I have NEVER experienced a bookhangover like this before. It’s almost two weeks since I read Dying Truth by Angela Marsons and I still can’t seem to put the words together to write my review. I haven’t read a book since I finished it, either. That’s a long time for a bookworm like me! In fact, I’m sat writing this with tears in my eyes.
Here’s the blurb …

My thoughts …
The DI Kim Stone series is by far my favourite of the police procedurals, surpassing Peter James’ DCI Roy Grace by a mile.
Dying Truth even saw me immortalised as the cellmate of everyone’s favourite villain, Dr Alex Thorne! I’m now forever a chavvy prisoner who adores our beloved sociopath!
Marsons’ is back with a bang and brings us another thriller of a read when the team investigate what appears to be a straightforward suicide but Kim’s spidey sense kicks in – she knows something isn’t right and she and her team won’t stop until they find out what that is.
I have loved and adored each and every book in this series. Each one brings something new, something different. It’s so clear that Marsons has an interest in the topics she chooses to write about and rather than bore the reader by rambling about her personal interests, she writes in such a masterful way that she draws you in and you can’t help but find it interesting too, what a genius!
Dying Truth is phenomenal.
Marsons is one of the bravest authors I know.
She has taken this series to a height that puts her up there with the greats; look out Patterson and James, Marsons is coming to get you.
I can’t say anymore other than buy it, NOW. You’ll thank me when you can manage to string a sentence together when you’ve finished.
The hugest of thanks to the author and the team at Bookouture for my review copy and for inviting me to take part in the blitz, what an honour!
About the author …
Angela Marsons is the author of the International Bestselling DI Kim Stone series and her books have sold more than 2 million in 2 years.
She lives in the Black Country with her partner, their cheeky Golden Retriever and a swearing parrot.
She first discovered her love of writing at Junior School when actual lessons came second to watching other people and quietly making up her own stories about them. Her report card invariably read “Angela would do well if she minded her own business as well as she minds other people’s”.
After years of writing relationship based stories (The Forgotten Woman and Dear Mother) Angela turned to Crime, fictionally speaking of course, and developed a character that refused to go away.
She is signed to Bookouture.com for a total of 16 books in the Kim Stone series and her books have been translated into more than 27 languages.
Her last three books – Blood Lines, Dead Souls and Broken Bones – reached the #1 spot on Amazon on pre-orders alone.
