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.

Brilliant

I really like not liking Kim. She’s great. Would like to see her riding her bike abit more. And maybe one person actually getting close to her. But as ever, gripping story. Thank you. Can’t wait for the next one.

Angela Marsons has become another of my favourite authors

Another great story around DCI Kim Stone and her team. I started at number 1 book and now I shall be awaiting her next, she is a complex personality. This story has been brilliant I can usually suss out who the culprit is, but not this time and not with this author.

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.

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.

Another good one!

I love this whole series. I haven't found one book written by Angela Marsons that hasn't gripped me. This one was a bit emotional because of the tragic events in the previous book. That, in no way, took away from the gripping search for a killer. I can't wait for the next book!!!!

Welcome back Kim!

I didn’t know how much I missed Kim until I started listening to this book! One of the best female detectives out there! And Jan Cramer is outstanding! I can recognise who’s speaking before she even says it! My eyes teared up a few times! Can’t recommend the series enough!

best yet

Ok I cried at this book too. gripping, funny, passionate . My favorite character, all of them. especially Barney. I find myself groaning when Meets calls Kim, this is how great her books keeps you enthralled.

Absolutely not the best book of the series!

I think that Kim's narrative was just to dramatic and odious. She's always been a tough cookie, but her selfish attitude was just too much, this time.
