I enjoyed Silent Screams, the first book in the D.I. Kim Stone series by Angela Marsons quite a bit, but not enough to make me a die hard fan waiting for the next in the series. Then, I kept seeing a book (Goodreads, WordPress, Amazon) with a plot that sounded like an awesome must read story, which just so happened to be the third in this series. I didn’t see the sense in skipping a book, and I found a copy of this one (but not the third ( )

Evil Games is the second book in the Detective Kim Stone series, following Silent Scream. I liked Evil Games even better than the first one. I read Silent Scream last week after owning it for two years and immediately rushed out and got the rest of the series.

Stone leads the Major Crime Unit for the Midlands Police Department in the Black Country of England. She is smart, driven, and is filled with issues from her childhood that keep her from making close connections with others. In this novel Kim and her team have been working several months to arrest Leonard Dunn, a child molester. They begin to suspect he was not the only person involved and they continue to look into the case. She is also called to the scene of a crime where a woman, who had been raped years earlier, viciously murders her attacker. This leads her to the woman's psychologist, Dr. Alex Thorne, and sets up an intense battle between the doctor and Kim.

I really enjoy the characters in this series, and even though the “flawed detective with an abusive past” is fairly common in the suspense genre, there's something about Kim that is complex and fascinating. Evil Games is a intense, gritty and gripping read. The plot absolutely fascinated me and just when you think you have it figured out, the author pulls the rug out from under you. While the books can be read as stand-alone novels, I recommend reading the first book in the series to gain a better understanding of the returning characters. I listened to the audio, narrated by Jan Cramer, who did a great job of putting me right into the middle of the action. ( )

Quite enjoying a female-led procedural series, especially dark and twisty British one. A female Harry Bosch, if you will. ( )

When a rapist is found mutilated in a brutal stabbing, Detective Kim Stone and her team are called in to bring a swift resolution. With the investigation gathering momentum, whilst also trying to expose the secrets of a sick pedophile ring, Kim finds herself in the sights of a lethal individual undertaking their own twisted experiment. Pitted against a dangerous sociopath who seems to know her every weakness, for Detective Stone, each move she makes could be deadly.

Kim is great at her job and has good instincts about people but hard to like due to her disturbing childhood. When she meets psychiatrist Alex Thorne, she thinks something’s off and it only gets worse as she finds out more. I grew to like Kim as the story went along and hate Alex. The story definitely drew me in. The second storyline was interesting too. There were some good twists and surprises. I plan to read more from Marsons. ( )

I loved everything about the first book, Silent Scream, where we first met D.I. Kim Stone and her team that functions like a well oiled machine. Kim is such an interesting character. She sees things in black or white… there are no shades of grey. If someone is guilty they are guilty regardless of the circumstances. Kim believes in the system and that people should be held accountable for their crimes. The subject of this one was almost unbelievable…at least you hoped that it wasn’t possible…yet Angela Marsons made it work beautifully. In Alex…she has created the perfect adversary…one that the reader will love to hate…one who pushes Kim’s buttons and leads her into danger…which she can see but can’t avoid. The way they played off each other was very clever and made Alex a very chilling character. Kim Stone is going to find a permanent home on my bookshelf. ( )
