  • A captivating tale!

    Stolen Ones by Angela Marsons is the 15th A Detective Kim Stone Crime Thriller. While you can read each book as a standalone, I recommend reading the series in order. It will allow you to understand the characters and what they have endured. I cannot believe this is the fifteenth tale. It seems like it was just last year that I discovered Silent Scream. Stolen Ones is different from the other novels in this series. In this case, the guilty party is known. He walks into the police station and asks to speak with Kim Stone. He claims to have information. We get to interact with the guilty party and discover the motive. It is about the psychology behind the person’s motives as well as analyzing body language, eye movements, etc. Kim and her team are also dealing with a missing little girl. To find her, Kim must play a sophisticated game of cat and mouse. Kim must modify her behavior if she is to find the missing girl and put the guilty party behind bars. Kim’s arch nemesis, Dr. Alex Thorne is bothering her once again despite being locked up behind bars. Alex has a plan, and she has spent time preparing it as well as obtaining what she needs to enact it. Alex has uncovered a secret that she knows Kim would like to learn. If Kim wants the information, she must do something for Alex in return. Stolen Ones is well written with developed, realistic characters. I have enjoyed getting to know Kim and her team. Kim is the focus of Stolen Ones. The team is present busily doing their work and we get small snippets of Barney as well. The author captures the setting of Halesowen. She provides good descriptions of the various areas without being overly detailed. I find the pace a little slower in the beginning with it picking up as the story progresses. The mystery was fascinating. I could feel Kim’s frustration in dealing with the bad guy. He will only speak with Kim, and he has done his research. Kim must alter her behavior and questioning style if she is to succeed. It depends on how many mysteries you have read on whether or not you see the plot twist coming. I wanted to let you know that there is a significant amount of foul language in the story. Stolen Ones is a compelling novel that will have you staying up late to see how it turns out. I am eager for the next Detective Kim Stone Crime Thriller. Stolen Ones is a captivating crime novel with a missing moppet, a cold case, a wily wrongdoer, a true-blue team, a slippery psychiatrist, and a dedicated detective inspector.

  • Stolen Ones

    Book number 15 in the Kim Stone series (Angela Marons) is Stolen Ones. In this story a little girl is missing from her daycare. As Kim and her team look into it they discover there has been a pattern for over 20 years of little girls disappearing, and they believe this child is the latest victim. They begin racing against the clock, hoping to find her alive. This is a stand alone story although things that happened in previous books are alluded to. I want to thank NetGalley and Bookouture for an early copy to review.

  • Spine Tingling Serial Killer Mystery

    Thank you once again to NetGalley and Bookouture for the opportunity to read the fifteenth instalment in the Detective Kim Stone series of thrillers. I cannot believe it's now 15 books in this series - and I've read and enjoyed every single one of them. Melody Jones went missing twenty-five years ago, and has never been found; and now another little girl has been taken - Grace Lennard. And Kim and her team - Bryant, Tracey, Penn and consultant Allison - must find her; but it means playing the twisted mind games of a very rich, influential man who actually comes to the station to give evidence! And speaking of twisted, Dr. Alexandra Thorne is about to be up for parole and wants Kim to help her achieve this - in return for some information about her childhood that she thinks Kim would do anything for. But will she? Of course, Alex has other irons in the fire and her twisted plans just might get her out. Meanwhile, in the search for the missing Grace, the team discovers a disturbing situation - other girls have gone missing in the years since Melody Jones, and some were returned some not. And then bodies begin turning up! The solution to these crimes may give Kim and her team (and the detective who still blames himself for not finding Melody) the answers they've all been looking for. I've said this before, and I'll no doubts say it again - this is one of the best of the series. Angela Marsons knows her characters inside out and she knows just how to wring the most suspense out of the story. Highly recommended, but you really should read the other books to truly understand.

  • How have I not discovered Angela Marsons before?!

    Angela Marsons sets her books in the Black Country, a part of the West Midlands in the UK, and so-called because of the black soot that emanated from the ironworking foundries and forges in the nineteenth century. My Grandad came from the Black Country and I can’t believe I have only discovered Angela’s books now. This is number 15 in the Kim Stone series and although I haven’t read any of the others, I was assured by the person who introduced me to them that I could read this as a stand-alone, but that I absolutely must go back and read the others! Stolen Ones has so many twists and turns, that I couldn’t keep up, and the ending just blew me away. I guarantee that you won’t see it coming! I was hooked from the start and I couldn’t turn those pages fast enough. Never having experienced any of these characters before, I guess I didn’t know what to expect. Some annoyed me, some I sympathised with and others I just wanted to punch in the face - well done to Angela here because I guess this was her aim! I now need to find the time to go back and start at the very beginning of the Kim Stone series and I recommend this book to anyone who loves a good, meaty crime thriller. Oh and if there are any TV producers reading this, the Kim Stone series would make an awesome television production! Thank you to NetGalley and Bookouture for the opportunity to read and review an ARC of Stolen Ones by Angela Marsons.

  • A top-notch thrill fest.

    Watch out Halesowen the fabulous, ballsy, blunt D.I. Kim Stone is back!!!! Angela Marsons has once again delivered a top-notch thrill fest that had me devouring this story long into the night. And with Bryants humour, wonderful characters, impressive detail and a perfectly plotted storyline involving the disappearance of Melody Jones 25 years ago, the current abduction of Grace Leonards and the appearance of philantrophic Stephen Harte who claims to have knowledge of both. I was completely fascinated and this is possibly the best Kim Stone book I've read yet, even with the addition once again of the irritating Dr Alex Thorne. Would definitely recommend.

    Thanks for your feedback!
