Her eyes are wide open. Her lips parted as if to speak. Her dead body frozen in the ice…She is not the only one.
When a young boy discovers the body of a woman beneath a thick sheet of ice in a South London park, Detective Erika Foster is called in to lead the murder investigation.
The victim, a beautiful young socialite, appeared to have the perfect life. Yet when Erika begins to dig deeper, she starts to connect the dots between the murder and the killings of three prostitutes, all found strangled, hands bound and dumped in water around London.
What dark secrets is the girl in the ice hiding?
As Erika inches closer to uncovering the truth, the killer is closing in on Erika.
The last investigation Erika led went badly wrong… resulting in the death of her husband. With her career hanging by a thread, Erika must now battle her own personal demons as well as a killer more deadly than any she’s faced before. But will she get to him before he strikes again?
A page-turning thriller packed with suspense. If you like Angela Marsons, Rachel Abbott and Karin Slaughter, discover Rob Bryndza’s new series today – at a special launch price.
Watch out for more from DCI Erika Foster
She’s fearless. Respected. Unstoppable. Detective Erika Foster will catch a killer, whatever it takes.
The Girl In The Ice is Robert Bryndza’s first crime thriller. The novel features DCI Erika Foster who is another fantastic heroine. This new series is on par with Angela Marson’s Kim Stone novels and I will definitely be returning for more.
DCI Foster has just arrived at Lewisham Row Police Station in London. She has been drafted in to lead the investigation into the murder of Andrea Douglas-Brown the daughter of a top Labour peer. The case is huge in the media, and when politics become involved Erika knows she will have to work hard to find her killer. She certainly has to push for her lines of enquiry to be investigated and I really felt her frustration when her superiors were not taking her seriously.
There was some excellent humour in the book; I particularly liked the joke about Kate Moss when Foster is chatting to one of her colleagues with the same name. The atmosphere in the book is chilling and the action is fast paced and hard hitting. I liked the twist at the end which totally hit me out of the blue; it really wasn’t what I was expecting. Robert kept me guessing right till the end, I never could be sure in which direction the book was heading.
The Girl In The Ice is a captivating crime thriller, I will definitely be reading The Night Stalker (the next book in the series). Five stars from me!
