I thought One to Watch was a great book. This is the 3rd installment in the Kay Hunter detective series, of which I am now a firm fan. Although I have chosen to read the series in order, I believe that One to Watch would be fine to listen to on its own, too. The main plot here is unique, with plenty of "I didn't see THAT coming!" moments. The author sets the stage with a teenage girl who is taking a 'Purity Pledge,' a concept that is actually common in some parts of the U.S., as we are shown by the priest who brings the ideals to this small English town. At her Pledge Ceremony, she is found murdered by her best friend, and the pool of suspects, including a boyfriend, a betrothed, parents, clergy, and more. I think One to Watch was highly entertaining due largely to some over-the-top characters whose status as old-money royalty they cannot give up, even with bankruptcy looming; or whose newer arrival to Britain isn't good enough without family links to the aristocracy. This added a dash of humor, and it was fun to watch serious Kay and her protoge Carys play along with them. The subplot of the vendetta against Kay moves further along, and she forms an alliance with the one person in the force who she feels she can trust- or so she hopes.
Overall very enjoyable with twists I didn't see coming, and it kept me listening, so I highly recommend One to Watch.

This was yet another great police detective thriller by Rachel Amphlett. As with the first two books in the series, it was gritty, realistic, and suspenseful. Another great partnership between Rachel Amphlett and Allison Campbell.
