I am absolutely OVER THE MOON to be joining in with Rachel Amphlett’s Gone To Ground blog tour! 🙂
Many thanks to Rachel Amphlett and Emma at #damppebblesblogtours
What a brilliantly light-hearted last couple of pages to what is a horrifying serial killer thriller! An awesome addition to the excellent Detective Kay Hunter series. If you haven’t read this series as yet then I highly recommend that you do. You don’t know what you’re missing out on.
Gone To Ground is the sixth book in the Kay Hunter series and they just get better. I have thoroughly enjoyed it! I warmed to Kay and her team from book one, but they have really grown on me over the series. They are dedicated to their jobs and to each other, but we do get to see a personal side to them also.
In this book Kay and her team find themselves investigating the discovery of a severed foot. This gruesome discovery leads them to a victim who has been cut in to pieces and it isn’t long before they realise they have a serial killer on their hands. But what connects these victims and what possible motive could someone have to commit such horrific crimes?
What starts off as a somewhat frustrating case, with no apparent leads, soon ramps up when things start clicking in to place and the brutal truth left me absolutely gobsmacked. This killer is a whole new level of psycho! My skin was literally crawling. Rachel Amphlett knows how to create despicable human beings!
This is a compelling murder mystery, full of suspense, twists and turns. The story flows perfectly and as a reader I felt every frustration as well as the delight of every positive lead as the investigation progresses. Brilliantly written! If you like a good crime thriller you will love it. I love Rachel Amphlett’s writing style. Short chapters add to the tension and the fast-paced storyline. A true example of a gripping page-turner. I LOVED it and I highly recommend.
Many thanks to Rachel Amphlett for my ARC. I am thrilled to be a part of the blog tour 🙂
While attending a crime scene on the outskirts of Maidstone, DI Kay Hunter makes a shocking discovery.
The victim has been brutally cut to pieces, his identity unknown.
When more body parts start turning up in the Kentish countryside, Kay realises the disturbing truth – a serial killer is at large and must be stopped at all costs.
With no motive for the murders and a killer who has gone undetected until now, Kay and her team of detectives must work fast to calm a terrified local population.
When a third victim is found, her investigation grows even more complicated.
As she begins to expose a dark underbelly to the county town, Kay and her team are pulled into a web of jealousy and intrigue that, if left unchecked, will soon claim another life.
