His lips had thinned. ‘You were told to be quiet. Maybe you need a stronger message.’

He’d bent over and placed the phone on the tiled floor, then straightened and moved closer to the hole. He’d flicked the knife up. ‘Give me your hand.’

The girl whimpered, and shook her head, trying to twist away from him.

His hand had shot out, wrapped around her right wrist, and raised it until it was above her head.

Behind him, he could hear the parents’ voices, shouting, pleading with him to pick up the phone.

He’d ignored them and raised the knife.

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.

    • Hi Meggy,

      Thanks for stopping by today. I love ‘meeting’ new people, so your visits and comments will always be welcome and appreciated 🙂

      To my shame, I have had this book sat in my TBR pile for far too long and Rachel was not only sweet enough to write such a lovely guest post, she even gifted me a copy of the second ‘Kay Hunter’ book ‘Will To Die’

      Rachel, I really do love the book so far and I definitely want to stay involved with the series, so please don’t give up on me!!

      Meggy, we seem to have very similar reading tastes, so I look forward to chatting with you some more in the future 🙂

  • Oh, my! That’s certainly a thrilling teaser! I know you enjoy books like this, so I hope it’s meeting your expectations. Looking forward to your final review.

    • Hi Kelly,

      More than meeting my expectations, there are plenty of twists and turns in the story line! The only downside for some might be that there are young people involved.

      Rachel is certainly making a name for herself with this series and I am pleased to report that I have got into it at the beginning, as ‘Scared To Death’ is the first installment.

      Thanks to Rachel being so generous, I also have part two ‘Will To Live’ on my virtual shelf. I haven’t downloaded this book as yet, but it will be featuring in ‘Mailbox Monday’ very soon!

      I hope that you are enjoying your summer 🙂

    • Hi Laura,

      Author Rachel Amphlett has certainly hit on a winning formula with her new series featuring Detective Kay Hunter.

      There doesn’t seem to be much in the way of specialist help or analysis in the story, just Kay and her team trying to psyche out their main suspect, although unbeknown to them at this stage, I can reveal that Kay is going to get one more surprise that she hasn’t bargained for!

      Definitely comes highly recommended and I’m only about 75% done so far!

      Thanks for taking the time to visit, I appreciate your comment 🙂

    • Hi Emma,

      Rachel certainly has attracted some excellent critique and her popularity is growing daily with the conception of her new ‘Kay Hunter’ series, with ‘Scared To Death’ being the first installment.

      Rachel also has a pretty cool website, where she not only features her own work, but also manages a neat blog, where she discusses her own best reads and interviews many of her contemporary authors.

      I hope that some of Rachel’s books find their way to your TBR pile very soon and thanks for taking the time to comment 🙂
