Two girls go missing. Only one will return.
The couple that offers the highest amount will see their daughter again. The losing couple will not. Make no mistake. One child will die.
When nine-year-old best friends Charlie and Amy disappear, two families are plunged into a living nightmare. A text message confirms the unthinkable; that the girls are the victims of a terrifying kidnapping.
And when a second text message pits the two families against each other for the life of their children, the clock starts ticking for D.I. Kim Stone and the squad.
Seemingly outwitted at every turn, as they uncover a trail of bodies, Stone realises that these ruthless killers might be the most deadly she has ever faced. And that their chances of bringing the girls home alive, are getting smaller by the hour…
Untangling a dark web of secrets from the families’ past might hold the key to solving this case. But can Kim stay alive long enough to do so? Or will someone’s child pay the ultimate price?
Emily Billinghams plight is tragic, she wants her mummy. Thus starts the thrilling awaited novel by Angela Marsons.
Ninja riding DI Kim Stone is running against time to catch the abductor of two little girls, and reporter Tracy Frost is getting in the way, Kim blames Tracy for the recent gang related killing of Dewain Wright.
Kim Stone is a confliction of opposites, she is hard but has a soft side, she is tough but she cares. In this character alone Angela Marsons has an amazing person in her hands.
I absolutely loved Tracy Frost, and as it happens saw a lot of myself in her. 🙂 She is a ballsy newspaper reporter who goes after what she sees as a newsworthy story and Kim doesn’t like her much.

There is an OMG moment with Suzies mother Jenny, and you can’t help but feel her pain. She really is quite a unfortunate lady.
Lost Girls is edgy, unsettling, thrilling and simply quite brilliant. It made me scream, sweat and hold my breath, the intensity is just – well – intense.
Marsons mind for this genre is the best. She creates characters from both sides of the track, they are all likable, hated, clever and just believable.
Get lost in a Marsons novel and you emerge feeling as if you are involved. All of a sudden the reader blinks and realises its just a story. This to me is the sign of a good writer and Angela Marsons has it by the bucketful.
Full of twists and turns if i could mark this book by squeals it would be a screamer.. however its a
