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?
I can’t believe this is already the seventh book in this series, and that the quality has not diminished since that first book that captivated my attention. This time, Kay Hunter investigates the case of a man found mummified in a building under renovations. At the same time, she’s also dealing with some family drama, which won’t make things easy.
The story trapped me from the start. Who was the man they found and who had killed and why was he hidden there? There were several twists and turns and we only find the culprit towards the end, and it was not at all who I expected. We met the usual sidekicks helping Kay on this case, and several other characters who made this tale a convoluted story in which everyone seemed to have a hidden agenda.
Kay seems much more confident than in previous books. We have seen her and her team evolve, and I have to say that seven books have made me care for all of them, and listening to a new installment is like returning to a group of old friends.
Alison Campbell’s style and voice is the perfect match for these stories, and she is for me an essential part in the series. She has not only become Kay Hunter but also brought a varied cast to life, even employing different accents and styles.
I am ready for the next book in the series, whenever Amphlett has it ready for us. I am an unconditional Kay Hunter’s fan.
My name is Elena. Since I was a little child I loved science fiction and fantasy, and I can’t resist a good novel. In 2015, while wait I started to listen to audiobooks and I discovered the pleasure in being able to read while doing my daily tasks, so there’s always an audiobook playing on my phone. If you see me with my Bluetooth headphones on, please be gentle, I get easily startled.
I live with my boyfriend, which I met during my six-year stay in Belgium, four cockatiels, eight lovebirds, and a hamster in Madrid, Spain; and I like to spend my free time knitting and sewing while listening to audiobooks.
