong, with a good narrator and for me this only added to the book.

I am happy to recommend this book to others, especially if they enjoy high quality crime fiction.

I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.

Dark Angel by D.K. Hood
Detective Beth Katz #1

Definitely fiction and not terribly believable at times but an interesting look at a, to me, rather big “what if”. What if a psychopathic serial killer with the motive of eradicating evil serial killers became an FBI agent and used access to files to track her evil prey down.

What I liked:
* The plot, pacing, setting, and potential of the story
* Meeting many of the characters that will no doubt show up throughout the series
* The introduction to Beth and her new partner Dax and their get acquainted dance as they begin to work together
* Bear: Belgian Malinois, K-9, rescued by and partners with Dax, highly trained
* The police procedural aspects of the story
* The potential suspects that were offered that might be the killers
* That the Pied Piper serial killer was eventually arrested
* Wanting to know more about the supporting characters
* Wondering how the series will be developed and move forward

What I didn’t like:
* Who and what I was meant not to like
* Wondering how Beth, if really a psychopathic serial killer, would be hired by the FBI and then wondering if perhaps she is NOT then what is she really

Did I like this book? Yes, mostly
Would I read more in this series? I think so, though I did miss book two in the series so maybe not

Thank you to NetGalley and Bookouture for the ARC – This is my honest review.

3-4 Stars

I still hate getting into the mind of a serial murderer who does it for his reprehensible reasons. But getting into the mind of FBI special agent Beth Katz who is a hereditary serial killer whose prey are the monster is more than OK with me. The FBI is unaware of this aspect of her life but had sent her off to the wilds of Montana to work with Agent Dax Styles who is an unrepentant loner who always gets the job done. This time the monster is targeting young women employed as pole dancers. He not only has an agenda, but he has rituals about the death and beyond. Beth takes matters into her own hands and...
I'll be waiting for the audio!
I requested and received an EARC from Bookouture from NetGalley. Thank you.

Special Agent Beth Katz is exceptional. She is also a serial killer intensely focused on the monsters who prey on children. The FBI is unaware of this aspect of her life but send her off to the wilds of Montana to work with Agent Dax Styles who is an unrepentant loner who always gets the job done. Except for this one particular serial killer who has been around a very long time and has moved into Montana.
Voice actor Lauryn Allman is an interesting choice as narrator whose best talent is ratcheting up the tension.
I requested and received a free temporary audiobook from Bookouture Audio from NetGalley. Thank you.
