Will To Live – Rachel Amphlett

Book Blurb:

Reputation is everything.

When a packed commuter train runs over a body on a stretch of track known to locals as “Suicide Mile”, it soon transpires that the man was a victim of a calculated murder.

As the investigation evolves and a pattern of murders is uncovered, Detective Sergeant Kay Hunter realizes the railway’s recent reputation may be the work of a brutal serial killer.

With a backlog of cold cases to investigate and attempting to uncover who is behind a professional vendetta against her, Kay must keep one step ahead of both the killer and her own adversaries.

When a second murder takes place within a week of the first, she realizes the killer’s timetable has changed, and she’s running out of time to stop him….

Will to Live is the second book in a new crime thriller series featuring Kay Hunter – a detective with a hidden past and an uncertain future….”

My Thoughts:

Welcome back to book two in this thrilling five book series in the ongoing life of Detective Kay Hunter.

Coming into book two we find Kay still in the police and still on the hunt.

The story of this one revolves around trains and railways, I have learned so much about railway lines since listening to this, who said audio books aren’t educational?

I was immediately swept along on this tale as Kay and the team try and figure out why people are dying on the rails, but as in book one Kay’s past is never far behind her.

The progression of Kay as a detective grows as this series progresses and it is believable and exciting to follow.

It’s the same with the other key players on the team, although you don’t find out much more about them, you can feel them growing as people, which I enjoy.

I love the mind of the killers in this series so far, being scared to death, then being run over by trains. I never want to meet these people at night or during the day. What does it say about the mind of the author? The mind boggles and shivers slightly.

Narration is brought to us again by the brilliant Alison Campbell who does this series no end of good with her easy to listen to style.

Another cracker of a thriller, if you are not on board with this series yet, you have no excuse, the more I listen, the better it gets.
