Wow, this series just gets better and better, if that’s at all possible! I’ve found myself totally gripped with Hell To Pay, grabbing every chance I’ve had to read it, even if it’s only been a couple of chapters at a time. I have to say though, telling myself ‘just one more chapter’ happened quite regularly whilst reading this book so I’ve read it quite quickly (for me!). I love Rachel Amphlett’s writing style. Her books are so easy to immerse yourself in. If you haven’t read this series as yet, then I highly recommend that you do.
In Hell To Pay Detective Kay Hunter and her team are called to a road traffic accident. They aren’t quite sure why at first until they realise there is a dead body in the boot of the car. The body of a young woman. What they eventually unearth as they investigate this unusual case is nothing short of horrific! Kay’s determination to see this particularly nasty criminal brought to justice puts her in serious danger as he becomes as obsessed with her as she is with him. A storyline which had me holding my breath and my heart racing!
Absolutely brilliantly written. I loved it! It’s fast-paced, with short chapter’s which add to the tension and pace of the story making you NEED to read on. Characterisation is excellent. I feel like I’m getting to know the main character’s quite well now and it almost feels like catching up with old friends when I start the next book in the series. They are real and believable and I find myself really caring about what happens to them. I’ve already started book five – Call To Arms.
Many thanks to Rachel Amphlett for my review copy of Hell To Pay. I highly recommend!
