Today I’m part of the blog tour for Kill for Me by Rebecca Bradley and I’m sharing my review. Many thanks to Emma at Damppebbles Blog Tours for the invite.
About the book
A deadly game. An unstoppable killer. The perfect alibi.
Lucy Anderson is late collecting her daughter from nursery. A mistake that could prove fatal.
Her daughter is gone and there is only one way Lucy can get her back. The ransom is simple, she has to kill someone…
And this is just the beginning. A deadly game with a domino effect has started as the real killer forces others to do his bidding.
Can detective inspector Hannah Robbins find the killer’s next puppet before they’re forced to strike or will this be the case where her opponent has found the perfect way to kill?
Pick up Kill For Me for impossible choices and moral dilemmas and see where you would fall.
For fans of Peter James and Angela Marsons

Oh my goodness, I am absolutely kicking myself just now. As you’ll see this is book number five in the series but the first book I’ve read, I’m really kicking myself. I have a couple of the other books on my kindle but just haven’t got round to reading them, still kicking myself. So I went in to Kill for Me having never met any of the characters before but that didn’t matter thankfully and I settled in nicely.
The story starts off running, Lucy is late picking up her daughter, her daughter has gone and the only way to get her back is for Lucy to kill someone. What then follows is a crazy chain of events involving many people, threatened with things that could hurt them in the worst possible way and I couldn’t help wondering how I would react in each situation.
Given this is a very unique plot I’m not going to say anymore about it due to the fear I give something away. I will say however that I haven’t read anything quite like it.
The characters were quite easy to get to know, although I did at times feel a bit like an outsider with references to things that must have happened in previous books but that didn’t put me off, if anything it’s made me more excited to read the previous books. The policing side of the story is told fantastically and you get a real sense of being involved. I do like to play detective even though I’m rubbish at it.
Over all I thoroughly enjoyed this book, if I had my time again I would start at the beginning though and work my way through the series but I do believe this does work well as a stand-alone too.
Fast paced, with twists and turns, a unique story that certainly kept me gripped from beginning to end, Kill for Me is definitely a story I’ll be recommending.
