Evil Games by Angela Marsons @WriteAngie @JanCramervoice @bookouture #BeatTheBacklist2020

Evil Games
Detective Inspector Kim Stone and her team begin by taking down a child molester, in his own home. He’s the father of two who is beyond being suspected of sexually assaulting his 8-year old daughter. Next they’re called to the scene of the murder of a convicted rapist and unfortunately the primary suspect is his victim. However, something seems off about it to Kim and it eventually pits her against what will be her most formidable challenge. Dr. Alexandra (Alex) Thorne is a psychiatrist who may be playing much more than mind games.

I’ve read a lot of evil in my crime fiction but Alex North has made my top ten list. I’m not prepared to see Kim Stone be off balance, questioning her instincts but here she is doing just that. As the cases start piling up with patients tied to Alex, Kim just can’t shake off that gut instinct that we are all born with. However, it doesn’t help that she’s alone in her thinking.

This is the most aptly named story and I was mesmerized, not only because the story was downright intriguing but because I was worried for Kim. It went down twisty, mind scary paths, which all led to one exciting conclusion. It wasn’t all hard angles, though, as there is a nice and warm side story that just feels good. As if this wasn’t enough, there’s a big surprise at the end that was a jaw dropper. In retrospect, the clues were there but I’m not Kim Stone. I loved everything about this one, even my discomfort, made even more acute by the fantastic narrator. I’m beginning to understand the hype about this series and I will continue listening to the stories going forward.

        1. I lead the book discussions. We read one book a month, in order. Then I post 12-15 questions for discussion in a group set up for these purposes. You have no idea how much fun it is to talk about a book like this with others who are reading it at the same time. I’ve got four of these going on right now.


        2. Whoa… That’s amazing. Is this on Goodreads. I was a part of traveling sisters but it got to be so confusing that I left it. Since I blog from phone in fact, I only use the phone for everything, I didn’t understand this concept. Will check yours out. Can I have the link?

  1. Oh, I’ve read this one, I read the first two in this series, and enjoyed them. Though I bet it’s even better to listen to them and get creeped out with a great narrator setting the scene.

  2. I think I may have seen this one, might even own something in this series but I haven’t read it yet. Anyway, I’ll have to go check so I can get it onto the plan soon! Excellent review!

  3. This must be one of the few cases, where I’ve read a book before you! I am so glad you enjoyed it, I find it’s a great series. As far as I remember I only made it to book 4 (I don’t quite have your persistence and systematic approach when it comes to series) but I mean to get back to it at some point. Great review, Jonetta!

  4. Wonderful review Jonetta. I also enjoyed this one, but need to continue with this series. I did not know they were available on audiobook, but will have to listen to a couple to see what I think.
