Publisher's Summary

Her stomach lurches as she sits in the windowless room. He throws her phone to the ground, grinds it against the floor with the heel of his shoe, and brings his face closer to hers. There was no turning back now; her life as she knew it was gone.

When Detective Kim Stone is called to a local business, what she sees leaves her speechless. The photo on the driving license bears little resemblance to the man laid out before her, and she knows she’s up against the most twisted killer she has ever encountered.

But as she breaks the devastating news to the victim’s wife, Diane Phipps, Kim can’t help feeling that something isn’t quite right about the woman’s reaction. 

Twenty-four hours later, Diane and the rest of the victim’s family disappears into thin air.

Then, a second body is found staked to the ground in a local nature reserve.

Desperate to crack the case open quickly, Kim and her team unravel a vital clue - a fiercely guarded secret that links both victims and could cost even more lives. 

A secret that some police officers are also protecting. 

Faced with deceit from those she should be able to trust, family members who won’t talk, and local reporter Tracy Frost opening a can of worms on the case of a woman murdered by her husband a year ago - Kim is in deep water like never before. 

Kim must find the motive if she is to find the killer who is systematically targeting his victims. But can she unlock the shocking truth and stop him before he strikes again?

An absolutely jaw-dropping crime thriller from the number one, multi-million-copy best-selling author of the incredibly addictive Detective Kim Stone series.

What a twist - several in fact

This latest Kim Stone story did not disappoint. Winced at some of the more Gorey parts but they were necessary. Final twist absolutely floored me. Brilliantly written. love Jan Cramers narration.

Thank you

Nice to listen to

Its always nice to listen to another Kim Stone story and even the narrator is a voice l have grown to like. This story was alright l don't think it was the best, the book seemed to be over and done with faster than the rest. I think what l like about the series is that upon each new book you get that extra layer of depth in the character's and on this book it was a light layer. Still a Angela Marsons so-so book is still way better than what many authors can achieve.

Once Again A Wild Ride!

Well I knew this would happen! As soon as I allowed myself to start listening to the first paragraph, I was hooked and got nothing done for the whole day until I finished this latest chapter in Kim Stone and her amazing team! It’s always like getting back with good friends and I am led through every emotion from laughter at the banter among the coworkers to absolute goosebumps over the horrendous crimes they have to investigate! Of course the amazing narrator Jan Cramer brings the characters to life and is such a vital part of the experience! Thank you Angela Marsons for another spine tingling novel and please please hurry with the next one! BEST SERIES EVER😍💕😱

Love it! Love the Series!

I love how Angela Marsons builds and develops this group from book to book. They are a perfect mix of diverse people who know what they do best and do it. They will jump in wherever Kim needs them to solve a case. Bryant is the voice of reason who keeps Kim on the straight and narrow—most of the time. Stacey is one of my favorite characters. She is a smart, gifted researcher/computer wiz who often makes me laugh. Penn fits perfectly working with Stacey and in the field. Woody is rough on the outside, but a lovable boss who fights for his team.

Kim Stone is one of my all-time favorite characters. She is often brisk, and unfeeling, but she has some beautiful and caring moments that show her true heart. The support characters add so much life and depth to the stories; I love each one of them for different reasons. I enjoyed learning more about Tracy’s backstory and the like/hate relationship between her and Kim.

The murder investigation is brutal. The torture and murders are mind-boggling and sick. The murder scenes are difficult to read sometimes. If you know this series, you know Keats. The murders make Keats voice quiver, and other cops need to walk away. As sick as it is, I was riveted.

I love this series. In my opinion, Twisted Lies is one of the best. Even though this book works as a standalone, I don’t recommend reading out of order. The previous books have a lot of backstory that adds to the characters. However, if you are picking up this book, the primary focus is the case.

Jan Cramer has narrated this series from the beginning. She brings her insight, emotions, and love to the story. I enjoy listening to her.

If you love police procedurals this is a must read. If you love stories that keep you on the edge of your seat, this is the book for you. If you are reading this series, wow, what a great addition. If you are crazy about a good story, you must discover Kim Stone. You will not be sorry.

I loved the flow of this book, the action and intrigue. Angela has out done herself. Trying to keep up with the action and moving parts was great. I cant wait for the next book.

I’ve read all of the DI Stone books in order but thought I would get the latest as an audio book. It’s unbelievably good with twists and turns that keep you on the edge of your seat. Thoroughly recommend it!!!

*This is Twisted*

DI Kim Stone and her team have a baffling case. The problem is that their hands seem to be tied at every turn. Kim and Bryant go to the scene of a gruesome tortuous murder, each murder they discover has a dark meaning, can they find connection? They visit the family to break the terrible news and the dynamics of the family seem strange - what is it?

Kim & Bryant go back to the home only to find the whole family have moved out and disappeared why!!! Stacey can only find records only going back 5 years. I have to mention Penn he never shies away from post mortem’s and he really loves a puzzle and this case almost outfoxes him.

The team are on the verge of finding out the reason for the lack of info when Kim is called to see her DCI and one of the top bosses is in the room and he reveals the reason behind the lack of records. Kim is asked to keep it to herself but she says her team are trustworthy.

As they start to put the pieces together and more bodies pile up, can they get to the last victim in time? Kim & Bryant always seem to arrive at the scene of possible suspects and they split up and she seems to find the suspect first, my heart lurches as I hope Bryant gets to her on time with back up. This time unusually Kim is running away from the suspect…..

At the same time the reporter Tracy Frost who often clashes with Kim is working on a domestic violence case, the man involved is a slippery character who appears charming and somehow has his PR team and lawyers behind him. As Tracy gets towards the truth she becomes a target, but even with the threats she is undeterred as she wants Justice.

Stacey has a possible career decision to make….

Ruined by narrator

I have listened to the entire “Kim Stone” series but now find I can no longer enjoy them because of the narrator. The character of Penn sounds as if he is on ‘speed’ , others sound as if they are in ‘dream land’ , The character Kim Stone always made to sound aggressive rather than assertive, and so on. The story was interesting, especially the final twist, but I struggled to listen to the end because of the narrator. I will be READING future books in this series, not listening to the audiobook editions.
