Broken Bones by Angela Marsons

Broken Bones (D.I. Kim Stone, #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 three more sex workers in the Black Country 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 at first looks like a tragic abandonment soon takes an even more sinister turn.

When another young woman goes missing, the two investigations bring the team into a terrifying, hidden world, and a showdown puts Kim’s life at risk as secrets from as secrets from her own past come to light.

As Kim battles her own demons, can she stop the killer, before another life is lost?

A gripping new crime thriller from the Number One bestseller – you will be hooked until the final jaw-dropping twist.


My Review

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love the Kim Stone series. I purchased this on pre-order as soon as it became available and have been waiting for a space to read it. I didn’t expect it to disappoint and it didn’t. Well worth the 5 stars.

Young girls are going missing and turn up as dead prostitutes and what has an abandoned baby got to do with it? This is a complex case or cases and it is down to Kim to connect all the dots. There are many who believe prostitute’s don’t matter but that doesn’t apply to Kim Stone and her team. Kim is always ready to fight a corner for the underdog and this is no different. Despite the fact that skeletons from Kim’s past are being dragged out into the open all that has to be put aside to bring down the pimps and abusers in this case.

This book sees the return of some characters from previous books as we learn more about them and the team. I was very pleased to learn more about Dawson and his hidden character. A very thoughtful conscientious young man who puts his own relationship at risk to do what he feels is right. I also liked to see Stacey getting over her issues and making steps back to normal. I love the diverse mix of characters in this series.

There are many twists and turns as the team try to connect the dots. A lot of different issues come to the front in this book with people trafficking, abuse and corruption all playing an important role. there are many strands and false leads that lead towards a jaw dropping ending but it doesn’t end there there is even more to offer from this brilliant book.

It can be read as stand alone but I really recommend reading these books in sequence as people and events from previous books reappear in places and it may marr the enjoyment to not have the background.

Definitely a gripping, unputdownable 5 star read and I can’t wait for book 8.
