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.
The global bestselling author of The Girl in the Ice is back with a heart-racing, electrifying thriller. If you love Angela Marsons, Rachel Abbott and Karin Slaughter, you’ll be hooked on Robert Bryndza.
I was really excited to read this book, as I have not read a thriller in a long time. I was really blown away by this book. Excellent read, very gripping from the very first chapter. I loved how each chapter was short but with a hook at the end to keep you reading. I found myself thinking about the book during the day (when I should have been working) and planning when I could get back to it. The plot has so many twists and turns, it keeps the pages turning quickly.
I loved DCI Erika Foster as our central character. She is a feisty, intelligent woman who is still grieving her husband’s death of two years ago. I think the grief propels her to make rash decisions and defy orders. This is not a negative though, as it makes her real, with real feelings and struggles. She has a lot of imperfections but that is what makes her so charming.
I have not read Robert Bryndza’s first book, The Girl in the Ice, but I plan to. I am so excited to have found this author and look forward to reading more from him.
