    Very engaging.

    I love this series. I like the way the author writes. I did enjoy this book but I don’t think it’s his best work. The story line was good but some characters were not very convincing. Some situations I found hard to believe as being possible. Perhaps the book was written in a rush. Regardless, the writing is very engaging and extremely easy to follow. It makes a very fast read and entertaining. I’m looking forward to reading his next work.

    Police Procedural - Murder Mystery

    Deadly Secrets by Robert Bryndza A Detective Erika Foster Novel #6 Murder, Mystery and Misfortune befall more than one in this novel that is predominately a police procedural but also provides insight into families and some of the lives of characters Erika knows. The book starts out with the murder of Marissa – a young woman who earns some of her money doing burlesque dancing in theaters. She also makes money on the side in a variety of rather unethical ways. The murder is brutal and the killer masked so even the CCTV camera that has footage does not indicate who the murderer is. With other incidents occurring in which persons are attacked by someone wearing a gasmask like the one on the CCTV film the police believe that if they catch the masked man they will have their murderer. There are a few red herrings, a suicide, a number of people accosted, a police detective in danger, Erika’s father-in-law in need, and a surprise twist at the end that was perhaps not 100% believable but still unexpected adding a further dimension to the story. In some ways I would have preferred the masked man to be the only culprit but…I didn’t write the book. I enjoyed seeing how Erika is doing and would like to read more of her story in future books. I am not sure what I have missed in the previous four books but did not need to read them for this book to flow easily and stand as a story on its own. Thank you to NetGalley and Bookouture for the ARC – This is my honest review. 4 Stars

    Gripping

    I have read all Robert’s Erica Foster books and found that they were so gripping that I had trouble putting the reader down. The stories are all so readable with many red herrings thrown in to put you off the scent. Excellent and thoroughly recommended. Looking forward to the next in the series.

    Can't say enough about this series!

    Deadly Secrets by Robert Bryndza is the 6th in the Detective Erika Foster series. Robert Bryndza has done it again! This one sucks you right in with a rather creepy beginning to an amazing ending I didn’t see coming! My Synopsis: Erika has been having a rough time. She is just off another rough case, and although she is supposed to have Christmas day off, she can’t just drive past an active crime scene. What she finds is the body of a beautiful young woman dead in her own front yard, half buried and frozen in snow, with multiple stab wounds. A few more feet and she would have made it home safe and sound. As Erika looks around, she spies a young man in a tree, taking pictures. She gives chase, heels and all. His pictures, and a video on the young man’s phone will bring shock waves. As the case develops, she finds this young woman is not all she seems. She has many admirers, and more than one enemy. As well, a man wearing a gas mask is terrorizing both men and women in the area. Now Erika seems to have found a link between this man and her dead body. On a personal level, Erika has not dealt with her break-up with Peterson well, and now he is back at work, and has a secret of his own. She will also have to confront her past, deal with her aging father-in-law, and face her own age limitations. Erika will have to delegate this case so that she can handle a personal crisis. This delegation will leave one of her own in danger. My Opinions: Robert Bryndza has created a cast of characters that you can relate to. They may be great investigators, but they have everyday problems, and they don’t always handle them correctly. This makes them human, and endears the reader to them. The characters grow with every book, and the reader sees their depth. We get to see Erika’s more fragile side, and even a bit of a melt-down in a coffee-shop – which I thought was great, since all of us would have loved to do what she did! There is a lot of action in this book, and the pace is fast. It was really hard to put down. The plot takes a giant leap at the end that I did not see coming. I loved it.
