Deadly Fate is a British crime thriller set in the Midlands; this the 18th outing for DI Kim Stone and her team, and another solid mystery from an author who is somehow able to find new interesting issues to explore with each book. While it’s preferable to read the series in order, this would still work as a Stand-alone. This time, the plot is about psychics, and has the gang investigating a series of vicious murders, with a side story about a delusional stalker.

The body of a middle-aged woman is found in a cemetery, her face slashed. The person who discovered her is acting suspiciously, her step daughter did not like her, and each of the women at her last job are hiding something. Then another person in the same industry is killed and Kim realises they are hunting a killer with a very particular grudge – but can they find them before the next attack?

This is one of my favourite crime series and Kim Stone remains a brilliant heroine. As ever, I was kept in the dark about whodunnit, and was both entertained and gripped throughout. My one niggle was the behaviour of one regular character, whose actions didn’t make sense given how much they’ve gone through in previous instalments. That storyline is left open for the next book, and I look forward to finding out what happens. Thanks to NetGalley and Bookouture for the ARC; I am posting this honest review voluntarily.
