By this time, with the fifth book in the series, you’d think I’d be prepared for another good book and, of course, I was but I really do think Rachel Amphlett has become one of my very favorite police procedural authors with Call to Arms. I expect to enjoy police procedurals for the tension and the action but this author takes it a step further by letting the reader really get to know the characters. Kay has been on medical leave but is finally back on desk duty and is already bored. Newly promoted to Detective Inspector, she’s on probation but she’s in a better position than DI Devon Sharp who’s under suspension during an internal investigation. Kay and her team set out to look into a ten-year-old cold case involving Sharp in hopes of clearing his name and will follow one thin lead after another, getting deeper and deeper in the muck of greed and addiction. What sets this series apart from others is the connection I’ve made with Kay and her colleagues. Even those we don’t know so well yet, such as Carys, are distinct in their personalities and I’m quite simply in book love with veterinarian Adam, Kay’s husband, and really enjoy the moments I get to spend with them and whatever random animal he’s brought home for a day or two. Kay and Adam have tragedy in their lives but they’re so committed to each other that they’re going to get through it. Alison Campbell is a terrific narrator and I really think she did a brilliant job with this entry. No matter who was speaking, I knew who it was because she’s so good with voices, making an already strong story even better. Call to Arms has so many personal issues for these characters while they delve into an old crime that I think it’s a story not to be missed. I’m adding it to my list of best books read in 2018 and am already salivating for book #6.
