Rachel Amphlett’s Detective Kay Hunter series is simply brilliant. Whodunit, mystery, or crime fiction fans will be pleasantly surprised with her skill in plotting a crime with unique twists. A very creative book to say the least.
Detective Kay Hunter and company must unravel a mysterious murder of a young teen at a party full of inebriated guests. An elitist church group, a strange pastor, bickering aristocrats, and young teens are involved in classic whodunit.
There’s also a running subplot since the beginning of book one that’ll keep you on your toes. Who is out to get Detective Kay Hunter? Someone is trying to sideline her every move and keep an eye on her. That makes things very interesting!
NARRATOR PERFORMANCE: 10/10
- Narrator-Story Connection: 10/10
Allison Campbell is absolutely brilliant in every book of this series. She completely envelops herself full into the book, characters and plot, so it makes it easy to dive right into the story. Superb.
- Voice Switch Over: Brewer 10/10 Cassidy 10/10
This is what separates mediocre narrators from the great ones. Creativity in voice creation and the ability to switch between at will throughout the entire book. No easy feat for sure, but Allison nails it every time.
Some notable voices – Wealthy American couple. Male and Female. Aristocrat male and female voices with distinctive accents.
- Pacing 10/10
Allison has a nice even pace that isn’t too slow or fast. This can be a critical element in a book if the narrator’s pace is off for some reason. I think it can make or break an audiobook in my opinion.
- Emphasis 10/10
Great emphasis that successfully brings out the personality of the character and their feelings. Wonderful.

This is how well the narrator draws me into the story their narrative performance. If I’m lost in a story then it’s a plus!
