Scared to Death is a gripping fast paced crime thriller from author Rachel Amphlett in a new series introducing Kay Hunter – a detective with a hidden past and an uncertain future…
“If you want to see your daughter alive again, listen carefully”
When the body of a snatched schoolgirl is found in an abandoned biosciences building, the case is first treated as a kidnapping gone wrong.
But Detective Kay Hunter isn’t convinced, especially when a man is found dead with the ransom money still in his possession.
When a second schoolgirl is taken, Kay’s worst fears are realised.
With her career in jeopardy and desperate to conceal a disturbing secret, Kay’s hunt for the killer becomes a race against time before he claims another life.
For the killer, the game has only just begun…
First in the Detective Kay Hunter Series. This is not an easy read after all there are young women being kidnapping and people being murdered. It is a, however, a story that you can get wrapped up in.
A detective who has a history but is no victim and is a likeable lead character, well drawn by Rachel Amphlett.
The story is a well paced, thriller with twists and which, for those who like to try and work things out, will keep those ‘little grey cells’ busy!
Scared to Death is a well written, tense, compelling and engaging read. A really good first book and a series that, no doubt, will become a favourite.
