Evil Games by Angela Marsons

Evil Games (D.I. Kim Stone #2)Evil Games by Angela Marsons
My rating: 5 of 5 stars



After reading Angela Marsons first book Silent Screams and being blown away by it, I have been watching this author from afar until her next book.

As with all follow on books, once an author writes a brilliant outstanding first book, you fear that the next one may not live up to all you need it to be [as a reader]

FEAR NOT!!! This is just as good. If not better in some ways [cannot believe I am saying that!]
Because as we follow on with cased of crimes with Kim Stone the DI, we get more of an insight to her, personally, but there is still lots to come me thinks!! Kim stone is a hard woman on the outside, but inside, I feel she is marshmallow but doesn't allow that to surface, at least, we get glimpses of it, but it doesn't stay for long.

She likes to get right to the core of a crime, she ties up all loose ends, and ends you never knew there were! Even putting herself out there......
Even knowing this could emotionally wreck her

We have many instances in this book, related crimes that you see being tied up with one woman. One manipulating woman.
This woman has the power to crush the DI Kim Stone, but does she?

Kim has never faced her past.

I see one step taken in this book and that's when she gets a dog. I see the tenderness that Kim has deep down and buried for people.

I've had the chance of looking into a sociopath and all that stands for.
This book is so finely tuned, its so well researched.

We have the girl who was raped.
We have the same girl who murdered her rapist.

We have the Mother of the rapist.
We have the Mother of the reformed rapist.

We have a girl who thinks that this world is so bad she should kill her baby for safety.

We have other events too. [not saying much more]

I was gobsmacked, amazed and dazed with the sociapath's manipulating of it all. It really made me think how plays on words can influence someone else, especially when in a vulnerable state.

Excellent.

I just can't wait for Angela's next move. I am so glad I am in contact with her. I'm her quiet stalker!!!


I want to thank Bookouture for my copy and the author for so much great entertainment in the last few hours whilst reading this super book<>




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.

What people are saying about the Number One Bestselling author Angela Marsons
'Stunning The Mail on Sunday

'I absolutely loved it! ... This one is one of the best crime thrillers I've read in a long time, and that includes mainstream authors such as James Patterson!' Fiona’s Book Reviews

’I don't think I've been so hooked by a new author since the discovery of Mark Edwards or Mark Billingham… if you finish a crime thriller feeling like you just need to have a lie-down and a cup of tea to get your breath back, then the writer has done their job. Angela Marsons, I still don't have my breath back.’ Reading Room with a View

‘Angela is already on my list of favourite female writers, she is up there with Rachel Abbott, Mel Sherratt … Leigh Russell and Karen Long.’Crime Book Club

I have not been so impressed by a debut novel in a long time, and I'm actually now itching for more …D.I. Kim Stone is like the British Jane Rizzoli. She's so ballsy and doesn't understand the meaning of the word no.’ Leah Loves

‘The only problem Angela now faces is keeping up this standard as the series progresses, but if she does than she's going to be an author to watch and a huge star within the genre.’ Book Addict Shaun

It's highly unusual for me to find a book that leads me to put my life on hold. But Angela Marson's Silent Scream has led me to virtually abandon work for the last day, even with deadlines looming’ Off the Shelf
