Title : Bridge to Burn
Series : Kay Hunter #7
Pages : 358
Publisher : Saxon Publishing
Publication date : January 13, 2019


When a mummified body is found in a renovated building, the gruesome discovery leads Detective Kay Hunter and her team into a complex murder investigation.

The subsequent police inquiry exposes corruption, lies and organised crime within the tight-knit community – and Kay’s determination to seek justice for the young murder victim could ruin the reputations of men who will do anything to protect their business interests.

But as Kay closes in on the killer, tragedy strikes closer to home in an event that will send a shockwave through her personal life and make her question everything she values.

Can Kay keep her private and professional life under control while she tries to unravel one of the strangest murder cases of her career?


Whenever a Kay Hunter book lands on my Kindle, I get quite excited because I just know I’ll be in for a treat. Bridge to Burn is no different. By now, getting to hang out with Kay Hunter almost feels like meeting up with a friend for coffee and cake, asking them how their week went. Almost, because Kay’s job obviously leads to topics that aren’t exactly fun conversations to be had over something as delicious as cake.

Case in point, this time around Kay and her team find themselves in the middle of a complex investigation when a mummified body is found in the ceiling of an office building. As you do. Who is this person? How did they get there? Was it an accident, a dare gone wrong or were they killed? So many questions!

And just like that we’re off on a journey through corruption, lies and a criminal or two. This intricate plot didn’t at all go where I thought it would go and it kept me guessing until the end. Sure, I had a long list of suspects but I couldn’t spot a motive anywhere which led to much frustration and endless mutterings. Every time it felt like the team was making progress, something would happen that put them right back at square one. As events unfold, you feel as if you’re right there with them, trying to figure it all out.

With each new Kay Hunter instalment, my expectations are high and Rachel Amphlett manages to deliver every single time. This series is rock solid, has been from the very beginning. Kay and her team make for fantastic characters and I love how Rachel Amphlett continues to combine Kay’s job and her personal life effortlessly. Because isn’t that how things are? Sometimes you take the job home with you, sometimes you take home to work with you. It makes it all so much more realistic and believable.

If you haven’t yet gotten to know Kay, please do so. This is truly a fantastic series which keeps going from strength to strength and I can’t wait to hang out with Kay again soon!

With thanks to Rachel Amphlett for the review copy!
