Overview

The girl’s body lay on the riverbank, her arms outflung. Her blonde hair lay in matted clumps, shockingly pale against the muddy bank. Her face was like a porcelain sculpture that had been broken and glued back together: grey cracks were visible under the white sheen of her dead skin. Her lips were so blue they could have been traced in ink.

When the body of troubled teenager Elodie Duncan is pulled from the river in Abbeyford, the case is at first assumed to be a straightforward suicide. Detective Sergeant Kate Redman is shocked to discover that she’d met the victim the night before her death, introduced by Kate’s younger brother Jay. As the case develops, it becomes clear that Elodie was murdered. A talented young musician, Elodie had been keeping some strange company and was hiding her own dark secrets.

As the list of suspects begin to grow, so do the questions. What is the significance of the painting Elodie modelled for? Who is the man who was seen with her on the night of her death? Is there any connection with another student’s death at the exclusive musical college that Elodie attended?

As Kate and her partner Detective Sergeant Mark Olbeck attempt to unravel the mystery, the dark undercurrents of the case threaten those whom Kate holds most dear…

Requiem (A Kate Redman mystery) is the second in the bestselling Kate Redman Mysteries series, from crime writer Celina Grace, author of Hushabye (A Kate Redman Mystery: Book 1), Lost Girls and The House on Fever Street.

Kate Redman is a believable, likeable, strong female detective trying to discover the truth behind a gifted young woman's murder- even when the clues point to her brother

I have read the entire Kate Redman muder mystery collection. If you enjoy British police mysteries with a spunky, yet vulnerable female detective, this is for you. Celina Grace creates characters that you become attached to and are so vibrant and real! You want to see what happens next with each one, especially Kate. Please read a sample of the first book and see what I mean. Buy the sets of three to save money even though they are worth every penny. To enjoy the growth and changes with the characters, though not necessary,please start with book #1. I can"t say enough about this talented British writer! You.have to see for yourself and enjoy! .

The number of pages has nothing to do with quality. This is a short book with a complex plot that kept me guessing.

The characters have depth. The solution to the mystery slowly reveals itself. You really get to see the characters work it out.

They need half stars, would be 4.5, maybe 4.75 if allowed. I have trouble leaving a 5 if I figure out what is going on before the end. I am looking forward to more from this series. Have to find and get them in order, though not "necessary."

Light police procedural book. The characters are interesting enough to keep me. It's also a quick read which I frequently want. I primarily read for entertainment.

This story was captivating, with villains eclipsed by supervillains. Plot twists were welcome and the story hubg together.
