I am so excited, bookish friends! Today I have a treat in store for you. If you’re a regular damppebbles visitor then you will know how much I love the Detective Kay Hunter series written by the immensely talented Rachel Amphlett. Well, today the cover and blurb of book six in the series is being released to the world. It’s called Gone to Ground and will be published worldwide on Sunday 8th July, eek!
So without further ado, here is the blurb:
While attending a crime scene on the outskirts of Maidstone, DI Kay Hunter makes a shocking discovery.
The victim has been brutally cut to pieces, his identity unknown.
When more body parts start turning up in the Kentish countryside, Kay realises the disturbing truth – a serial killer is at large and must be stopped at all costs.
With no motive for the murders and a killer who has gone undetected until now, Kay and her team of detectives must work fast to calm a terrified local population.
When a third victim is found, her investigation grows even more complicated.
As she begins to expose a dark underbelly to the county town, Kay and her team are pulled into a web of jealousy and intrigue that, if left unchecked, will soon claim another life.
Oh, I do love a dismembered body (in a fictional sense of course, otherwise that would be just plain weird!). I cannot wait to read this book and other more urgent reads may be put aside in the favour of it, but don’t tell anyone! Shhhhh…
If you haven’t had the pleasure of discovering this series yet then I urge you to get a wriggle on!
I won’t make you wait any longer. Here is the cover for Gone to Ground, book 6 in the Kay Hunter series:
Taddah! Isn’t it gorgeous?! I love it and think it’s my favourite so far. Particularly as there’s this nifty GIF too which I can’t stop watching. I do love a book cover GIF.
