Summary

The sensational new thriller by multi-million best-selling author, Robert Bryndza. Kate Marshall faces her toughest challenge yet: hunting down a disturbing serial killer hiding in plain sight....

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.

dissapointed

I love this author and was so looking forward to this new book. Sadly the narration for me was dire. No personality at all what dragged the book down. Maybe I would have thought better of the story had there been even a tiny bit of umph in the narration. I hope the next offering from this talented author will be availabe with a new reader 🤞

Decent enough trashy thriller

Not well written, but decent enough for a Bryndza book. There are a number of “...he said “...” she said” I counted 5 in a row.

Hard to guess ending

I love the plot and portraying of people is just right. The lector voice is perfect match.

Easy listen. Not too heavy.

Really like
this series. Story's have enough mystery to keep me interested, the language isn't too flowery and the crimes not too graphic. Main characters have their issues but not annoyingly so... Easy listen when out walking with my book. Looking fwd to the next installment.

good story

narrator a bit irritating with lots of unnecessary '...said' ....said'. the different voice tone would have been sufficient
