DI Kayli Bright is called to the scene of a terrible accident that appears to be a case of careless driving. However, her gut reaction tells her there’s much more at stake. Within hours, her suspicions are confirmed when she is called to investigate a second incident on the same stretch of road. This time there is no doubt in Kayli's mind that she's dealing with a murder enquiry.
Are the two incidents connected? Is Kayli looking for a driver with a severe case of road rage? Or is there a twisted serial killer on her patch?
As Kayli sifts through the web of lies to capture the killer, her personal life seems to be falling apart. Her fiancé, Mark, returns home from his new job oversees a changed man. What is he hiding? Could Mark's dark secret be destructive enough to put an end to their relationship?
Having read and enjoyed the thrilling first book in the DI Kayli Bright trilogy, 'The Missing Children', I couldn't wait for the second one 'Killer on the Run' to be published. There were some loose ends left in the first book, and so I wanted to know how the story continues. Now that I've read it, all I can say is 'WOW', I enjoyed this heart-pounding read even more!
This book starts off with a horrific traffic accident in which a woman loses her life. But something doesn't sit right with the accident investigators and so Kayli and her partner, Dave Chaplin, are called to the scene. How did the woman die in a fairly safe stretch of road? Was she drunk after a night out? Did she pass out? Or did something more sinister happen to her? When a second fatal accident takes place soon after in the same stretch of road, Kayli becomes convinced that the two deaths are connected and that these weren't traffic accidents, but murders. CCTV footage proves her right and soon Kayli finds herself in a race against time to catch a killer who seems to be lurking in that road. But who is this person? Why are they doing this? Kayli must find out, and fast before yet another life is lost at the hands of this demented killer on the run.
WOW, OK. If there's one writer that takes my breath away with tension with each and every one of her books, then that's definitely Mel Comley. I have read and enjoyed all the brilliant books she's written, and 'Killer on the Run' is nothing less. This is yet another action-packed, fast-paced, cracking thriller that had me hooked from the terrifying prologue and kept me glued till the end. The continuous movement, twists and turns, and the conversational, casual dialogue the author implements in every page of her books make it simply impossible to read slowly, and I ended up devouring the whole book in a couple of hours. I wanted to know who the killer was, why they were killing these people, whether there was some connection between the victims. And what about Kayli's personal life? Will she solve the issues she's been facing?
Well I really enjoyed this book and I highly recommend it, but it would be better to read this trilogy in order. This book ends in a massive cliffhanger that left me desperate to know what happens next, in book 3.
