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…
I first read this back in 2016 and I jumped at the chance when I was offered a chance to listen to it on audio. I listen to them more than I have ever done. The narrator has done a brilliant job of bringing this story and characters to life with all the different characters. I have to admit that the audio is just as good has the reading it. I loved it.
In this story we are introduced to a new detective Kay Hunter who has a hidden past and an uncertain future. We follow Kay on a totally gripping hunt for a serial killer. The story starts off with a bang where a couple are in search for their daughter who has been kidnapped. Every parents worse nightmare. Kay is called out to an abandoned biosciences building where a body of a school girl is found. The case is first treated as a kidnapping gone wrong. Until a man is found dead with ransom money still in his possession. But then a second schoolgirl is found and Kay’s worst fears are realised. Then the hunt for the killer soon becomes a race against time before he claims another life.
Scared to death is a cracking audio where I could escape reality and listen to the story unfold. I was hooked from the start to finish and found myself listening to it any chance that I had.
The authors style of writing, it is fresh and crisp. I loved how the characters build up, are woven into a tense and gripping story line. This a brilliant start to a fab new series and I will definitely to Listen to more of the Kay Hunter series on audio
