"If you want to see your daughter alive again, listen carefully." When the body of a snatched schoolgirl is found in an abandoned biosciences building, the case is first treated as a kidnapping gone wrong. But Detective Kay Hunter isn't convinced, especially when a man is found dead with the ransom money still in his possession. When a second schoolgirl is taken, Kay's worst fears are realised. With her career in jeopardy and desperate to conceal a disturbing secret, Kay's hunt for the killer becomes a race against time before he claims another life. For the killer, the game has only just begun... Scared to Death is a gripping fast paced crime thriller from author Rachel Amphlett, and the first book in a series introducing Kay Hunter - a detective with a hidden past and an uncertain future...
