D I Kim Stone Book 7
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 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.
A gripping new crime thriller from the Number One bestseller – you will be hooked until the final jaw-dropping twist.
The short and the oh so sweet – if you are a fan of DI Kim Stone (and if you’re not you should be) this is without doubt the best in the series thus far. At book six I thought there was nowhere left for this author to write her character that hadn’t already been explored or plot line already wrapped up – I was wrong! This book is brilliant and has a deserving place on my Best of 2017 reads.
