Eeeny meeny, miney, moe. Who lives, who dies only I know.
When the body of a doctor is discovered brutally murdered in local woodland, Detective Kim Stone is shocked to discover the victim is Gordon Cordell – a man linked to a previous case she worked on involving the death of a young school girl. Gordon has a chequered past, but who would want him dead?
As the investigation gets underway, Gordon’s son is involved in a horrific car crash which leaves him fighting for his life. Kim's sure this was no accident.
Then the body of a woman is found dead in suspicious circumstances and Kim makes a disturbing link between the victims and Russells Hall Hospital. The same hospital where Gordon worked.
With Kim and her team still grieving the loss of one of their own, they’re at their weakest and facing one of the most dangerous serial killers they’ve ever encountered. Everything is on the line. Can Kim keep her squad together and find the killer before he claims his next victim?
The killer is picking off his victims at a terrifying pace, and he’s not finished yet.
From multi-million copy number one bestseller Angela Marsons comes another absolutely nail-biting, edge-of-your-seat crime thriller.
Can you actually believe that we are here at Kim Stone book 9. Now before I waffle on about what I thought of this book, I need to tell you I am a huge fan of this series, and I believe if you decide to read these books they really are best if read in order.
Now for me this is an easy 5 star read. Kim is back in action, she might have a bit of a dodgy leg, which is still healing from injuries after what happened in the last book, and she's been advised to take things easy, which is not something Kim understands, she never has. Also missing a team member which is not only having an impact on Kim but the others around her also.
Faced with investigating the Death of a Doctor, one that Kim and her team certainly know, it's now time to put herself and her team into work mode. Her team have a new member, DC Penn. It's time to figure out if this new team can cut it, if they can learn to work together and be the best the force needs.
I think the character of Kim Stone has been amazing through the last 8 books and felt we were really getting to know her, however in this instalment I found I was learning a hell of a lot more about her through her counselling sessions with Ted. You really do begin to believe that Kim Stone is someone you know on a personal level. As much as I love her, there are times when I could happily tell her That she's out of order. That said I wouldn't change here at all.
There are and have been some amazing characters through this series, and some we love, some we hate, which if an author manages to engage a reader so much that they actually have real opinions on the characters then that is certainly a job well done. Angie certainly knows how to draw in the reader.
There is so much I want to say about this story that I know I would end up giving to much away. I think the sales and reviews for these books speak for themselves. If you love a damn good crime series that is one of the best out there, then this is the series for you. Anyone who has read the previous books will have had this one pre order, will have been counting down the days until this book was released. They will then devour it in probably a matter of hours, and wish that they had taken there time, because then you have to wait for the next one.
This book is certainly an amazing roller coaster of a ride, Angie Marsons is managing somehow to just blow each book out the water, for me personally I think each one tops the last one, and at the end of each one, I've said to myself 'no way can this one be beat' and each time I'm loving the fact, I'm proved wrong. I know I've said it before, but Angie I don't know how you do it, but please keep doing it. Us readers need Kim Stone in our lives. This is one of those books that you really need to clear your diary for. Get comfortable and get stuck in, but make sure you have no other plans, because this book will take over.
