Two girls go missing. Only one will return. The couple that offers the highest amount will see their daughter again. The losing couple will not. Make no mistake. One child will die.
When nine year old best friends Charlie and Amy disappear, two families are plunged into a living nightmare. A text message confirms the unthinkable; that the girls are the victims of a terrifying kidnapping. And when a second text message pits the two families against each other for the life of their children, the clock starts ticking for DI Kim Stone and the squad. Seemingly outwitted at every turn, as they uncover a trail of bodies, Stone realises that these ruthless killers might be the most deadly she has ever faced. And that their chances of bringing the girls home alive are getting smaller by the hour.
Continuing on my quest to catch up on the DI Kim Stone series before the latest one is published and here we are at book 3. Which is even better than the previous one! How do you ask? I don’t know! But Angela Marsons raises her game every single time and it blows my mind!
A missing child is every parent’s worst nightmare. But this kidnapper is playing a whole different kind of game. He’s not just taken one little girl, but two. And he’s pitting their families against each other by auctioning off one of the girls to the highest bidder. The other girl will die.
I mean, really. What kind of disturbed mind comes up with something like that?
The first chapter sets the pace and if you’re not hooked from then on, there is something seriously wrong with you! It’s all systems go until the very end and I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough. This book is action-packed, on the edge of your seat gripping and highly emotional. Some of the scenes make for some very uncomfortable reading but those were necessary to bring home the depraved mind of the evil Kim is hunting.
DI Kim Stone continues to steal my heart. Still flawed, still deeply determined, still willing to go that extra mile, still kicking ass and taking numbers. And as we go along, we also learn more about her colleagues, which I love.
This series is absolutely brilliant! I feel I can’t quite adequately bring across my excitement about this series and I’m kicking myself for leaving it this long to get caught up. As it is, I’m re-arranging my schedule every day just to be able to squeeze the next one in somehow. And you should too! What can I say? I’m a fan!
