Blood Lines (D.I. Kim Stone #5)Blood Lines by Angela Marsons

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A victim killed with a single, precise stab to the heart appears at first glance to be a robbery gone wrong. A caring, upstanding social worker lost to a senseless act of violence. But for Detective Kim Stone, something doesn’t add up. When a local drug addict is found murdered with an identical wound, Kim knows instinctively that she is dealing with the same killer. But with nothing to link the two victims except the cold, calculated nature of their death, this could be her most difficult case yet.
I tried really, really hard not to race through this book. Anticipation of the latest Angela Marsons release was high and I did hope DI Kim Stone wouldn’t let us down as I wanted to savour every minute of the read. And she didn’t let her readers down. In fact Ms Marsons played a double whammy by bringing back Dr Alex Thorne. What a coup! This brought such a chilling thread to the storyline.
As always Ms Marsons’ characters were believable, but not necessary likeable, with a story line that was rooted in reality. A page turning thriller, full of danger and suspense – it was so good I’m going to have to read it again, and again, and again!
