When a rapist is found mutilated in a brutal attack, Detective Kim Stone and her team are called in to bring a swift resolution. But, as more vengeful killings come to light, it soon becomes clear that there is someone far more sinister at work.
With the investigation quickly gathering momentum, Kim finds herself exposed to great danger and in the sights of a lethal individual undertaking their own twisted experiment.
Up against a sociopath who seems to know her every weakness, for Detective Stone, each move she makes could be deadly. As the body count starts to mount, Kim will have to dig deeper than ever before to stop the killing. And this time – it’s personal.
This is book 2 about DI Kim Stone, and after reading Silent Scream and thoroughly enjoying it I knew I was in for another fabulous treat.
Angela Marsons is fast becoming THE one to watch in this genre and I would defy anyone not to read and enjoy her writing.
She truly has a brilliant mind and this book did not disappoint. The writing is truly magnificent.
It starts with an emotional subject – child abuse- (not a spoiler) and as usual DI Kim Stone handles it with the style and aplomb that only she knows how. The tale flows well and incorporates characters and personalities that is very real for the reader.
Alex is a character I liked, although she has a dark and sinister side to her. I enjoyed her manipulation and clever mind. we all love a good bitch.. Don’t we?? The way Angela has portrayed her is nigh on genius.
Like the facts of a DI Kim Stone case there is a lot of story in an Angela Marsons novel and you really do get value for money. This story has everything, it is riveting, emotional. sad and most of all it has a depth that not many novels can claim to have. Angela has managed to continue her second novel like she did with her first, she has not relented or sacrificed anything, the tale is as exciting and fresh and the continued story of DI Kim Stone is just simply divine. I highly recommend this one, Simply brilliant.
Oh and the reference to the corned beef….. now that she’s mentioned it
