THE UNMISSABLE NEW THRILLER FROM THE INTERNATIONALLY BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THE GIRL IN THE ICE AND NINE ELMS ROBERT BRYNDZA
'You can't help turning the pages hungrily to see what happens next' THE TIMES
'Taut, atmospheric and spooky, Shadow Sands is truly chilling' JP DELANEY
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.
WHAT READERS ARE SAYING ABOUT SHADOW SANDS
'Another top class novel full of mystery, tension and dark secrets . . . The more I read, the more I am loving this series and, seeing how this one has ended, I cannot wait for book three'
'Rob Bryndza is one of the best authors I have read, I love his books'
'Dark, disturbing yet every bit as thrilling as Nine Elms. I just know there are more thrills and chills awaiting us in future books in the series. Kudos to the author as he has well and truly nailed it'
'Bryndza has done it again. The second episode in the Kate Marshall series was just excellent. Full of excitement, danger and mystery, it was a brilliant read'
Early in Bryndza's dazzling sequel to 2019's Nine Elms, former police officer Kate Marshall, now a university lecturer in criminology, finds the body of a teenage boy while scuba diving in a reservoir near her home in Devon, England. Kate, who has acted as a private investigator in the past, is reluctant to get involved, until the dead boy's mother persuades her to look into his suspicious death. Kate enlists the help of her assistant, Tristan Harper, who must out himself as queer to clear his name when he appears in film footage outside the house of a missing Italian professor he agreed to go on a date with. The missing professor may be linked to the body in the reservoir, and Kate and Tristan get immersed in a case that begins with an officer who appears to be faking evidence to force a false arrest and ends with a wealthy family that's all-too-entangled with the business of murder. Sharply written and wonderfully wrought, this crime thriller sings with every twist and builds to a more-than-satisfying bang. Readers will look forward to seeing more of Kate.
