I totally loved this fourth book in the DI Kim Stone crime thriller series, where Kim and her team once again find a gruesome case of murders to solve. This time a visit to a body farm ends up revealing more than they expected as Kim finds a body that should not be there.
Just as they begin to gather clues about the dead woman another body is found, but this woman was murdered years ago. The ritual killing of these women takes Kim on a journey she’s familiar with and leads to a ruthless killer.
Just when I thought crime thrillers were getting a bit too predictable and old hat, another DI Kim Stone book comes along. I enjoy reading this series because I think there’s a lot more to find out about Kim’s past, of which we are given a few glimpses in each book. There’s also much Kim needs to do to allow other people in to help her and if she ever will is also compulsive reading.
With such a gripping protagonist to begin with the cases she follows only heighten my pleasure of reading when a new DI Kim Stone book comes along. Like the others, this book can be read as a stand alone but in my experience it’s definitely more entertaining and it makes better sense to read all four books in order.
Another gripping crime thriller from one of my favourite authors and this one will keep you up at night turning pages. This book is due for release tomorrow, 20 May 2016.
