Publisher's Summary

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 best-selling author - you will be gripped until the final shocking twist.

Best novel in a wonderful police procedural series

As a fan of Angela Marsons' 5 star Detective Kim Stone series I am delighted with Book 8, DYING TRUTH. The gripping plot of this outstanding novel takes uncertainty and suspense up to 11 and keeps it there. IF you like police procedurals or modern detective novels this is one you need to purchase. Jan Cramer's narration is superb in every novel in the in the Detective Kim Stone series.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

Excellent!

Wow!!! Really wow! A true 5-star book.

I thought I had read the best of Angela Marsons but this latest one surpasses all previous books. Very intricate relationships at a boarding school. Murders (plural.) And even Alex returns to play a part. And she always scares me.

The end! All the feels. I'll say no more.

Excellent narration as usual. Reading this on release day just means it's longer until the next book. Write, Angela, write!

just gets better with time

Many authors get maudlin or put their main female character into so called romantic situations with inappropriate co workers undermining the integrity of the character. How refreshing to find an author who understands that a woman, who works their way up in a world dominated by men, has their head and heart focused on the right things! Thank you!

Heart Stopping Suspense

I have loved every single book in this series, but this one left me gasping! I love how each book refers back to the previous crime case from the last novel, in addition to learning more about the main characters on the detective‘s team. I definitely would never recommend anyone to start in the middle of this series as you need to start from the very first one to get the background on the characters, especially Kim Stone. No spoilers here but take it from me, you will not anticipate the conclusion of this book! Can’t wait to start on number 9. I don’t ever want this series to end!

So Sorry

I am so, so sorry that I gave the 7 previous books in the Kim Stone series a 5, should be a 4.9. This book is superior to all those before it and deserves a special callout. I purposely have read all 8 in the series - in order - within 3 weeks. Ms. Marson continues to perfect her craft and literary talent. I begin #9 in the series now. Thank you Angela.
