Summary

Her stomach lurches as she sits in the windowless room. He throws her phone to the ground, grinds it against the floor with the heel of his shoe, and brings his face closer to hers. There was no turning back now; her life as she knew it was gone.

When Detective Kim Stone is called to a local business, what she sees leaves her speechless. The photo on the driving license bears little resemblance to the man laid out before her, and she knows she’s up against the most twisted killer she has ever encountered.

But as she breaks the devastating news to the victim’s wife, Diane Phipps, Kim can’t help feeling that something isn’t quite right about the woman’s reaction. 

Twenty-four hours later, Diane and the rest of the victim’s family disappears into thin air.

Then, a second body is found staked to the ground in a local nature reserve.

Desperate to crack the case open quickly, Kim and her team unravel a vital clue - a fiercely guarded secret that links both victims and could cost even more lives. 

A secret that some police officers are also protecting. 

Faced with deceit from those she should be able to trust, family members who won’t talk, and local reporter Tracy Frost opening a can of worms on the case of a woman murdered by her husband a year ago - Kim is in deep water like never before. 

Kim must find the motive if she is to find the killer who is systematically targeting his victims. But can she unlock the shocking truth and stop him before he strikes again?

An absolutely jaw-dropping crime thriller from the number one, multi-million-copy best-selling author of the incredibly addictive Detective Kim Stone series.

Fantastic as always.

I love this series so much. The characters really make it plausible. And the narrator is probably the best in the business. If you are going to read it. Stop. Start at book 1. You won't regret it

Love the story, don’t like the narrator!

I’ve enjoyed this series of books, but I can only just cope with the narrator. She manages to sound bored throughout the book and I’ve decided this is the last audio book by this narrator as I’d rather read the book - the characters struggle for me due to the narration.

Great series, ruined by the narrator

I've loved these books for years, but since switching to Audiobooks, this narrator has absolutely ruined them for me. She makes every single character unlikable. Super aggressive and fast dialogue that doesn't flow at all, and distracts from the story. I know Kim's a prickly character, but this narrator even makes Bryant and Penn, and all the story characters sound snarky and rude, when they're really not.

So disappointing,

Another great book

I couldn't wait for the next book in the series. I wasn't disappointed. Jan Cramer reads so well and makes it so enjoyable to listen to. Would definitely recommend.

Once Again A Wild Ride!

Well I knew this would happen! As soon as I allowed myself to start listening to the first paragraph, I was hooked and got nothing done for the whole day until I finished this latest chapter in Kim Stone and her amazing team! It’s always like getting back with good friends and I am led through every emotion from laughter at the banter among the coworkers to absolute goosebumps over the horrendous crimes they have to investigate! Of course the amazing narrator Jan Cramer brings the characters to life and is such a vital part of the experience! Thank you Angela Marsons for another spine tingling novel and please please hurry with the next one! BEST SERIES EVER😍💕😱

I couldn’t stop listening

I’ve read all of the DI Stone books in order but thought I would get the latest as an audio book. It’s unbelievably good with twists and turns that keep you on the edge of your seat. Thoroughly recommend it!!!

Love it! Love the Series!

I love how Angela Marsons builds and develops this group from book to book. They are a perfect mix of diverse people who know what they do best and do it. They will jump in wherever Kim needs them to solve a case. Bryant is the voice of reason who keeps Kim on the straight and narrow—most of the time. Stacey is one of my favorite characters. She is a smart, gifted researcher/computer wiz who often makes me laugh. Penn fits perfectly working with Stacey and in the field. Woody is rough on the outside, but a lovable boss who fights for his team.

Kim Stone is one of my all-time favorite characters. She is often brisk, and unfeeling, but she has some beautiful and caring moments that show her true heart. The support characters add so much life and depth to the stories; I love each one of them for different reasons. I enjoyed learning more about Tracy’s backstory and the like/hate relationship between her and Kim.

The murder investigation is brutal. The torture and murders are mind-boggling and sick. The murder scenes are difficult to read sometimes. If you know this series, you know Keats. The murders make Keats voice quiver, and other cops need to walk away. As sick as it is, I was riveted.

I love this series. In my opinion, Twisted Lies is one of the best. Even though this book works as a standalone, I don’t recommend reading out of order. The previous books have a lot of backstory that adds to the characters. However, if you are picking up this book, the primary focus is the case.

Jan Cramer has narrated this series from the beginning. She brings her insight, emotions, and love to the story. I enjoy listening to her.

If you love police procedurals this is a must read. If you love stories that keep you on the edge of your seat, this is the book for you. If you are reading this series, wow, what a great addition. If you are crazy about a good story, you must discover Kim Stone. You will not be sorry.

Non stop intrigue

I loved the flow of this book, the action and intrigue. Angela has out done herself. Trying to keep up with the action and moving parts was great. I cant wait for the next book.

Loved it!

I love the DI Kim Stone series and Twisted Lies did not disappoint. As always, the characters are fascinating and the plot was twisty and suspenseful. Highly recommended.
