Great first in series

Really enjoyed getting to know the characters in this book. A good strong female lead surrounded by bullying bosses. Can't wait to start book 2

Scared to Death starts with a bang!
The parents of a young school girl are racing against the clock to get to their daughter, who has been kidnapped. They must reach her in time, otherwise she dies . . .
What a nightmare this starts out with! Every parents worst fear is realised in the first page of this book and the tension, fear and mental anguish doesn't stop at all!
Amphlett writes so well, I loved how I was totally drawn into the words of this book, completely a totally gripping me from the first word to the last. I sometimes find that when we are reading the first of a series, the author tends to focus a lot on building the characters (which is fine by the way, it's such an important part of the writing/reading process) but it does sometimes mean that the focus on the story is lost and perhaps the actually story is lost, not with Amphlett though, Oh no! Amphlett not only manages to build an amazing set of characters that I am desperate to know more about, she also delivers an amazingly gripping, thrilling and completely absorbing story too.
There is no let up in this book, we are taken a roller coaster of twists and turns as the team race against the clock to catch a killer.
Scared to Death is a fast paced, gritty page turner that will leave you on the edge of your seat, gasping for breath!
I would highly recommend this to any crime book fans, it's a belter!!!!
