Play Dead – Angela Marsons

Play Dead (D.I. Kim Stone #4) – Angela Marsons (2016)

Play Dead

4 Stars (4 / 5)

I like this series, I really do. But I don’t LOVE it. It doesn’t stay with me like some other series. I don’t know why. Maybe it’s Kim’s character, it’s defiantly not the writing which is great. I really can’t put my finger on it. But I do enjoy it, and for thriller fans this 4th novel surely will not disappoint.

Yes there is yet another serial killer, and it’s up to Miss Congeniality Kim and her team to figure out the pieces and put the puzzle together before more people die.

What I really did like about this one was the setting. Utterly fascinating! I never even knew that there were such things as “body farms” but of course it makes total sense. How do the scientists know how long it takes bodies to decompose in numerous settings? Because they test it! Of course! What an original idea for a setting, I was so impressed with it, even though, ewww gross!

I just don’t enjoy reading about Kim for some reason. I get she has issues and is all broody because of that, but she annoys me more often than not. I like the other characters, even though I wish there was a bit more spark.

It was a good story, but again, I figured out the twist too early. But I still enjoyed it.

Would I recommend Play Dead?

Yes absolutely! Even though the series doesn’t stay with me, it is a good thriller series that every thriller fan will surely enjoy. I will certainly read the others and have no doubt I will enjoy them too.

Big thanks to the author via netgalley for a copy of Play Dead for me to review.
