How far would you go to protect your darkest secrets?
When teenager Sadie Winter jumps from the roof of her school, her death is ruled as suicide – a final devastating act from a troubled girl. But then the broken body of a young boy is discovered at the same school and it’s clear to Detective Kim Stone that these deaths are not tragic accidents.
As Kim and her team begin to unravel a dark web of secrets, one of the teachers could hold the key to the truth. Yet just as she is about to break her silence, she is found dead.
With more children’s lives at risk, Kim has to consider the unthinkable - whether a fellow pupil could be responsible for the murders. Investigating the psychology of children that kill brings the detective into contact with her former adversary, Dr Alex Thorne – the sociopath who has made it her life’s work to destroy Kim.
Desperate to catch the killer, Kim finds a link between the recent murders and an initiation prank that happened at the school decades earlier. But saving these innocent lives comes at a cost – and one of Kim’s own might pay the ultimate price.
Guess what ?!?
Today is the Publication Day of Kim Stone #8 ! YEESSSS!
Dying Truth is very much alive today!!!
There is a reason why I absolutely adore Angela Marsons’ books! With every book next in the row, she is getting better and better! And for the very first time, she made me cry! Yes, I was crying over a thriller! Not very beautiful picture when you have to show up at Anastacia’s concert with eyes red of crying over a book. And every time when I finish another one of Kim Stone series my jaw is down to the floor! I absolutely adore Kim Stone as a main character, I love her team, I even love Dr. Alex Thorne. But mostly, I love the most trilling plots and different subjects that the author creates, tough cases that make me turn the pages faster and faster!
So, here are my thoughts for D.I.Kim Stone #8 in the series. Enjoy!
Sadie Winters is a teenager who loses her life by jumping from the roof at her school. While the school tries to label the case as “an accident”, D.I.Kim Stone has a different opinion. Something about the position of the fallen body doesn’t feel right. Then another child at the same school dies from peanut allergy. Nothing suspicious, except that there are whole peanuts in his throat. Another case marked by the school as “an accident”.
Kim Stone and her team are investigating the school. A private school for the rich kids from wealthy families, whose family image for the public means more then everything. A school that needs money and rich people ready to pay whatever it takes just to be seen as the top of the society. The investigation discovers secret clubs and societies, bulling and tormenting the kids who are somehow different, unsolved mysteries that origin from many years ago.
Who is behind all those suspicious deaths? Can another child do such a harm? Can a child be evil? Is it possible that there is more behind then an innocent prank that went wrong?
I won’t reveal more, for the sake of the book. There are no words that I haven’t said before. The evil in children is such an intriguing subject for a book plot. And for the very first time I was crying over a thriller! It never happened to me before! I loved the book! I adored the book! It seems that this lady (Mrs. Marsons) can not be stopped! Her writing is getting better and better with every next book in the row! It is not just the mystery and murder part, it’s whole emotion part that surrounds the story. There are parts of the personal lives of Kim and her team, there are early childhood flashbacks, there is the balance between the good and the bad with the return of Dr. Alex Thorne. With one word, there is everything! A perfect read that will leave you with no sleep all night until you finish it and then you’ll find yourself shedding a little tear. Totally recommended!
