  • Best Kim Stone book so far!!!

    I absolutely loved getting to spend more time with DI Kim Stone and her team! Killing Mind is book 12 in this series and although all of the books can easily be read as standalone, I would recommend reading them in order of publication. Silent Scream is the first in this series. If you enjoy that one, you’ll be set for awhile because every single book is phenomenal! That said, I loved the twists and turns in Killing Mind and as usual, Angela Marsons continues to be one of the very few authors who surprise me no matter how many of her books I read. The psychology of being brainwashed in a cult is fascinating and I really enjoyed the way she describes the grooming and indoctrination by a cult leader. I loved getting to see more of Tiffany (aka Tink) and learning more about her backstory. She’s a fascinating character. I really liked seeing a side case that Bryant was working on as well. I still feel the pain of a teammate lost several books ago, which is always a good sign that I’m vested in a series. I’m definitely giving Killing Mind a full 5 stars!

  • Just Brilliant!

    If all of the books in the D.I. Kim Stone series are this good then I need to read them all! Killing Mind is my fifth Angela Marsons novel and I couldn't put it down. The author continues her fabulous series with this intriguing instalment that explores the predatory, manipulative, and dangerous world of cults. Kim initially calls the death of 21 year old Samantha Brown as suicide, but closer examination has her rethinking it as murder. When a second body, Tyler Short aged 20 is discovered with the same MO, Kim and her team frantically scramble around looking for links and the killer. They both spent time at Unity Farm, a retreat for people seeking an alternative way of life, run by Jake Black. This is a well-plotted mystery of excellent quality. I love the author's characterisation of Kim who is acerbic, though relentless and determined as an investigator. Her colleagues were all well-drawn characters, and together they made an extremely effective team, and especially liked the contributions from the caring D. S. Austin Penn who is gradually becoming accepted as one of the team and Tink (Tiffany), to whom Kim gives an undercover assignment. This book worked well for me as a single read police procedural, but there is no doubt that reading the previous books provides further background into the characters. The dialogue between team members was pithy and witty and very pleasurable to read. Angela Marsons hones each and every one of her books with well-researched and timely topics, keeping the reader totally engaged throughout. The author's research on cults is evident in this tense and skilfully told story. As I expected, this is a hugely entertaining and polished addition to a series that has a huge number of crime fiction fans. The time I spent reading this brilliant novel was well worth it and I confidently recommend Killing Mind. I received a complimentary copy of this novel at my request from Bookouture via NetGalley and this review is my unbiased opinion.

  • Killing Mind

    Killing Mind by Angela Marsons is book 12 in the Detective Kim Stone Series (there is a prequel, First Blood) but is a stand alone story. I first read about Kim in book 2 (Evil Games) and turned around and immediately purchased book 1 (Silent Scream) and have read every one since then. I love this series and each book is like catching up with an old friend. I just wished Ms Marsons wrote a little faster as I'm already anxious for the net installment! I want to thank Net Galley and Bookouture for an early copy to review.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Kim is Back

    I am here to tell you that I love this series and I have been a fan from the first book. This book does a deep dive on cult culture and how a cult doesn’t look like one from the beginning. It was fascinating to see it and I love the research that Angela Marsons does in her books. A combination of facts and fiction. Also loved that we get to see a little bit more of Bryant and his POV. The dynamic between him and Kim is truly the best. Shoutout to one of my faves, Stacy, who I wish to see more in the coming stories. The mystery was not that enticing to me but I appreciated some of the new characters that were introduced and fingers crossed that we see more of them. The characters, all of them, are the ones that make me keep coming back. I cannot wait for more stories from all of them.

    Thanks for your feedback!
