Publisher Description

'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'

'A gripping read that I could not put down'

'What an absolutely stunning start to what promises to be a brilliant new series'


From the breakthrough international bestselling author of The Girl in the Ice, a breathtaking, page-turning novel about a disgraced female detective's fight for redemption. And survival.

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.


'Twisty, dark and layered . . . A superb start to what promises to be another stand out series' M. W. CRAVEN

'Gripping from start to finish. I will wait with bated breath for the next Kate Marshall thriller' RACHEL ABBOTT

This is the sixth book by this author that I have read. As with the previous five, I found this to be very readable. I raced through it, picking it up whenever I had a moment, enjoying it.
It was at times a little gruesome for my taste (pun intended) and at times rather implausible, the reasons for 4* rather than 5.
I look forward to my next Robert Bryndza book.

I love Erika Foster books and this did not disappoint. I love that characters are all fleshed out and believable. Robert has a clear voice for female characters.
