Publisher's summary

From the breakthrough international best-selling author of The Girl in the Ice, a breathtaking 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.

15 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.

Like the new heroine, but ..

There are a couple of examples of shark-jumping, here.

Kate Marshall is a pleasant relief from the miserable Erika Foster, whose specialty is going on and on and ON about the death of her husband (it's no wonder she has 2 friends - and she's lucky to have <b>them</b>).

Anyway: Bryndza continues with his writer's trick of letting us know all about the perpetrator(s) and having us wanting to point and shout "Behind you !". It's a perfectly viable way to write about a murderer, and he can make it work.

For me, there are too many times when he writes a smallish scene and then just walks away from it; leaving me wondering "So what was that all about ?".

But, regardless of my carping, I did enjoy "Nine Elms", and will certainly read Bryndza's next Kate Marshall.

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.
