Play Dead
Play Dead: A gripping serial killer thriller | Angela Marsons
6 posts | 10 read | 9 to read
The dead don't tell secrets unless you listen. The girl's smashed-in face stared unseeing up to the blue sky, soil spilling out of her mouth. A hundred flies hovered above the bloodied mess. Westerley research facility is not for the faint-hearted. A 'body farm' investigating human decomposition, its inhabitants are corpses in various states of decay. But when Detective Kim Stone and her team discover the fresh body of a young woman, it seems a killer has discovered the perfect cover to bury their crime. Then a second girl is attacked and left for dead, her body drugged and mouth filled with soil. It's clear to Stone and the team that a serial killer is at work, but just how many bodies will they uncover? And who is next? As local reporter, Tracy Frost, disappears, the stakes are raised. The past seems to hold the key to the killer's secrets, but can Kim uncover the truth before a twisted, damaged mind claims another victim? The latest utterly addictive thriller from the No.1 bestseller Angela Marsons. What readers are saying about Play Dead I read this book in one sitting, yes it really was that good: the perfect crime thriller, well plotted, great characters, suspense and the most deviant and chilling serial killer Utterly gripping and it's certainly going to be in my top reads of 2016 5 stars out of 5 plus a glass of wine (to steady my nerves, after reading such a heart-pounding crime thriller).' The Book Review Caf_ 'Wow wow wow I absolutely freaking loved it and without a shadow of doubt this is the best one yet with this one being more gritty and tense. You crime book fans are seriously going to love it. If you haven't read any yet this can be read as a standalone although I would advise reading the series. It's too good not to miss... I cannot recommend this book enough it's flippin fantastic or like they say in the Black Country Supa' smashin' great read!'Chelle's book reviews 'Hooks you and reels you in. Life gets put on hold until you've finished the latest offering in her AMAZING Kim Stone series .utterly fantastic.' Reading Room with a View Wow. Give me a minute while I catch my breath, because I've just finished the latest Angela Marson's book. Ingest it by any means, just make sure you do. It is a riveting, blood-tingling, pulse pounding read that will take you on the journey that will play on your mind long after you've finished reading. Caroline-Writes This may well be the best thriller I have ever read. I could hardly breathe with the suspense and it was definitely a hardship to wrench myself away from the action. Redheaded Bookworm I defy anyone to turn away from the page. I was glued to this book a truly gripping and ,at times, terrifying story. Book Addict Shaun 'Can I give 6 stars?

I absolutely love this series. Each book gets better and better. I‘m thankful my library is connected with Mobius which shares with other library systems nationwide. This one came from Altoona, the next one is ordered and being shared from Springfield!!! 😊💜💜💜

Andrew65 A great series! 7d
Booknerd2 @Andrew65 I love it!!! I can‘t believe I just discovered it. The good thing is, I get to read a lot of them before having to wait for the next one. I‘m in the US and enjoy these British mystery/suspense series. Any suggestions? 😬 7d
Andrew65 @Booknerd2 I will give it some thought and make some suggestions, which will most probably be many! Love Mystery and Suspense. 7d

BlameJennyJane One of my favorite series! The audiobooks are great too. The same narrator does them all and she‘s become Kim‘s voice to me so I hear her in my head even when I‘m reading the books. (edited) 7d
Booknerd2 @@andrew65 Thank you I would appreciate it. 7d
Booknerd2 @BlameJennyJane I‘ve never tried an audiobook. I‘m not sure I could stay focused. 7d
BlameJennyJane @Booknerd2 you can always give it a try free through your public library so you don‘t have to make the investment. I got hooked on Hoopla. I listen on my commute and when exercising... in other words... when I‘m bored. Lol 7d
Booknerd2 @BlameJennyJane I may just try one, thank you. 6d

Loved this instalment the best this far. I loved the antagonists and there whole murder mystery. There were s couple twists that were really unexpected do that was a treat. I feel like DI Kim Stone is really growing as a character and that we are seeing so many different facets of her character.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2

Another #mystery so suspenseful it left me breathless and so thrilling I couldn't put it down. Marsons never fails to provide her readers with a crazy, intense plot that's fresh and inventive, balancing the darkness with light through the development and healing of her characters throughout the series. A true artist when it comes to weaving together the many fibers of an intricate storyline to create a perfect tapestry of crime!

I love this author, her books are so dark and creepy, but . . . does anyone else ever worry that they're somehow exposing their #readingcompanions to inappropriate material . . . or am I just weird? #dogsoflitsy #mystery #thriller
