Detective Erika Foster #5
She fell in love with a killer, now she’s one too.
The suitcase was badly rusted, and took Erika several attempts, but it yielded and sagged open as she unzipped it. Nothing could prepare her for what she would find inside…
When a battered suitcase containing the dismembered body of a young man washes up on the shore of the river Thames, Detective Erika Foster is shocked. She’s worked on some terrifying cases but never seen anything like this before.
As Erika and her team set to work, she makes the link with another victim – the body of a young woman dumped in an identical suitcase two weeks ago.
Erika quickly realises she’s on the trail of a serial killer who’s already made their next move. Yet just as Erika starts to make headway with the investigation, she is the victim of a brutal attack.
But nothing will stop Erika. As the body count rises, the twin daughters of her colleague Commander Marsh are abducted, and the stakes are higher than ever before. Can Erika save the lives of two innocent children before it’s too late? She’s running out of time and about to make a disturbing discovery…there’s more than one killer.
Brilliantly gripping, Cold Blood will have you hooked from the first page and holding your breath to the heart-stopping and shocking ending.
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!!
Here’s the link to The Girl in the Ice
I couldn’t wait to get started with this one. What a great plot. Robert Bryndza has the ability to hook me in straight away.
The character of Max really creeped me out, he was so unhinged and swung from one extreme to the other. Nina was completely bowled over by him though, and would do anything to make him happy.
On to Erika Foster. I love this woman! She is a great, ballsy and smart character. She speaks her mind…always. It doesn’t matter how superior her colleagues are it makes no difference.
We found about what happened to Peterson after the last book too. Nice to see Moss, a loyal member of her team. Jennifer Knight popped up too. The cast of characters in the force is a good mix. I feel I care about them and that has to be a good thing for an author to do.
A brilliant story, gripping and thrilling. Some unexpected twists and turns that made for an unputdownable book. Really gruesome too in parts.
I couldn’t stop reading, it’s packed with action and is very believable. I feel like it’s something you’d see in the news, one of those horrible things that shocks the nation.
I’ve recommended Robert Bryndza’s books to people all over the world. Everyone loves them, he’s a global superstar!! xx
