Marsons created this group of people that I looked forward to meeting up with again. Not only did it seem like catching up, we saw more of them, who they are. **SPOILER** I loved it that Kim saved Barney. She opened up her heart to him. But Kim did not change... she did not become sappy, whiny, lovey-dovey. She still was the same Kim. Just better. Kim's progression has to be slow or I think the emotions flooding back might kill her. **END SPOILER**
I like the fact that Kim is ready to pursue Alex, even knowing this might not turn out well for her. I have seen things in people that no one else sees. I don't understand it. And when things come to light you are vindicated, but it is getting to the point of vindication. Kim sinks her teeth in and won't let go.
Evil Games really has two cases being worked simultaneously. Both are gripping cases. Once again Angela Marsons has managed to surprise me at the very end! With most books I am able to guess the culprit right away. Not much surprise there. Silent Scream was one of the first books, in a long while, that totally surprised me. I was captivated until the very end. I was cocky and was sure I knew who did it. But, throughout the book I had to reassess. Then I narrowed it down again just to have the rug ripped out from under me. I was pleasantly surprised yet again! Thank you Angela Marsons! Boy, I did not see that coming! Of course we knew Alex was a psycho, we new what she was doing as she was doing it... It was 'how would Kim Stone get her?' that was so intriguing & suspenseful. But, the Dunn case really threw me! We saw the case solved, but then we realised it was not completely solved. That was a hard, draining case.
I really like that Angela Marsons saved dogs in both books. First Bryant, now Kim. I cried when Bryant walked back in that apartment and brought the mommy and her babies out with him. I was sick at the conditions of this dog and her crying babies. It really was a beautiful moment. So, here's Barney... inside I was begging Kim to stop them, don't let them take him! I am injured and was not feeling well and my 18 year old son had to help me in to bed. When he asked if he could do anything else I pointed at my Kindle and asked if he would read the next chapter of Evil Games to me. It was the chapter where Kim goes to check on Barney.... of course I cried! It was a great chapter to end with. And then when I picked up reading again I loved how Barney wiggled his way up to Kim. I grew up terrified of these beautiful creatures up to my very first moment with a puppy we adopted after my children and I lost their father. It was a moment with just me and Cricket. My life changed. Looking in his eyes opened up a whole new world for me. Reading Kim's reaction to Barney brought that all back.
I think if anyone really enjoyed Silent Scream they can't help but enjoy Evil Game. And if anyone is looking at this book who hasn't read Silent Scream I say purchase both, put this one aside in your library, read Silent Scream first. I pre-ordered this book and was so happy when it came in. I wish there were more! I will wait patiently for Angela Marsons to finish a 3rd installment. Until then I will read other books from her.
I would like her to find real love but don't expect it to last long. And anyone that manages to get close to her needs to have a lot of patience.
Alex was so evil I wanted to get into the story myself and tell everyone what a fraud she was. But knew Kim would figure it out in the end.
My favorite part is when Barney wanted to be close to her even though she wanted nothing to do with him and I actually cried when she decided to go get him and bring him home. Dogs give that unconditional love and that's what Kim needed even if she didn't think so.
Yes I definitely want someone like Kim fighting for me. Loved this book and am on to Book 3. ( I already read Book 1)
I am on the 86th page, after two weeks.
Great read when you go to bed and want something to put you down to sleep sooner rather than later :-)
Don't think will be able to finish it, and definitely won't even start the third.
DI Kim Stone is an intriguing person; probably not so nice to know but an excellent lead character. However, in this book she seemed to get most clues from gut feelings instead of clever police work with her team. I would have preferred more interaction with her workforce, and more development of their characters, and far less of the ramblings of the loopy psychiatrist, who tended to slow the story.
However, I am hooked on Angela Marsons and Kim Stone and will continue with the series, for me, Ms Marsons is the best of the newer writers I have come across.
