If you haven’t picked up any of Robert Bryndza’s other books in the Erika Foster series then stop right there and go get a copy of The Girl in the Ice. You don’t NEED to have read the other books to enjoy this one but they are so good that you really should!
The body of a young woman is found in a dumpster. She had been tortured and cast aside as rubbish. Erika Foster is one of the first police officers at the scene. Unfortunately she’s on the Special Projects team working out of Bromley and she is overstepping the mark just by being here. As she desperately tries to get herself a place on the murder investigation team she uncovers a similar murder from four months earlier.
Both women were found in dumpsters, they had the same head wounds and cuts and both had been killed by a slash to the femoral artery. Erika is convinced that they are now looking for a serial killer. As the team start to piece the story together and realise that the women have been stalked on social media it all starts to take on an even more sinister tone.
Back for the fourth outing are our favourite motley crew of detectives. The brilliantly named Kate Moss, the enigmatic Peterson desperate to get closer to Erika and sour old Sparks. By now they feel like old friends and the dynamic between them all is just fantastic. As the chase to catch the killer progresses the tension mounts and time is running out for his latest victim…
