Publisher's Summary

How do you catch a killer who leaves no trace?
A victim killed with a single, precise stab to the heart appears at first glance to be a robbery gone wrong. A caring, upstanding social worker lost to a senseless act of violence. But for Detective Kim Stone, something doesn't add up.
When a local drug addict is found murdered with an identical wound, Kim knows instinctively that she is dealing with the same killer. But with nothing to link the two victims except the cold, calculated nature of their death, this could be her most difficult case yet.
Desperate to catch the twisted individual, Kim's focus on the case is threatened when she receives a chilling letter from Dr. Alex Thorne, the sociopath who Kim put behind bars. And this time, Alex is determined to hit where it hurts most, bringing Kim face-to-face with the woman responsible for the death of Kim's little brother - her own mother.
As the body count increases, Kim and her team unravel a web of dark secrets, bringing them closer to the killer. But one of their own could be in mortal danger. Only this time, Kim might not be strong enough to save them.
A totally gripping thriller that will have you hooked from the very first minute to the final, dramatic twist.

AWESOME SERIES!

Before I begin this review, I want to suggest highly to anyone reading this review that if you have not read any of these series, to start at the beginning. Angela Marsons develops DCI Kim Stone and her supporting characters throughout the series. To start anywhere else would deprive you of this development and leave you wanting. Now for my review:

I have thoroughly enjoyed reading this series of novels! Angela Marsons has done an excellent job developing Detective Kim Stone's character and her supporting characters. The storylines have always kept me virtually on the edge of my seat. Once I start a novel, I am hard put to set it down. Thank heavens for the Audible version that has allowed me to go about my household work and continually listen!

I hope that this series has not ended and we will continue to enjoy DCI Kim Stone solving complex crimes.

Loved the story.

Would you listen to Blood Lines again? Why?

Great strong central character in Kim Stone. The development through the series is a plus. I want to know where her life is headed so I want to read the next book...great detective story aside.

Any additional comments?

Really easy to listen too. Great narration which brings characters to life with good voice variation.

Another brilliant Kim Stone story!

This is the fifth book in the series and i have to say the one i have enjoyed the most. Its fast paced and keeps you guessing right up to the very end. Excellent story line. If you enjoy murder mystery type books that keep you reading and guessing this is a must read. Great work. I just hope she continues to write Kim Stone Detective stories. I have enjoyed them all so far.
