    5+++ starsGosh, I had a tough week. Our house is basically a kitty infirmary right now with several of our seven cats having significant health issues. Two ER visits, lots of pills, eyedrops eight times a day, liquid meds, subcutaneous fluids, extra meals and much cuddling. Thank goodness this was the week I landed a copy of Broken Bones! It was my lifeline.Broken Bones is book #7 of the superb DI Kim Stone series. Angela Marsons is to be commend...

    We are back for the latest installment of this treasured series with the beloved DI Kim Stone, which Angela Marsons has made unmissable. Marsons continues with the hard hitting series giving us a well researched and gritty look at the horrors of our contemporary world. There are multiple threadlines in this tense and thrilling book. It is Christmas day, and would you believe it, left on the steps of the police station Kim finds an abandoned baby ...

    Copy furnished by Net Galley for the price of a review.On the same night that an abandoned baby shows up on the steps of the police precinct, a young prostitute is found murdered. There will be more murdered prostitutes soon. Just girls, really. Each with her own hopes and dreams, all cut short. If you are expecting the DI Kim Stone series to become stale, you had best cool your heels and hunker down for a long wait. It isn't going to happen here...

    Books like these are why I love some thrillers. I started this series at book six and haven't gone back to read the first ones in the series. I totally need to kick my own butt for that because I read tons of crap and these are a guaranteed good time.Bookouture Publishing is starting to really kick butt in the thriller genre, the books that I have gotten from them are some of the best that I've read lately. (I have another one for a different ser...

    Those who deny freedom to others, deserve it not for themselves” ― Abraham Lincoln, Complete Works - Volume XII. Here we are at book 7 in the unmissable series featuring DI Kim Stone, and yet again, Angela Marsons is unflinching in her determination to accurately portray the gritty, more seedier side of life with her usual expertise. Her 7th offering is as fresh as her first.On a bitterly cold Christmas Day, a baby is found abandoned, whilst ...

    The baby boy was around three months old and well looked after; a healthy child. But when he was discovered abandoned on an extremely cold night at the door to Detective Kim Stone’s police station, the search for his mother began immediately. Within hours though, Kim was called to the site of a murder – the young prostitute had been brutally savaged – Kim’s protective instincts went on full alert…It was soon obvious that the murder wasn...

    Kim, I feel your pain. When she discovers an abandoned baby outside police headquarters, Kim panics. She’s got about the same level of maternal instinct and skills as I do, which is to say none. The story involves not only the abandoned baby but a series of murders of prostitutes and possible illegal immigrants being forced to work as slave Labor. Kim’s team struggles to solve all the crimes. Angela Marsons remains one of my favorite mystery ...

    This is the 7th book in the DI Kim Stone series by the excellent author Angela Marsons.After first discovering the work of author Angela Marsons back in January 2015 I have read everything she has released and found that they are all written to such a high standard. This series is so well paced and the characters grow with each book in the series.In this novel Detective Kim Stones investigations start when a young prostitute is found murdered on ...

    I ran out of stars for Angela Marsons' Kim Stone series many books back, so with book seven being even better than the last one, what more is there to say?Based on other series with a similar style to this one that I’ve read in the past, I should be getting bored with this series by now, but I’m not, and no where near to being so. Marsons continues to develop her characters in interesting and believable ways. We see not only Kim’s character...
  • Emma
    Cleverly plotted, funny in parts, and horrifyingly real in depicting the grooming of young women into sex work, this book feels bang up to date. Marsons delves into contemporary social issues like modern slavery, debt, and criminal gangs. Yet Kim and her team seem to be working together even more effectively after they have been so recently and harshly tested, they attack all aspects of this tangled web with verve and intelligence. As always, an ...

The disturbing investigation will bring Kim Stone face to face with someone from her own horrific childhood. Three more sex workers are are killed and each death is more violent than the last.

