How do you catch a killer who leaves no trace?

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.

Desperate to catch the twisted individual, Kim's focus on the case is threatened when she receives a chilling letter from Dr Alex Thorne, the sociopath who Kim put behind bars. And this time, Alex is determined to hit where it hurts most, bringing Kim face-to-face with the woman responsible for the death of Kim's little brother - her own mother.

As the body count increases, Kim and her team unravel a web of dark secrets, bringing them closer to the killer. But one of their own could be in mortal danger. Only this time, Kim might not be strong enough to save them...

A totally gripping thriller that will have you hooked from the very first page to the final, dramatic twist.

What readers are saying about Blood Lines

'With no let up in pace, the author doesn't give you time to catch your breath before she hits you with another shocking twist. I can honestly say Blood Lines kept me guessing right up to the last nail biting chapter, don't you just love it when a book does that?' The Book Review Cafe (5*)

'this character is the best nemesis to any character since Hannibal Lecter tormented Clarice Starling ... the Detective Inspector Kim Stone books are nothing short of brilliant.' Nigel Adams Book Worm (5*)

'I love this series, and Angela Marsons has joined the ranks of authors I would drop anything else I was doing to read, and whose books I put on pre-order without even stopping to read the blurb.' Jen Med's Book Reviews (5*)

'Gripping ... so many twists and turns, as you try to fathom who is responsible for the murders; it's going to keep you guessing all the way through that's for sure! ... fast paced with plenty of psychological mind games that will leave you reeling.' Chapter In My Life (5*)

'It is a gripping, emotional and addictive read. My only concern is how the author is going to top this book as how can you improve on perfection itself? Outstanding!!!' By The Letter Book Reviews (5*)

MEDIA REVIEWS
DI Kim Stone is the most fascinating character to arrive on the scene since Val McDermid gave us Tony Hill.

I don't think I've been so hooked by a new author since the discovery of Mark Edwards or Mark Billingham . . . if you finish a crime thriller feeling like you just need to have a lie-down and a cup of tea to get your breath back, then the writer has done their job. Angela Marsons, I still don't have my breath back - Reading Room with a View

I'm a little bit speechless to be honest at just how incredible this book was... one of the best new crime authors of 2015, maybe even the decade - Book Addict Shaun

Angela Marsons is fast becoming THE one to watch in this genre and I would defy anyone not to read and enjoy her writing . . . She truly has a brilliant mind and this book did not disappoint . . . This story has everything, it is riveting, emotional, sad and most of all it has a depth that not many novels can claim to have . . . I highly recommend this one, simply brilliant - Postcard Reviews

A superb debut by an assured new writer. Blending sharp wit with emotion, I thoroughly enjoyed the ride alongside DI Kim Stone and look forward to the next outing.

“Blood Lines by Angela Marsons”

I chose to read and review a free eARC of Blood Lines but that has in no way influenced my review.

I’m ashamed to admit that the Detective Kim Stone series by the incredibly talented Angela Marsons is another crime... More
