She catches lead on the case, but she’s frustrated by a lack of evidence, missing files and a feeling someone up her chain, maybe even her one-time lover and big boss Detective Chief Inspector Anderton, thwarting her efforts to uncover the truth. Her life is complicated by the fact her estranged, dying of cancer mother has decided to drop back into her life after five years of silence. Oh, yeah, and she’s got to make a smashing toast at Olbeck’s wedding.
This is book 6 in the Kate Redman series. Many of my favorite supporting characters are back, and the author has introduced two new ones - a newly minted female officer who reminds Kate of when she was just starting out; and a handsome Black reporter who plays a central part in Kate resolving the case. Kate is still struggling with her feelings towards her mother, and still trying to extinguish the spark she carries for Anderton (I still want them to get together, even tho’ they’ve both moved on). She’s still flawed, but making strides toward improvement. She struggles with doing the right thing, at work and at home, but she ultimately finds the wherewithal to make the right choices. And she makes them without putting herself in harm’s way.
I received a copy of this book from the author, with the understanding I’d to an honest review. Absent the free copy, I would have purchase this on my own – and may still do so anyway, because I know the Kate Redman books are ones I’ll want to binge read at some point.
Set in the UK, in the West Country. Has a "Midsomer Murders" (TV) feel to it, but a bit grittier than the TV show.
I found the style to be engaging and I cared about the characters, but a star comes off for the abrupt and unsatisfying way the story ended. I didn't disagree with what happened, I just thought that it might have been spun out for a bit given the details.
I'm not sure I'd buy another Kate Redman at full price on the strength of this one (this is my first), but on sale? You bet.
Worth your time and money.
The plot involves solving a 40 year old murder, which turns out to involve pedophile crimes against young girls held in a home for runaway and difficult teenaged girls. It was very interesting to consider society's attitudes to young girls reporting these crimes 40 years ago, compared to today.
Kate is starting to move on, with the assistance of a cat. Her long estranged mother starts making efforts to get back into Kate's life. And Kate's boss Anderton might just be losing a bit of his squeaky clean glow. All in all, I enjoyed it.

I did laugh to myself when she referred to the hissing rain in a book set here in the UK cos' the adjective is more liable to be pissing !! Kate's retort when someone asked if he could buy her dinner also tickled me. The biggest "ouch" was in this line, "Like he told you too ?" A proper schoolgirl error there, Ms Grace ! The only other mistakes were a couple of times when words were added to sentences making them meaningless. One of those advanced readers she mentions should've spotted these.
The ending to this one gave me chills. It features a very topical subject, this story, and it was interesting to learn a little more about Kate's mum in it. I hope she has sorted out her speech in time for book 7 !!
The subject matter of Kate’s case is all too familiar and topical, but well written, it makes me want to keep reading to see how it ends. It was well worth the read, and as I’d not read anything by this author before, I’m definitely going to look at the earlier books in this series.
In this book you get to know more about her childhood and her extremely difficult relationship with her mother and understand why Kate has such deep seated need for order and structure in her life.
Woven into all the family drama and personal setbacks, is a powerful story that, if she keeps a promise she has made, threatens to cause Kate's world to implode and makes her question who she can actually trust.
In short, another excellent book by Celina Grace. Would really recommend this whole series.
The storyline was hard hitting, controversial, fast paced, and thanks to the first rate detection skills of the indomitable Kate Redman made for a very compelling read.
I enjoyed it from start to finish and intend to buy book one in this series so as not to miss any of Kate's past .
I haven't checked the length of the other books on the series, but 254 pages seemed a bit short.
Unable to put this book down until the end.
Twisted and turns which keeps you wanting more.
Interesting characters really something that flows nicely.
Best story that I have read for a while.
