    Robert Bryndza I salute you! The 6th in the hugely popular Detective Erika Foster series is nothing short of brilliant!It's a freezing cold snowy morning, when Mandy Brent awakes from her alcoholic haze to discover her daughter Marissa's blood soaked body, frozen to the ground just feet away from the the front doorstep.Marissa Lewis was a beautiful 22 year old, and worked as a burlesque dancer in London's strip clubs. She was well known in the cl...

    4.5 (rounded to 5 stars)Fab, fab, fab!! Mr. Bryndza has come up with another highly entertaining read in his terrific Erika Foster series. I wasn’t as keen on the last book, Cold Blood, because much of the focus was taken off Erika and her colleagues. This time they are back and totally hog all the “airtime”, just the way I like it.We have a two-pronged tale involving a dangerous stalker outfitted with a gas mask and the grisly murder of a ...

    4.5 StarsIf you have not read this series, do yourself a favor and check it out. Seriously, READ this series!!! This book works very well as a standalone novel, but I highly recommend that you go back to the very first book (The Girl in the Ice) and begin there!!!! I was lucky enough to get an ARC of the Girl in the Ice and it blew me away. I have been a HUGE fan of this Author and series ever since. This book begins with a murder of a young woma...

    4.5 stars, actually.If you're like me and enjoy a good detective series, I highly recommend this one (it's the sixth book featuring London Detective Erika Foster). She's a bit reminiscent of J.D. Robb's Lt. Eve Dallas - another of my favorites - like Eve, tough as nails, but with less of a secretive, angst-ridden background.The story begins not long after Erika's last case, and she's trying for some semblance of normalcy over the Christmas holida...

    The sixth in the Erika Foster series delivers as big a punch as the previous five. It’s Christmas Day, and you know things are bad when Erika is happier to investigate a murder she comes across then attending lunch at her boss’s house. Bryndza paints the perfect beginning as Erika attempts to manage the snowy crime scene dressed in a dress and heels. The book moves along at a good clip, with no drag. This is a well told police procedural. The...

    This is the 6th book in the Detective Erika Foster series by author Robert Bryndza and I can honestly say having read the previous 5 that they get better with each page that's read.There is no rest for Erika Foster even at Christmas. On her way to spend a festive meal she sees a crime scene and cannot resist getting involved. She finds the murdered body of burlesque dancer Marissa Lewis, whose body is frozen to the ground and her throat cut. Dete...

    DEADLY SECRETS is the 6th book in the Detective Erika Foster series by author, Robert Bryndza and having read all his previous books in the series, they keep getting better. I was so involved in this story that I resented any interruptions. Just leave me alone and let me read! I loved this book! To commit the perfect murder, you need the perfect cover. Late Christmas Eve, Marissa Lewis stepped off the train to head home from a club in London, whe...
  • Jan
    Another winner! Whelp-I'm going to have to come back and give this review a bit more love, as I'm so short on time right now, but I didn't want to just leave this as it was.For those who have not read any of the books in the series, let me stop you right here. You need to go immediately and grab book one The Girl In The Ice and settle in for a fantastic read.While these books would work as a stand alone, I think that there is so much more to gain...

  • Book Addict Shaun
    It’s no secret how much I adore Robert Bryndza and his fantastic Erika Foster series and I am writing this review still reeling from the ending he has just delivered here in Deadly Secrets. Talk about taking the reader by surprise. You will not see this ending coming. Deadly Secrets takes place over the Christmas period and opens with the brutal death of a burlesque dancer named Marissa. The mystery element here is brilliantly done because ther...

    Book 6 and only getting stronger! Such a massive fan of this series and Robert Bryndza so I was very very excited to have the opportunity to read an advanced copy.In this book we see more of Erika's relationships and those of her team. Without giving anything away it mixes it up a bit which I really liked. Erika is on her way to a Christmas Day lunch when she comes across a crime scene. A burlesque dancer has been found in her front yard with her...
  • The Book Review Café
    Deadly Secrets by Robert Bryndza is the sixth book in the Erika Foster crime series, at this point in a crime series I find it’s sometimes the pivotal book, in other words the book where my love affair with a series ends. I read so many books that I just haven’t got the time to invest in a series that’s lost it’s lustre, but fortunately once again Robert Bryndza has written another fabulous and worthy addition to the Detective Erika Foste...

    What can I say... Another fantastic Erika Foster book. Probably my fav as it goes really deep... Absolutely AMAZING!

    What starts off as something quite ordinary actually explodes into life in the final chapters and produces an ending impossible to predict but beautiful in its execution. On a cold winters morning the body of a young attractive burlesque dancer is discover frozen outside her home. As the investigation develops the perpetrator is identified as a tall man dressed in black wearing a gas mask. When a number of further attacks are recorded the race is...
  • Suzanne
    Yet again, another gripping book in the Erika Foster series. In this story Marissa Lewis is brutally murdered right at her front door, it's Christmas Eve and no one saw or heard a thing. There appears to be no evidence in the way of DNA and a long list of possible suspects. Marissa is a mystery because you don't know who is telling the truth about her.About half way through the book I was absolutely convinced that I knew who the killer was, but a...
  • Annette
    I am a huge fan of Robert Bryndza's DCI Erika Foster series and in my opinion the books just get better and better. A great storyline, plenty of suspense and a chilling twist. I particularly like the background information on the characters which helps immensely into getting the feel of the books. I seriously did not want the book to finish even though I was desperate for the outcome.

    Full review to follow.
  • The Cats Mother
    This is the sixth in the excellent Erika Foster series, and since I caught up with the last one only a few months ago, I was thrilled to receive an advance copy to review, rather than having to wait for it’s normal release. It is another well plotted police procedural about a DCI working in South London, who is super driven to catch murderers, in spite of her tragic past.Deadly Secrets is set only ten or so days after the events of Cold Blood, ...
  • Todd Simpson
    Simply Splendid!! This is another fabulous story by Robert Bryndza. He certainly has a talent when it comes to writing entertaining Thrillers, and I’ve really enjoyed all six books in the series. I was so sure that I had picked the killer in this story, and I was pleasantly surprised that in the end I wasn’t even close to being correct. One of the standouts for me is the detail and background he puts into each one of the characters, and that...
  • Chris Nolan
    Once again Robert Bryndza has written a gripping, enthralling and intriguing story which springs surprises to the very end. As always, the level of writing is excellent and the dialogue is convincing and authentic. The central story of a burlesque artist murdered in her front garden on Christmas Eve is fascinating and the personal live of the principal cops is nicely portrayed. A splendid read!

    4.5 StarsI was a bit worried before starting this one, the last book of the Erika Foster series was kind of a disappointment for me and i was afraid i won't enjoy this one either. Fortunately i was worrying for nothing and i liked this new book of the series a lot.A girl was found brutally murdered on the doorsteps of her own home, and with each passing day of the investigation and with every new lead, new secrets were uncovered and it turned out...
