Publisher's Summary

It had seemed so simple. Get in, get the information, get out. But now they were getting inside her mind and she didn’t know how to stop them...

When Detective Kim Stone is called to the home of Samantha Brown, she finds the young woman lying in bed with her throat cut and a knife in her hand. With no sign of forced entry or struggle, Kim rules her death a tragic suicide. 

But a visit to Samantha’s parents rings alarm bells for Kim - there’s something they’re not telling her. And, when she spots a clue in a photograph, Kim realizes she’s made a huge mistake. Samantha didn’t take her own life, she was murdered. 

Then a young man’s body is found in a local lake with his throat cut and Kim makes a link between the victim and Samantha. They both spent time at Unity Farm, a retreat for people seeking an alternative way of life. 

Beneath the retreat’s cozy façade, Kim and her team uncover a sinister community preying on the emotionally vulnerable. 

Sending one of her own undercover into Unity Farm is high risk but it’s Kim’s only hope if she is to catch a killer - someone Kim is convinced the victims knew and trusted. 

With Bryant distracted by the emergence of a harrowing case close to his heart, and an undercover officer in way over her head, Kim’s neck is on the line like never before. Can she protect those closest to her before another life is taken? 

An unbelievably gripping crime thriller from best seller Angela Marsons that will have you hooked on the Detective Kim Stone series.

Another Detective Kim Stone winner!

KILLING MIND is Book 12 in the Detective Kim Stone series by British author Angela Marsons. This one is about a cult that lures in young people who are dissatisfied with their lives. Jan Cramer's narration is excellent.

Well Done!

I have often left feedback about Marsons’ Kim Stone series. Kim Stone is absolutely one of my favorite detectives and the combination of Marsons’ dialogue and Jan Cramer’s reading of it, is consistently a delight! What made this novel all the more compelling for me was the application of constructive feedback I’ve left in the past. While it is possible this feedback was never read and the author made the choice herself, I was glad to not have to hear the killer’s point of view periodically throughout the book. In the past these vignettes have been read in an over-the-top manner that was distracting from Marsons’ pitch perfect writing. Whether it was due to my feedback or not, this novel struck the perfect balance! This particular mystery was cleverly outlined and executed. I’m not going to give away any spoilers. I’ll just say this is definitely one of Marsons’ most intriguing Stone novels to date. Well done!

Another 5 Star Book by Angela Marsons

Killing Mind was absolutely amazing as all of Angela Marson's books are!
It kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time and I had no idea who the perpetrator
was until she was ready to tell us!!!!
Jan Cramer's narration was great as well. She is the perfect Kim!!!

Like visiting friends

Can't wait to each new book. Listening to it is like visiting old friends. Kim Stone is such a dedicated and headstrong character and the rest of the department always complements her style.
The story is engaging and the intriguing and as alway narration adds to the book.
Can't wait for the next one. Being part of the story is like being a part of dysfunctional, yet loving family who always has your back.

Another great one

I've loved all of the Kim Stone books and this one is no exception. I wanted to keep listening until the very end and completed in one day! The narrator is just brilliant and keeps you entertained and engaged. I can't wait for Kim and her team's next assignment! Great job all around!

Another highly entertaining Angela Marsons book!

I have loved this series, and can't wait for the next book. Even when the story line isn't the most thrilling or suspenseful, the characters are awesome. The interjection of humor and sarcasm between the team is fabulous! It literally makes me laugh out loud! Very clever!

DI Kim Stone at her best

Another great sequel. I love watching the way these characters have developed throughout this series. Each is independent but as a group they are unstoppable! And each one is given a special role and the story spotlights them. DI Kim Stone is spectacular as usual and the team is definitely a “WE”

ANOTHER WINNER

I have been eagerly waiting for this 12th book to come out in this amazing series and, as always, I was not disappointed! The characters are so fascinating with imperfections and yet total dedication to their job in solving crimes. I love the interactions between each member and the fierce dedication and loyalty they feel towards their boss, Kim Stone. If anyone is reading this review and has not started from the very first novel Silent Scream, I strongly recommend that you start with that one so you will know the full background of all of the characters. I envy you this journey. My only disappointment is now I have to wait for the next one to come along. I tried to make myself listen to this book in small increments but I just could not do it because it was too intriguing. Jan Kramer is the best narrator I have ever listened to and that involves a lot of audible books! She makes every single character come alive with their individual voice and accents. As an American reader, I’m always amazed at the lack of guns and weapons these police officers carry and yet are still able to do the very efficient job at fighting crime! Do NOT PASS THIS SERIES UP!

Disappointing

I loved all the Kim Stone books but the narrator ruined this one for me. Never imagined Kim as a posh middle aged schoolteacher type until now.
