They thought they were safe. They were wrong.
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 three 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.
I have been a massive fan of this author since I read her first book (Silent Scream) so when I saw that the seventh book in this fantastic series was being released I was desperate to get my hands on a copy and I read it as soon as it landed on my Kindle putting my current book on hold!!
It has the same brilliant writing style and great characters and interaction as the other books and after reading just the prologue I was hooked!! It is a brilliantly written book that is gritty and deals with tough subjects so well – Kim Stone really is a fantastic character!
The book is fine to read as a stand alone but if you do want to read the other books in the series (which I highly recommend as I have given them ALL five stars, read them in order as this book does touch on what happened in the previous one).
Another absolutely fantastic book from Angela Marsons – bring on the next one!!
