The Blurb

The truth was dead and buried… until now.

When a collection of human bones is unearthed during a routine archaeological dig, a Black Country field suddenly becomes a complex crime scene for Detective Kim Stone.

As the bones are sorted, it becomes clear that the grave contains more than one victim. The bodies hint at unimaginable horror, bearing the markings of bullet holes and animal traps.

Forced to work alongside Detective Travis, with whom she shares a troubled past, Kim begins to uncover a dark secretive relationship between the families who own the land in which the bodies were found.

But while Kim is immersed in one of the most complicated investigations she’s ever led, her team are caught up in a spate of sickening hate crimes. Kim is close to revealing the truth behind the murders, yet soon finds one of her own is in jeopardy - and the clock is ticking. Can she solve the case and save them from grave danger – before it’s too late?

My Thoughts

Dead Souls is the 6th instalment in the DI Kim Stone series and for my money is by far the best. I absolutely adored this book, everything about it was just right. The books are all must reads for crime fans but this one blew me away.
Kim is taken away from her comfort zone, in fact all of the team are and the results make for a superb story that had me gripped all the way through. There was not one superfluous word throughout the book, just full on brilliant story telling. The story revolves around Hate Crime and whilst the team are all working on separate cases they all come together to a fantastic crescendo of an ending.

If you have read Kim Stone before you will love this, If you havent I am envious of you because you have 6 books to catch up on whilst I have to kick my heals waiting for the 7th. So what are you waiting for? its a no brainer, £1.99 on Kindle is a steal. Buy it.
