Lost Girls

Happy Saxophone Day!  The saxophone was invented around 1840 by Adolphe Sax. It was made of brass.  Adolphe invented eight types of saxophones. The saxophone has been an essential instrument in jazz bands.  

I just finished Angela Marson’s Lost Girls.  It is a D.I. Kim Stone Novel.  Two nine year old girls have been abducted from Old Hill Leisure Centre (British spelling).  Karen Timmins (one of the mums) has asked for Kim.  After getting the details, Kim insists on being the Officer in Charge of the case.  Kim will stop at nothing to get back Amy and Charlie (the little girls).  The kidnappers are pitting the parents against each other by making them bid (like an auction).  The highest bidder will get their child returned to them.  The team works to identify the kidnappers and find out where they are keeping the girls.   They have their work cut out for them if they are going to rescue these girls in time.

Lost Girls is a riveting novel.  It will hold your attention from the first page to the last.  It is a great, well-written story.  Angela Marson’s novels just keep getting better.  I give Lost Girls 5 out of 5 stars.  The only negative thing I have to say about Lost Girls is I wish the mystery had been a little more difficult.  I was able to figure out who the mastermind was behind the kidnapping early in the book.  However, that did not take away from my enjoyment of this novel (and I wanted to see if I was right).  Please be aware that there is extreme violence in this book.

The other book in the D.I. Kim Stone series are Silent Scream and Evil Games.  I received a complimentary copy of Lost Girls from NetGalley (and the publisher) in exchange for an honest review.

I am currently reading A Desperate Fortune by Susanna Kearsley. It is up for the Goodreads Historical Fiction Book of the Year (you can vote on  Have a evening (I will be watching Reign, Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries, and Grimm) and Happy Reading!
