An Amazon Charts bestselling series.
A Wall Street Journal bestseller.
The moors are a perfect hiding place for a serial killer. And a chilling return to the past for nascent private investigator Kate Marshall in a pulse-racing thriller by the author of Nine Elms.
Criminology academic Kate Marshall is on a scuba jaunt with her son when they dive toward a shocking discovery: the body of a teenage boy entangled below the surface of the Shadow Sands reservoir. The detective chief inspector’s too-quick narrative of a tragic drowning doesn’t add up, and when Kate follows the evidence, it leads to a darker discovery.
The victim is only the latest in a series of mysterious deaths and disappearances linked to the moorlands―and a mythic phantom said to hide in the rolling fog. When a researcher of urban legends vanishes without a trace, Kate and her associate Tristan Harper must act fast and look deep if they hope to find her alive.
But the elusive serial killer they’re hunting isn’t the only one a step ahead of Kate and Tristan. Someone else is making dead certain that the secrets of Shadow Sands stay buried.
“Sharply written and wonderfully wrought, this crime thriller sings with every twist and builds to a more-than-satisfying bang.” ―Publishers Weekly

The two protagonists, Kate and Tristan, are great characters, well written and relatable. Even though each has their problems, they are there for each other and offer invaluable support at crucial moments. I haven't read the first book in the series, but I felt as though I already knew the characters, and there was enough detail about their past to easily follow the story.
Full of mysterious local legends and missing people, each revelation keeps you turning the pages until the end. Highly recommend!

But what i dont get is why give up on erika foster - angela marsons character kim stone is still going strong 13 books in just very disappinting when i think most readers prefer erika foster that the author stopped with her think at the least if this character is done do one last epic book in the erika foster series
I also like kate marshall but i think the readers need a really decent prequel to actual care more about the character or maybe 3 short stories as a paper back
Nine elms was a better book an pricing the hardback at £20 is pitching too high as the series hasnt generated enough reader interest compared to erika foster
With Shadow Sands, Robert Bryndza ha provided readers with yet another top class novel full of mystery, tension and dark secrets, and in which our protagonist, Kate, finds herself pulled into an investigation that many people, the police included, would rather she just forget. It's a very tangled story, so many elements that are carefully and skilfully pulled together, that from the very beginning I found myself totally immersed ion Kate's world and wondering just which of the many suspects might be behind the grizzly deed and, more importantly, why. The author does a brilliant job of keeping readers guessing, introducing clues in the form of narration from the killer's perspective so carefully that you start to build up a clear picture of the kind of person they are up against, without having a clear vision of who they are. And believe me, there are any people in the frame this time around.
I love that in this series we get not only the investigation but also an insight into the personal lives of the two main characters, Kate and Tristan. We are well aware of Kate's complicated personal life after reading Nine Elms, but while it may have appeared that life was finally turning in her favour, it seems fate has other ideas and it seems we're not quite ready to close a door on that chapter of her life just yet. We also get to learn a bit more about Tristan this time around and getting to know him, and his family life, really helps bring him to life as a character. The more I know, the more I like him and he's certainly the perfect partner-in-crime-fighting for Kate. In fact it is Tristan's complicated personal life that draws the pair into an unexpected change of direction with the case, adding another layer of urgency to an already pacy plot.
If you are a fan of the author's crime thrillers you are going to love this latest adventure. Full of menace, the killer will make your skin crawl and the more I read, the more invested I became in some of the characters, the moreI could feel the tension build. It had me suspicious of nearly everyone, our protagonists aside, and from the very start I was completely engrossed in the story. The pacing is just perfect, the way in which Robert Bryndza uses the atmospheric conditions surrounding the reservoir and the remote landscape to add an unsettling edge to the story completely en-pointe. The more I read, the more I am loving this series and, seeing how this one has ended, I cannot wait for book three.
Well, yet again the author did not disappoint. What a start to novel and just thinking of Kate and her son even now as they uncover the dead body sends chills down my spine. Trouble never seems to be far away where Kate is concerned, especially with a past such as hers. I am really enjoying the pairing of her and Tristan and they have all the markings of a great partnership.
We get to know Kate’s trusted side kick, Tristan, more in this book which I loved. I have to admit his sister Sarah wound me up with her attitude and small mindedness and a few times I wanted to give her a good shake. I felt for Tristan as he struggles with certain aspects of his personal life but it all adds in making the main characters more appealing to the reader and by the end, I was desperate to read more from this pair.
The story centres around Shadow Sands which was a great location for a crime book. Kate being an ex copper, hasn’t lost her ability to pick up when something is not right. She also can’t leave things alone which makes things much more interesting. It soon becomes a race against time for the pair and have to say I love how it all ends.
Shadow Sands is a novel that has a lot riding on it. To follow on from such a phenomenal book, the pressure must really have been on the author to create another brilliant novel with expectations undoubtedly being high. Robert Bryndza has more than achieved that with this book though. It is dark, disturbing yet every bit as thrilling as the previous one. I love how he has kept certain aspects of Kate’s past open and 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.
