The Thames Path Killer

The Thames Path Killer is the debut in the DI Rob Miller series. When a young lady is found sexually assaulted and strangled to death along the Thames River Path, people think it’s the bitterness of her ex-lover. The lady’s fiancé says that she had reported to the police about someone stalking her just some weeks before the fateful night.

DI Rob Miller receives a call from DCI Sam Lawrence when he is about to go to Bistro in Richmond to celebrate his engagement with his fiancée. He’s no other choice but to go where the Murder Investigation Team assigns him the case.

Miller is a young, ambitious detective of the South West London Major Investigation Team and has been looking forward to getting ahead of his career, and he’s so pleased when he is put in charge of the case. Having earned a promotion recently, he sees this as his dream come true and will do anything to prove he is worth the position, but he should also keep his personal life on the right track.

He is under much pressure from the DCI to solve the case as fast as possible as the higher authority is pressuring the DCI. Miller works day and night with his team to get more information while chasing similar cases.

Miller and his team have to catch the killer before more women become victims. After a short while, the team starts piecing together some clues which may lead them to track the serial killer. He has to spend more time away from Yvette, his fiancé, which starts straining their relationship even after Rob explains to her how dedicated they become once they start working on a case of this nature. Despite the explanation, Yvette is not happy with how he spends most of his time working.

Everything gets more complicated when two more young ladies are killed in the same way. Surprisingly, the three ladies had in common that they were engaged and almost getting married. Why is the serial killer targeting the brides-to-be?

They also reported having stalkers a few weeks before their deaths. Most people refer to him as the surrey stalker. As the case becomes complex, officers from a different jurisdiction join Miller’s team as they try to bring the killer to justice before it’s too late. With no DNA and evidence to guide them, the team has to do everything to identify and catch the killer.

At first, Rob isn’t happy with the idea of the other team, but later, he finds the new senior investigating officer easy to work with.

On the other side, Yvette is trying to plan their wedding with Miller. As Rob gets close to catching the killer, his fiancée vanishes, and now Rob knows in no time, this matter will become personal.

The plotline is well woven to make a page-turning thriller with a ruthless killer, fraught relationships, evidence, and a personal life with many challenges to go through. The novel is fast-paced, with many actions and twists to keep the reader in suspense. The intrigue of the case keeps the story flowing at a steady pace, and the character development makes the story well layered.

Miller is dedicated to his job, and he gets support from his team, who believe in him and themselves. Yvette is self-centered and didn’t understand Miller’s passion for his work, especially now that he had recently gotten promoted.

It’s not until the team can find the right questions to interrogate that they can find themselves on the right track and making steps ahead, but with no single clue, how will they know what to ask?
