As the body count rises, Kim needs to stop the murderer before they strike again. But to catch the killer, can Kim confront the demons of her own past before it’s too late?-Goodreads
Review: This is book #1 in a series introducing DI Kim Stone (tough as nails, doesn't like to get close to anyone) and her team. Kim reminded me of the British version of Detective DD Warren-albeit Kim has a more tragic backstory. They are both hard as nails and willing to do whatever it takes to solve a case. I think this was a strong start to a series and I liked the mystery although it was predicable.
