The murder of a young prostitute and a baby found abandoned on the same winter night signals the start of a disturbing investigation for Detective Kim Stone – one which brings her face to face with someone from her own horrific childhood.
As more sex workers are murdered in quick succession, each death more violent than the last, Kim and her team realise that the initial killing was no one-off frenzied attack, but a twisted serial killer preying on the vulnerable.
At the same time, the search begins for the desperate woman who left her newborn baby at the station – but what looks like a tragic abandonment turns even more sinister when a case of modern slavery is uncovered.
The two investigations bring the team into a terrifying world of human exploitation and cruelty – and a showdown that puts Kim’s life at risk as shocking secrets from her own past come to light.
A gripping new crime thriller from the Number One bestseller – you will be hooked until the final jaw-dropping twist.

I just can't believe we are at book 7. I have loved each and everyone of these books, and I think any crime thriller fan will love the series. I always say this is a personal opinion but I think the books are so much better read in order.
So just think now, you have not read any of these. You now have the chance to read 7 awesome books back to back. I sometime wish I could erase a good series from my head, so that I could start again and read them all back to back.
So anyways,... Book 7 and Kim and her team a faced with more gruesomeness.
This story starts off with an abandoned baby outside the police station which of course it's Kim her very non maternal self that finds the baby. This soon turns into a hunt for finding the child's mother. Along side this we have murdered prostitutes. And Kim and her team as usual are working flat out.
I really don't know how Angela does it, but yet again this book is my favourite to date. Each book somehow out does the last one. I didn't think this series could get any better but it certainly does. I for one can not wait to read more. and more, and more.
I love the character that is Kim Stone, she's just been written perfectly. I have to say this book felt more like getting to know the whole team better. A brilliant set of characters put together.
Angela Marsons has now become of those authors whose books you don't need to read the blub, you know you want to read it because of the author. This book certainly deserves more than the given 5 stars. This book certainly hit's the ground running and doesn't stop. What? OMG? NO? just a few of the words falling out my mouth while reading it.
I can't praise this book or this author enough. Nail biting, thrilling, twisty, and a damn good read to boot.
