Evil Games by Angela Marsons

Evil Games (D.I. Kim Stone #2)Evil Games by Angela Marsons
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Solving crime often involves understanding a deranged or damaged mind. Here the DI has to live with her own damaged mind as well as solve crime. Kim Stone had a very destructive childhood, and the author uses this fact to build a very interesting character, who has a mutually respectful relationship with her sidekick Bryant. The tension is immediate with a child abuse case to investigate, but this builds even further with the suspicion of Doctor Thorne a psychiatrist resident at a local care home. Unfortunately the suspicion is only Kim's and she has to dig deeper if she is to get any real evidence, exposing her own fragile state to the doctor. Angela Marsons has written a gripping thriller with a frighteningly real to life storyline. She weaves the investigation details with Kim Stone's own story very skilfully to ensure you are always anticipating the next page.
