Book Review | Nine Elms by Robert Bryndza | prettylittlewriter

 It's only in the last couple of years that I've really gotten into reading crime novels, but I've always been a huge fan of crime movies, documentaries and TV shows since I was a teenager.

So when I had this book recommended to me purely because it mentions numerous locations that are close to where I live, I thought I'd give it a shot.
This has been one of the most enjoyable and suspenseful crime novel I've read yet. 

It was gruesome and had some pure hand-to-mouth in shock moments, and was incredibly gripping. I felt very sympathetic for Kate, our protagonist, throughout, and I just couldn't put it down.

Robert Bryndza has a writing style that keeps you hooked. I love how he gave you a different characters perspective throughout; not only did we have Kate's perspective, but also the serial killer and a police officer, to name a few.

Living in Devon, having the different locations mentioned nearby, really added to the effect the book had for me. I could really visualise certain areas and I found it enthralling.

Kate is a great heroin, and her assistant Tristan is bright and loveable, and even the 'baddies' of the novel have so much depth and intricate detail to them that you feel you know them well.
Overall, I have digested this book in an avid hunger for more. It was absolutely thrilling and I'm now desperate to get my hands on the next novel! 
Would definitely recommend to anyone who loves crime thrillers.

4/5 stars
