  • Amazing book!

    Wow, what can I say. This book is really awesome and I loved it very much! The start of the book started off slow for me, but once it got going, I really enjoyed it and I was very excited to find out who the killer was. I thought I had it worked out before the big reveal near the end, but I was surprised to find out that the killer wasn't who I thought it was. I love it when this happens, just as much as I love it when I have worked out who the killer is. It is so exciting. I really enjoyed the psychology in the book, which focused on sibling rivalry and graphology. I love learning new things, so this was right up my street. I found it very interesting. I loved the characters in the book, good and bad, and Angela Marsons, who is one of my favourite authors, described them all so wonderfully that I felt like I was in the book living inside the story with them all. I love Kim, Bryant, Alison, Stacey and Penn and they felt like a big family to me, which I felt a part of. I love the way that Angela makes the characters and the story feel real. I would love to see Angela's books as a TV series. She is so good at showing the characters different emotions and I especially loved the story between Penn and his brother, which was heartbreaking and heartwarming at the same time. A whole range of emotions is shown throughout the book from different characters and I love how Angela can make me feel these emotions too. I shed a few tears when reading about Penn and his brother, for example. I also love how at the end of each book, Angela ties up all the loose ends and shows us a separate chapter for each character. It helps to complete the book and put things to rest, much like the satisfaction we feel after we have eaten a dinner, pudding and had a big drink. However, this time, in this book, there was a small cliffhanger at the end, where I was excited to see what happened next with Stacey. I will just have to wait until the next book to find out how she reacts to the news! I highly recommend this fantastic book and I look forward to reading more from Angela in the future!

  • Fantastic book!

    Wow! ‘Deadly Cry’ is a nail-biting instalment in the Kim Stone series and I loved it. There’s a murderer to catch, a puzzle to solve and a missing child, and that’s just the start. The story later crashes into a shocking denouement that left me open mouthed. I was like... what? No... Ooh... (no spoilers)! I love Stacey’s character and I really enjoyed the chapters where she was investigating the historic rape cases. The team dynamics are brilliant and make for an absolutely addictive read, especially during the tense moments and boy were there some to remember. ‘Deadly Cry’ had them in abundance. The handwriting expert chapters were fascinating and I love how well researched they were. I gained a lot of insight into what happens in that profession so I learned something new - bonus. This book is cleverly plotted, fast moving and a stunning piece of detective fiction. It had me guessing at the why and who throughout and DI Kim Stone is a legend. As a side comment, I love the chapter in which she purchases the bike frame - very witty. If you love a twisty police procedural that once it’s sucked you in, you can’t put it down, then this is your book. Another fantastic addition to Angela Marsons’ series and definitely not one to be missed!

  • Deadly Cry

    Deadly Cry is the 13th book in the Kim Stone series by Angela Marsons. I came to this series a little late with Book 2 ( Evil Games). I enjoyed it so much I immediately bought book 1 (Silent Scream). I've read every one since then. Each book is like visiting with friends and although I enjoyed the story I hate to see it end as I'm impatient for the next installment! This is a stand alone story if you haven't read any previously. I want to thank NetGalley and Bookouture for an early copy to review.

  • new book in fave series

    The books in this series never disappoint and while there is a running story from book to book, you are never lost if you’ve forgotten a detail or haven’t read the previous book(s). In this installment Kim and her team are tasked with solving the brutal murder of a mother. When a second murder happens just days later and her son is missing, it is all hands on deck. All this happening while one team member works on tracking down new clues in a cold case, another adjusts to new responsibilities from his mother’s death, and a task force preparing security for a model in the headlines for sleeping with a footballer. While that might seem like a lot of story for just one book, Marsons weaves the story together well. And the small details of the team’s personal life are a nice touch. Kim’s dog and Penn’s brother. No one does their job in a bubble and have outside factors that don’t go away. Detective Kim Stone and her team are a well oiled machine that complement each other as they work together. They remind me of a good TV ensemble where the whole exceeds the parts. And the parts aren’t shabby. I can’t believe these books aren’t more popular in the US because they are the perfect mesh of character development and crime story. I’ve just finished this one and can’t wait for the next one. If you’ve never read one of Marsons’ Kim Stone books, I highly recommend you pick this one up and start reading.

  • Great Book, Great Series

    4.5 stars Deadly Cry by Angela Marsons is the 13th in the Detective Kim Stone series. Note that this was originally to be titled Death Score. First, let me thank NetGalley, the publisher Bookouture, and of course the author, for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. Series Background: (Warning – May contain spoilers from previous books) Detective Kim Stone is tough. She has had to be. Her mother is responsible for Kim’s horrendous childhood, and as a result, currently resides in a psychiatric facility. But Kim has survived, and although her social skills are lacking, her heart is in the right place. Right now, her team consists of: Bryant, her right hand man, and the person who voices her concerns in a much more diplomatic way than Kim would every think of; Stacey, who can find required information in a seemingly bottomless computer system; and the newest member, Austen Penn, who replaced Kevin Dawson who was killed in the line of duty.  My Synopsis:   (No major reveals, but if concerned, skip to My Opinions) A little girl is found in a shopping mall, no sign of her mother.   A few hours later, the mother is found in an abandoned building, her neck broken.   When another victim appears, and her child is missing, Kim will do anything to find the little boy.  As the bodies pile up, the killer sends Kim messages, asking to be stopped.   In addition to the above-mentioned case, Stacey is also working a cold case from another precinct, in the hope that fresh eyes may help them catch a rapist.  Unfortunately, one of the  victims would never make a good witness, so her attacker has gone unpunished for her rape. Austen is back at work after burying his mother.  Most people feel it is too soon, but he refuses to be side-lined.  He has to be strong for his brother.  Jasper, who has Downs Syndrome, is trying to be strong for his brother too.  This is not working. Meanwhile, a celebrity "has-been"  is having a book signing for her new book detailing her scandalous affair.  Kim is part of a team which is responsible for her safety.  Kim is not impressed. My Opinions:   Again, I hate the covers for these books, and again, have deducted 1/2 of a star for this.  They look like a cover out of a 30's spy novel. I like how Marsons brings back characters from other books to participate in the plot.  Last book it was Tiffany, this time it is Allison.  The characters and their interactions are one of my favorite aspects of these books.  I also liked how much Stacey has grown in her role. The plot, as always was captivating, and the short chapters kept me turning the pages.  The suspense continued to build, and I admit to being in the total dark as to the identity of the killer.  I loved it!  The book looked into siblings who are over-protective of the other, as well sibling rivalry, and what would happen if that rivalry continued in adult-hood.   I love the relationship between Penn and Jasper.
