How do you catch a killer who leaves no trace?

A victim killed with a single, precise stab to the heart appears at first glance to be a robbery gone wrong. A caring, upstanding social worker lost to a senseless act of violence. But for Detective Kim Stone, something doesn’t add up.

When a local drug addict is found murdered with an identical wound, Kim knows instinctively that she is dealing with the same killer. But with nothing to link the two victims except the cold, calculated nature of their death, this could be her most difficult case yet.

Desperate to catch the twisted individual, Kim’s focus on the case is threatened when she receives a chilling letter from Dr Alex Thorne, the sociopath who Kim put behind bars. And this time, Alex is determined to hit where it hurts most, bringing Kim face-to-face with the woman responsible for the death of Kim’s little brother – her own mother.

As the body count increases, Kim and her team unravel a web of dark secrets, bringing them closer to the killer. But one of their own could be in mortal danger. Only this time, Kim might not be strong enough to save them…

When there is a new Angela Marsons novel on the shelves, you know life is going to be on hold for a while.

In Drake Hall prison sits Dr Alexandra Thorne, a sociopath with a brilliant and murderous mind. She doesn’t want to sit in a cell with Cassie, her cellmate and quietly makes plans for her freedom.  She is an incredible lady and stops at nothing to get what she wants.

Walking home one evening Detective Kim Stone is attacked, set upon by a rapist who gives Kim a nasty whack and tells her it’s going to be ‘her lucky night’. But as fans of Stone know only to well, nothing is as it  seems, and after a celebratory takeaway for capturing another lowlife scumbag,  Kim and her close knit team are informed that the body of Deanna Brightman has been found. Deanna is the Deputy Director of Children’s Services and dedicated to her staff and her job.

In this the fifth Kim Stone novel, Kim comes face to face with her past.. but will this be the ultimate undoing for the compassionate and likable character we have come to know and love.

Sensationally and uncomfortably brutal, Blood Lines is a cat and mouse game of pure psychological thrills.

The body count is high but so are the stakes for Kim, and Marson’s famous Detective gives us readers a high adrenaline filled ride.

This novel is the BEST so far,  Marsons penned creativity has gone to depths that lesser scribes can only dream about.

It must be lonely in Marson’s world.. but only because she is in a class of her own..
