    Scared to Death is the first book in the Kay Hunter series. It is a crime thriller. I really enjoyed this book. It was very disturbing and had me on the edge of my seat from the very beginning to the end. It should satisfy any lover of serial killer fiction. It is so gripping and fast paced. This was dark and gritty with twists I didn't see coming. Lots of surprises in this one.Melanie is missing and her parents are distraught because she is nowhere to be found. When she is found the case is fir [...]

    Scared to Death is the first book in the Detective Kay Hunter series. The story pulled me in from the very beginning. The suspense is gripping and each scene is vividly described making the events spine-chillingly real.DS Kay Hunter is dedicated. She doesn’t dwell on the problems in her life and the backstory tells us she has plenty of personal problems she could be dwelling on.It’s a nice change to have a detective that’s not a divorced alcoholic. The reader is not heaped with Hunter’s [...]

    “Scared to death.” Most of us have heard the phrase, haven’t we? Perhaps we’ve even said it. But what if it actually happened? Melanie Richards is not an unusual teenage girl. Her mother is a successful businesswoman; her father is a man who is unable to control his mouth, and it has cost him a job or two. His daughter, unfortunately, has learned by example. When her mom goes away on a business trip and dad tags along on holiday, Melanie stays home alone. This was the opportunity her sta [...]

  5. Brenda says:

    The terror that Yvonne and Tony were feeling as they raced to save their daughter was immense – when Detective Kay Hunter arrived on the scene she was horrified at what the police had found. And so began a case as brutal as any the detectives had encountered in a long time. The kidnapping of seventeen year old Melanie was shocking; the police initially thought the kidnapper had made a mistake. But Kay wasn’t convinced; the anomalies in the case struck her and her team and they were determine [...]

    What a great start to a new series. Scared to Death grabbed me from the very first page and I stayed up very late to finish it.I really enjoyed the character of Kay Hunter. She was realistic, intelligent, organised and in a satisfactory and normal relationship. She was not an alcoholic, a mother who was not coping with family/work arrangements or an idiot who keeps putting herself in dangerous positions. In other words in this genre she is a breath of fresh air.The story is dark and quite brutal [...]

    I've been dying to read a book by this author for a while now after seeing many positive reviews. I decided to wade in with the first in a new crime series featuring Kay Hunter and I was not disappointed. If I have a checklist of things I enjoy in a book then Rachel Amphlett managed to tap into it. Scared to Death started with a bang and inserted me into the story from the first page. The fast pace of the story kept me glued to the story of Melanie's kidnapping. I am a fan of short chapters and [...]

    'The girl had knocked her head on something, and he didn't know what. There was blood on the side of her face, and while she was still unconscious, he checked and found a cut under her hair. Satisfied that it wasn't life threatening, he relaxed. He wanted her on his terms. He reached into the bag and pulled out the contents, lining them up along the plastic covering of a narrow brick shelf that ran along the wall next to him. Lipstick, mobile phone, purse - no notes, just change - a small box of [...]

    All of my reviews can be found on novelgossipOohhh what a fantastic beginning to a new series! I love nothing more than getting caught up in a new series and I’m so excited about this one featuring detective Kay Hunter. She’s intelligent, capable and tough, but she has enough skeletons in her closet to keep things interesting. She also has a keen intuition which makes her a sharp and formidable detective.The book starts out with a bang, a couple is racing against the clock to try and save th [...]

  13. Sarah says:

    This is the first novel I have read by this author and will certainly be reading more after reading this one!Scared To Death is the first book in a brand new crime series introducing us to Detective Kay Hunter.I have to say this was without a doubt one of those novels that you could easily devour in one sitting. As soon as I started it I knew I was in for a great reading experience, sadly real life got in the way and I ended up having to reluctantly read it over a few days instead. Believe me wh [...]

  14. Carol -Reading Writing and Riesling says:

    My View:Once you have been introduced to Detective Kay Hunter you will be firm friends. She is conscientious, driven, intelligent and hardworking and the author has generously provided a home life and a relationship that is strong and credible. Kay Hunter may have some personal and work issues that she is dealing with but these add to her credibility and make her a very well developed and realistic character. There is none of the desolate, drug addled or alcoholic traits that are so prevalent in [...]

  15. Magdalena aka A Bookaholic Swede says:

    Scared to Death is the first in a new series by Rachel Amphlett. I had not read anything by Rachel Amphlett before I read this book, but as a big time crime fan was I intrigued by the premise and the cover of the book. So, what makes this so special that you should pick it over other crime books?Personally, I just love when I instantly like the main character and Kay Hunter was just the kind of tough female cop that I like to read about. And, it was quite nice that she seems to be quite stable, [...]

  17. The Book Review Café says:

    Oh my god I absolutely loved Scared To Death from the first chapter I just knew it was going to be a crime thriller I would devour in a couple of sittings, and I was right. Scared To Death by Rachel Amphlett is the first book in a new series featuring Detective Kay Hunter, and the authors started the series with an humongous bang. A young girl is kidnapped and held hostage, but things take a sinister and deadly turn when the young girl is found dead, this is followed shortly by the disappearance [...]

