Their secrets would be buried, bound in blood ...Years later, a headmistress is found brutally strangled, the first in a spate of gruesome murders which shock the Black Country. But when human remains are discovered at a former children's home, disturbing secrets are also unearthed. D.I. Kim Stone fast realises she's on the hunt for a twisted individual whose killing spree spans decades. As the body count rises, Kim needs to stop the murderer before they strike again. But to catch the killer, can Kim confront the demons of her own past before it's too late?

Loved this book!! Can't wait to read more by Angela Marsons.

An easy, fast read. Really not interested in Marson's sarcastic conversations between her colleagues - just fillers - and those sections were easily skimmed over. Her main detective's speech pattern reminded me of Ann Cleeves' detective, Vera. Plot was interesting - instead of finding buried gold treasure in a vacant field, 3 teenage bodies are discovered that have been in the ground for at least 10 years. Ending was partially as expected, but then came the surprise. Might try another one of her books.
