About The Book

Kate Marshall was a promising young police detective when she caught the notorious Nine Elms serial killer. But her greatest victory suddenly became a nightmare.
Fifteen years after those catastrophic, career-ending events, a copycat killer has taken up the Nine Elms mantle, continuing the ghastly work of his idol.
Enlisting her brilliant research assistant, Tristan Harper, Kate draws on her prodigious and long-neglected skills as an investigator to catch a new monster. But there’s much more than her reputation on the line: Kate was the original killer’s intended fifth victim . . . and his successor means to finish the job.


My Thoughts

Kate Marshall discovered a serial killer 15 years ago… now her life is much more peaceful and without any risks in it. But everything will come back again when a body is found with similar marks as the old case. Is there a copycat or a new killer with a similar modus operandi?
I’ll admit that I’ve read this book in just one stand, I was really waiting to dig in all Christmas but it arrived a little late and I couldn’t wait to start reading to discover if it was worth the wait. As a book lover you know that no matter how hard you try reading a book if it’s not for you, you get stuck at the beginning. I can’t say that this happened to me on this case, I had to turn off my mobile for all the time I was reading, I really couldn’t put it down!
The story is told in the soft voice from Kate, who tells how her world is starting to crumble again after having to face her worst nightmare. But she is an intelligent and brave woman, she wants to know if the new case is linked to the past and she is ready to ask as many questions as possible to discover the truth. She will have the help of her assistant Tristan, they make a really great detective couple and I really hope we’ll see them again investigating a new case! Kate is fighting her own demons as a result of her last case, that’s what makes the story so human, it could be any of us facing our worst nightmare!
I’m always surprised how a killer could have a fan club, or even someone that wants to copy their way to kill. The “FAN” as he calls himself is ready to do anything to follow his idol path, even succeed where the first fall. You’ll have to read the book if you want to know how it ends!
The story flows through you since the first page, it’s an investigation story, but told in a human way putting the reader in hold all the time. The characters felt real and believing, I hope this will not be their last adventure!
A fault? There were a few things that I was surprised that the police didn’t investigate; candies in prison without any type of control? I always thought that nothing could be given to prisoners by their visitors!
This is a book you will want to read, to discover an amazing author if you’ve never read of Robert Bryndza, because let me tell you a secret, you should discover you need to read them, they are addictive! 😉
