Publisher's Summary

They thought they were safe. They were wrong.

The murder of a young prostitute and a baby found abandoned on the same winter night signals the start of a disturbing investigation for Detective Kim Stone - one which brings her face to face with someone from her own horrific childhood.

As more sex workers are murdered in quick succession, each death more violent than the last, Kim and her team realize that the initial killing was no one-off frenzied attack, but a twisted serial killer preying on the vulnerable.

At the same time, the search begins for the desperate woman who left her newborn baby at the station - but what looks like a tragic abandonment turns even more sinister when a case of modern slavery is uncovered.

The two investigations bring the team into a terrifying world of human exploitation and cruelty - and a showdown that puts Kim's life at risk as shocking secrets from her own past come to light.

Outstanding detectve novel by Angela Marsons

This is the 7th novel in the Detective Kim Stone series by Angela Marsons. Like almost all novels in the series Broken Bones easily qualifies for a 5 star rating. It is a very dark suspense mystery about a serial killer. The identification of the killer at the end of the book comes as a surprise to the listener. Woven into the story is a situation that can only be described as slavery.

British author Angela Marsons is among the elite writers of suspense mysteries in the world today. I have all 9 of her audio books in my Audible library and all are outstanding. British actress Jan Cramer narrates the Kim Stone series novels flawlessly.

Kim Stone is back as fierce as ever

I'm so glad there was another Kim Stone book!

This was a great read/listen. The audiobook was well done with an excellent narration by Jan Cramer.

Kim and her team are left an abandoned baby in the midst of the murder(s) of "sex workers" and a man found broken and dead. How these all come together - throw in some white slavers - form the basis of another good story by Angela Marsons. My only regret is that now I have to wait for Book 8.

Everything I hoped for in a thriller.

I like listening to audio books as I craft, this book made my hands fly through craftwork as the plot unfolded and I edged closer and closer to the edge of my seat. No good as a book for bedtime - too gripping a storyline and I listened to it well into my precious sleep time. I wish Kim had a little romance in her life tho.

Dreadful narration

I've managed, just, to listen to a few chapters but the narrator is , in my opinion, awful - surely the author isn't happy to hear her books narrated so badly?
This is the first in the series that I have tried to listen to - the rest I have read - and I am very disappointed with my purchase, does nobody check these Audible books for quality?
This narrator seems to be totally unable to imitate accents consistently or to vary tone or inflection so the characters all sound exactly the same.
Looking forward to reading it since the author is a favourite and I'll have no hesitation giving the book five stars.

Not a disappointment

Book 7, and as good as the others. I feel as if I personally know Kim Stone and her team. Once again the story is well written, quick paced and what I particularly enjoy is set in an area that I know well....What more can I ask for? Can't wait for book 8.

highly recommend

From the first sentence this book had me hooked. I have loved each one of the Kim Stone books and this one must be one of the best. Every time I read a Kim Stone book I think it is the best I've read so far. They have everything you could wish for and Angela Marsons is such a good writer she does not have to fill chapters with unnecessary sex and violence as so many books have today. I can't recommend this book enough

Fantastic

The characters in all of this series are superbly written and feel so real. The narrator is the best I have heard I would recommend any book narrated by her. I also recommend the to all readers to stop and read Angela Manson’s. Great series can’t wait for more.
