ABOUT THE BOOK
Detective Erika Foster is back in FATAL WITNESS – with a chilling new serial killer case in Robert Bryndza’s multi-million bestselling crime thriller series!
How do you find a killer who has destroyed all the evidence?
Detective Erika Foster is on a late-night walk near her new house in Blackheath when she stumbles upon the brutal murder of Vicky Clarke, a true-crime podcaster.
Erika is assigned to the case and discovers that Vicky had been working on a new podcast episode about a sexual predator who preys on young female students around South London, staking out his victims in their halls of residence before breaking in at the dead of night.
When Erika discovers that Vicky’s notes and sound recordings were stolen from her flat at the time of her murder, it leads her to believe that Vicky was close to unmasking the attacker, and she was killed to guarantee her silence.
The case takes on a disturbing twist when the body of a young Bulgarian student doctor is discovered in the same building, and this makes Erika question everything she thought she knew about Vicky. With very little evidence, the clock is ticking to find the killer before he strikes again.
I was delighted to see that Detective Erica Foster was to make another much-awaited appearance in the launch of book 7 of this hugely successful series. It feels like she has never been away, but get everything you need at hand because once you venture into the first chapter, everything kicks off. Erica isn’t even on duty when she finds herself up to the neck with the next serial killer to cross her path.
Robert Bryndza has an incredible talent that isolates me from the world around me until I finish the last page. Every word on every page I read, makes me feel like I am a bystander in his stories, and it is so intense as my heart races and my skin tingles.
The story has a modern feel to it, with the murder of Vicky Clarke, a true-crime podcaster, especially when it seems that all her research has been stolen from her flat too. But nothing is ever so simple for Erika as the killer claims another victim. Oh my, this is edge-of-your-seat reading, as the story spirals to yet another deep and dark level.
Erica is back in this full-on mind-blowing, all-action belter! Bring it on!
