I didn't get very far in Blood Lines before I had to set it aside. When Alex Thorne made her appearance I started to feel such anxiety. I already read what her character was capable of. I know what she did to Kim. I got caught up in trying to envision where this was all going to lead. There was just no way to guess. My curiosity won out over anxiety. I picked the book back up and read straight through, like usual.
Once again, Angela Marsons did not disappoint! I felt the anxiety seep off the page. My mind was boggled along with Kim, Bryant, Stace & Dawson. I missed the same things Kim did. They slipped right past my radar. Everything culminated to a truly thrilling end. As much as it feels like our favorite characters will move forward, it feels like some things came to an end.
I just want to make it a point to say I LOVE BARNEY!
Definitely read this series in order. Characters grow, they spill over from one book to the next and of course BARNEY has his origins story in there. It is a great series.
DI Kim Stone and DS Bryant are called to the scene of a murder at 2 a.m. A woman named Deanna Brightman has been stabbed to death in her car. She worked at Children’s Services. As the investigation begins, another voice from the past is back.
Dr. Alexandra Thorne makes a comeback in this book and she’s still up to her old tricks even though she is remanded to a fairly relaxed prison. Frustrated by what she sees as her attorney’s lack of action in freeing her, she makes her own plan. And, of course, that plan involves manipulating DI Stone to insanity. She’s having a grand old time in prison, manipulating the other prisoners and scheming.
The investigation of Mrs. Brightman’s death moves forward. Her husband seems truly upset, but her sister is more than a little off-putting. When another body in found in the woods, it steps up the investigation. Although nothing like Deanna Brightman, Maxine Wakeman has the same wound type and it looks to be the same weapon that killed her with a single stab wound. After speaking again to the part-time housekeeper of the Brightman’s, Kim and her team just might have a potential suspect.
After learning of the death of a seven-year old boy in the same manner, Kim and Bryant finally come up with the link they needed to move the case forward.
After an exciting denouement, the killer is caught. The identity of the killer came as a complete surprise to me.
This is a very well written and plotted novel. It starts out suspenseful which gradually increases throughout the novel. I appreciate the way the team gets along. There were a few bumps within the team in this book, but it all was smoothed out in the end. Ms. Marsons is a remarkable author, and I can hardly until I dig into the next in this series.
This is a villain who has made me think, and think deeply about how all of us are manipulated, and author Angela's descriptions of the ways Alex manipulates people bear considering- I actually underlined many passages in the book(and will watch in case anyone tries out these techniques on me!). I won't spoil it for anyone, but there are twists and turns I didn't see coming, even the very first pages had my heart pumping. I wasn't totally happy with the ending- if I had written it, all of Alex's victims would have visited her in her cell and had the party of all time.
The title of the book tells it all: this is all about families: I cannot spoil it but it works on multiple levels, and we get to learn more about Kim's family which is wonderful. This character has progressed as the books have progressed- from a bitter, almost one dimensional detective who lacked feeling , to a caring, compassionate woman whose very compassion sometimes makes her vulnerable. In book 1 Kim seemed headed for an ending like Jane Tennyson (sp?), Helen Mirren's great character in 'Prime Suspect', but thankfully Angela is going in a different direction and I can only expect some happiness for Kim in future books.
As long as Angela keeps writing about Kim Stone (and Barney keeps coming back to make an appearance), I'm in heaven. Thanks for a great read, and keep them coming!
