I wish to thank Net Galley, Bookouture Publishing, and Ms. Angela Marsons for an ARC of Lost Girls in exchange for an unbiased review.

Well, I am dumbfounded. She did it. Ms. Marsons continues to raise the bar with each of her brilliant Kim Stone novels. Amazingly, Lost Girls (#3) is better than Evil Games (#2), which is better than her debut thriller Silent Scream (#1). And Silent Scream is a killer book!!! What does that make Lost Girls??? I can tell you one thing: there are not enough stars ou

I’ve loved all of the Angela Marsons’ Kim Stone series that I’ve read. Thanks to netgalley, I got hooked on her latter books and never got around to reading all of her earlier ones. I’m now rectifying that mistake.

Kidnapped children are standard fare in mystery novels. But the idea of two children taken, with the families pitted against each other in a bidding war to see which is allowed to return, that’s something new and different. And darker. It would be dark and twisted regardless, but thes

They say that music can raise the soul with passion, but words can dance in your mind, and create a scenic description of another place in time, both believable and lasting. After having read this amazing book, “Lost Girls” by Angela Marsons, the third instalment in the DS Kim Stone series, I am at a loss for words. Her books just keep getting better and better. I can only hope that my review can do this book justice. I will try.

Angela Marsons takes us right into the heart of the places that are pivotal in this story of child abduction - the police investigation room, the parents homes, the kidnappers HQ, and of course, the place where the girls are held. It goes without saying that THIS place in particular is a truly unsettling, terrifying one. The girls knew that whenever they heard footsteps coming down the stairs, that something very unpleasant would occur. The sensation of being there, was so real, that just imagin ...more

Angela Marsons and D.I. Kim Stone, I will follow you anywhere.

And follow I did. I crept behind the tight twist of tension page by page. You know what I'm talking about. When your stomach muscles clench as if someone were poised over you with the tautness of a rubberband. And that rubberband is stretched so near your delicate skin. Just waiting. SNAP!

I just love this series!

Two little girls are abducted from a leisure center and both girls are friends. The kidnappers leave a text message that one child will be left alive and the other girl will be dead. In a past kidnapping this ended up to be true. DI Kim Stone is on the case. I really like Kim. I think her detective skills are great. There are lot of twists and turns. The suspense keeps you turning the pages.

It did have me trying to predict the villain. It took me awhile to figure it out.

Despite the fact that i'd preordered this book, as soon as I saw it on Netgalley, I knew i'd have to try and get it. Thankfully, I was approved quickly. I downloaded it this morning and finished it in the same day.

I just couldn't wait to see more of DI Kim Stone.

My expectations were high. The book did not let me down.

I don't tend to write long reviews for Marsons' books. Probably because they'd be too embarassingly gushing. I'll write this piece of enthusiam now and return with a full review o

You just can't go wrong by picking up a book by Angela Marsons, after reading and loving the first two books in this great series I knew that this one would not let me down and it most certainly did not. Terrific!

I really like the plot ideas that Angela comes up with, there is always a little twist, a tweak that makes the plot that little bit more special, basically you get reeled in very early and the book keeps it's grip on you until the very last word is read on the page. I always read Angela

How much do you love your daughter? Measure it in pounds. Healthy competition brings out the best in people. The couple that offers the highest amount will see their daughter again. The losing couple will not. These are the rules and they will not change. I will be in touch. Make no mistake. One child will die.

Angela Marsons stormed onto the UK crime scene this year and gained millions of fans in the process. This is the third in the highly anticipated Kim Stone series. It is a thrill to get my hands on Lost Girls and spend a few more hours in the company of the intriguing Kim Stone.

Absolutely heart-stoppingly, heart-poundingly brilliant!!

Detective Inspector Kim Stone was shocked to be told she was heading the latest case – the abduction of two nine year old girls warranted higher than herself she thought; but it was the mother of one of the missing girls; a person from Kim’s long ago (and deeply buried) past who wanted Kim’s grim determination to bring back their girls.

Best friends Charlie and Amy had been taken from the local swim centre; the media and force black out w

Lost Girls is the 3rd book in the D.I. Kim Stone series.
When I started this, I had already read book 1, Silent Scream and book 2, Evil Games three weeks ago. So that’s 3 books by Angela Marsons in three weeks!!

I thought to myself, “Ginger, you’re going to burn yourself out on these books and characters. You might want to slow down.”

The 3rd book in the D.I. Kim Stone series by the excellent Angela Marsons.
I was introduced to this series when they first came out and was amazed at the exceptionally high standard of writing by a new writer. The books are packed full of excitement, twists and turns and show more than a touch of sensitivity and understanding when dealing with some of the dark subjects in the books.

Kim Stone is an excellent strong character, whose flaws and foibles allow the author plenty of opportunities to dev

I so love this author and series! Angela Marsons writes stories that pull you in, take you on a roller coaster ride of emotions and then leaves you with a satisfaction of justice served, but a hunger for the next story.

Lost Girls is about a subject that terrifies all parents, the abduction of their child. This plot is even more twisted because the kidnappers always take two girls and tell the parents that the couple that pays the most will get their daughter back and the other daughter will be k

This is another wonderful Kim Stone book. I love the repartee between Kim and Bryant, and it was a nice counter to the seriousness inside the war room. I liked the addition of Matt Ward, the negotiator, and hope he has a future in this series.

I believe a kidnapping must be one of the most difficult crimes to investigate; there's not much that can be done when there are no witnesses and no forensics at the scene. The police, waiting for contact, are at the mercy of the abductors. I was curious as

Riveting, Supsensful, Tense!!

If you decide to read this book, and I highly recommend it, you might want to clear your calendar because once you pick it up it is hard to put down. Each book in the series seems to get better. This is the third book in the Detective Kim Stone series. If you haven't read any of the books in this series I recommend starting with Silent Scream as the characters develop in each book.

I think what I like the most about Marson's writing style is that she doesn't take liberties with shock value plot lines and over the top characters.

So here we are, the third outing for Detective Inspector Kim Stone in Lost Girls.

An abduction of young girls, Amy and Charlie, from their local leisure centre in broad daylight is what starts off proceedings. But this can be no 'run of the mill' kidnapping. Oh no, not in Ms Marson's imagination! This is a particularly nasty and cruel abduction that will leave the reader shuddering at the thought of it. We know from the blurb that two families will be played off one another for the return of thei
