The greater the Evil, the more deadly the game…
When a rapist is found mutilated in a brutal attack, Detective Kim Stone and her team are called in to bring a swift resolution. But, as more vengeful killings come to light, it soon becomes clear that there is someone far more sinister at work.
With the investigation quickly gathering momentum, Kim finds herself exposed to great danger and in the sights of a lethal individual undertaking their own twisted experiment.
Up against a sociopath who seems to know her every weakness, for Detective Stone, each move she makes could be deadly. As the body count starts to mount, Kim will have to dig deeper than ever before to stop the killing. And this time – it’s personal.
The rising star of the British thriller scene returns with a novel that enthrall fans of Rachel Abbott, Val McDermid and Mark Billingham.
Watch out for more from D.I. Kim Stone
A Detective hiding dark secrets, Kim Stone will stop at nothing to protect the innocent. Evil Games is the second book in the series – see where it all began in SILENT SCREAM – out now.
Evil Games is the second in the D.I. Kim Stone series, the first in the series being Silent Scream.
Silent Scream is an amazing book and I have to admit that the author set the standard so high that I was slightly worried how good the second book would be. I was silly to worry though as Angela Marsons has managed to pull it off yet again.
Evil Games is a fabulously dark and chilling read.
This time Kim has her work cut out, not only is she investigating a crime involving a brutal attack on a rapist she also stumbles across a dangerous sociopath . Only problem is that no one believes Kim’s concerns and it soon becomes a battle to not only save other victims from this predator but also to save herself.
As with the authors first book I was hooked straight from the start and was totally gripped by the story. The author does a great job in drawing you in and not letting you go. Though Kim is a difficult woman with a lot of history, there is a certain softness to her which the reader sees with her relationship with Barney the dog she rescues.
I am a huge fan of D.I. Kim Stone and can’t recommend this series highly enough. Even though you could read Evil Games as a stand alone I think readers would benefit by reading Silent Scream first.
Well done Angela Marsons, you’ve done it again. Only problem is now I have to wait for the next one!
