Many thanks to Tracy Fenton and Compulsive Readers for my spot on this Blog Tour.

This was one wowza of a book, gripped me from the beginning to end. Man, am I loving police procedurals nowadays.

DI Kay Hunter was one of a kind, sharp and hardworking with a hidden vulnerability due to personal losses. A murder and a missing child got the entire team roused up. And the investigation started…

My first book in the series by author Rachel Amphlett, though 8th line, I thoroughly enjoyed this ride. A missing child always creates a flutter of excitement in me. Kay was strong and capable, she knew how to delegate the tasks. A born leader was she.

Rachel’s writing made it extremely easy to get to know the team. The sense of urgency was keenly felt with the way words were strung. Burgeoning tension became the norm as I turned the pages. The team worked at a pace I found amazing; friendship and respect were their code of conduct. Even when the risks were high, they found a way out.

It was soon obvious that the author was a seasoned hand at maintaining the suspense till the end. The twists and turns altering the route of the investigation had me smiling. I expected nothing less in my first read by this brilliant author.

An rocking immersive read, indeed.

I received a free ARC from Tracy and the author, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

All my reviews can be read here

USA Today bestseller Rachel Amphlett writes crime fiction and spy novels, including the Kay Hunter British detective series, the Dan Taylor espionage novels, the English Spy Mysteries featuring Eva Delacourt, and a number of standalone crime thrillers.

Rachel is a member of International Thriller Writers and the Crime Writers Association, with the Italian foreign rights for her debut novel, White Gold, being sold to Fanucci Editore’s TIMECrime imprint, and the first four books in the Dan Taylor espionage series contracted to Germany’s Luzifer Verlag.

When a faceless body is found floating in the river on a summer’s morning, Detective Kay Hunter and her team are tasked with finding out the man’s identity – and where he came from.

The investigation takes a sinister turn when an abandoned boat is found, covered in blood stains and containing a child’s belongings.

Under mounting pressure from a distraught family and an unforgiving media, the police are in a race against time – but they have no leads, and no motive for the events that have taken place.

Will Kay be able to find a ruthless killer and a missing child before it’s too late?
