With the investigation quickly gathering momentum, Kim finds herself exposed to great danger and in the sights of a lethal individual undertaking their own twisted experiment.
Up against a sociopath who seems to know her every weakness, for Detective Stone, each move she makes could be deadly. As the body count starts to mount, Kim will have to dig deeper than ever before to stop the killing. And this time – it’s personal.
Evil Games is the second book in the DI Kim Stone series by Angela Marsons, The first Silent Scream, was a top-notch detective thriller and this continues the theme. The writing itself has matured and the novel itself is darker with Kim battling against another woman, Alex, in a psychological battle field. Neither woman is particularly likeable but Kim is on the right side of the law putting criminals behind bars. The is more than one storyline going on with one of them being a child abuse case and another being the murder of a rapist. Both are difficult subjects in themselves. The best part of the book was Kim and Ale, Alex is a nasty person herself and the confrontations between them are brilliant. Angela Marsons has done a superb job getting into the head and the world of a psychopath.
