The Kim Stone series (book 12) ‘Killing Mind’ is another brilliant read. Angela Marsons seems to get the balance spot on every time. There is enough human interactions and issues relating to the police involved in the case to keep the books alive and interesting and this time infiltrating a ‘cult’ is cleverly portrayed. The cunning balance between entertainment and being informative hits just the right tone.
There is no doubt that having read the previous eleven books improves my enjoyment but this can easily be read as a stand-alone.
DI Kim Stone arrives at the apparent suicide of a young girl but she notices there are some discrepancies and starts to believe it is murder. When another body is found having similar food inside as the first victim the investigation leads to PC Tiffany Moore going undercover.
At the same time DS Bryant becomes involved in a rape/murder because the man he sent to prison for a similar offence has been paroled.
Much of the storyline is dark and depressing although well-handled and as usual the suspense continues throughout the novel. This series is excellent all the way through and I am already eagerly anticipating the next one.
Thank you to NetGalley, Bookouture, and Angela Marsons for the ARC in return for my honest review.
Brilliant, as always and highly recommended.
