Requiem (A Kate Redman Mystery: Book 2) Celina Grace read online review & book 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 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’s brother is an artist, giving her his latest one, of a girl laying in the river mud. Wanting to celebrate Kate moving into her house, and to hear the model, which also happens to be a great singer. The next day, a murder, which shocks Kate, the scene, and person is of her painting. Should she say anything about the painting, Jay didn’t come back and sleep at her place. Notifying parents, the girl had been different,argumentative the last few months. This case takes a turn that catches so many people.People guilty of a love that was wrong, of jealousy, scars from their past. Young, feeling unloved, their story will touch the readers.

    I always read the reviews before downloading a book, & since I agree with Dilywi, I won't be reading this one. I also thank those who share their information.

    I loved it. Read it in one sitting. I'm getting to be a fan. I've read three of her books and they keep getting better.

    I'm in the back seat of a rented minivan on my way to a wake. Between me and two intelligent humans in front are a toddler, who inexplicably offended by some minuscule indicator light on the ceiling panel has been pointing at it and shrieking baby invectives for the last seven hours. Directly ahead of me, a pre-schooler becomes three-bags carsick and off and on yucks and upchucks. His mother (finally) turns off Brainiacs, which has been echoing through the car's interior from the DVD player. My beloved husband periodically sags over in his sleep into my very limited space, And with all that going around me I became so engrossed in this wonderful book that I didn't notice anything else. Incredibly woven, its twists and turns kept me guessing and page-turning until the very end. I'd say it's a must-read!
  • Great Read!

    I originally felt this story got off to a very slow start. However, once the crime was discovered, things start to move along physically, and for Kate, emotionally. From that point forward the story picked up pace and through some interesting ebbs and highs reached a very surprising and shocking conclusion. I was not at all expecting how this story concluded. A good smooth read, as usual from this author. I am in no way a professional reviewer, but I felt there was perhaps a little too much about Kate's problems from her youth. Just my opinion. Otherwise a great plot, good use of the characters, and not so many that the reader became confused trying to remember who each one was. Looking forward to the next book to read about their newest exploits. RET. LT.
