‘You can’t help turning the pages hungrily to see what happens next’ THE TIMES

‘Taut, atmospheric and spooky, Shadow Sands is truly chilling’ JP DELANEY

When Kate Marshall finds the body of a young man floating in the Shadow Sands reservoir, the authorities label it a tragic accident.

But the details don’t add up: why was he there in the middle of the night? If he was such a strong swimmer, how did he drown? As Kate and her assistant Tristan Harper follow the evidence, they make a far darker discovery . . .

This is only the latest victim in a series of bloody murders dating back decades. A mythic serial killer is said to hide in the rolling fog, abducting his victims like a phantom. And when another woman is taken, Kate and Tristan have a matter of days to save her from meeting the same fate.



‘Another top class novel full of mystery, tension and dark secrets . . . The more I read, the more I am loving this series and, seeing how this one has ended, I cannot wait for book three’

‘Rob Bryndza is one of the best authors I have read, I love his books’

‘Dark, disturbing yet every bit as thrilling as Nine Elms. I just know there are more thrills and chills awaiting us in future books in the series. Kudos to the author as he has well and truly nailed it’

‘Bryndza has done it again. The second episode in the Kate Marshall series was just excellent. Full of excitement, danger and mystery, it was a brilliant read’

Bryndza is my type of author and Nine Elms is my type of book. Twisty, dark and layered with a protagonist you root for from page one, this is a superb start to what promises to be another stand out series
M. W. Craven on NINE ELMS
A narrative that is never less than throat-grabbing . . . Robert Bryndza knows how to keep the pages - and your stomach - turning
The Times on NINE ELMS
It is impossible not to root for the feisty, flawed Kate, who has to battle her old nemesis to save her reputation
Daily Mail on NINE ELMS
So chilling, with truly terrifying characters and a hard-hitting storyline that is gripping from start to finish. I will wait with bated breath for the next Kate Marshall thriller
Rachel Abbott on NINE ELMS
Fast-paced, full of well fleshed-out characters, this is a solid series debut and we look forward to seeing more of Kate Marshall
