  • I am the biggest fan of Kate Rhodes and her ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC ‘Alice Quentin’ series. I could not wait to read this as soon as a copy magically appeared in my hands. Alice Quentin is now on her fourth outing and it is wonderful to see her back. This is a series that everyone should be shouting about.The story returns us to the world of Alice in London. Alice is a forensic psychologist, working with the Met. She is asked to look into the cold case of Jude Shelley, a cabinet minister’s da [...]


  • I’m a fan of the Alice Quentin books for sure – the first one started with a bang and they have steadily become more and more addictive – Now here we are at No 4 and this one was a doozy.Jude was brutally attacked and left for dead – now hanging on, her mother asks Alice to take another look at the case. Before she can really get into it though another body turns up in horrifically similar circumstances. Are the cases tied together? Working once more with the police, Alice starts to delv [...]


  • This book review is part of the official blog tour.River of souls for me was a non stop bone chilling read. Kate Rhodes manages to cast a magical spell on that reader that leaves you eager for more. This is my first encounter with the character Alice Quentin and although this book is part of a series it can still be thoroughly enjoyed as a standalone. The first thing that had me totally loving this book was the characters, Alice our main character is just so vividly real that you feel a strong c [...]


  • REVIEW: THE GIRL IN THE RIVER by Kate RhodesThis newest mystery in the intriguingly deep series starring as protagonist London forensic psychologist Alice Quentin is a meaty novel suffused with noir: bloody violence and family secrets unwrapped with history--both prehistoric and medieval--and Celtic spirituality. The reader comes away with a deep and abiding sense of satisfaction. This is a story worth telling and well told. One year after a viciously brutal assault destroyed and nearly killed a [...]


  • "A flicker of guilt rises in his throat. He doesn’t want to hurt her, but she knows too much. If she told her secrets, his world would be broken. The man kneels beside her to enjoy her beauty while it lasts."What can I say about this one. It had a lot of high ratings on , but I truly had a hard time getting through the entire book. I wanted to know "who did it" but couldn't wait to just be done with it because I found it massively boring for the most part. The synopsis sounds much better then [...]



  • Kate Rhodes is an author I only discovered shortly after starting the blog last year but her Alice Quentin series very quickly became a favourite of mine, and River of Souls was one of the books I was most anticipating in 2015. I am glad to say that it didn't disappoint, in fact the only disappointment I experience reading one of Kate's stories is reaching the end because they are over far too soon.Psychologist Alice Quentin's expertise is called upon when the case of a young woman who was bruta [...]


  • I'm not too sure how Kate Rhodes has slipped through my bookish net until now, because this is really, really good. Book 4 in the Alice Quentin series, I read River of Souls not realising that it was part of a series, however, although there is some references to previous cases, it can easily be read as a standalone and the references that are made don't give away any spoilers.I loved the setting for this novel - it's set in London, on various sites of the Thames, but there is nothing better tha [...]


  • 4.5Posted in full reviewedthebook/2015 River of Souls is the fourth instalment of the Alice Quentin series and it is another brilliant book by Kate Rhodes. Alice is ever likeable in the sense that she is quite normal – not full of herself, not so involved in her job that she’s cut off from being someone you can care for but also not the kind of person to let her personal life disrupt her work. I think Alice is one of the most honest, appealing protagonists I’ve ever read about and with eac [...]


  • It’s lovely when an author pulls you into a world, into a story, into the lives of her characters with the very first words of a book.“The Thames is preparing to race back to the sea, currents twisting like sinews of muscle. Endless rain has upset its smoothness, reflected lights scattering in a blur of silver. A man stands beside it, gazing across the water’s moonlit surface, listening to the voices of the drowned.”‘Lovely’ is probably not the right word, given that this is a dark c [...]


  • I received a complimentary copy of this book as a part of a book tour for a fair and honest review which in no way influenced my opinion of the reading material provided. I rated it 4.5 out of 5 Stars.A huge fan of suspense, mystery and thriller books, I was thrilled to get the chance to read and review The Girl in the River by Kate Rhodes. I was a little worried that I would have trouble connecting with the main character, Alice Quentin, since this is the fourth book in the series, but the auth [...]


  • The fourth book in the Alice Quentin series and Kate Rhodes is properly into her stride. By book four the recurring characters all feel like nicely rounded individuals, with full back-stories and, as with all well written characters, the reader can have a fairly good idea how each one will react under stressful situations.The story line of this book gets pretty stressful for all involved. One year on from a gruesome and horrific attack on the daughter of a cabinet minister, the family call in Al [...]


  • This is the fourth book in the Alice Quentin series and I am such a fan of Kate Rhode's books that I eagerly await her next instalment every time! When this book was being published, Kate told me that she had mentioned me in the acknowledgements of River of Souls!! This absolutely made my day and I can honestly say, this has been the highlight of my blogging journey so far. I may not have my name in lights, but it's in a book!!I love Alice, she is gutsy but also has a soft, vulnerable side to he [...]


