Evil Games - Angela Marsons

"When a rapist is found mutilated in a brutal attack, Detective Kim Stone and her team are called in to bring a swift resolution. But, as more vengeful killings come to light, it soon becomes clear that there is someone far more sinister at work. 

With the investigation quickly gathering momentum, Kim finds herself exposed to great danger and in the sights of a lethal individual undertaking their own twisted experiment. 

Up against a sociopath who seems to know her every weakness, for Detective Stone, each move she makes could be deadly. As the body count starts to mount, Kim will have to dig deeper than ever before to stop the killing. And this time - it’s personal. "

Angela Marsons has done it again! Evil Games is an absolutely cracking, five-star read - I devoured it in one sitting. Kim Stone has rapidly become one of my favourite ever detectives, and in this second novel in the DI Stone series she kicks ass more than ever, and I have, once again, been left panting in the corner in dire need of a cup of tea!

Pure evil is the name of the game in this book - I loved the fact that the "baddy" in this case is a woman, and Angela really shows how different evil carried out by men and women can be. Although you know who the perpetrator is throughout the novel, the way that her evil is uncovered leaves you wanting more and more. I loved the way Alex and Kim played psychological games with each other, each uncovering more and more layers of the other, before culminating in a tense, exhilarating finale. 

I CANNOT WAIT for the next book in this series - DI Kim Stone is a legend.

Evil Games is out on 29th May and you can get it here:
