Play Dead Book Review
Another brilliant read in the addictive Kim Stone series by Angela Marson's.
In Play Dead, Kim and her team are sent on research purposes to a body farm in Westerley where a team of scientists are harvesting dead bodies for scientific research. On Kim's arrival a body of a young woman is discovered on the site, a body that isn't part of the research. An investigation is launched to find a new, unique serial killer. A few days after the discovery of the young woman, a fresh victim is found on the site, but this young girl is still alive. Finally armed with a witness the investigation steps up a pace. Are these women being targeted for a specific purpose, is there a link between them?
What I really liked in Play Dead is that we see a different side to the reporter, Tracey Frost. Marson's explores her background in this latest installment and a very different character emerges to the one you thought you know.
Play Dead is another gripping page turner and the final scenes as the book drew to a close had me on the edge of my seat. Marson's always leaves you with a satisfying end. Thank you to Bookouture and NetGalley for the early review copy.
