About The Book

When Kate Marshall finds the body of a young man floating in the Shadow Sands reservoir, the authorities label it a tragic accident.
But the details don’t add up: why was he there in the middle of the night? If he was such a strong swimmer, how did he drown? As Kate and her assistant Tristan Harper follow the evidence, they make a far darker discovery . . .
This is only the latest victim in a series of bloody murders dating back decades. A mythic serial killer is said to hide in the rolling fog, abducting his victims like a phantom. And when another woman is taken, Kate and Tristan have a matter of days to save her from meeting the same fate.


My Thoughts

I’ll start saying that I loved the previous book of the series, “Nine Elms”, so I couldn’t wait to start digging to the new adventure of Kate Marshall, I knew that she would not disappoint me!
Kate is now a criminology lecturer but she has worked as a police officer before; now her life seems a little bit easier, she is starting to connect with his 16 years old son and seems that she is controlling her alcoholism. But as you can imagine things will not be easy for long, because in one of these family trips with her son they discover a body of a young student that seems to have died in an accident. Kate is not so sure about the victim’s death and when the mother of the victim asks for her help to investigate she can’t say no.
Everything will get more complicated when Tristan, Kate’s assistant, is the main suspect of another disappearance at the university… Are both cases related? Why is the police so eager to stop investigating? Will they find the missing lecturer before it’s too late?
As you can see there are a lot of questions that need answers, but you’ll have to read the book if you want to know them!
This is a nail bitting story, full of mystery and a human touch, don’t expect Kate or Tristan to be perfect, they are human in the end, and they have they faults, but they will try to help as much as they can, be sure of it.
This is the second book of the “Kate Marshall” series, they are amazing and addictive, you can read it as standalone, but I would recommend it to start from the beginning, the wait for the next book will be shorter!
