When a road traffic accident on a dark autumn night uncovers a disturbing conspiracy, Detective Sergeant Kay Hunter’s investigation exposes a ruthless serial killer exploiting vulnerable young women.
With her enemies unmasked and her career spiralling out of control, Kay’s determination to seek vengeance for the victims brings her dangerously close to those who want to silence her.
Undeterred, she uncovers the real reason behind a plot to destroy her career and sets in motion a terrifying chain of events.
Could Kay’s need for revenge be her undoing, or will she survive to see justice served?
I’m SO excited to be a stop on the blog tour for Hell to Pay today!
I’ve become a huge fan of this series over the past year, I loved Scared to Death, Will to Live and One to Watch and have been anxiously awaiting book four. That’s the thing with this series, each book may resolve a case but they always leave you wanting more! It’s also one of those series where the books get better with each installment and they all come highly recommended by me.
One of the things that sets these books apart from its counterparts is that Amphlett always manages to come up with a fresh premise for each book. This time, Kay and team are called to assist with a car accident, which seems odd to them until they realize that there was a dead woman in the trunk of the car. (See, unique!) There is the perfect balance between Kay’s work life and her personal life, per usual you receive some answers to long awaited questions but you wind up with additional questions as well. As much as this frustrates me it does so in the best possible way and just makes me all the more eager to get my hands on the next book.
Hell to Pay was another exciting read that gets your adrenaline going, the pacing is fast and furious and begins on page one and never ends. The chapters are short and flow together beautifully and before you know it you’re halfway through with no plans to stop until you’re done. Amphlett has most assuredly found her stride with this series and fans of dark, gritty police procedurals will love Kay, her team and the amazing writing.
Thanks to Emma Mitchell and the author for my review copy.
