Review:The Girl In The Ice (DCI Erika Foster #1) by Robert Bryndza


girl in the ice


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?


my review

Since starting my blog in 2014 I have really got into Detective type thriller books so when I saw this to review I was really happy – so thank you Net Galley and Bookouture for a chance to review and of course this is my honest review which are my own opinions.

Its only February (well January when I read this book) but all ready I think I have found one of my top books of the year.

The book really did really does live up to the thriller tag it has been given.  I was so impressed by the plot and narrative and felt this all moved along at a really good speed. At certain point I could not read this fast enough to know what was going to happen next in the story.  I found to start with I did not like Erika but as the book unfolded and the character was built more I found that I really liked her  and respected her.

The Girl in the Ice was a fabulous introduction to DCI Erika Foster. I am already desperate to get my little reviewer hands on ”THE NIGHT STALKER” which I hear is coming very soon. I also look forward to getting to know Erika more.
