shouting at the screen don t open the door or don t let him in , as you know what will happen next in the scene if they do Well, Nine Elms gave me this reaction right from the start.The book begins fifteen years before the main plot when Kate Marshall was a police detective working the Nine Elms Cannibal Case in which a serial killer is targeting young women, not only does the killer strangle his victims using a distinctive rope knot, he then leave them in the open, posing their bodies and takes bite out of his victims too.Through a mishap, Kate realises who the killer is just before he tries to make her his fifth victim She just about gets away with her life, but not without lots of injuries and her reputation as a detective in tatters Now, fifteen years later she is a university criminologist lecturer at Ashdean The killer is in prison where he will spend the rest of his life.Kate receives an email from a couple whose daughter went missing in 1990, they believe that she may have been one of the first victims of the Nine Elms Cannibal and would like Kate to take a look at her case She is also called to a mortuary where a body of a young girl lies after being discovered in woodland, posed, strangled and bitten It looks like there is a copy cat killer on the loose and they are following the same pattern as the original killer which means Kate could end up being the fifth victim, again, but will she be so lucky this time Nine Elms is the first book by Robert Bryndza that I have read I know of his Erika Foster series and even own a couple of the books but I ve never gotten around to reading them, shame on me because if they are anywhere near as good as this one I really must.Kate is a great character, she has been through so much in her life After nearly being murdered, it turned out that she was pregnant with the killer s child and by the time she awoke in the hospital after the attack and subsequent surgeries it was too late to abort She lost her job because of her relationship with the killer too Everything got too much for her mentally and she took to alcohol to numb her pain She has been sober for six years now, her son still lives with her parents after she was unfit to look after him when drinking.The book is dark and you can feel the tension radiating off the pages It is very addictive and most certainly gripping, helped by the fact that it is fast paced with short chapters which I always feel gives it an even faster plot feel and makes you want to keep on reading.The suspension is terrifying at times yet it is a book I just couldn t put down I need to knowand see where it would all end I now can t wait forbooks in this series as I think Kate has great potential and she has proven that she has amazing detective skills I also hope that we find outabout her young assistant Tristan in subsequent books too After his brilliant best selling Detective Erika Foster series, Robert Bryndza has embarked on a new series featuring Kate Marshall In 1995, Kate was a young DC who caught the Nine Elms Killer, Peter Conway, in traumatic circumstances when he tried to make her his fifth victim However, instead of being lauded for her efforts, she left the police in disgrace, her reputation in tatters with the intense media focus, she had made an error of judgement by sleeping with Conway, and ending up pregnan After his brilliant best selling Detective Erika Foster series, Robert Bryndza has embarked on a new series featuring Kate Marshall In 1995, Kate was a young DC who caught the Nine Elms Killer, Peter Conway, in traumatic circumstances when he tried to make her his fifth victim However, instead of being lauded for her efforts, she left the police in disgrace, her reputation in tatters with the intense media focus, she had made an error of judgement by sleeping with Conway, and ending up pregnant with his son 15 years later, Kate is now a popular criminology lecturer with a bright and gifted research assistant, Tristan Harper, at Ashdean University on the south coast She still carries the physical and emotional scars of the past, whilst trying to remain sober, attending AA meetings so that she can be the best mother possible Her 14 year old son, Jake, has been brought up by her parents, with Kate being unable to cope in the past She is now in a better place, having got over Jake being Peter s son, and built a stronger relationship with him.However, the past rears its ugly head when Kate is contacted by the distraught Malcolm and Sheila Murray, whose young daughter, Caitlyn, disappeared years ago in Manchester They are convinced she was another victim of Conway, but the police have given up on investigating, and they want Kate to find out what happened Kate feels their pain and agrees to look into Caitlyn s disappearance with the help of Tristan Additionally, there is a disturbed, obsessed and deranged super fan of Conway, replicating the brutally gruesome original murders of young girls With enormous resources at hand, the present day serial killer will do anything for Conway and it is no coincidence that he is operating in the area around where Kate now lives, she is once again to find herself in deadly danger In a narrative