She ruined their lives. Now they’re going to destroy hers.
‘Someone is recreating every traumatic point in your life. They are doing this to make you suffer, to make you hurt and the only possible end game can be death. Your death.’
On the fourth floor of Chaucer House, two teenagers are found chained to a radiator. The boy is dead but the girl is alive. For Detective Kim Stone every detail of the scene mirrors her own terrifying experience with her brother Mikey, when they lived in the same tower block thirty years ago.
When the bodies of a middle-aged couple are discovered in a burnt-out car, Kim can’t ignore the chilling similarity to the deaths of Erica and Keith – the only loving parents Kim had ever known.
Faced with a killer who is recreating traumatic events from her past, Kim must face the brutal truth that someone wants to hurt her in the worst way possible. Desperate to stay on the case, she is forced to work with profiler Alison Lowe who has been called in to observe and monitor Kim’s behaviour.
Kim has spent years catching dangerous criminals and protecting the innocent. But with a killer firmly fixed on destroying Kim, can she solve this complex case and save her own life or will she become the final victim?
The heart-stopping and totally addictive new crime thriller from multi-million copy number one bestseller Angela Marsons will have you completely hooked.

Thrilled to be taking part in this blog tour. Here are my thoughts.
Firstly, how have we ended up at book 10 all ready. Secondly for any Angela Marsons fans there is no need for me to go on any more, you know you want it, you know you will have pre ordered it a million years ago and we know you won't have time to be reading reviews that others have put up about the book.
For everyone one else, why are you not all ready a fan of this authors work?
Seriously, Once you get into this series there will be no stopping you. This is one of my all time favorite Detective series, I absolutely love the main character Kim Stone, I still don't know what it is that makes her so unique but she is, she's feisty, ballsy, no nonsense and just wants to get on with things. It's difficult to say what I mean without repeating what I have said over and over.
Kim, Bryant and Stacey still have the death of Kevin Dawson clear in their minds, he will always be missed. They seem to be getting used to newest member - DS Austin Penn, I think everything takes time and once they all finally realised he wasn't Dawson then things become easier.
The team are up against it this time around, certainly Kim who is trying her best to pretend the case they have been landed with has nothing to do with her personally, it's just a coincidence that some of the details resemble something in her past. But who the hell is she trying to kid? because if it's herself she's failing miserably.
When Kim realises that she is going to have to share some of her past with others it's a moment of weakness to her, It's something she has kept hidden from most for a long. long time and feeling she has to share her private thoughts is hard going. This case has got personal.
I know nearly everything i've said is just repeating myself from previous books, but honestly Angie Marsons must have decided long ago to hold back and throw some of the best of Kim Stone for these later books.
This series of books is phenomenal, and just get better each time. It's a wonder the readers are still here to review with the amount of times you hold your breath while reading. Total page turner.
Clear your diary, have a few days off and curl up with this bad boy.
This is a quote from the review of Book 9 in the series, I think all i need to say this time is 'it will hit the 2019 MUST READ LIST', my feelings are just the same.
‘I truly don't know what to say… Somehow Angela Marsons manages smash the brilliantness of the last book and better it tenfold… A first-class read that I feel will be difficult to top... This has certainly gone onto my 2018 MUST READ list.’
