Description

How do you catch a killer who leaves no trace?

A victim killed with a single, precise stab to the heart appears at first glance to be a robbery gone wrong. A caring, upstanding social worker lost to a senseless act of violence. But for Detective Kim Stone, something doesn't add up.

When a local drug addict is found murdered with an identical wound, Kim knows instinctively that she is dealing with the same killer. But with nothing to link the two victims except the cold, calculated nature of their death, this could be her most difficult case yet.

Desperate to catch the twisted individual, Kim's focus on the case is threatened when she receives a chilling letter from Dr. Alex Thorne, the sociopath who Kim put behind bars. And this time, Alex is determined to hit where it hurts most, bringing Kim face-to-face with the woman responsible for the death of Kim's little brother - her own mother.

As the body count increases, Kim and her team unravel a web of dark secrets, bringing them closer to the killer. But one of their own could be in mortal danger. Only this time, Kim might not be strong enough to save them.

A totally gripping thriller that will have you hooked from the very first minute to the final, dramatic twist.

AWESOME SERIES!

Before I begin this review, I want to suggest highly to anyone reading this review that if you have not read any of these series, to start at the beginning. Angela Marsons develops DCI Kim Stone and her supporting characters throughout the series. To start anywhere else would deprive you of this development and leave you wanting. Now for my review:

I have thoroughly enjoyed reading this series of novels! Angela Marsons has done an excellent job developing Detective Kim Stone's character and her supporting characters. The storylines have always kept me virtually on the edge of my seat. Once I start a novel, I am hard put to set it down. Thank heavens for the Audible version that has allowed me to go about my household work and continually listen!

I hope that this series has not ended and we will continue to enjoy DCI Kim Stone solving complex crimes.

Redundant in parts

I've now listened to all the books in the series. This book is not as good as the first four. It's great when the action is fast paced but pretty boring and repetitive on the Alex Thorne psycho babble portions. The character was interesting in Evil Games but just tedious in Blood Lines - just implausible sub plots. I continue to enjoy the Kim Stone character and her team though and look forward to the next in the series. Leave Alex Thorne in jail though. 😄

First Kim Stone book I couldn't finish

This story was quite boring.
Huge fan of Angela Dawson but this fell short!
Hopefully the next is much better.

Another Solid Hit!

I really do like these characters. I have a clear image of each that has not been contradicted in any of the novels in this series. I like that kind of consistency. The narrator I think goes a little too far in making Kim sound extra tough. There's a difference between firmness and bullying. Kim has the respect of her team; she doesn't have to be a bully to be effective. I hope the narrator will take the edge off that voice in the future.

Another thrill ride from Marsons.

Would you consider the audio edition of Blood Lines to be better than the print version?

I can't compare the two since I only own the audio version. Cramer does an outstanding job, however. She is one of my favorite narrators.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I love Bryant and Stacy and how they interact with Kim. They add humor to every book and humanize Stone.

Which character – as performed by Jan Cramer – was your favorite?

She is really good at transitions and, unlike some other narrators, everybody sounds different. It almost doesn't sound like the same actress doing all the roles. I can't really pick a favorite.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

A nemesis returns ...

Any additional comments?

I do think that revisiting Stone's personal baggage is getting a wee bit old, however. I would like to see new characters and storylines to move the characters forward. I had hoped that Gemma would become like an adopted daughter for Kim. I can't say more about that since it would be a spoiler!

Great dark suspense novel!

Blood Lines is the 5th and last (to date) of Angela Marsons' fabulous Detective Kim Stone series. Kim Stone remains true to herself as she is confident, determined, stubborn, abrasive, and willing to ignore authority when she believes she is right. Marsons is a Brit and her novels are set in England. For those who have listened to some of the novels in the Detective Kim Stone series, Blood Lines finally reveals in detail why she hates her mother. Narrator Jan Cramer does her normal incredibly excellent job.

For those who enjoy police procedural novels with strong suspense and likable protagonists this series is ideal.

Boring

I love this series BUT I hated revisiting the Alex connection. The whole book was boring and repetitive and completely unbelievable. I couldn’t be bothered to finish it. Pass this one up and go on to the next book (6) which is quite good.

What are friends for?

What made the experience of listening to Blood Lines the most enjoyable?

Kim Stone has survived a horrific childhood; has dedicated her life to find the perpetrator; is a genius at solving the most perplexing puzzles; and with a talented, responsible, dedicated team, no perpetrator is safe.....but the best part is the mutual love and respect Kim and her team have for each other......and they always gets the bad guy/gal.

What other book might you compare Blood Lines to and why?

I have enjoyed each and every book on Kim Stone and can only say that they get better as the story unfolds.

What does Jan Cramer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

In my opinion, Jan is one of the BEST narrators to date.....she brings life to all the characters in a way that the reader can visualize the story as the writer meant it to unfold!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Absolutely, if it hadn't been for the fact that I had to travel the following day, I would have done just that. Instead I woke up early this morning to finish the book....thank you Ms. Marsons.....I love your books!

Any additional comments?

I await the next chapter of Kim Stone and will thoroughly enjoy listening to Jan Cramer tell the story.

DI Stone's life is brought to life by Jan Cramer

The narrator Jan Cramer brings me back! She is outstanding with the Kim Stone series.
