Book Description

The greater the Evil, the more deadly the game… 

When a rapist is found mutilated in a brutal attack, Detective Kim Stone and her team are called in to bring a swift resolution. But, as more vengeful killings come to light, it soon becomes clear that there is someone far more sinister at work.

With the investigation quickly gathering momentum, Kim finds herself exposed to great danger and in the sights of a lethal individual undertaking their own twisted experiment.

Up against a sociopath who seems to know her every weakness, for Detective Stone, each move she makes could be deadly. As the body count starts to mount, Kim will have to dig deeper than ever before to stop the killing. And this time - it’s personal.

The rising star of the British thriller scene returns with a novel that enthrall fans of Rachel Abbott, Val McDermid and Mark Billingham.

What people are saying about the Number One Bestselling author Angela Marsons
'Stunning The Mail on Sunday

'I absolutely loved it! ... This one is one of the best crime thrillers I've read in a long time, and that includes mainstream authors such as James Patterson!' Fiona’s Book Reviews

’I don't think I've been so hooked by a new author since the discovery of Mark Edwards or Mark Billingham… if you finish a crime thriller feeling like you just need to have a lie-down and a cup of tea to get your breath back, then the writer has done their job. Angela Marsons, I still don't have my breath back.’ Reading Room with a View

‘Angela is already on my list of favourite female writers, she is up there with Rachel Abbott, Mel Sherratt … Leigh Russell and Karen Long.’ Crime Book Club

I have not been so impressed by a debut novel in a long time, and I'm actually now itching for more …D.I. Kim Stone is like the British Jane Rizzoli. She's so ballsy and doesn't understand the meaning of the word no.’ Leah Loves

‘The only problem Angela now faces is keeping up this standard as the series progresses, but if she does than she's going to be an author to watch and a huge star within the genre.’ Book Addict Shaun

It's highly unusual for me to find a book that leads me to put my life on hold. But Angela Marson's Silent Scream has led me to virtually abandon work for the last day, even with deadlines looming’ Off the Shelf

About the Author

 Angela discovered a love of writing at Primary School when a short piece on the rocks and the sea gained her the only merit point she ever got.

Angela wrote the stories that burned inside and then stored them safely in a desk drawer.
After much urging from her partner she began to enter short story competitions in Writer's News resulting in a win and three short listed entries.

She used the Amazon KDP program to publish two of her earlier works before concentrating on her true passion - Crime.

After many, many submissions Angela was signed in a 4 book deal to as their first crime author.

Her first book SILENT SCREAM will be published in February 2015

My Review

Evil Games is the second book in the D.I. Kim Stone crime thriller series by Angela Marsons. I was very impressed by the first book Silent Scream. Evil Games is just as impressive.

I know that true evil exists in this world and so does author Angela Marsons. She has created a evil sociopath who ignorantly plays with people's lives for her own pleasure. I haven't hated a character so much in such a long time! I really hated Dr. Alex Thorne and wanted her brought down.

D.I. Kim Stone really has her work cut out for her in Evil Games. Such an appropriate title. I wondered if debut author Marsons would be able to follow up with a equally compelling second novel and she has.

Five stars. Great read! Be ready to be terrified by the evil that does exist all around us!
