Publisher's Summary

Two girls go missing. Only one will return.

The couple that offers the highest amount will see their daughter again. The losing couple will not. Make no mistake. One child will die....

When nine-year-old best friends Charlie and Amy disappear, two families are plunged into a living nightmare. A text message confirms the unthinkable; that the girls are the victims of a terrifying kidnapping.

And when a second text message pits the two families against each other for the life of their children, the clock starts ticking for D.I. Kim Stone and the squad.

Seemingly outwitted at every turn, as they uncover a trail of bodies, Stone realizes that these ruthless killers might be the most deadly she has ever faced, and that their chances of bringing the girls home alive are getting smaller by the hour....

Untangling a dark web of secrets from the families' past might hold the key to solving this case. But can Kim stay alive long enough to do so? Or, will someone's child pay the ultimate price?

The latest utterly addictive thriller from the number-one best seller Angela Marsons.

Yet another great book by Angela Marsons. Jan Kramer is a fantastic narrator. I can't wait for the next story which I've already downloaded.

Yes it was a great read ...

OH I am so pleased to know I predicted the final outcome.... BUT even happier that I wasn't proven right until the very end... I was still doubting myself till the last few minutes of the story.
looking foward to more of your books.
I haven't found Book 1 or 2 yet, although that had no impact on this story at all for me.

Narration

I absolutely love these books, the storyline, the twists and turns fantastic. However, one thing that I cannot stand is the way way the narrator portrays Kim Stone to be, I can understand aggressive, no nonsense, cold, private and all else that is needed in a person such as Kim Stone, but she is downright rude, barking orders, never asking, always telling in a piggish way, and I can’t bear it. Make her sound bossy, firm, a go getter, but not rude. Other than that the narrator has a lovely voice, clear and distinct. Very well written.

I love the curve balls!

If you could sum up Lost Girls in three words, what would they be?

Not always predictable!

What did you like best about this story?

I really like it when I can't guess where the story is going - Angela Marsons's book (all of them actually) offer refreshing cases and a team I love!

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

I love DI Kim and her team - they are great together.

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

Yes!! All of her books make you want to do this.

Best DI Kim Stone book so far

Everything about this book was fantastic.
The suspense was gripping, characters relatable, and style is wonderful.

This book has been the most graphic of the series so far, some parts a bit disturbing, but perfect for the development of the story.

If you a crime suspense junky, you shouldn't miss this one

just okay

I read the reviews and wanted to like this but I just couldn't get interested enough to enjoy it. I kept finding myself rewinding back several times because I couldn't remember what I just heard . I can't pinpoint it but it just didn't grab me , didn't make me want to know more. I did finish it but it was difficult.

Even better than its 4.5 star average rating!

British author Angels Marsons knows how to build suspense! This is novel #3 in the DI Kim Stone crime thriller series. Like the first 2 it earns a 5 star rating. The cases are about kidnappings of 9 year old girls. If you like crime thrillers, they do not get better than this series. English actress Jan Cramer narrates as she does with the outstanding Detective Erica Foster series by author Robert Bryndza. With fewer than 50 novels to her credit Jan Cramer is quickly becoming one of the best narrators. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Kim Stone

Kim Stone is a good protagonist, she has her demons but she gets the job done.

This series is fast paced and the crimes ugly. It's a good series that keeps you entertained and looking forward to getting back to the book to continue the story.

If you like this genre you should like this one. And, you get to learn a bit about the Black Country of the UK.

Lost Girls

I didn’t like the details of what the captors did to the kidnapped girls for mental and physical torture. For a fictional story I felt depicting those particular details was a bit over the top.

Love this series and this book does NOT disappoint!!

Such a good clever book. Harder content as it hits close to home with subject matter fears - and found myself bawling at times, especially at the end. However, totally love this book and as alway Jan Cramer you do a fantastic job!!

Didn't Finish

The story line was decent, but there was something about either the writing or the narrating that caused me to not be able to pay enough attention. It was one of those books that didn't grip me, and I found myself constantly needing to back up 30 or 60 seconds, or sometimes to the beginning of the chapter. After trudging through like this until maybe two-thirds of the way through, I finally decided that it wasn't worth it to continue this way and finish the book. It's kind of a shame, because I wanted to know how it ended. However, the book wasn't compelling enough for it to matter all that much. Oh well--off to a new title...

Narration much better - story outstanding

I have now listened to all 3 books of this series, all narrated by Jan Cramer. After the first book I was critical of the narration but I'm really glad I persevered. As ever, the story was fast paced and gripping, but the narration this time was superb. If you are hesitating over this audiobook due to doubts about the narrator, then go for it - you won't be disappointed.

Gripping!

A truly gripping tale, fast paced, gruesome in parts, full of twists and turns. It depicts humanity at its worst and at its best. The characters were gritty shaped by childhood experiences. It's about the power of love, how important it is and the devastation to the human soul when there is none present. Highly recommended.

This was an excellent story, really gripping from start to finish. Can't wait to read the next Kim Stone instalment. I've ready one previously however this is definitely my favourite. Thought I'd guessed the bad guy but I was wrong, excellent writing and great delivery.

Fast paced, tense and exciting!

I have really enjoyed the first three Kim Stone books. I couldn't stop listening until I knew what would happen to the girls! Very likable characters and well written. Like the other two books I found it quite far fetched and had a few plot holes, but still entertaining and enjoyable to read. I hope the autor is planning on more in the Kim Stone series but please for the love of god fire the narrator!

Story good but the characters not the best

The detective seemed pretty clueless, overly self assured and with a very flat sense of humour. The story itself was clever, although the characters of the evil characters were not well drawn out.

Absolutely brilliant

Someone else mentioned that they didn't rate the narrator in the first book, but thought she was brilliant in this one - I could not agree more, she was excellent.

The story line was the best one yet. In fact I would go as far as to say this is the best detective book I have read to date (and I have read a lot! Highly recommend, I do think it is best to read the books in order, although you can read them all individually.

This book had me on the edge of my seat, and would make a brilliant TV series.

Fantastic book

This is the type of book you want to skip to the end to see what happens so its for sure a page turner but in audio. The narration is very good and getting better by the book I love her Black Country voice.
I will admit I did guess the 3rd kidnapper fairly early on.
