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 three more sex workers are murdered in quick succession, each death more violent than the last, Kim and her team realise 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.

This is another series that you need to check out if you love mysteries and thrillers! Kim Stone is one of my favourite literary characters!
Broken Bones follows 2 different stories. The first one is about an abandoned baby at the police station. There are many women coming to claim the baby, but none of their stories are aligning. The second story is about prostitutes getting killed. The sad part is that there aren’t too many people that care about these killings and there aren’t many leads that can be followed.
This series has no signs of slowing down, with the 7th novel being just as great as the earlier novels. I love catching up with Kim, Bryant, Stacey and Dawson. I love seeing them work together especially when past events haven’t been too kind to them. The mysteries were excellent and I really enjoyed that things weren’t as they seemed.
4 calculators out of a potential 5. Another great novel to one of my favourite series. Can’t wait for the next novel!
