Oohhh what a fantastic beginning to a new series! I love nothing more than getting caught up in a new series and I’m so excited about this one featuring detective Kay Hunter. She’s intelligent, capable and tough, but she has enough skeletons in her closet to keep things interesting. She also has a keen intuition which makes her a sharp and formidable detective.

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.

This is the first novel I have read by this author and will certainly be reading more after reading this one!

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.

A superb story with excellent knowledge of police procedure. Once started I found it hard to put down even for the call of nature, but quickly renewed my reading. The beginning got one's interest immediately and the following scenes and actions were explained well. One had a suspicion of the final outcome but twists in the plot meant doubting such ideas until the end. Can't wait for the next novel in the series which I am told should be published shortly.

Detective Kay Hunter is a dedicated detective with a complex past. Scared to Death is a good read with enough twists and turns to keep you guessing. I think Kay Hunter is here to stay and I look forward to getting to know her and her story.

Another great read from Rachel Amphlett. I absolutely love the Dan Taylor series and was slightly apprehensive if Kay Hunter would appeal to me. I was not disappointed. As ever, this was a real page turner that grips the reader from start to end. Looking forward to reading more in this series.

I have read many 'who submits' and like to be surprised. Well quite a few surprises are revealed in this story and although I hate cliches it is a great 'page turner' and now for the next book from this talented author.
