Cold Blood by Robert Bryndza

She fell in love with a killer, now she’s one too.

The suitcase was badly rusted, and took Erika several attempts, but it yielded and sagged open as she unzipped it. Nothing could prepare her for what she would find inside…

When a battered suitcase containing the dismembered body of a young man washes up on the shore of the river Thames, Detective Erika Foster is shocked. She’s worked on some terrifying cases but never seen anything like this before.

As Erika and her team set to work, she makes the link with another victim – the body of a young woman dumped in an identical suitcase two weeks ago.

Erika quickly realises she’s on the trail of a serial killer who’s already made their next move. Yet just as Erika starts to make headway with the investigation, she is the victim of a brutal attack.

But nothing will stop Erika. As the body count rises, the twin daughters of her colleague Commander Marsh are abducted, and the stakes are higher than ever before. Can Erika save the lives of two innocent children before it’s too late? She’s running out of time and about to make a disturbing discovery…there’s more than one killer.

Brilliantly gripping, Cold Blood will have you hooked from the first page and holding your breath to the heart-stopping and shocking ending.

Our Review

Once again Robert Bryndza has lived up to his reputation as a number one crime writer.

Cold Blood is the fifth in the Erika Foster series and is his darkest and most disturbing book yet with a story line that is as chilling as it is gripping.

Detective Erika Foster faces her toughest case when it seems a spate of killings are being carried out by not one but two cold blooded killers. There are so many twists and turns to this story which takes us along a very dark road and some scenes are quite upsetting.

I love Erika's friendship with Isaac Strong which has featured in all the books, he really cares about her which is what she needs when she discovers there are some people she can't trust.
The Characters are believable and time is taken to show how and why the baddies do what they do which I think is important and makes them multi-dimensional, I think it also ensures that the scenes are not gratuitous.

The build up of suspense thunders through this book like a freight train and it's certainly not for the faint hearted but for those who like an adrenaline rush then this is the book for you.
Once again I am waiting with baited breath for the next instalment of DI Erika Foster's life.
Huge thank you to Bookouture for the arc which I've reviewed voluntarily.
