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?
When Kay Hunter gets a call in the middle of the night to attend a traffic accident, she has no idea of what lies ahead. Not only does she find something in the boot of the car that really shouldn’t be there, it will also lead to an investigation that will ultimately force her to face one of her biggest nightmares.
If you’ve been following the Kay Hunter series, then you know Kay has been struggling professionally as well as personally due to someone trying to destroy her career. In Hell To Pay, the pieces of the puzzle will be falling into place but will Kay’s desire for revenge put her in danger?
This series is one of those that just keeps getting better with each instalment. The tension and the pace are quite high as the team race against the clock to catch the ultimate prize before they disappear again. But the man they’re chasing has plans of his own, none of which sound good and he always seems to be one step ahead.
I’ve always loved how Rachel Amphlett is able to effortlessly combine Kay’s personal life with her career in the police force and having these two aspects collide was quite the thrilling ride. If I want to be slightly nitpicky, I could say that maybe something was a wee bit predictable but in the grand scheme of things, I really didn’t care. Ultimately, some questions are answered but there are new ones to deal with now, which is a great way to keep a reader wanting more.
I’m not sure if could possibly be any more vague. But I’m trying really hard not to give anything away here. You just have to read it and see for yourself what’s going on. This is a quick read, one of those “I’ll just read one more chapter” books and before you know it, your afternoon is gone and you’re late starting dinner. Oops.
I can’t believe this is already book four in the series and it doesn’t look like the author or Kay, for that matter, have any intention of letting up. I’ve enjoyed this series from the start and I very much look forward to the next one, although that one will hopefully have more Adam in it. 😉
Hell To Pay will be published on November 16th!
