Detective Erika Foster #4
He’s your perfect date. You’re his next victim.
When the tortured body of a young woman is found in a dumpster, her eyes swollen shut and her clothes soaked with blood, Detective Erika Foster is one of the first at the crime scene. The trouble is, this time, it’s not her case.
While she fights to secure her place on the investigation team, Erika can’t help but get involved and quickly finds a link to the unsolved murder of a woman four months earlier. Dumped in a similar location, both women have identical wounds – a fatal incision to their femoral artery.
Stalking his victims online, the killer is preying on young pretty women using a fake identity. How will Erika catch a murderer who doesn’t seem to exist?
Then another girl is abducted while waiting for a date. Erika and her team must get to her before she becomes another dead victim, and, come face to face with a terrifyingly sadistic individual.
Gripping, tense and impossible to put down, Last Breath will have you on the edge of your seat, racing to the final dramatic page.
She’s fearless. Respected. Unstoppable. Detective Erika Foster will catch a killer, whatever it takes.
My Review – 5 stars
Oh. My. Gosh!
They just keep getting better.
If you’ve never read any books by Robert Bryndza….why not?!
Start now! Start with the ‘Girl in the Ice’…go on, do it, do it now!!
It didn’t disappoint. What a great plot.
Robert Bryndza has the ability to hook me in straight away.
The current obsession with social media played a big part in this plot. Watch who you accept as friends on Facebook! It really does make me think about privacy settings, location settings and being tagged in places.
I felt quite sorry for the girls who were excited to go on a date with this good-looking guy. Only for it to be someone quite different.
During the investigation I was intrigued by the killer avoiding the CCTV cameras, something I never give a thought to. I suppose when you have nothing to hide you don’t even think about that kind of thing.
Some of the characters really creeped me out, especially the farmer’s son and the farmer’s milking helper.
The farmer and his wife were not the nicest either….thinking more of the farmhand than their son at times. They had their own sadness from the past to deal with I guess.
I really felt for Bryony. She just wanted a boyfriend.
The descriptions of that old oast house were so vivid….what a nightmare!
On to Erika Foster, I love how she constantly goes on her instinct, her gut feeling. Even when the top brass try to rein her in. She is a great, ballsy and smart character. It doesn’t always go down well with her superiors but it makes her team of Peterson and Moss fiercely loyal. I saw a bit more of her softer side this time, and that was nice.
The pace of the plot kept me turning the pages. Kept the adrenaline going for sure!
Erika Foster is a definite favourite of mine.
