Lost Girls by Angela Marsons

Blurb - Two girls go missing. Only one will return.
The couple that offers the highest amount will see their daughter again. The losing couple will not. Make no mistake. One child will die.

When nine-year-old best friends Charlie and Amy disappear, two families are plunged into a living nightmare. A text message confirms the unthinkable; that the girls are the victims of a terrifying kidnapping.

And when a second text message pits the two families against each other for the life of their children, the clock starts ticking for D.I. Kim Stone and the squad.

Seemingly outwitted at every turn, as they uncover a trail of bodies, Stone realises that these ruthless killers might be the most deadly she has ever faced. And that their chances of bringing the girls home alive, are getting smaller by the hour…

Untangling a dark web of secrets from the families’ past might hold the key to solving this case. But can Kim stay alive long enough to do so? Or will someone’s child pay the ultimate price?

My thoughts -
What can I say, Angela Marsons has done it again.
Lost Girls see's the return of Kim Stone the determined, head strong and committed detective.

In this book Kim and her team have a very disturbing case to try and solve, involving two nine year old girls who have been abducted with a ransom and the threat only one will return.
This book isn't one for the faint hearted and with all it's twists and turns had me gripped from the very first page.

Kim's a brilliant character and I love how we get to know a bit more about her in each book.

I loved Silent Scream and Evil Games and I'm glad I read them before this one although this can be read as a stand alone book but I'd highly recommend reading all three as they are just fantastic.

Thanks to Bookouture and Netgalley for the copy to review. Can't wait to read more from Angie soon.
