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 realises 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 realises the killer’s timetable has changed, and she’s running out of time to stop him…
Will To Live is the second novel in the Detective Kay Hunter crime series. I would recommend reading Scared To Death which is the first in the series before reading this one for full enjoyment, plus it’s a great book.
The start of this novel has to be one of the best starts to a story that I have read in a long while. Boy did the author grab me by the collar and send me hurdling through the novel. In other words, from that point on I was well and truly hooked and couldn’t put the book down.
Reading of someone being killed by a train is probably not for the faint hearted, but boy does it make for a shocking and gripping read. At times I was literally terrified to read on as to what was going to happen next. It’s like a horror film when you know what’s coming and as much as you want to turn your head away, your eyes are fully glued to what’s happening. Loved it!
Kay and her team seriously have their work cut out to try and find out who is behind the very sinister going on’s. I have to say Cary’s, as much as she does Kay’s head in trying to prove herself, really steps up in the novel and at one my point my heart was literally in my mouth.
Will To Live is a fabulous follow up to what is already set out to be a brilliant crime series. Definitely one for crime readers that love to be thriller.
My thanks to the author for an advanced copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
Goodreads rating 5/5 stars.
