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.

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.

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.

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.

Disappointing

This was my least favorites of the series. This is one of my favorite series but this book was boring. I had to force myself to finish because I didn’t care about the story.

Love the Kim Stone series

I love these books by Angela Marsons. Her characters are so interesting and I love their interactions and personal and professional involvement with each other. Jan Cramer is the perfect narrator and I love listening to her. I've read all 9 books in this series and can't wait for No. 10.

Fantastic!

The journey continues without missing a beat. Thrilling adventure that just kept the pages turning with twist and turns around every corner and more insight into the characters psyche. Cannot wait for the next installment.
