    HAPPY PUB DAY! As a long time fan of this series I gotta ask; how has Rob Bryndza kept us holding bated breath for so many years?! Typically (maybe 90% of the time?) I lose interest in long running series after the third book; at this point the author has usually lost their mojo or become too repetitive for my taste, but not here. Bryndza has created a memorable cast full of heart, soul, and wit that isn't found elsewhere. It's no secret that pol...

    Deadly Secrets is highly addictive! If you pick this up, make sure you have time to read because you are not going to want to put it down! Gritty police procedural about a man in a gas mask attacking men and women across London. This is a thrilling, intense addition to the Erika Foster series! Unlike some other readers, this is only the second book in the series I have read, so my perspective might be a little different than others. Having recen...

    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...

    Dear Robert Bryndza, I have to give it to you... you certainly know how to hook, line, and sinker ;). Wow what a ride my friends! Deadly Secrets is the sixth in the Detective Erika Foster series... and my goodness I loved it! Having read the fifth Cold Blood in the series, I was disappointed... and it wasn't my favorite. BUT, Robert you have redeemed yourself with this one! Can I just say how much I LOVE Erika Foster!! Between her wearing high he...

    EXCERPT: Marissa reached up to put her key in the lock, but the gate creaked behind her. She froze. There was a faint scrape, and then a crunch of feet on the snow. She slowly turned. A figure in a long black trench coat stood behind her. Its face covered in a gas mask, with a hood made of shiny black leather, tightly enveloping the skull. Two large round glass eyeholes stared blankly, and the drum, or breathing apparatus, elongated the face down...

    Robert Bryndza delivers a stellar addition to this brilliant powerhouse of a series featuring the determined, 'take no prisoners' DCI Erika Foster, crime fiction set in London. This story opens up soon after the last book, it is Christmas and its a desperately cold freezing day. A hung over Mandy Brent encounters the harrowing and shocking sight of the frozen and blood drenched dead body of her 22 year old daughter, Marissa, just outside on the d...

    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....

    A darkening of the moon.....Marissa Lewis makes her way from the train platform in South London on a late frigid night on Christmas Eve. Her heavy fur-trimmed coat provides a cover for the burlesque dancer outfit she wears beneath it. But there's no hiding the questionable reputation that Marissa bears as her footsteps pick up speed.

    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...

    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...

    I'm not sure exactly how Robert Bryndza does it, but this series just doesn't get old! If you haven't checked it out yet, what have you been doing? Start at the beginning. I think it's possible to read these as standalones, but there's so many little details and character quirks that you'll miss. Start at the beginning, and don't be overwhelmed that there's six books already. They don't take very long to read. The last book was probably the darke...

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...

    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...

    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...
