  • Nine Elms another cracking read from Bryndza

    I love the Detective Erika Foster series and I have been waiting to read Nine Elms. Robert Bryndza has done it again with a cracking new read to kick start this new series. Loved the new characters and the Nine Elms story didn’t disappoint. Looking patiently forward to reading the second instalment with Kate Marshall in Shadow Sands. If you enjoyed reading the Erica Foster series you’re in for a treat with Nine Elms. If you haven’t read any previous books by this author then Nine Elms is a good place to start. And while you await the second book in this new series try the Erica Foster series. Happy reading!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • ROBERT BRYNDZA -NINE ELMS

    Another good book from this author, good characters and a fascinating but sometimes disturbing story line. The ending will completely bow you away full of tension.

  • Thriller

    Nine Elms by Robert Bryndza A Kate Marshall Thriller #1 Brilliant! This book is not a quick read but it flew by as every word carried the weight of this story. From the beginning through till the end this book had me on tenterhooks waiting to see what would happen next. Enthralling read and an excellent introduction to what, going by this book, will be a series I will not want to miss one book of. What I liked: * Kate: flawed, smart, tenacious, willing to do what it takes – I like her, felt sorry for her at points and truly admired her, too. * Tristan: her assistant is a young man with a future – though untried I found him open, caring, wise, young and endearing – I want to know more about him * Jake: Kate’s son – he is not formed yet and as the series goes on I can see any number of things happening in his life * The other people like Kate’s parents and neighbor – can see them taking part in future books * That Kate is not a young thing * That this is not really a cozy mystery or a police procedural as Kate is not on the police force but it is a murder mystery of a cold case that ties into current murders, too. * The idea put forth that Kate and Tristan might have a side business as private investigators – wonder if they will leave academia or stay in it – will they get licenses or are they even needed in England? What I did not like: * The four sicko psychos that were mentioned in this story – I detested them and wished a horrible fate for them. * Kate’s AA affiliation – it seems that every PI, police person, solver of cases seems to end up with an alcohol problem and though that may be true I would kind of like to see someone that does not have a dependency problem * The reminder that there is so much evil in the world – that humans have so little regard for the lives of others. Did I enjoy this book? Yes Would I read more in this series? As soon as possible, please Thank you to NetGalley and Tomas & Mercer for the ARC – This is my honest review. 5 Stars

  • The suspension is terrifying at times

    Have you ever watched a movie when the tension is picking up, something bad is about to happen and you sit 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 know more and see where it would all end. I now can’t wait for more books 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 out more about her young assistant Tristan in subsequent books too.

    Thanks for your feedback!
