The Blurb

If the Night Stalker is watching, you’re already dead…

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.

My Thoughts

Oh, Man alive, that was perfect, just perfect.

This is the second Detective Erika Foster book and Robert Bryndza has upped the ante and has written a truly fantastic book. From the first word to the last I was captivated and thrown deep into the world of Erika Foster.

Robert Bryndza has a great ability to transport you to the world he has created, to make you feel that you are Erika for the length of the book. I had so many emotions reading this book and I felt the heat, the stifling, suffocating heat.

Throughout the book the steadfast growth of all the characters makes great reading and It was good to learn more of the background to Erikas life without it feeling repetitive or Crime Fiction by numbers.

The book is split between the hunt for the killer and the killer. So you know who the antagonist is early on. I loved the idea and it made for exciting reading.

With Books like this Robert Bryndza has every chance of becoming one of the greats of Crime Fiction and the publisher Bookouture has yet again proven itself to be one of the leaders in the genre.
