Lost Girls by Angela Marsons – Book 3 in the DI Kim Stone series.

Book description:

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 D.I. 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…

Untangling a dark web of secrets from the families’ past might hold the key to solving this case. But can Kim stay alive long enough to do so? Or will someone’s child pay the ultimate price?

My thoughts:

This intense episode in the DI Kim Stone series had me glued to the page. When two children are kidnapped, Stone reluctantly enters the investigation which immediately adds to the tension. Time is of the essence in this novel and the stakes are high, which equals ‘big time page-turner.’

I love Kim’s character. She’s guarded, she’s brave and she’s human. She’s a little curt but I actually admire that, especially when she tells it as it is. You’d definitely know where you stood with Kim. She’ll also stop at nothing to drive the investigation forward and Angela Marsons brings her character to life brilliantly.

This story had me guessing from the beginning and, in the end, proved I was way off the mark with my theories. The ending was a killer! Not literally a killer, or maybe it was. Maybe I’m just throwing you off the scent! Either way, you’ll get nothing from me. Lips are zipped!

If you want to know more, you’ll have to read the book. I promise, this one will keep you up at night, cause you to neglect your work and make you happy your train got pulled over for an hour because of a signal failure – true story. Hoorah for rail failures!

An excellent and exciting police procedural that will keep you guessing.
