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.

Awful narration

Sorry, but this is the first book I've been unable to finish. I listened to 4 chapters and had to give up. I found I was more aware of the narrator reading with the wong expression, which she had to keep changing, than I was with the actual story. I have it on my kindle too so plan to read the book itself. I love audible but a bad narration can ruin an author's hard work!

Shocked!

I really like these Kim Stone books and number 8 was good but some of the others have been better! Hence the 4 stars. I don't want to spoil it for anyone but there is a major shock at the end I wasn't prepared for! I hope we will see another book in this series and this wasn't the last!

Wow

This as got to be in my mind the best in the series.Dying truth by Angela Marsons it is about the privileged children of our society who think they are all above the law and the little insignificant club they must be a part of but stay with the story because there is more to it I won't say no more than that it is down to the interview reader to come up with their own conclusions but what I will say is the end had me crying

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!

Gripping but needs edit

Dying Truth tells a riveting story, keeping the reader engaged throughout. Melodramatic prose mars the book somewhat, however, and the writing overall needs a good edit.

D.I. Kim Stone is back and amazing as ever!

Book 8, Dying Truth, by Angela Marsons, is AMAZING!
I have listened to all of the D.I. Kim Stone's novels and they are among my favorites, but I must say that this one is at the top!
I laughed. I cringed. I cried. It was full of emotions! Left me wanting for book 9. NOW!

Great Book!

I really enjoyed this book and the audio performance. The ending was sad on all accounts and I think I’ve said Oh, no! out loud more than once. Great job!
