The West Country town of Abbeyford is suffering its worst floods in living memory when a landslide reveals the skeletal remains of a young woman. Detective Sergeant Kate Redman is assigned to the case but finds herself up against a baffling lack of evidence, missing files and the suspicion that someone on high is blocking her investigation...
Matters are complicated by her estranged mother making contact after years of silence. As age-old secrets are uncovered and powerful people are implicated, Kate and the team are determined to see justice done. But at what price?
Echo is the sixth in the bestselling Kate Redman Mysteries series. Available for pre-order in March 2015.
Echo is just that
I have read all the previous Kate Redman books and I found this one to be a bit slower-paced. Although the action was perhaps less, this may be appropriate to a cold case, that is a case where the actual crime took place decades before, even though there was no real investigation at the time. In spite of that I still found the story interesting and engaging, perhaps due to the events in happening in Kate’s personal life.
I think the fact that I have read the previous books and know Kate’s history helped to make this book enjoyable, as a opposed to someone picking it up as a stand-alone read.
I look forward to the next case!
Riveting story keeps you entertained
