When the body of a naked man is found in the middle of a barren field, a rural community is left in shock – and fear.
Discovering that someone is offering money in return for information about the dead man and anyone connected to him, Detective Kay Hunter realises there is a dark side to the victim’s past.
When a key witness disappears and a web of deceit and lies threatens to derail the investigation, she fears the worst.
Can Kay and her team of detectives find out who is behind the man’s murder before another victim is targeted?
Turn to Dust is the ninth book in the Detective Kay Hunter series and perfect for readers who enjoy fast-paced murder mysteries.
Having only read the first couple of books in the Detective Kay Hunter series, having now read this one, the 9th book, I am quite annoyed with myself for not having read the others. This was a huge reminder that I have been missing out on some brilliant books. It reads well as a standalone though and there were only a couple of things that left me wondering about certain aspects of Kay’s life but not enough to spoil my enjoyment.
What an opening and more importantly, what a storyline! I don’t want to say too much in fear of giving away any spoilers but the way this victim died was baffling to say the least. Even getting further into the story wasn’t making things any clearer for me the reader, or Kay and her team. I thought this was one case that would have us all completely stumped and there would be no solving it.
The author opens a whole can of worms touching on different and very important topics. I’m not going to say which ones though, as again, the less you know about this book before heading in, the better. You need to read and discover it for yourself. It makes for some fascinating reading though and it blew my mind with where the author gets her ideas from and the research she must have done for this particular story.
Turn To Dust grabbed me by the throat and wasn’t letting me go anytime soon. This is one of the best story line’s in a detective novel that I have read in awhile. It was fresh and had me totally gripped by the authors skilful storytelling. If you haven’t already discovered this series for yourself then you really need to make a start. A brilliantly clever and addictive read.
