I am super excited to share my review with you today on the last day of blog tour for Stolen Ones by Angela Marsons
25 years ago he took a girl. Today he takes another.
One August afternoon, eight-year-old Grace Lennard skips into the garden of the childcare centre she attends and vanishes into thin air. Rushing to the scene of Grace’s disappearance, Detective Kim Stone finds a chilling piece of evidence: the engraved heart bracelet belonging to Melody Jones – the little girl who was taken from a playground exactly twenty-five years ago.
Hours before, Steven Harte had walked into Halesowen police station and confessed to having information that would lead Kim to Melody. And he told Kim she’d have a more urgent problem to deal with first. Now Kim must play Steven’s twisted game if she’s to find Grace alive.
With only twenty-four hours to make every second of Steven’s interrogation count, and scan his behaviour for hidden clues, Kim and her team soon link Steven to the abduction of several vulnerable girls – two were kept for a year and then released, unharmed – but where are Melody and the others?
Then small bones are discovered in the grounds of a local park, and Kim fears the worst.
Kim may think she’s close to convicting a killer, but the case is about to get even more complex. Steven is hiding one final explosive truth and he’s not the only one. Dr Alex Thorne – the evil woman Kim did her best to keep behind bars is about to reveal a shocking secret to Kim that will hit her where it hurts the most. Kim knows she must put aside her own demons to save Grace and find the other missing girls in time. But can Kim untangle Steven’s web before any more innocent lives are lost?
An edge-of-your-seat thriller that will leave your heart in your mouth. You will be totally hooked on the utterly addictive, number one, multi-million-copy bestselling Detective Kim Stone series.
OMG…..What a book!
I can’t believe this is book number 15…..How the hell did that happen, it doesn’t seem 5 minutes ago since I started reading this series. When in actual fact it was 6 years ago. I was first drawn to this series because it is set in the Black Country, which is where I live. And now each book I read is like catching up with old friends. I simply love the Kim Stone series.
In this book with catch up with old and new characters and there is even a couple I personally know. I loved that Alex is in this story and we find out more about Kim’s past.
But what I love is that this series never gets old and Marsons story telling just gets better and better each book she writes. Stolen Ones had me hooked from the very first page and I couldn’t read it fast enough to find out what was going to happen next. It is a truly awesome read.
Once again Marsons has totally smashed it and this book will certainly keep you guessing until the end with a brilliant twisty plot. You guys are in for a treat.
I cannot recommend it enough giving it all the stars.
Massive thank you to Kim Nash at Bookouture for inviting me to take part in this epic tour.
