Blood Lines
She’s ba-a-a-ck!

DI Kim Stone and her team are investigating the stabbing murder of a well-regarded social worker that’s presenting a tough challenge for them. When a second murder occurs with similar characteristics but no other apparent relationship, Kim needs her full, undivided attention to solve these cases. But she’s highly distracted because her very real nemesis, incarcerated psychologist Alex Thorne, is up to no good from behind prison walls.

I was intimidated by Alex Thorne when she first appeared in Evil Games, finding her one of the most diabolical characters I’d encountered in fiction. Somehow I knew we hadn’t heard the last of her and, sure enough, she’s back at it, getting in Kim’s head like no one else is able to do. While the murder cases were interesting and true puzzlers, I was distracted by what was going on with Alex and Kim. Believe me, it was not a given that Kim would win this encounter without residual consequences and she made lots of missteps.

This is a riveting story that will not let you go. I cannot even comment on the strength or substance of the murder investigations as I was so wrapped up in the sideshow. It was as outrageous as we would expect from the manipulative Ms. Thorne and just as gnarly as the chief cases. And, as usual, the narrator heightened my anxiety with her exceptional performance. It was a relief when this one ended because my nerves were shot. Yes, I’m loving it!

  1. Ah, one of your fav authors, and I like the idea of Alex Thorne being in this one as I did read EVIL GAMES, and she was, as you say, a really good nemesis for Stone. I really do need to get back into this series.

  2. I know exactly what you mean about Alex Thorne. I haven’t read or listened to this one yet, but I hope to get back to this series next month. Sounds chilling. Wonderful review Jo.
