Product Description

Product Description

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 new novel from crime writer Celina Grace, author of Hushabye (A Kate Redman Mystery), Lost Girls and The House on Fever Street.

Praise for The Kate Redman Mysteries from Amazon and Goodreads reviewers:

“One of the best I have read this year. I read about a fourth of the book early in the day, then at bedtime, I thought I would read a bit more before sleep. I finished the book at 5:20 AM. Just could not put it down.”

“At last, a mystery that delivers…I found this novel superb because I got all I needed to know and none of what I didn’t.”

“…a gripping detective story but the main character engages you, and as well as wanting to know how the mystery turns out you want to learn more about her too.”

“…amazing book, read it front to back in one visit, couldn`t help myself…”

“…the most enjoyable Kindle book I have so far read since the 'low cost electronic revolution' which has been sweeping my reading habits for the last couple of years! Thoroughly recommended.”

“This was my introduction to the author, and I'm so glad I discovered the book. Well-written and a real page turner.”

4.0 out of 5 stars Another gripping detective mystery 27 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the second Kate Redman story I've read, and it was every bit as good as the first. We are attached completely to the likeable but flawed detective from the outset, and the plot is very engaging throughout. The reader dashes through the chapters to find the answers to the puzzle. One slight criticism is that when Kate the central character discovers what is going on, the reader is not allowed in on the secret for a few more chapters, which is a bit frustrating as we have been encouraged up to then to follow the detective every step of the way. It seems a little cruel of the author to exclude us at the critical point. But this is a minor issue, we find out soon enough what is going on.

Like the first Kate Redman which I read ('Hushabye') this book is very short - in fact, it's even shorter than the first one (hence only 4 rather than 5 stars this time). However, I have seen it said somewhere that the key to independent Kindle publishing is to write little and often, to keep the reader's interest - so perhaps that is what Ms Grace is doing here? It's a good story, well written and absorbing, and it will certainly keep me coming back for more of DS Redman's cases.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another gripping read 25 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was looking forward to reading the second book in the Kate Redmond series and it didn't disappoint. Having been introduced to the characters in Hushabye, it was easy to relate to their thoughts and feelings in this book. Again there was solid police procedure and a twist at the end. I'm looking forward to reading further books in the series.

This Inspector Kate short story covers a difficult subject sympathetically. When a beautiful young girl is discovered dead on the riverbank, it soon becomes apparent that all is not as it seems.
Cracking read.

Did not enjoy this as much as Hushabye but nevertheless still a good, easy read. Could do with her books being a bit longer but would recommend. Looking forward to the third one in the series, Imago.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great Kate Redman Mystery 31 Aug 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having really enjoyed the first Kate Redman Mystery 'Hushabye' I was very excited to download this Authors second installment 'Requiem'. This book does not disappoint! Attention to detail and great character building coupled with a mystery that keeps you guessing are all the ingredients that make me keep reading till the early hours of the morning! I like Kate Redman and I want to know how she handles her next case... more books in this series please Celina Grace.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great follow-up to Hushabye 21 Aug 2013
By C. Bannister TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I chose Requiem because I'd recently read and enjoyed Hushabye (A Kate Redman Mystery) (The Kate Redman Mysteries) which introduced us to Kate Redman's in her first outing as a detective.

I warmed even more to Kate while reading this episode. Having come from a dysfunctional family the last thing Kate needs is her brother Jay to have known her latest murder victim. Not only had Jay seen Elodie, the victim, the night she died, he'd painted a scene that looked remarkably like the murder scene.

This relatively short crime novel , 158 pages, has plenty of suspects for Kate and Olbeck to question. At the heart of the book are the questions who killed Elodie and why? In other words a classic whodunit. This book ticks all the right boxes regarding plot, red herrings along with a good mystery to solve.

I was pleased to see that the next instalment, Imago, is due out on 30th September 2013.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent read 12 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have really enjoyed the Kate Redman stories and have signed up to the author's website and blog. I like police procedurals and it is nice to have an interesting and very human woman protagonist with whom one can identify. Her character develops with every novel and I am looking forward to reading "Snarl", which has just been published.
