(Detective Kim Stone crime thriller series Book 8)
How far would you go to protect your darkest secrets?
When teenager Sadie Winter jumps from the roof of her school, her death is ruled as suicide – a final devastating act from a troubled girl. But then the broken body of a young boy is discovered at the same school and it’s clear to Detective Kim Stone that these deaths are not tragic accidents.
As Kim and her team begin to unravel a dark web of secrets, one of the teachers could hold the key to the truth. Yet just as she is about to break her silence, she is found dead.
With more children’s lives at risk, Kim has to consider the unthinkable – whether a fellow pupil could be responsible for the murders. Investigating the psychology of children that kill brings the detective into contact with her former adversary, Dr Alex Thorne – the sociopath who has made it her life’s work to destroy Kim.
Desperate to catch the killer, Kim finds a link between the recent murders and an initiation prank that happened at the school decades earlier. But saving these innocent lives comes at a cost – and one of Kim’s own might pay the ultimate price.
The utterly addictive new crime thriller from the Number One bestselling author – you will be gripped until the final shocking twist.
My Review – 5 stars
Oh my gosh. I’m definitely not giving away any spoilers for this. You will need to read it yourself. Needless to say, I also need the #DyingTruthSupportGroup like a few others who’ve reviewed it.
The eighth in the D.I. Kim Stone series, continuing in the same way….brilliant and gripping.
I was hooked in from the start, there is just no let-up in the action. Yet again it was one of those books that I wanted to read at every opportunity.
Things have gone on behind the walls of Heathcrest, an elite school for the children of the rich and influential and also for the talented kids of the ‘normal’ people. Kim and her team try to get to the bottom of the tangled web of information they have.
I love Kim’s working relationship with Bryant, he knows her so well. Stace was mostly back to her usual role of being attached to a desktop pc, working her magic getting information from people’s phones and computers. Dawson was being his usual inquisitive self and going on his Stone-like instinct.
I think the story was excellent, and I never guessed how it would go. Reading an Angie Marsons book I find out so many things. I feel like I learn something new with every book. This time it was secret societies.
There was one particular chapter where I was totally shocked, I may have shed a tear and I definitely shouted out loud! This one will stay with me for a long time.
I recommend this book 100%, and all the others in the series.
Angie Marsons is definitely one of my favourite authors, I think the books are just fantastic.
Thanks to Bookouture and NetGalley for the review copy in which I give my honest review.
