How far would you go to protect your darkest secrets?

When teenager Sadie Winter jumps from the roof of her school, her death is ruled as suicide – a final devastating act from a troubled girl. But then the broken body of a young boy is discovered at the same school and it’s clear to Detective Kim Stone that these deaths are not tragic accidents.

As Kim and her team begin to unravel a dark web of secrets, one of the teachers could hold the key to the truth. Yet just as she is about to break her silence, she is found dead. 

With more children’s lives at risk, Kim has to consider the unthinkable - whether a fellow pupil could be responsible for the murders. Investigating the psychology of children that kill brings the detective into contact with her former adversary, Dr Alex Thorne – the sociopath who has made it her life’s work to destroy Kim. 

Desperate to catch the killer, Kim finds a link between the recent murders and an initiation prank that happened at the school decades earlier. But saving these innocent lives comes at a cost – and one of Kim’s own might pay the ultimate price.

The utterly addictive new crime thriller from the Number One bestselling author – you will be gripped until the final shocking twist.

How on earth am I meant to review this?  I mean lets make this quick, if you are a fan of thrillers, heart stopping action, Angela Marsons, Kim Stone, Bookouture books, and want to be as opened mouthed as I am at the end of the book - then just make it a priority to read this one. 

Easily the best book in the series, some of it may work better if you have read the previous books in the series but at the heart of it is a fascinating set of circumstances leading to multiple deaths. 

I didn't have a clue who had done it,well I had one but I was so wrong, thankfully, and just wow.  This is police procedural at its best.  

Most of the book is focused on solving what is going on a a prestigious boarding school, after the first girl that dies is made to look like a suicide.  But if I say anything else about the plot I will spoil things completely, just trust me its a cracker. 

The writing is definitely the best yet, and the storyline well you can tell from this that I'm very impressed.  It is complex, intriguing, and the writing hooked me in completely.   I read the majority of this book in a few short hours not pausing for breathe.  

What I am though is very curious as to what the next book in the series will bring and I know I will be first in line to read it when its available. 

And if you didn't get the message at the top of this review, here is is put simply - Amazing book, best in the series and just wow! 

Thank you to Netgalley and Bookouture for this copy which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
