So, I had been dying with impatience waiting for Robert to write the next instalment in the Erika Foster series (still waiting?!), and I saw that he was creating a new series: Kate Marshall. I just HAD to get my hands on it. Social media has been taunting me for months with advertising for this new series. I was over the moon when Sphere/Little Brown book sent me a copy! Nine Elms is released next month – so make sure it’s on your November TBR – you won’t regret it!
Nine elms by Robert Bryndza
Genre: Mystery, Thriller
BUG rating: 4.5/5
Overall: The perfect book for Erika Foster fans. It has all the same vibes – but MORE. I actually think this is Robert Bryndza’s best book yet. I was hooked on private investigator Kate Marshall. She is perfectly flawed, struggling to run from the demons of her past. Her character was wonderfully crafted, there was just enough character development as Bryndza took us through alternating timelines to paint the picture of the Kate of today. I loved the characters so much. Her assistant/side kick Tristan is a great addition/and so much fun! Their chemistry is great. The story… oh the story! It was full of many gruesome scenes – it’s definitely not for the faint hearted! It definitely managed to get me out of my thriller slump, and this was the perfect addition to my October reads #spooktober!In 3 words: Chilling, Twisted and Addictive!
This is something we’ll debate during the course. Nature versus nurture. Are serial killers born or made? And to answer your question … I want to… no have to believe it’s the latter.
A DETECTIVE WHO WOULD STOP AT NOTHING
Kate Marshall was a rising star in the London Metropolitan police force. Young, ambitious and with a keen sense of justice, she solved several high-profile murder cases.
UNTIL A KILLER STOPPED HER IN HER TRACKS
But when Kate was tasked with tracking down a vicious serial killer, even her sharp instincts couldn’t help her find him – until he found her.
NOW, HE’S BACK FOR MORE
Sixteen years after her narrow escape, Kate lives a quiet life on the English coast, though her years with the police are still with her. And when one day she receives a letter from someone in her past, she is pulled back into the twisted mind of a murderer she knows only too well – and into a case only she can solve.
I received a free advanced copy of this book from Sphere/Little Brown Book in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. All opinions are my own.
