About Evil Games
Published: 26th January 2017 – Paperback by Zaffre (first published May 29th 2015)
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.
I first discovered Angela Marsons in December 2015 following a recommendation of her books through a Facebook group. Having read the synopsis for the first in the series, Silent Scream, I purchased all 3 as I could tell from the start that they were ‘me’ books. I then proceeded to read the first 2 back to back which is pretty unheard of for me, and then the 3rd book a couple of weeks later.
These books do need reading in sequence (and it really isn’t a chore reading them all!), because whilst the actual story line in each book is standalone, the back stories are important to truly understand DI Kim Stone and her team.
Evil Games is the second instalment and was originally published in May 2015, Bonnier Zaffre are now bringing the print copies to the reading world.
Whilst Kim is a strong, confident, ballsy woman – she is also still traumatised by her childhood and this is drawn out in this plot. In Evil Games we learn so much about Kim and the demons that continue to haunt her – however a sociopath uses this information as part of her twisted experiments to see how much she can manipulate a situation and sit back to watch the consequences.
This book is brilliant and builds upon the brilliant character that Marsons introduced through Silent Scream. This book is such a page turner, I felt that I had full access to the warped mind of this sociopath but was powerless to stop her…..so I just had to keep reading!
A fantastic combination of psychology and a murder investigation!