  • Jude Shelley, daughter of a prominent cabinet minister, had her whole life ahead of her until she was attacked and left to drown in the Thames. Miraculously, she survived. A year later, her family ask psychologist Alice Quentin to re-examine the case. But then an elderly priest is attacked in Battersea, his body washed up at Westminster Pier. An ancient glass bead is tied to his wrist. The river has always demanded sacrifices, and now it seems a killer believes it's calling out for more.Alice is [...]


  • Yet again Kate Rhodes has written an excellent atmospheric crime thriller. I loved her last Alice Quentin book - The Winter Foundlings - and couldn't wait to read this one too. Although River of Souls is part of a series, it can easily be read as a standalone, as it includes enough background information about the characters so that you don't get lost but no spoilers about previous books.River of Souls incorporates a chilling plot filled with suspense, tragedy, grief and family secrets. The crim [...]


  • This is perhaps the most gruesome of the series so far but is nonetheless a great read. Alice is given an assignment in the FPU (forensic psychology unit of the Met) in London to take another look at a crime which happened a year ago. Coincidentally, the same week, similar murders occur and it's not long before Alice and DI Burns conclude they are dealing with a serial killer who is obsessed with the Thames and its history of receiving sacrifices from ancient to roman times. Alongside the invest [...]


  • Read this very quickly as couldn't put it down. I love books written about places I know and the Thames is where I make for in London. Learnt a lot about its darker history and now need a trip to the Prospect of Whitby and Execution Dock which I have only seen from a boat. The author really gets under the skin of her characters, making them believable. Alice, the psychologist and main character, explains motivations in a clear and interesting way. Would stand alone but best read as no 4 in the s [...]


  • River of Souls is the fourth book in the Alice Quentin series by Kate Rhodes. Set in South London it focuses on the Thames and had me gripped all the way through, with twists and turns of the murky river and its history. Alice's life becomes more complicated as the crimes and intrigue mount until a powerful spine chilling climax finishes what for me is the best in the series. Can't wait for the next book.


  • In addition to being gripping mysteries, I like the way the author has portrayed Alice overall throughout the series - she's smart and capable but gets lead down the wrong path sometimes, she's flawed but not overly so and not in annoying ways. Her relationship with Lola and her brother and mother seem incredibly real.


  • This series keeps getting betterThe perfect mix of murder, suspense and romance. Alice Quentin is a pint sized hero in a world of undesirable family members and a desire to always help others.


  • Hard book to put down once you start. Keeps you on edge. Keeps you guessing and not easy once you think you have it all figured out then you have something else put in front of you. Little bit of romance and suspense wrapped up in one book! *Received for an honest review*


  • I am glad I kept on with this series because RIVER OF SOULS is the best book yet. I've come to appreciate Alice's growth and she doesn't act like a complete twit here. I also loved the personal developments between Alice and Don, and I love Tania so getting a bit more of her was lovely.


  • absolutely loved this book from start to finish. Kate Rhodes deserves awards for her constant ability to write brilliant books. Can't wait for the next one!! :-)


  • Good seriesI was happy to find the next book in the series and it did not disappoint, a little far out but enjoyable


  • The book follows the same recipe as the earlier volumes in the series so if you enjoyed reading those you will also enjoy this one. I personal find it interesting that Alice Quentin, the central character in this series, though proclaimed as an expert in her field of criminal profiling, doesn't actual help the police identify the serial killer but rather almost stumbles upon them (and therefore finally revealing their identity) in a life threatening encounter in the final chapters. This doesn't [...]


  • Once again, I've fallen into a series mid way through with no clue it even was a series. What a marvellous read. Alice is the kind of woman I'd love to be. Strong, resilient, smart and quick on her feet. The plot line was one that has me captivated from the start. And the murderer was not at all who I thought it was going to be! The last 100 pages were so bone chilling I had to turn all the lights in my house on just to finish the ending! Bravo Kate Rhodes. I will be looking for you again!


  • Brilliant story and cast, easy to follow and very compelling. Keeping the reveal right to the end was a genius idea. Giving many red herrings on the way made it all the more enjoyable. I will certainly be looking out for more by Kate Rhodes.


  • This series is like a stream of consciousness from the heart of London. I find it addictive. The main characters develop a little further, and some elements feel a bit samey but highly dramatic as usual.


  • I really enjoyed this book as it had many twists and turns leaving you guessing who the killer was almost until the end when it seemed to wrap everything up in about three pages.Loved the build up but nit the hasty ending.


  • Good mystery that I never quite figured out. I just wished I realized that this was book 4 before I started reading it.
