Book review : One To Watch By Rachel Amplhlett
One to watch is the third entry in the detective kay hunter series following on albeit indirectly from scared to death and will to live .
Sophie Whittaker shared a terrifying secret. Hours later, she was dead.
Detective Kay Hunter and her colleagues are shocked by the vicious murder of a teenage girl at a private party in the Kentish countryside.
A tangled web of dark secrets is exposed as twisted motives point to a history of greed and corruption within the tight-knit community.
Confronted by a growing number of suspects and her own enemies who are waging a vendetta against her, Kay makes a shocking discovery that will make her question her trust in everyone she knows.
This is the third book in the kay hunter series and it may well be the best yet.
One to watch differs from the previous two books as the killer only strikes once. The poor victim being 18 year old Sophie Whittaker murdered at a purity party . Her murder opens up the proverbial can of worms and exposes a spiders web of secrets .
The main plot revolves around purity pledges and since this isn't something i know a great deal about it was interesting , if a little creepy to read about .
Revolving around a single crime means that you get an entire cast of characters to play the who dunnit game with and as ever i got it completely wrong and i guarantee you will too.
Alongside all this is the subplot involving kay’s mission to identify and expose the people who very nearly cost her her job after an investigation gone wrong , in one to watch Amphlett really turns up the wick with this subplot and i can't wait to see where it ends up.
On the whole One To Watch proves to be the exact opposite of a difficult third album , each book is more interesting, twisted,intriguing and funnier than the last .
I can't help but feel that One To Watch is the perfect way to describe this rising star of a crime series. All in its yet another home run for Rachel Amplett.
Verdict : Cracker.
