APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
This pulse-quickening procedural kickstarts Rachel Amphlett’s popular Kay Hunter series, debuting the tough English detective who refuses to play the victim. When it becomes apparent that a serial killer is not only targeting schoolgirls but gleefully baiting the police, Kay races the clock to catch the murderer while also facing down her own personal demons. Though the twisty plot takes some harrowing turns, English actress Alison Campbell narrates with great empathy and sensitivity, nailing all the emotional beats that make Scared to Death stand out in a crowded field of crime fiction.