  • Annie
    Actual rating 4.5*Broken Bones is the first book that I have read in the D.I. Kim Stone series. This was an excellent read and can be read as a stand alone novel. The characters descriptions are all great, so you soon get to know who's who. Not sure why Stacey was using 'ay' in her dialogue and this was used a number of times 'I ay .....' and 'we ay .....' - does anyone talk like that these days?The storyline in addition to murder, incorporated t...
  • Susan
    Amazingly, this is the seventh title featuring D.I. Kim Stone, and her team, and this series just gets better and better. The more I read about Kim, Bryant, Dawson, Stacey and the other characters, the more I like them. This novel starts in the Black Country on Christmas Day, but you can forget goodwill to all men, or, indeed, young girls. This novel deals with some very contemporary, and hard hitting themes, including modern day slavery, illegal...

    There are so many Crime detective series on the market that it’s almost impossible to keep up with them all. There are a few series that come high or hell water I wouldn’t miss the latest instalment of and Angela Marsons Detective Kim Stone series is one of them. I was so excited to get my hands on a copy of Broken Bones that I didn’t even read the book description, but then I have such faith in this author’s ability to deliver a riveting...

    Book 7 of the series and there are no signs of slowing down. Kim Stone and her team are back solving the crimes.. there is an abandoned baby, illegal immigrants, missing teenagers and murdered prostitutes. I love that Stacey has a bigger role in this books for a positive reason and that the team are as strong as ever. Thank you Angela Marsons... it was an absolute pleasure to read and review this book via NetGalley and Bookouture... I hope that b...

    Broken Bones is like playing Crack-the-Whip without the grass stains!Thank you Netgalley, Book Outre, and Angela Marsons for the ARC.DI Kim Stone just keeps getting better & better. She's still a real kick-ass, square-peg in a round hole character, but her soft/human side really started to shine through in Broken Bones. While this could be read as a stand-alone book, the previous 6 books in the series should be read to fully appreciate her develo...

The murder of a young prostitute and a baby found abandoned on the same winter night signals the start of a disturbing investigation for Detective Kim Stone – one which brings her face to face with someone from her own horrific childhood. This is the seventh book in this series, and once again Angela Marsons did not disappoint. I actually feel that each book becomes stronger and the story lines more...

    BROKEN BONES showcases perfectly the genius of Angela Marsons’ writing. She effortlessly holds the reader in the palm of her hand from start to finish. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll cringe in horror and gasp at the gritty realism of difficult issues that the author treats with sensitivity and real insight while managing to challenge our society’s often stereotypical views.From the moment I began reading BROKEN BONES, Book 7 in the DI...

    As soon as I read the name KIM, I just about realised how much I had missed the feisty but caring Detective and her team..Broken Bones is a little different than the previous six novels from Marsons, as this one has a small baby at the core.The hardships of the girls decent into prostitution is true to life and very hard to read.Marsons is brilliant at the cold hard reality of life and with Kim Stone, she nurtures her topics and tells it as it is...

    This is the seventh in the DCI Kim Stone series and another cracking read. A baby is left at the police station, a young girl is killed and the team are investigating prostitution, possible illegal immigration and human trafficking. Nothing is ever simple, the answers never cut and dried and Kim and her team struggle to keep their professional distance. Things come close to home sometimes and they have to listen to their gut instincts. ‘What wo...

    I have this book on pre-order but when it popped up on Netgalley I just couldn't resist requesting it. I am a huge fan of Angela Marsons and have read every one of her books, she is a master of her trade and this book the seventh in the Kim Stone series is one of the the best books I have ever read. There's lot's going on and the team of Kim, Bryant, Dawson and Stacey plus support staff are working flat out. At the beginning of the book Kim is l...
  • Renita D'Silva
    Wow! This author raises the bar with every book! This book is perfection, a masterpiece and I don't know what I could write here that would do the book justice. So all I'd like to say is, if you haven't read this author, what are you waiting for? Her books are not only top notch crime novels, every one brilliant and unputdownable, pacy and thrilling, but they are also a social commentary on the issues facing Britain today. She writes with heart a...

    Broken Bones is the seventh Kim Stone book, and whilst I feel like I’m about to repeat myself because I’ve ran out of ways to say how much I love Kim and her creator, Angela Marsons, I’m just going to go ahead and repeat myself anyway. Without doubt I can say that this series is now my all-time favourite crime series (and I’ve already said in the past that Kim Stone is my favourite fictional detective ever, and that still holds true here)...
