This is book two of the Erika Foster series. I don’t feel that I can say that Robert Bryndza is fast becoming my new favourite thriller author, as I believe I have said that at least times this year about other authors I have discovered. So instead I will say that Erika Foster is by far one of my favourite leading female characters.
Where to begin with Erika…. As a character, she is great, and as a female character, she is brilliant. I love how she has been written to be a strong, independent, passionate, driven person, who can still be thoughtful, emotional and at times funny. Above all, Erika is a believable character. You could imagine many Erika’s existing in the world. There is no “damsel in distress” or “my life is only useful if there is a male in it” going on with this character. For that, I love her.
This book is another great novel by Robert. The story is about a serial killer who is killing males in the same way. Erika needs to find out who is doing this and why so she can put a stop to it. I do not want to give too much away, but I will say that the characters are great, the pace of the novel is perfect, the build up of suspense is great and the ending is satisfying. This book had enough intrigue and mystery around it to well and truly keep you engaged without having to create a mind map to keep track of the characters and storyline.
A great book, I give it 5 stars.
