May 2017 Book of the Month and eBook of the Month.

Another wonderfully twisty and chilling case in the ‘Jessie Flynn Crime Thriller’ series. Captain Ben Callan investigates a suspicious death on a base, as the case uncoils Dr Jessie Flynn and DI Simmons become involved, and unexpected links appear. The connection between the armed forces and police adds a fascinating note to this series, and the author’s background ensures a feeling of authenticity. Each of the three main characters have their flaws, yet combined, they make a formidable force to be reckoned with. This novel is so very readable, I just leapt in and didn't stop until I turned the last page. With a whipping, corkscrewing plot and fast paced action, ‘Scared to Death’ just roars along, ensuring a worthwhile and entirely captivating read. ~ Liz Robinson

Synopsis

Scared to Death by Kate Medina

A baby is abandoned in the middle of the night at Royal Surrey County Hospital. DI Bobby 'Marilyn' Simmons suspects the father is planning to take his own life following the violent suicide of his eldest son Danny a year earlier. The race is on to find him. Captain Ben Callan is investigating a suspicious death. Just sixteen years old, Stephen Foster has been stabbed in the neck with a screwdriver. Someone tried to save his life - but who? And why haven't they come forward? When psychologist Dr Jessie Flynn is called in to consult on both cases, she sees connections between the deaths of Danny and Stephen. And when she starts counselling a third traumatized young man, Jessie fears he faces the same fate...
