Book Review: Shed No Tears by Caz Frear @CazziF @ZaffreBooks #ShedNoTears

Today I’m sharing my review for third instalment of the fabulous Cat Kinsella series, Shed No Tears by Caz Frear. Huge thanks to Tracy Fenton and Zaffre Books for the gifted copy.

About the book

Four victims.
Killer caught.
Case closed . . . Or is it?

Christopher Masters, known as ‘The Roommate Killer’, strangled three women over a two-week period in a London house in November 2012. Holly Kemp, his fourth victim, was never found.

Until now.

Her remains have been unearthed in a field in Cambridgeshire and DC Cat Kinsella and the Major Investigation Team are called in. But immediately there are questions surrounding the manner of her death. And with Masters now dead, no one to answer them.

Did someone get it wrong all those years ago? And if so, who killed Holly Kemp?

My thoughts

Cat Kinsella and Luigi Parnell are called out after the remains of a body are found in a ditch. It seems they’ve finally found Holly Kemp after she vanished 6 years ago and was believed to have been murdered by Christopher Masters, The Roommate Killer.

Things aren’t adding up though, Holly wasn’t murdered the same way that Masters other 3 victims were. Was The Roommate Killer responsible? Was there an accomplice? Or is there a killer still out there?

Oh my days, what a devilishly good story this is. It’s so good being back with Cat, she’s a great character and if you haven’t read the first two books in this series then I highly recommend you do. Shed No Tears would work as a stand-alone but to really get to know Cat and her story, then starting at the beginning would really benefit you. They are honestly such good books that you’ll fly through them.

Cat Kinsella is one of those characters you take to straight away, she’s clever, determined, caring, kind and she has a great sense of humour. Cat has secrets though and they’re always there in the back of her mind, troubling her but I think they make her more determined sometimes and she uses the fear or guilt to try and do her best.

Shed No Tears is an absolutely gripping read, from the first word to the last I was invested and I couldn’t put it down. I would be absolutely useless in the police because I had no clue how this case was going to be solved. Every time I thought I might possibly have maybe the slightest idea a red herring was thrown in and I love a story that keeps you on your toes, and this one did just that.

Caz Frear has written another fantastic story that is filled with brilliant characters that are realistic and really come to life. I really tried to take my time reading this book but I just couldn’t, each chapter I would say was my last but I had to keep reading, I was just so caught up in the story that sleep seemed very unimportant and then I was sad I was finished the book. Definitely a 5 star read.
