THE TRUTH HIDES IN THE DARK
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!
Deft, intricate, and suspenseful!
In this latest novel by Bryndza, Devil’s Way, we head back to the UK where former police detective turned PI Kate Marshall and her trusty partner Tristan Harper now find themselves, at the request of a tormented grandmother, investigating the tragic eleven-year-old cold case of a missing toddler who seemingly vanished without a trace one night while out camping with his family in the wilds of Dartmoor.
The writing is meticulous and tight. The characters are intuitive, relentless, and committed. And the plot unravels briskly into a sinister tale full of twists, turns, heartbreak, deception, desperation, suspicious personalities, familial drama, mental illness, misdirection, and tragedy.
Overall, Devil’s Way is an atmospheric, gripping, highly entertaining thriller that once again highlights Bryndza’s exceptional ability to write menacing, sophisticated mysteries that have well-drawn characters and edgy storylines. It is the fourth novel in the Kate Marshall series and definitely one of my favourites.
