This is a fantastic series which I’ve enjoyed so much and I can hardly believe that this is book nine – and yet, I feel as if I know Kay Hunter and her team so well!
When the body of a man is discovered on farmland purely by chance it causes fear throughout the local rural community; Kay and her team need to get to grips with this one – and quickly. This is no ordinary murder and when it transpires than someone is around offering cash for information, it becomes more urgent to get on top of it all. With every officer and the associated agencies working flat out, can further deaths be avoided?
Rachel Amphlett has been a favourite author for quite some time and I just couldn’t pass up the chance of joining the blog tour for her latest Kay Hunter novel, despite the fact that I’m on my annual break. Some authors are just too good to miss! I feel as if Kay is a friend now and the details of her life with husband Adam provide some much needed light relief in amongst the gory details of her investigations. As always, the answer to solving the case is many hours of plodding through the evidence and leaving no stone unturned and it’s Kay’s job to look after the morale of her team whilst driving things forward. This is, once again, a stimulating and spellbinding read which kept me on my toes from beginning to end in a series which goes from strength to strength while the author keeps it fresh and lively. Absolutely a five star read and a hearty recommendation from me.
My thanks to the publisher for my copy and to Book On The Bright Side for my spot on this tour; this is – as always – my honest, original and unbiased review.
