To commit the perfect murder, you need the perfect cover.
On an icy morning, a mother wakes to find her daughter’s blood-soaked body frozen to the road. Who would carry out such a 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.
I’m so excited to be helping in the publication day blast for Deadly Secrets today!
I can’t believe this is already the sixth book in this outstanding series! If you haven’t started getting aquatinted with Erika Foster and the work of the amazing Robert Bryndza, what are you waiting for?! Seriously, start back at the first book and come and catch up with me, I don’t think you’ll regret it for a minute, it stands out amongst other books and is one of those rare series that gets better with each installment.
This has a super creepy premise, there’s a killer on the loose who wears a gas mask during the act, typing that out gave me the chills and there are plenty more to be found. There are no flashbacks here, only some personal ones from Erika as she remembers certain events from back when Mark was alive and staying solely in the present day made for a refreshing change of pace. The story is twisty but no overly so, just enough surprises to stay believable and plenty of action to keep things exciting.
Once again, Bryndza continues to peel back the layers and uncover more about Erika, just when I feel like I know everything there is to know about this complicated woman he reveals some new aspect that only serves to make me like her even more than I already do. The dynamics of the team are interesting as always, I’m so invested in their lives and relationships with each at this point that seeing what they’re up to is always a treat. If you’re a fan of this series, you’ll be delighted with some of the insights into Erika and team, ahem especially Peterson! 😱 🤐
Highly recommended by me, not only this book, but the whole series, it’s fantastic and Bryndza brings something new to the table with every single book.
Deadly Secrets in three words: Gripping, Pacey and Multifaceted.
Overall rating: 5/5
