Another Angela Marsons brilliant read in the Kim Stone series (book 10 believe it or not) and, for me, ‘Dead Memories’ is the best so far. There is no doubt that having read the previous nine books improved my understanding and enjoyment but this can easily be read as a stand-alone.
Two teenagers are found handcuffed to a radiator on the fourth floor of the Chaucer House Building. The boy is dead and the girl is still alive which is almost a carbon copy of Kim and her brother some thirty years previous. Another ghastly murder follows which indicates without doubt that there is a killer imitating all of Kim’s worst events from her life.
However, the killer knows more than was revealed in the press and Kim and her team know that it is a race against time before the attack will be on Kim herself as the final deed.
As she fights to be allowed to stay on the case Kim has to work with Alison, a profiler, who is monitoring how Kim is coping with the events. I really warmed to Alison and enjoyed her comments and input.
Thank you to NetGalley, Bookouture, and Angela Marsons for the ARC in return for my honest review.
Brilliant, as always and highly recommended.
