Description:

The truth was dead and buried…until now.

 

When a collection of human bones is unearthed during a routine archaeological dig, a Black Country field suddenly becomes a complex crime scene for Detective Kim Stone.

 

As the bones are sorted, it becomes clear that the grave contains more than one victim. The bodies hint at unimaginable horror, bearing the markings of bullet holes and animal traps.

 

Forced to work alongside Detective Travis, with whom she shares a troubled past, Kim begins to uncover a dark secretive relationship between the families who own the land in which the bodies were found.

 

But while Kim is immersed in one of the most complicated investigations she’s ever led, her team are caught up in a spate of sickening hate crimes. Kim is close to revealing the truth behind the murders, yet soon finds one of her own is in jeopardy – and the clock is ticking. Can she solve the case and save them from grave danger – before it’s too late?

 

An addictive, sinister crime thriller that will have readers on the edge of their seat.

 

 

My View:

Oh my! This book is dark, sinister, brutal and so, so thrilling!

 

I have been a fan of this series since the very first book, Angela Marsons does not disappoint.  I read book five, “Blood Lines” and did ponder where this series could possibly go next, I thought the author had resolved lots of the overarching plot threads and the series might be resolving.  How wrong was I?

 

This read is grim, possibly the darkest the series to date – and possibly one of the darkest books I have read this year – but it didn’t put me off. It gripped. It thrilled.  It made me heartsick. It moved. It made me think. WOW!  What’s next for Detective Kim Stone?

  1. This does sound like one of those books that goes to very dark places, Carol. It’s always interesting to see where a character takes an author, even if the ‘where’ is a dark, bleak place…
