After 6 successful crime novels featuring Erika Foster, Robert Bryndza comes with a new series, introducing private investigator Kate Marshall.As a young detective with great potential and a promising career, Kate had an affair with one of her colleagues only to discover soon after that he was the notorious Nine Elms serial killer Kate manages to put him behind the bars but realises too late that she is pregnant with his baby Fast forward 15 years and this is where the book 1 starts Kate is no longer with the police She teaches criminology at a university and tries to get sober for her son who is in the custody of Kate s parents.The Nine Elms serial killer has been in prison the whole time when girls start disappearing and being murdered in almost identical way to the Nine Elms murders Police seem to be clueless and so Kate and her uni assistant decide to do some investigation on their own.I have a soft spot for Erika so it was always going to be hard for a new detective to compete with her Like Erika, Kate has an eventful past that still haunts her Is a bit too much going on there alcoholism, child with a serial killer That s what I was thinking at first but as the story progressed I was slowly swayed and pretty much onboard with everything by the end of it As per the author s usual style, this is a gripping but gruesome novel with a number of unexpeted twists Overall, 4 stars for Kate Marshall and her first novel Many thanks to Little Brown Books for my review copy in exchange for an honest review Anyone who knows me, knows what a huge fan I am of this authors books I absolutely love his Detective Erika Foster series so I could hardly contain my excitement when I heard he had a brand new crime series coming out Now I won t lie, when I picked up this book I was filled with not only excitement but with a bit of trepidation also Where as with the other series I knew mainly what to expect knowing the main characters but with this one, it s all very new with new characters and new setting but I needn t have worried as after reading the first chapter, I was well and truly hooked.Boy, oh boy, oh boy Where do I start with this amazing piece of crime fiction There is just so much to LOVE about it Honestly, don t take my word for it, read it for yourself Kate is one hell of a protagonist A former detective trying to get on with her life although she constantly lives under the shadow of her past.The manner that the victims are killed in this book were pretty shocking to say the least A couple of times I could feel myself turning a bit queasy at what I was reading Even thinking about it now sends shivers down my spine On top of that there are a few characters who literally made my skin crawl These are some seriously messed up people and whilst they made me feel sick by some of their actions, oh my goodness they really just take the story to another level.In Nine Elms, Robert Bryndza has delivered a masterpiece in crime fiction It is dark, gripping, nail biting and oh so wonderfully twisted Definitely not one for the feint hearted but for me it showed me a new side to this authors talents and I blooming well loved it For me this is way up there with Silence of the Lambs Couldn t have hoped for a better start to a brand new series and going by this one, well I think us readers need to hold on tight as we are in for one hell of a ride.My thanks to Sphere Books for an advanced readers copy of this book All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway. I love Robert Bryndza novels whether they are his Detective Erika Foster series or his humorous Coco Pinchard series so I was really looking forward to the first book in the Kate Marshall series.Sixteen years ago, Kate Marshall was a rising star in the London Metropolitan police force Young, ambitious and driven, with a talent for getting into the minds of criminals, she solved several high profile murder cases When Kate was tasked with tracking down a vicious serial killer her instinct and ability to immerse herself in violent worlds couldn t help her find him but he found her Years later Kate now lives on the quiet English coast enjoying a much calmer life until she receives a letter from someone in her past, all her memories flood back to the murderer she is so aware of and a case she is determined to solve.This is another outstanding novel by this talented author and yet another series I will be hooked to Great strong characters, gripping plots and so well written.I would like to thank both Net Galley and Little, Brown Book Group UK for supplying a copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review.
