(Detective Kim Stone crime thriller series Book 9)
Eeeny meeny, miney, moe. Who lives, who dies only I know.
When the body of a doctor is discovered brutally murdered in local woodland, Detective Kim Stone is shocked to discover the victim is Gordon Cordell – a man linked to a previous case she worked on involving the death of a young school girl. Gordon has a chequered past, but who would want him dead?
As the investigation gets underway, Gordon’s son is involved in a horrific car crash which leaves him fighting for his life. Kim’s sure this was no accident.
Then the body of a woman is found dead in suspicious circumstances and Kim makes a disturbing link between the victims and Russells Hall Hospital. The same hospital where Gordon worked.
With Kim and her team still grieving the loss of one of their own, they’re at their weakest and facing one of the most dangerous serial killers they’ve ever encountered. Everything is on the line. Can Kim keep her squad together and find the killer before he claims his next victim?
The killer is picking off his victims at a terrifying pace, and he’s not finished yet.
From multi-million copy number one bestseller Angela Marsons comes another absolutely nail-biting, edge-of-your-seat crime thriller.
My Review – 5 stars
The ninth in the D.I. Kim Stone series, continuing in the same way….brilliant and gripping.
I read at every opportunity, the short chapters were perfect to sneak in when I could and also gave a good pace to the book…..another chapter, just one more etc.
Kim is still suffering from the leg injury picked up in the previous book, obviously this doesn’t stop her as she is as stubborn and headstrong as usual!
There is a new member of Kim’s team. It’s a bit awkward as the previous gang were so close-knit. They have a little move about with the desks and Stacey moves to a new spot. This seems to comfort her a bit. The newbie, Penn, will have a tough time fitting in. He does his best, bless him, and brings in cakes and biscuits. He’s very good at his job so this goes a long way in calming the waves.
Kim and her team struggle to get a firm lead in the tangled web of information they have.
How the author keeps coming up with these fab books just astonishes me, the content is amazing. It wouldn’t be an Angie Marsons without some brutality and shocking scenes. The car crash creeped me out!
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.
All my reviews are quite short and concise as I’m here to show off the book rather than my own writing ability.
Thanks to Bookouture and NetGalley for the review copy in which I give my honest review.
