From the Back Cover:
A victim killed with a single, precise stab to the heart appears at first glance to be a robbery gone wrong. A caring mother and 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…
This was one of Lucie’s books for January as part of the #12booksin12months reading challenge.
I chose to read Blood Lines (which is the 5th book in the DI Kim Stone series) because I absolutely loved the first four books!
What did you like most about this book?
The best thing I like about the DI Kim Stones series is that it is the type of crime thriller book where you honestly can’t work out who did what until the last chapter.
Blood Lines didn’t disappoint in this sense. It had a great story line where Marsons brought a previous character back into the picture and added a bit of a twist happening in the background of the DI’s life.
Another great positive of the series is that Kim Stone is an incredibly likeable and personable character which makes the story easy reading.
Anything you didn’t like about this book?
I wouldn’t say I didn’t like anything specifically, I just feel that some of the previous books in the series are such amazing reads that this one doesn’t cut it as the best.
Anyone who loves a crime thriller, I urge you to read the Kim Stone series – they are the type of books which you gorge on and keep you reading well into the night!
