✪ Devil's Way (Kate Marshall #4) ✪ Robert Bryndza ✪



Kate Marshall’s investigation into a young boy’s disappearance sends her down an unexpectedly twisted path in a riveting thriller by multi-million bestselling author, Robert Bryndza.

When Private Investigator Kate Marshall is rushed to hospital after being pulled into a riptide current in the sea, the near-death experience leaves her shaken. During her recovery, she befriends Jean, an elderly lady on the same ward. Jean tells the harrowing story of how her three-year-old grandson, Charlie, went missing eleven years ago during a camping trip on Dartmoor.

By the time Kate is well enough to go home, she's agreed to take on the case, but when Kate and her trusty sidekick Tristan start to look at the events of that fateful night, they discover that Jean has a dark past that could have put Charlie in jeopardy.

Was Charlie abducted? Or did he fall into Devil's Way? A rushing river that vanishes into a gorge close to where they were camping.

When Kate and Tristan discover that a social worker who flagged concerns about Jean and her daughter was found brutally murdered shortly after Charlie vanished, it makes them question everything they thought they knew about the family...

Filled with twists and turns, Devil's Way is the fourth Kate Marshall novel and the most gripping and satisfying yet!



ARC kindly received from Netgalley for an honest review

Since my friend introduced me to Robert Bryndza books a couple of years ago, I haven't met a book I haven't enjoyed. 

This is the 4th Kate Marshall book, and whilst I have enjoyed them all, this story was my least favourite (not that that is a bad thing, the quality of the whole series is great).

It is also a harder story for me - stories involving kids are always a harder read for me. I kind of picked the culprits earlier on in the book, however Bryndza's storytelling had me second guessing myself right until all was revealed.

Devil's Way was a slower tale to unfold, with many interwoven lines all coming together in the last 25%, which was a fast paced, adrenaline packed punch to the guts

I liked how well Kate's character is developing throughout the series, and I just love Tristan.

I look forward to seeing where Bryndza takes the series in the future.
