Another superb read in the Kim Stone series. This is book 11 and I have read them all. Having said that this is easily a ‘stand alone’ read for those who have not yet found this series but once you start you will want to read the lot. Angela Marsons is able to produce yet another fast-paced, gripping and unusual read.
Kim and her team keep the story alive as all the characters are believable and have their own issues to deal with throughout. The main story, as the title suggests, revolves around childhood and child’s play and it includes a broad range of children’s issues, which continue through to adulthood. Kim, because of her own upbringing relates well to these problems, giving her an insight.
The parallel story involves, Penn, usually reporting to Kim, who is embroiled in a murder enquiry which, on the surface, appears cut and dried until the court case where holes start to appear sending Penn out to discover the truth.
I cant speak highly enough of this series and, as always, this is highly recommended.
Thank you to NetGalley, Bookouture, and Angela Marsons for the ARC in return for my honest review.
