Description

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. What readers are saying about Play Dead 'Can I give 6 stars?

The Bookshelf Blog 'A thrilling, tense and nail biting read'Best Crime Books & More What readers are saying about Angela Marsons 'I'm a little bit speechless to be honest at just how incredible this book was... one of the best new crime authors of 2015, maybe even the decade' Book Addict Shaun 'I absolutely loved it! ... This one is one of the best crime thrillers I've read in a long time, and that includes mainstream authors such as James Patterson! I would seriously put this book in the same league.'
