Book review: Evil Games - Angela Marsons (D.I. Kim Stone #2)


The greater the Evil, the more deadly the game… 
When a rapist is found mutilated in a brutal attack, Detective Kim Stone and her team are called in to bring a swift resolution. But, as more vengeful killings come to light, it soon becomes clear that there is someone far more sinister at work. 

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.


My opinion.
In this second book following D.I. Kim Stone, Angela Marsons may have written her most evil character yet. Violence, psychological manipulation, abuse,... you name it, Evil Games and its sociopath villain have it all.  Shocking and malicious, the events and characters in this book are both repulsive and addictive. You simply can't stop reading. Especially when our wonderful heroine, Kim Stone, herself is threatened. 
When I read Lost Girls (Book #3) I said "All credit to Angela Marsons for making this an enjoyable read, despite the cruelty of the case." which is just as true for Evil Games. And just like in Silent Scream, every case detail and every character has different layers to them and Angela Marsons keeps you on your toes with unexpected twists and turns. The manipulative games gave me goosebumps in a story where everyone is a possible victim... and villain.
Brilliant read.
