Review: Broken Bones by Angela Marsons @WriteAngie @bookouture

I am a busy blogger. I have lots that I need to achieve over the next couple of months, least of which is my actual ‘work’ workload. In order to accomplish all that I need to do, I have a very detailed and very comprehensive reading plan. There is very little which will see me deviate from this plan, however tempting a book may be. And yet when Bookouture announce that the new Angela Marsons book is now available on Netgalley… Well there really is only one thing a girl can do. That very night, all other plans and books were cast aside (sorry authors) and I dove straight in. But was it worth it? Did Broken Bones meet all my expectations and justify my betrayal of all those other fabulous books still in my list? Well, we can find that out in just a moment, as soon as we’ve taken a look at what the heck this seventh (yes seventh!!!) book in the most excellent Kim Stone series is all about.

Broken-Bones-KindleThe Official Book Blurb

They thought they were safe. They were wrong.

The murder of a young prostitute and a baby found abandoned on the same winter night signals the start of a disturbing investigation for Detective Kim Stone – one which brings her face to face with someone from her own horrific childhood.

As more sex workers are murdered in quick succession, each death more violent than the last, Kim and her team realise that the initial killing was no one-off frenzied attack, but a twisted serial killer preying on the vulnerable.

At the same time, the search begins for the desperate woman who left her newborn baby at the station – but what looks like a tragic abandonment turns even more sinister when a case of modern slavery is uncovered.

The two investigations bring the team into a terrifying world of human exploitation and cruelty – and a showdown that puts Kim’s life at risk as shocking secrets from her own past come to light.

A gripping new crime thriller from the Number One bestseller – you will be hooked until the final jaw-dropping twist.
