Cover Reveal – ‘Hell to Pay’ by Rachel Amphlett

I am more than just a little bit excited today.  In fact I am thrilled as I can at last reveal the cover for Rachel Amphlett’s new book, ‘Hell to Pay’, the fourth book in the Detective Kay Hunter series.  I swear the covers just keep getting better and better.

‘Hell to Pay’ is being published on the 16th November 2017 by Saxon Publishing and will be available in paperback, as an eBook and in audiobook.  Here’s what it’s about.

 

Book Blurb

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?

Hell to Pay is a gripping fast paced crime thriller, and the fourth in the Detective Kay Hunter series:

1. SCARED TO DEATH

2. WILL TO LIVE

3. ONE TO WATCH

4. HELL TO PAY

A page-turning whodunit for fans of Peter Robinson, David Baldacci and James Patterson.

 

‘Hell to Pay’ can be pre-ordered from Amazon UK – https://www.amazon.co.uk/Hell-Pay-Detective-Hunter-Thriller/dp/0994547943/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1506969985&sr=1-1&keywords=hell+to+pay+by+rachel+amphlett

Blog Tour – ‘One to Watch’ by Rachel Amphlett

‘One to Watch’, the third book in the Detective Kay Hunter series is out tomorrow the 6th June 2017, published by Saxon Publishing. I am absolutely thrilled to be participating in this blog tour. Read on for my review.

A teenage girl with virtually her whole life in front of her is murdered at a private party in the Kentish countryside, leaving Detective Kay Hunter and her colleagues shocked. The investigation into the murder uncovers a tangled web of dark secrets pointing to a history of greed and corruption within the tight-knit community.

As the list of suspects grows Kay must try and figure out who was responsible for killing the teenager, at the same time as trying to sort out her own issues after making a rather shocking discovery.

I loved the first two books in this series and was over the moon to discover that I wouldn’t have to wait long for the third. I could read Rachel Amphlett’s books all day. I found ‘One to Watch’ to be an extremely gripping read with lots of twists and turns. I was totally intrigued by this storyline and would never have guessed in a million years who the killer was.

As always it was lovely to meet some of the characters from the previous two books. It’s nice seeing how well they work together as a team. There were so many avenues to explore especially in this case. I really don’t like DCI Larch though. There is something about him and I can’t put my finger on it. He seems to have it in for Kay which is a pity as she is a really good detective. I keep hoping that he comes to his senses but I’d be surprised if that happens.

For some reason I thought that there would only be three books in the series, but in fact there is a fourth one coming out. I am dying to find out who is behind the personal vendetta against Kay and am hoping this comes to light very soon.

I’d like to thank Rachel Amphlett for another brilliant read and Emma Mitchell for doing an excellent job of organising this blog tour.

I give this book 5 out of 5.

Blog Tour – ‘Will to Live’ by Rachel Amphlett

Big congratulations to Rachel Amphlett whose new book, ‘Will to Live’, the second Detective Kay Hunter novel is out today.  Read on for my review.

When the driver of a packed commuter train sees a body on the track he is unable to stop in time. It looks like yet another suicide, but it soon becomes evident that there has been foul play and that in fact the victim has been murdered. As the investigation evolves a pattern emerges and more murders are uncovered. Detective Sergeant Kay Hunter realises that the railway’s recent reputation may be the work of a serial killer.

With a backlog of cold cases to investigate and attempts to uncover who is behind a professional vendetta against her, Kay must keep one step ahead of both the killer and her own enemies.

When a second murder takes place within a week of the first, Kay realises that the clock is ticking. The killer needs to be caught as soon as possible before anyone else dies.

I read ‘Scared to Death’ towards the end of last year when it came out and have really been looking forward to ‘Will to Live’. Well, all I can say is WOW! This was one thriller of a read and it was extremely hard to put down. It was so very exciting and fast paced and it had me trying to work out who the killer was.  I felt as if I was trying to solve a jigsaw puzzle. I just love Rachel Amphlett’s style of writing. The short chapters added to the intrigue and left me needing to know more.

It was so nice meeting some of the characters who were in the first book again. I can’t help liking Ian Barnes rather dry sense of humour. I think the team worked really well together in trying to solve this case.  I enjoyed reading about the police procedurals too which the author obviously did a lot of research for. I was also really interested in the continuing storyline with Kay. I have a hunch about who it could be but will have to wait a bit longer I guess to see if my suspicions are correct.

I’d like to thank Rachel Amphlett for a fantastic read and for not making me wait too long between books. I shall now wait with bated breath for the third book.

Crime fans, I really recommend that you check out this series. Whilst ‘Will to Live’ can be read as a standalone I personally think you should read ‘Scared to Death’ first.

I can see this series being on TV at some stage in the future.

I give this book 5 out of 5.
