Hidden Scars: A completely gripping crime thriller with a nail-biting twist (Detective Kim Stone Book 17)
About this deal
On the lighter side I always enjoy my time with Kim, Bryant, Penn and Stace and I devour any new information revealed about who they are and what makes them tick. Make sure to clear your schedule before you start reading this book, because it’s hard to stop reading once you’re past the first couple of pages. She has told the psychologists what they want to hear but is she really ready to get back into the saddle? This series truly just gets better and better and I know I’m not alone in wanting the next instalment the second I reach the end of Angela Marson’s latest brilliant offering.
I thought I had things figured out but it all fell apart at the end because of subtle clues I’d ignored.Mentally, however, she’s still got a long way to go despite her duping the therapist to think otherwise. In her last investigation, Kim came very close to death and has been absent from work for two months. Anyway, after 17 books, you would think they would be getting "old", but each books is fresh, and I can't wait for the next one! Actually, I say an emotive case, there are actually two cases on the go, one that takes the focus of the majority of the team, the main premise of the novel, and one that has really hit a nerve with Stacey. And when Kim hits upon a shocking secret that changes everything she thought she knew about Helen, she realises that the remaining family members are in grave danger.

They are doing this to make you suffer, to make you hurt and the only possible end game can be death. She reveals a certain vulnerability that we have not seen before and which takes a bit of getting used to. There’s real friendship there, even if Kim is not the first one to show it, and the way this is expressed in the book makes you feel a real part of the team – of the family – as you embark on each new thrilling instalment. When a nineteen-year-old boy, Jamie Mills, is found hanging from a tree in a local park, his death is ruled a suicide.
She has a big heart, and it shows in her interactions with Bryant and a young man named River in this book. Kim makes a further chilling discovery – the head of the clinic, Celia Gardner, was sent there for conversion therapy when she was sixteen.
When the body of a doctor is discovered brutally murdered in local woodland, Detective Kim Stone is shocked to discover the victim is Gordon Cordell – a man linked to a previous case she worked on involving the death of a young school girl.
But when human remains are discovered at a former children’s home, disturbing secrets are also unearthed.
