Dying Truth by Angela Marsons
My rating: 4 Stars
D.I. Kim Stone is now responsible for the case at hand, that of the apparent suicide of a teenager. The sharp-witted Kim quickly realizes that it was not a suicide at all. Her instincts are spot-on and she fights vigorously to get to the bottom of this brutal act. Her fight becomes incredibly challenging right after another child is found dead. This takes place at the exclusive Heathcrest Academy.
What a series of twists this story takes! For starters, Kim and her team discover secret clubs at the school. How far-reaching these clubs are is beyond the scope of anything they could have ever expected. The more I read this story, the more I became truly engaged because of the different roads the investigation took in the course of identifying the killer.
When I picked Dying Truth for review I had no idea that this book would be utterly impossible to put down. There aren’t enough hours in the day, but I will make time to read Angela Marsons' backlist because her writing is absolutely stellar. Although I am quite eager to read the previous books in this series, I think this book serves well as a standalone read. Despite suffering a shock at the conclusion of this book, I quickly turned the pages hoping to see an excerpt from the next book in the series! Yes, I was that impressed.
Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC to review.
