Publisher's Summary

A totally gripping and heart-stopping serial-killer thriller

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 schoolgirl. 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 multimillion number-one best seller Angela Marsons comes another absolutely nail-biting, edge-of-your-seat crime thriller.

Stretching Reality

I read the first 9 Kim Stone books in 3 weeks time. While book 8, about the private school culture, is my favorite, I find this book just too much. Too much what? Presenting Kim as an angry, out of control, rude and obnoxious bitch, instead of a professional police officer. The grieving for their downed colleague is over the top, disrupting and hard to read. While some in the series do get out of bounds and confusing in the change-over between cases, this one was like a bowl of spaghetti. At first, I thought each book was an improvement on the last, but now I'm not so sure. I will read #10 & 11 to find out.

Another winner!

Even though I just read it earlier this year, I re-read the previous book before starting this one. I’m glad I did. I highly recommend not reading this book if you haven’t read Book 8.

This takes place a few weeks after the events in the previous book and the team is dealing with the aftermath. We get to see the investigation of the multiple murders along with the police and the reader has no more clue than the detectives do. Well done.

As always, the team dynamics play a major part in these books. The characters are well developed and interesting. Even the new guy. And the narration is perfect.

I had this pre-ordered and I always look forward to starting a new Kim Stone book but, sadly, each one is over too soon and the wait for the next one begins.

Story is great; narrator, not so much

This series is very entertaining. Great plotting and great characters. The storytelling weaves throughout the other books in the series and it's very satisfying. It definitely deserves a better narrator. This narrator is too affected, uses strange and off tone emphasis, and just doesn't sound plausible. Her character voices are better than the straight narration, but that is so bad it's almost enough to make me want to just read the books instead of listen!

Love DI Stone

Book 9 of the series was more difficult to follow than others, but still a great story.

OMG May Be the Best One Yet!

I absolutely could not wait to start this book after finishing the last one and being so shocked at something that happened at the end of that one. No spoilers but what a wide range of emotions that this author makes the reader feel as they see these characters change and evolve. And of course the crimes are always so intriguing with something always happening to surprise and keep me in a state of suspense. I was actually brought to tears to see Kim experiencing an emotional crisis in the latter part of this book, even more so than the gut wrenching event from the last novel. I think my favorite part of these books is how you get just as involved in the characters and their relationships as you do the mystery that the team is working so hard to solve! HIGHLY RECOMMEND but please read in the order they were written!

What a relief to find Angela Marsens new book on audible's just released list. Her work is excellent - police procedural, tight, taut, intelligent,
with a few red herrings and surprise twists. Contenporary
British setting, no car chases, no bloody scenes.

Series keeps getting better and better

Excellent book in the Kim Stone series. Ending is especially good as you get some explanation into Kim's psyche.
