In the dead of a swelteringly hot summer’s night, Detective Erika Foster is called to a murder scene. The victim, a doctor, is found suffocated in bed. His wrists are bound and his eyes bulging through a clear plastic bag tied tight over his head.
A few days later, another victim is found dead, in exactly the same circumstances. As Erika and her team start digging deeper, they discover a calculated serial killer – stalking their victims before choosing the right moment to strike.
The victims are all single men, with very private lives. Why are their pasts shrouded in secrecy? And what links them to the killer?
As a heat wave descends upon London, Erika will do everything to stop the Night Stalker before the body count rises, even if it means risking her job. But the victims might not be the only ones being watched… Erika’s own life could be on the line.
The global bestselling author of The Girl in the Ice is back with a heart-racing, electrifying thriller. If you love Angela Marsons, Rachel Abbott and Peter James, you’ll be hooked on Robert Bryndza.
Watch out for more from DCI Erika Foster.
She’s fearless. Respected. Unstoppable. Detective Erika Foster will catch a killer, whatever it takes.
1. THE GIRL IN THE ICE
2. THE NIGHT STALKER
A huge great big 5/5 from me
Wowzers... another awesome read.
I thought the Girl In the Ice was good, but this series of books is just getting better. I always worry when I have read the first book, if the second book can be anywhere near as good, but I didn't need to worry this is a 5* + read.
Here we are back again with Detective Erika Foster, A lady who seems to have her own set of rules, and doesn't always do things by the book.
This story is set in a heatwave, which seems appropriate to me at the minute as while writing this review i'm sat in the garden eating icecream, and melting.
Erika and team are tasked to find a killer, and a horrible killer it is. It doesn't take long to realise we have a serial killer on the loose. But what have the victims got in common if anything. A Dr, an Author. Did the victims know each other? Something somewhere must link these victims. Or do we had a disturbed killer that is just killing random people.
One or two creepy moments in this book, and i'm sure most people reading this, will check at least once that there is no one hidden under their bed.
This book is certainly one of those books you get lost in, eager to read and find out what is going on, but then as you get towards the end, you don't want it to finish there is so much packed into the pages of this book it's breath taking, heart pounding stuff.
I've enjoyed getting to know Erika more in this book and think this is going to turn into one hell of an amazing series of books. I just hope Robert can continue to produce books this good.
Super big thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for an ARC of this book. It was freaking awesome.
