Blood Lines by Angela Marsons




(Detective Kim Stone crime thriller series Book 5)

How do you catch a killer who leaves no trace?
A victim killed with a single, precise stab to the heart appears at first glance to be a robbery gone wrong. A caring, upstanding social worker lost to a senseless act of violence. But for Detective Kim Stone, something doesn’t add up.

When a local drug addict is found murdered with an identical wound, Kim knows instinctively that she is dealing with the same killer. But with nothing to link the two victims except the cold, calculated nature of their death, this could be her most difficult case yet.

Desperate to catch the twisted individual, Kim’s focus on the case is threatened when she receives a chilling letter from Dr Alex Thorne, the sociopath who Kim put behind bars. And this time, Alex is determined to hit where it hurts most, bringing Kim face-to-face with the woman responsible for the death of Kim’s little brother – her own mother.

As the body count increases, Kim and her team unravel a web of dark secrets, bringing them closer to the killer. But one of their own could be in mortal danger. Only this time, Kim might not be strong enough to save them…

A totally gripping thriller that will have you hooked from the very first page to the final, dramatic twist.


My Review – 5 stars

The fifth in the D.I. Kim Stone series, continuing the brilliant, gripping series.

Great writing and a fab plot. I was captivated from the start.

Yet again it was one of those books that you want to read at every opportunity.

OMG!! Dr Alexandra Thorne is back. She featured in Book 2 ‘Evil Games’. She’s locked up but still able to get into people’s minds. And that includes Kim Stone, she seems to know every one of Kim’s weaknesses. The strong character of Kim shines through, even when things seem to be getting on top of her.

Kim’s working relationship with Bryant is great, he knows her so well. I felt Dawson had a bigger role this time too, I like him. Stace was her usual self, mostly attached to a desktop pc working her magic. Love the spelling out in the local dialect 🙂

I think the story was excellent, and I never guessed how it would go. There were some unexpected twist and turns, and it was fantastic.

I recommend this book 100%, and all the others in the series.

Angie Marsons is definitely one of my favourite authors.

Thanks to Bookouture and NetGalley for my review copy in exchange for an honest review.
