The Girl in the Ice: Detective Erika Foster Crime Thriller, Book 1 (Audible edition)
(review written on 13th November 2020)
I know I am VERY late to the Robert Bryndza party (sorry for taking so long, Steph Lawrence!), but I have thoroughly enjoyed listening to book one of the Detective Erika Foster series on Audible. It is really well narrated, which is essential when listening to an audio book. I can be really put off a story narrated by a voice that doesn’t seem to suit the story.
Erika is a likeable, and interesting character. I really felt for her having lost her husband so young. It must be hard returning to the job after such heart break, but I can understand her need to have something to focus on. She is certainly thrown back in at the deep end!
When a beautiful young socialite, with her whole life ahead of her, is discovered beneath ice in a London park an investigation begins. Little did they know how complicated and dangerous things would become as the investigation moves forward. There are so many twists and turns throughout this story. It’s so full of suspense. The short chapters add to the pace and increase the tension as the story progresses. Each leads us to a jaw dropping conclusion! I loved it!
This book is right up my street and I can’t wait to catch up with Erika, and the team, in book two!
