Angela Marsons fans will definitely be intrigued with Six Graves, the 16th installment of the bestselling DI Kim Stone series where Kim and her team are called to the scene of what appears to be a murder-suicide with a husband and two children being shot by the mother, then her suicide. In addition, there was a small fire in the kitchen bin noticed by a neighbor, who becomes a suspect. A cruel psychopath named Symes, who loves to torture children has escaped from prison and is looking for Kim to pay her back for rescuing two children he was ready to torture and murder as well, as putting out one of his eyes. His only goal is to find Kim and torture her slowly to death.
Anyone who follows this series is well-acquainted with the protagonist, Kim Stone, who isn’t particularly likeable and has few real friends because of her brusque manner. Her team, consisting of several very competent detectives, as well as a coroner and a crime team love her because she is a leader and gets the job done. These characters are believable and seem like real people – not friends, exactly, but a team that works together to get results. Marsons also tells the story with constant building suspense and plenty of ups and downs to keep readers on the edge. Marsons’ books are absolutely unputdownable, and while there is a lot to them, they will be read quickly because there is too much happening to let them rest.
All told, this is another excellent installment to the series, and readers will love the surprise ending. They will especially look forward to the subsequent novels to come.
