I'm glad that Ms. Amphlett has given Kay a loving and kind husband. So many times authors have to pile on the confusion and unhappiness by have the lead character had problems both at home and at work. That's why I enjoy Adam's depiction.
Once I get done, then I can go back for a 2nd more leisurely reading to see what I missed in the first go-round. I realize that not everyone will understand that way of reading a book, but it works for me.
Kay leads the team as they investigate the cold case that led to the death of one man. The story was decently paced and intriguing. I was hooked from the beginning of this page-turner and it held my attention until the last word was read. I like the way the books in this series draw you in and keep your interest. This was the best one so far and I am looking forward to GONE TO GROUND.
DI Sharp is still on leave due to the circumstances in the last book , so Kay gets to take charge. She actually has a civil conversation with Larch! Better yet, Larch was actually made a little more human in this book. Kay handled herself really well in a leadership capacity, and I liked how well the team worked together with her in charge.
Kay is still recovering physically and mentally from her run-in with Joseph Demiri, and considering how her appointment with the psychiatrist went, I'm guessing it'll continue to be an issue. Luckily, she has Adam to lean on, and he got to lean on her a bit in this book too.
All of Ms. Amphlett's characters are three-dimensional (with the exception of Larch). They are human, with flaws and concerns, and love and laughter. It's one of the things I love most about her stories. Kay and Adam's solid marriage is her backbone, keeping her strong to tackle the things she has to face daily. Her friendships are like hedgerows, guiding her, going along with her, standing by her side.
Originally worried about her portrayal of Larch as too much of a caricature, she managed to make him human, albeit too late, IMO. I wish she had given him more backstory in the earlier books. He finally felt "real".
This story was very moving and so, so sad. It was life which, it is often stated, is stranger than fiction.
In I have read the five books in this series in Two weeks.please buy her books they are all amazing I can hardly wait for the next book.Thank you so much Rachel for all your good work

Acting up in his absence, she’s bored with shuffling paper and organising the team. Then she takes an interest in a cold case that may hold the key to her boss’s future. It may also be her undoing due to the personal involvement Sharp has with the case.
With memories vague and progress slow, the investigation is a credit to Kay’s determination as she chips away at the witnesses, uncovering little fragments of information that begin to cast doubt on the original verdict.
As the details fall into place, the pace picks up to a satisfying climax that offers surprise rather than the nail biting tension and action of the previous novel.
I love Kay’s determination and the way she’s grounded by her marriage to vet, Adam, who provides solid support and various animals that he looks after at home. In this case, it’s Rufus, the German Shepherd, who prompts one of the most moving scenes in the book.
If you haven’t read any of the Kay Hunter novels, please start with the first to get maximum enjoyment from the way the characters develop over the series as this is top draw crime writing, based on strong, likeable characters you will root for.
In Call To Arms Kay returns to work on so called light duties after almost losing her life (you'll have to read the series!). She find herself acting DI and doesn't have much time to recover before being faced with a decade old cold case and finding proof to clear her colleague's name. Her career, and her colleague's, depends on a positive outcome to this re-opened investigation. What was deemed a tragic motorbike accident, years ago, is looking more and more suspicious as the team revisit family, old friends and witnesses involved at the time and the truth is more shocking than anyone could have ever imagined, me especially!
This is a fast-paced, beautifully written police procedural with twists and turns galore. I love this team, their dedication to one another and the banter they share. They are a very likeable bunch. Kay is a very dedicated detective, but is also very real and believable. I love the small details Rachel Amphlett uses to make her all the more human to the reader, including little habits such as rubbing her right eye when she's nervous, upset, agitated..... These kind of things really bring a character to life for me.
Every single chapter in this book, and in the series as a whole, makes you have to keep reading. I've had to force myself to put it down when other things have had to be done, but trust me, I could have quite happily read this in one sitting.
I can't wait to read book 6, Gone To Ground.
This one is just all a bit twee. There's too much description of dull stuff. 'Kay took off her jacket and hung it up' and two many repetitive scenes of drinking wine with Adam.
Lazy writing. Iost count of the number of sentences that began with 'Kay sighed'
I won't be reading any more in the series. Shame
Main character reminded me of Hilary Green in Faith Martin's excellent series .
As with all series , although the books stand alone , much better to start with book 1 and get the back story.
These five books could be read as individuals but are much better to follow the series through. A seriously good author.
Love a good murder mystery.
