The book starts out with a bang, a couple is racing against the clock to try and save their teenaged daughter. Melanie has been kidnapped and there is a ransom demand. I could feel the terror of her poor parents, I can’t imagine the despair and helplessness they were feeling, so awful. When things end in the worst possible way, Hunter has a huge mess to wade through and clean up. Can Hunter and her team outsmart this ruthless and cunning killer before he strikes again?
The killer here is quite frightening, he literally scares his victims to death and there were times that I was pretty scared myself! He’s crafty, cocky and sinister and seems to enjoy toying with the police and his victims. The pace here is snappy with short chapters that urge you to keep reading. This is dark and gritty, with surprises that I didn’t see coming. There is also a good mix of business and pleasure as you get glimpses into Kay’s personal life and relationship with her boyfriend Adam. There were some funny scenes between the two that added some warmth and humanity to an otherwise dark story. I’m really looking forward to the next book in this series and can definitely recommend this to crime fiction fans.
Scared To Death is the first book in a brand new crime series introducing us to Detective Kay Hunter.
I have to say this was without a doubt one of those novels that you could easily devour in one sitting. As soon as I started it I knew I was in for a great reading experience, sadly real life got in the way and I ended up having to reluctantly read it over a few days instead. Believe me when you pick it up you will not want to put it back down and it was pure torture having to go about daily life before I could race back to it.
The author ensures she has your attention with a truly gripping start to the story. From that point I was just as intrigued as Kay as to why a kidnapper would go about things the way they had done and I was desperate to know more.
I like Detective Kay Hunter, with so many crime series out there I think it’s getting harder for a new detective to stand out, but I didn’t have to worry here as Kay is a very memorable one and one that I certainly want to read more of.
Scared To Death is a brilliant start to a new crime thriller series. With such a gripping story line this is one that fans of this genre DO NOT want to miss out on.
