The dead don't tell secrets... unless you listen.

The girl's smashed-in face stared unseeing up to the blue sky, soil spilling out of her mouth. A hundred flies hovered above the bloodied mess.

Westerley research facility is not for the faint-hearted. A 'body farm' investigating human decomposition, its inhabitants are corpses in various states of decay. But when Detective Kim Stone and her team discover the fresh body of a young woman, it seems a killer has discovered the perfect cover to bury their crime.

Then a second girl is attacked and left for dead, her body drugged and mouth filled with soil. It's clear to Stone and the team that a serial killer is at work, but just how many bodies will they uncover? And who is next?

As local reporter, Tracy Frost, disappears, the stakes are raised. The past seems to hold the key to the killer's secrets, but can Kim uncover the truth before a twisted, damaged mind claims another victim?

The latest utterly addictive thriller from the No.1 bestseller Angela Marsons.

    By Icemaiden33
    Ive read all the Kim stone books and each story has been very different but equally compelling. I only didn't give it five stars because it was probably my least favourite so far. But still an excellent book with lots of unexpected turns and I never came close to guessing the end. Kim is a fascinating character that's starting to thaw a little more each book, but please give her just a little personal happiness ...

    I really enjoy these books they are well written and keep you guessing until the end. The characters are great and I like that over time you find out a little bit more about them. With all of these books I have read in a couple of days as they are great page turners, I look forward to the next book.