where Kate gets to dust off her old investigative skills, she tentatively begins to operate and establish herself as a private investigator with Tristan as her assistant.It took me a little while to become fully immersed in this novel, part of the reason for this is that Bryndza was doing the groundwork in establishing the series with its new emotionally and psychologically damaged Kate, the mother of a son with a serial killer for a father However, once I got hooked, I just raced through the tense and dark storyline, packed with suspense Kate is a great protagonist, her character is skilfully developed by the author, and whilst we learn little of Tristan, something I am sure will be rectified later, what I did get to know, I really liked The young teenage Jake is undoubtedly going to want to knowabout his father, perhaps even want to develop a closer relationship with Peter in the future This turned out to be a wonderful direction for Bryndza to take, this new series is thrilling and exciting, which has me looking forward the sequel Many thanks to Little, Brown for an ARC Solid Start to a New Series Nine Elms is a new police procedural about a former detective haunted by the events of her past 15 years after catching the Nine Elms serial killer, Kate Marshall finds herself barely staying afloat Dismissed from the police force due to her behavior, she is now a university lecturer When she receives a request from the parents of a missing girl to investigate their daughter s disappearance, Kate

years after catching the Nine Elms serial killer, Kate Marshall finds herself barely staying afloat Dismissed from the police force due to her behavior, she is now a university lecturer When she receives a request from the parents of a missing girl to investigate their daughter s disappearance, Kate finds herself being pulled back into the dark world of the Nine Elms killer At the same time, a copy cat has emerged and they intend to make Kate their final victim.This book works to set up the series and Kate s future career Some elements worked and some did not I liked Kate s character, but parts of her story line needed fleshing out Her character has issues with alcohol and this element made me groan there have been too many female detectives of late who are addicts and I am over this character flaw story line A lot of attention is given to Kate s alcoholism and it became repetitive and redundant I am hoping in the next book, Kate s character developsShe is intelligent and interesting and it will be interesting to see how her character develops in future books Another issue I had was with Kate s partner, Tristan, a 21 year old assistant He plays a huge role but very little detail is shared about him It would have been helpful to have his POV, as his story line is told to the reader vs letting the reader get to see and learn about his character Again, his character has a lot of potential but needs to be developed Parts of the plot are slow and repetitive However, the story line is interesting and there are some fascinating characters especially the killer and his sick mother Parts of this book are quite gruesome and disturbing, and I had to skip a few paragraphs here and there to help get through these moments.All and all, while I didn t love this book, I found it interesting and will read the next one in the series 3.5 starsA disgraced female detective fights for redemption and to catch a killer while keeping herself and her son safe.Kate

happened to be someone closer to her than she could have ever imagined Soon after his arrest, she was vilified and her once promising career ended in scandal Now a university professor, she has moved on with her life Then one day she receives a letter in the mail asking her to investigate a missing person s case A cold case where a young woman has gone missing and her parents have never received answers Moreover, there is a copycat killer out there Recreating the murders as an homage to his idol the Nine Elms Killer With her research assistant, Tristan Harper, in tow, Kate utilizes the skills she learned as a detective to hunt a killer who has every intention of hunting her.This was a solid start to a new series There is room for character development, and I hope to see that continue as the series progresses I enjoyed the working relationship between Kate and Tristan and hope it continues We learnabout Kate in this book while given some information on Tristan and his past but not much I hopewill be divulged about him in the future The characters in this book were interesting and he came up with some naughty bad boys Kate has her own struggles in this book, and I hope that in future books these struggles become less and we see her shine as a private investigator Although we don t know too much about Tristan yet, he did get the opportunity to show off his investigator chops in this one as well.He s off to a solid start to this series and I see it getting better over time as his characters become evenfleshed out and we learnabout them.Thank you to Thomas and Mercer and NetGalley who provided me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review All the thoughts and opinions are my own
