#BookReview for Twisted Lies by Angela Marsons #TwistedLies #DIKimStone @WriteAngie @bookouture

Her stomach lurches as she sits in the windowless room. He throws her phone to the ground, grinds it against the floor with the heel of his shoe and brings his face closer to hers. There was no turning back now, her life as she knew it was gone.

When the lifeless body of a man is found on an industrial estate, Detective Kim Stone arrives on the scene and discovers he’s been tortured in the worst way imaginable.

But as she breaks the devastating news to the victim’s wife, Diane Phipps, Kim can’t help feeling that something isn’t quite right about the woman’s reaction.

Twenty-four hours later, the victim’s family disappears into thin air.

Then a second body is found staked to the ground in a local nature reserve.

Desperate to crack the case open quickly, Kim and her team unravel a vital clue – a fiercely guarded secret that links both victims and could cost even more lives.

A secret that some police officers are also protecting.

Faced with deceit from those she should be able to trust, family members who won’t talk, and local reporter, Tracy Frost, opening a can of worms on the case of a woman murdered by her husband a year ago – Kim is in deep water like never before.

Kim must find the motive if she is to find the killer who is systematically targeting and torturing his victims. But can she unlock the shocking truth and stop him before he strikes again?


I love this series and I have to say that I think that this was quite possibly my favourite of the series so far – the book was one that I really did not want to put down!

The plot for this one was dark, gritty and intense and it was one that really had DI Stone questioning the motives and the whole thing drew me in. It was a little gruesome but it was in keeping with the plot and it wasn’t done for sensationalism. I liked the characterisation and I did feel for the characters involved as well as Stone’s team.

I read the book over two evenings but if I hadn’t had work and been in Court for that I can honestly say that I would have carried on reading in to the early hours.

The book is superb, I love Angela Marsons books with a huge passion, the series gets better and better and as soon as I finish the latest release I want to get my hands on the next time and time again. I love that there is variety and the plots don’t repeat themselves. There are underlying themes and recurring characters but you can pick up a book knowing you will get a fantastic intense read that will leave you reeling, and ultimately wanting more.

It is 5 stars from me for this one, it was well developed, well written and a completely addictive read – very highly recommended and I am on to the next book in the series already – love them!!
