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.

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!

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!!

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!

REAL RAW UNFORGETTABLE!!

I have read all the books in the series and this is by far the most complex and emotional! The author has managed to create characters that appear so real and genuine that I feel emotionally connected to each one. The series is not about the crimes but about the lives of DI Stone, her team, and colleagues as they solve each horrific case while trying to live normal lives.

Hair Raising

Great mystery and suspense. This writer makes the most unbelievable plot compelling. The narrator is uneven. She does adult voices well but I can't tell her child voices one from another. I recommend this diverting and scary listen if you want to get transported to a frightening but entertaining upper class hell hole for several hours.
