About the book:

To commit the perfect murder, you need the perfect cover. 

On a cold icy morning, a mother wakes to find her daughter’s blood-soaked body frozen to the road. Who would carry out such a horrific killing on the victim’s doorstep?

Straight off her last harrowing case, Detective Erika Foster is feeling fragile but determined to lead the investigation. As she sets to work, she finds reports of assaults in the same quiet South London suburb where the woman was killed. One chilling detail links them to the murder victim – they were all attacked by a figure in black wearing a gas mask.

Erika is on the hunt for a killer with a terrifying calling card. The case gets more complicated when she uncovers a tangled web of secrets surrounding the death of the beautiful young woman.

Yet just as Erika begins to piece the clues together, she is forced to confront painful memories of her past. Erika must dig deep, stay focused and find the killer. Only this time, one of her own is in terrible danger…

From the global million-copy bestselling author comes a totally heart-racing, hold-your-breath read that will keep you hooked until the very last page. 

my-review_43_orig - Edited

Deadly Secrets by Robert Bryndza is the sixth book in the Detective Erika Foster police procedural series. Each book in the series features a new case for Erika and her team to solve so if necessary they could be read by themselves but the character’s stories carry over from book to book for those that have followed the entire series.

In this new installment of the series a young woman is on her way home late at night alone when she is attacked. The next morning she is found with her blood freezing in the snow covered ground.

Erika was just on her way to a Christmas get together when she comes across the scene and with the detective on duty off at another crime Erika jumps into the case finding that killers don’t seem to take the holidays off. From the moment of inspecting the scene Erika and her team find themselves tracking down clues and putting together a list of suspects.

Ok folks, this is the sixth book of this series and I’m still reading them like clockwork so that alone should tell you how I feel about this gritty detective thriller. At this point I really feel like I’ve said it all but I’ll say it again…. pick up this series if you are a fan of police procedurals or just want to give them a try!

Returning to a crime with Erika and her team is a bit like returning to family at this point, family that will go to all lengths to catch their killer to keep others safe. The investigations are solid police work that doesn’t stop until the very end with plenty of twists and turns along the way that are sure to keep the pages turning.

I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.
