I so wish I’d had time to read this sooner, but it was totally worth the wait! I love this series. Rachel Amphlett never disappoints, I just love her writing style and her characters are extremely likeable. It’s like catching up with old friends with each new book. Well, kind of like when you catch up with old friends at a funeral…… It’s not under the happiest of circumstances, but you’re glad to see them again all the same (if that makes sense!).
Kay Hunter is back and, along with her team, is faced with a mummified body which has fallen through the ceiling of a relatively new office building. As always, nothing is quite as it seems and all sorts of secrets are uncovered as the investigation progresses. Dodgy business practices amongst other things, which I’m sure goes on in the real world too! I had absolutely no idea which way the story would go and was totally shocked by the end and also a bit sad. Absolutely brilliant writing, as always.
Kay Hunter is definitely a favourite of mine. She has a good team, all of whom I warmed to quickly. They are dedicated professionals, but we do see a personal side to them which I like. Kay’s relationship with Adam is heart-warming, especially considering the grief they share. I love that each book features some animal or other which Adam brings home from work (as a vet)!
Kay’s difficult relationship with her mother is very believable and quite sad.
In my opinion this book has it all and is exactly what I look for in a police procedural/crime thriller. Each and every one of the books in this series has been thoroughly enjoyable. I highly recommend!
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?
