Shadow Sands is a tense procedural about a mysterious death and an investigation that leads to the uncovering of a serial killer.


This is book #2 in the Kate Marshall series, and I must say it is much better than book #1! It can be read as a standalone.

When former DC Kate Marshall discovers the body of a young man in a reservoir, she inserts herself into the police investigation. Although the police rule the death an accident, Kate believes otherwise. Hired by the boy’s mother to invest

Robert Bryndza's follow up to Nine Elms, his crime series featuring ex-Met Detective Constable, Kate Marshall, is a dark, intense and fast paced number. Kate has a traumatic past, damaged by a relationship with serial killer, Peter Conway, her ex-boss and DCI, that resulted in a pregnancy and the birth of a son, Jake, now 16 years old, whose growing up years were with her parents, awarded custody of him. Kate went through some dark years, her demons driving her to drink, that meant she was in no ...more

Let me say right off the bat, I’m a huge Robert Bryndza fan. I’ve enjoyed everything I’ve read and I’ve read all his mysteries. This is the second in the Kate Marshall series.
Kate follows Erika Foster as another strong female protagonist. Now serving as a university lecturer, she still maintains a strong interest in solving crimes. So, when the mother of a deceased young man asks her to investigate his death, she doesn’t hesitate to say yes. Right from the get go, there appear to be flaws in th

**CRACK** That is the sound of Robert Bryndza hitting it out of the ballpark yet again! Kate Marshall and her assistant, Tristan Harper are back again in book two of the Kate Marshall series.

Kate is diving with her son when she finds the body of a young man floating in the Shadow Sands Reservoir. When his death is ruled a drowning, things do not add up for Kate. She was once a police officer and knows how to look at clues, evidence and forensics. When she is asked to investigate things, she know

I enjoyed this more than I did book one, probably because Kate has a better grip on life now and the author only referred to her alcoholism a few times. I really like the working relationship she has with Tristan which seems to be an ongoing thing.

This book is action packed and tense, especially the chapters about Magdalena. Will she survive or won't she? It was difficult to guess who the guilty party was - there were so many possibilities to choose from and I did not work it out in advance. A v

In this second book in the 'Kate Marshall' series the former police detective looks into a death and a disappearance. The book can be read as a standalone.

*****

Kate Marshall was a Metropolitan Detective Constable until she discovered that her boss, DCI Peter Conway - with whom she'd been romantically involved - was a serial killer.



The subsequent scandal, plus the fact that Kate was pregnant with Peter's child, got her fired. Since then Kate became an alcoholic, lost custody of her (and Peter's)

First and foremost, a large thank you to NetGalley, Robert Bryndza, and Thomas & Mercer for providing me with a copy of this publication, which allows me to provide you with an unbiased review.

Adding to his successful new thriller series, Robert Bryndza delivers another Kate Marshall novel that will keep readers turning pages well into the night. Not only is the plot one that has great potential, but the characters come to life in a mystery that spans many years. Recommended to those who know an

If you've read the first book in this series Nine Elms, then you'll know that University criminology lecturer Kate Marshall has a complex background in both her previous professional life as a detective in the Met and in her personal life. As a result her parents were awarded custody of her young son Jake when she was in a bad place earlier in her life, but now that he is 16 and she is doing well, they enjoy spending time together. They have recently completed a scuba diving course and it is dur ...more

We've got a heavy-duty suitcase here bursting at the seams with the weight of its contents. So let's unpack all the vital articles that make this one a sure-fire winner.

If you've had the pleasure of reading the first book in this series, Nine Elms, then you've been introduced to Kate Marshall. Bryndza likes his characters complicated and so do we. Case in point, Kate had been a detective constable for the Metropolitan Police back in 1995. She was a dedicated officer until she stepped over the li

A visiting academic from Italy, a young woman called Magdalena, disappears while investigating local legends and mysteries.

This is my first book by Robert Bryndza and I loved his writing style so much that I already ordered a copy on Nine Elms, the first book in Kate Marshall Series. While I really don't mind spoilers, I have to admire the author's skill in giving just enough background information to get me hooked on the series and not revealing any crucial details about Kate Marshall's previous case.

Robert Bryndza books are just so darn addictive! His Erika Foster series is one of my favourite police procedural series and then Kate Marshall books are just as good. Once you get started you won’t want to stop reading.

Shadow Sands by Robert Bryndza is the second book in the Kate Marshall series but also works well as a standalone mystery. Kate is a professor and part-time private investigator. While scuba diving with her teenage son, they discover the body of a young man floating in the Shadow Sands reservoir on the moorlands. When police declare this to be an accident, Kate disagrees and puts on her investigator cap to determine if this death might be a murder. She soon realizes that several young people fro ...more

Shadow Sands, the second novel in Byrndza's Kate Marshall amateur sleuth series, is a fast paced exciting serial killer read sure to have wide appeal because of its readability and accessibility.

Now, recovering from years of alcohol abuse and emotional turmoil, Marshall is a mother and a university lecturer. But, she gets involved in murder cases like any a ...more

This is a great serial killer thriller full of tension and dicey situations! It is the second book in the Kate Marshall series, but I haven't read the first one - yet - and I can easily say the book could stand alone, so you wouldn't have to read the first one before diving into this.

I really enjoyed reading this second book in Robert Bryndza's Kate Marshall series. The plot is multi-layered and twisty, a slow build of tension to a gripping edge-of-your seat conclusion.
Two years after the action of Nine Elms (Kate Marshall #1), former police officer Kate is again drawn away from her work as an academic into a real life crime. While diving in the Shadow Sands reservoir with her 16-year-old son, Jake, Kate comes across the recently deceased body of a young man. After becoming
