Finally we’re playing a game. A game that I have chosen. I give one last push of the roundabout and stand back. 'You really should have played with me,’ I tell her again although I know she can no longer hear.
Late one summer evening, Detective Kim Stone arrives at Haden Hill Park to the scene of a horrific crime: a woman in her sixties tied to a swing with barbed wire and an X carved into the back of her neck.
The victim, Belinda Evans, was a retired college Professor of Child Psychology. As Kim and her team search her home, they find an overnight bag packed and begin to unravel a complex relationship between Belinda and her sister Veronica.
Then two more bodies are found bearing the same distinctive markings, and Kim knows she is on the hunt for a ritualistic serial killer. Linking the victims, Kim discovers they were involved in annual tournaments for gifted children and were on their way to the next event.
With DS Penn immersed in the murder case of a young man, Kim and her team are already stretched and up against one of the most ruthless killer’s they’ve ever encountered. The clues lie in investigating every child who attended the tournaments, dating back decades.
Faced with hundreds of potential leads and a bereaved sister who is refusing to talk, can Kim get inside the mind of a killer and stop another murder before it’s too late?
The addictive new crime thriller from multi-million copy, number one bestseller Angela Marsons explores the dark side of child prodigies and will have you absolutely hooked.
Well, well, well,… I think I'm running out of things to say about this series without repeating myself, but when a series is this good it just needs shouting about, so I don't care if I repeat myself. I said, I don't care if I repeat myself.
Book 11 and this series just gets better and better. It's difficult to keep a series fresh and enjoyable but Angie Marsons certainly manages it. A feeling of being back with friends is what you get when opening a book from this series and as always real life needs to go on hold while you start the book. It's not far in and you know you are going to just love the book.
Kim Stone has taken some time to get to know, and I feel she is a character that needs no explanation for fans of the series.
This book certainly grips you with it's opening. What a way to start! This book like others has a whole host of characters, some you'll love, some you won't. What I did like in this book what the introduction to a new team member, which I think was received into the team a lot better than the last new member.
Penn is off back to his old team, but don't worry it's only while there is a court case he is involved with. I think this also helped split the story and give us more of an insight into Penn the person.
Kim and the rest of her team are investigating a very brutal murder, just where the author get's her idea's from, I don't know, I'm just glad she has them. A woman is found in rather grim circumstances and it's down to Kim and her to team to try and get to bottom of what has happened. It all happens in true 'Stone fashion which is what makes these books so damn enjoyable.
Another great addition to the series, book 11 will like the previous 10 have you gripped from the opening pages and spit you out breathless at the very end.
Bravo Angie Marsons you've done it again.
