When Detective Constable Kate Marshall manages to capture a serial killer known as the Nine Elms Cannibal it comes at a cost. Her career and nearly her life. Fifteen years later and Kate is no longer in the force but a Criminology lecturer. When she is asked by a grieving parent to investigate the disappearance of their daughter around the time of the "Cannibal" killings, Kate becomes enmeshed in what may be a copycat killer.
I would love to relate more of the story but I'm afraid it would give away all the excellent spoilers. I really enjoyed the first in what could be a very exciting series. There is no shortage of disturbing and gruesome content and each chapter was gripping. I could easily have demolished this in one sitting but I enjoyed the anticipation too much. I think I will have to revisit the Erica Foster series to keep me going until the next Kate Marshall instalment.
Nine Elms by Robert Bryndza hits the shelves in Jan 2020.
