Firstly I wish to thank Kim Nash of Bookouture for inviting me to take part on this Blog Tour for DEAD SOULS by Angela Marsons
The truth was dead and buried…until now.
When a collection of human bones is unearthed during a routine archaeological dig, a Black Country field suddenly becomes a complex crime scene for Detective Kim Stone.
As the bones are sorted, it becomes clear that the grave contains more than one victim. The bodies hint at unimaginable horror, bearing the markings of bullet holes and animal traps.
Forced to work alongside Detective Travis, with whom she shares a troubled past, Kim begins to uncover a dark secretive relationship between the families who own the land in which the bodies were found.
But while Kim is immersed in one of the most complicated investigations she’s ever led, her team are caught up in a spate of sickening hate crimes. Kim is close to revealing the truth behind the murders, yet soon finds one of her own is in jeopardy – and the clock is ticking. Can she solve the case and save them from grave danger – before it’s too late?
An addictive, sinister crime thriller that will have readers on the edge of their seat.
HERE ARE MY THOUGHTS AND REVIEW
I always believe that when I have read an Angela Marsons book that is the best so far and here I go again saying the same thing. She hasn’t just reached the top of the ladder she is in the clouds and even the sky isn’t the limit with this lady. Just love this whole series.
The opening scene in 1989 is really heart breaking I can never get my head round the pure evil acts that one human can do to another. Here at this moment is when humanity takes a dive even further and you feel ashamed not just to be British but to be human too. In present day an archaeological class is out in the field, literally out in a field learning the importance of following procedure, no matter how tedious, so that relics of the years gone by are not damaged. What is discovered are the human bones of a not too distant past.
Detective Kim Stone is first on the scene simply by chance of being in the area but when Detective Travis arrives the air could easily turn a shade of blue. Having a turbulent past would be putting it mildly as each of them is willing to battle for this obvious murder scene. They should have been careful what they wished for.
This is an absolutely stunning story and tell it as it really is Angela Marsons makes it all up close and personal. It really is shocking to think that so many people constantly live in fear. Racism is the ultimate depraved form of bullying at its worst. Well what can I say about Kim Stone that hasn’t already been said before, Just love the sheer determination of this woman. This was a really hard case for her in more than one way and she still stays the professional when it comes down to doing the right thing. More of this mixed duo please.
