Highly recommend reading the DI Kim Stone series, this one being one of the best. Now I have to wait for the next in the series to come out late February!!! The Author has a wonderful ability to write simply yet engrossingly (is there such a word - should be if there isn't) and draws the reader into her web of characters - some you would not otherwise have wanted to meet. She also builds her protagonists' characters so that they become so real - like another reviewer has commented, you almost expect to meet them on the street. Now, that is a gift. Keep writing so I can keep reading.
I have now read all 9 books in this series and enjoyed everyone of them.. Each book seems to get better than the previous one.. I have ordered the next book in the series and am looking forward to it.. DI Kim Stone is a certain breed of detective.. gets her teeth into a case and won't let go until it's solved, regardless .. her offsider Bryant is just as resilient and they make a great partnership.. This one had me completely baffled as to who the murderer was.. not the one I suspected.. great reading...
The book is about the family of those you work with. The loss of one of those is always hard. This book works through this issue while still giving you all the twists and turns of a great page turner. Loved the whole thing from start to finish. Angela has developed very believable and loveable characters who are intelligent, have strong convictions and who work like a well oiled machine ... all focused on the same outcome ... justice. Simply brilliant. Loved it...highly recommended.
When you open the latest Kim Stone by Angela Marsons. This time I actually guessed who the killer was, but in no way did that detract from the story. If I ever visit her part of the world I’m sure I will be looking for Kim Stone out walking Barney, that’s how real this lady makes her characters!
This is my favourite book in the series so far. Far to many reasons to list why, other than the characters have matured and Kim Stone's heart isn't made of ice! This storyline will keep you up late trying to work out who is behind the gruesome murders and the kidnapping of a 15 year-old girl.
I have read all of the Kim Stone books and they just keep getting better and better. Not only are the stories full of twists and turns that keep you guessing until the end, but also, with each book you get drawn more and more into the lives of the main characters. I can’t wait for the next Kim Stone thriller!
I didn’t think that Angela Marsons could possibly beat the past 8 Books in the Kim Stone series, but somehow she has in a way that still has me as interested as I was halfway through the first. Easily one of the best crime/thriller writers out there! Kim Stone is a character that is just wonderful to read about and her journey over the 9 books has been so wonderful to be a part of.
