About the Book- Lost Girls by Angela Marsons
Two girls go missing. Only one will return.
The couple that offers the highest amount will see their daughter again. The losing couple will not. Make no mistake. One child will die.
When nine-year-old best friends Charlie and Amy disappear, two families are plunged into a living nightmare. A text message confirms the unthinkable; that the girls are the victims of a terrifying kidnapping.
And when a second text message pits the two families against each other for the life of their children, the clock starts ticking for and the squad.
Seemingly outwitted at every turn, as they uncover a trail of bodies, Stone realises that these ruthless killers might be the most deadly she has ever faced. And that their chances of bringing the girls home alive, are getting smaller by the hour…
Untangling a dark web of secrets from the families’ past might hold the key to solving this case. But can Kim stay alive long enough to do so? Or will someone’s child pay the ultimate price?
Our Review of Lost Girls
And Angela Marsons proves once again why I am such a big fan of her series and especially of DI Kim Stone. She knows when and where to spread the web so that the readers get caught up in the plot. The series is back again with a criminal investigation that is truly a race against time.
The book definitely shines because of the bold and unwavering character of Kim stone. It is such a joy to watch the character develop and evolve from where it started. This Kim Stone is definitely a more advanced version of the DI we saw in the first book.
The book is a slow burn. No doubts there. The series has always focused on the investigation trails rather than the adrenaline rush. So no car chases and bombs are exploding. The investigation is more practical and grounded but filled with all sorts of thrills and turns that will keep you hooked on the book from all angles.
In conclusion, if you like a badass heroine then look nowhere as this book is the answer you will ever need. To me, she is my female alternative for Jack Reacher Series. It’s pure mind and brain games and feeds the perfect amount of adrenaline and fun.
