FIVE of 5 stars

When you’ve had a streak of mediocre books to read, you can always trust Robert Bryndza to break it.
I love his Erika Foster books, and now we have a new heroine, Kate Marshall. A former detective who brought down a serial killer, almost getting herself killed in the process, she’s now a professor who struggles with her alcoholism every day. She also struggles with the consequences of her alcoholism. Meanwhile, a copycat killer is on the loose.

Nine Elms is a fully terrifying thriller, both complicated and fast paced. No big plot holes that I noticed, although the Facebook timeline is a bit off (People forget we haven’t always had FB, and although it’s possible Tristan joined FB in 2005 as a 16 yr old, I don’t believe it’s very likely). The killer/s in this book are indeed terrifying, and even though killer #2 has a Batman style benefit, it was a possible benefit that I can buy into. Overall, after reading some not-so-great thrillers, I’m reminded how great it is to read a scary, complicated story that ties up loose ends and gives us great characters both good and bad. It is also obvious that Kate Miller has several novels ahead of her, and I’m excited to read them.

Many thanks to NetGalley for the ARC in exchange for a fair review. I’ll never understand how Bryndza manages to crank out these books at such a fast pace while also giving us amazing stories with great characters. Five stars for this one.