    I would like to thank the author for sending me a copy.

  19. Mary says:

Then the father collapses with a heart attack and Kay attempts to resuscitate him. And as if that isn't enough, police realise that the girl, Melanie, has been set up so that she will eventually slip and fall and then strangle to death - with the criminal watching by remote camera. Kay and the team are working hard to find the killer - or is it kil [...]

  20. Karen says:

    SCARED TO DEATH is the first in a new series from author Rachel Amphlett. It's a switch from the earlier espionage styled Dan Taylor novels, to a police procedural featuring Detective Kay Hunter. From the opening scenes with parents Yvonne and Tony racing to provide the ransom money and recover their daughter Melanie, through to the police investigation that follows, there's plenty of intrigue and pace built into SCARED TO DEATH. It is a novel structured in form of police procedural precisely, b [...]

  21. Ann Girdharry says:

    This book gets off to a fantastic start. It delivers a double whammy to the reader, leaving you reeling from the shock and feeling terrible about what has just happened to the characters. Great stuff. Probably I was expecting too much after this, because I found myself turning the pages very quickly but the tension gradually leaked out of the story. In the end, I was reading just to find out what happened (though the plot became clear halfway through). If only that same punch from the beginning [...]

  22. Noelle says:

    My thanks to the author– Rachel Amphlett, for an ARC of this book which I have chosen to read/review and give honest feedback on.Set in Kent, the reader is taken on a whirlwind of a journey involving kidnap, the past, bullying, power & control, various levels of abuse and misplaced loyalties. What a ride!OMFG, #bookjunkies! To say I consumed this book like a chocolate-starved little girl who stumbles across a big bar of cadbury’s would be an understatement! This book sparked all my synap [...]

  23. Liz Barnsley says:

    Scared to Death is a fast paced intriguing crime thriller that I read in one huge gulp of a sitting, addictive and occasionally quite hard hitting this is the start of a new series from Rachel Amphlett and one that I will be following along with.Things I really liked: Or main protagonist Kay Hunter. A genuinely strong female character with, yes, some flaws and a semi mysterious backstory, but realistically so which made her highly believable and sucked you into the ongoing story. The opening for [...]

  25. Kerry says:

    Well, I recently joined in with Rachel Amphlett's blog tour for Book 3 in this series, so I thought it was about time I bumped Book 1 to the top of my list and I am so glad I did! Why have I never read a book by Rachel Amphlett before now??Scared to Death is a brilliant start to a new series. I warmed to Detective Kay Hunter immediately. There's a back story there that hasn't been fully explained as yet, which I find very intriguing. She seems to be up against her fair share of negativity at wor [...]

  26. Joseph - Relax And Read Reviews says:

    Discovering new talented authors is always very exciting, especially when their book's blurb promises a nail-biting, thrilling ride. I have to say that I'd never heard of author Rachel Amphlett before and it's only now that I realise how much I was missing out! 'Scared to Death' is the first book in her new DS Kay Hunter series."I have your daughter. If you want to see her alive again, follow these instructions."The author literally grabs the reader by the throat from the word go. The book kicks [...]

  27. Sharon says:

    The first chapter in the book certainly sets the pace for this novel - a young girl's parents are frantically driving around an industrial estate looking for their missing daughter and their terror is palpable in this opening gambit. This was a fast paced heart pounding read; a young girl is kidnapped for a measly ransom and when her body is found everyone thinks it is a kidnapping gone wrong but there is more to this than meets the eye. The story continues to pick up pace and keeps on running r [...]

    From the get-go I knew I was going to like Scared to Death.At the moment I think we are all, both bloggers and readers alike, very aware of the surge in Psychological Thrillers on the book shelves. Now this is not a bad thing in its own right, but sometimes it’s great to read a novel that falls into the genre of Crime Fiction with no psychological angle in the description.Scared to Death is just that.Kay Hunter is a detective who is trying to regain the trust of some of her colleagues. After a [...]

  29. Janel says:

    4.5 stars - If I was giving out book awards today, this book would receive two – firstly for ‘best opening chapter’ and secondly for ‘best last line.’ I can’t share the last line with you, you’ll have to read the book to see why that one made me laugh. But I can talk about the opening paragraph, it’s so thrilling, you can really feel the character’s urgency and you can do nothing but read on, so make sure you’ve got a clear schedule when you start this one!This is the first b [...]

  30. Emma says:

    I featured on the Scared to Death blog tour towards the end of 2016. At the time I felt I was really missing out as the reviews from fellow bloggers were fantastic. And in all honesty, I was. This is a fantastic start to what promises to be an outstanding series. The book starts with a bang and I was immediately drawn into the story. Seventeen year old Melanie is missing and her frantic parents, Tony and Yvonne are racing to find her after having dropped the £20k ransom off elsewhere. They find [...]
