      Blog Tour is live I wasn t quite sure what to think going into Cold Blood I ve seen some less than glowing reviews floating around from readers I trust, which made me nervous I have 5 starred the previous four novels, as this series is in my top three currently running most anticipated storylines, and we all know it s easy to burnout on these books the longer they run I devoured this particular installment in a mad rush because I simply couldn t put it down, which made me realize two things 1 Ev [...]

      Just hearing that DI Erika Foster is back, is enough to send me into raptures I love this series.This time around, we have a suitcase containing a body, that has washed ashore on the river Thames The body has been badly beaten and dismembered which makes ID particularly difficult to achieve When a further body is discovered a few weeks later in exactly the same manner, the investigation begins in earnest.It soon becomes clear that a serial killer is at work, but just as Erika begins to place pie [...]

      First and foremost, a large thank you to NetGalley, Robert Bryndza, and Bookouture for providing me with a copy of this publication, which allows me to provide you with an unbiased review.DCI Erika Foster is back, and none too soon for series fans As Robert Bryndza continues to impress with his dark police procedurals, his fan base grows exponentially as chatter of the series calibre When Foster and her team discover a suitcase submerged in the water, no one could have predicted what might await [...]

      I ve been a huge fan of Robert Bryndza s Erica Foster series With each book, I wonder if the streak will continue I m pleased to say it does This time round Erika is investigating a double murder, two bodies chopped up and stuffed into suitcases sent floating down the Thames One body has over 50 packets of cocaine in the stomach Was this some sort of drug deal gone wrong If so, why were the drugs left in the body The book moves along at a good clip with lots of intertwining stories to keep you e [...]

      I read this one as a stand alone and it worked fine, but I know I missed a lot of background on Detective Erika Foster I did enjoy her strong willed character and would definitely like to go back and read from the series This book seemed to focus on the killers and I would have liked of Erika and her colleagues, but maybe that is because I read this as a stand alone The author did a great job with character development because the evilness of the killers really came through and I didn t like [...]

      The fifth excellent book in this great series I really like Erika Foster She speaks without thinking and often offends people but at least she says what she feels and stands up for herself Maybe not a comfortable person to have around in real life but great for a book character Bryndza always enjoys the macabre and in this book the bodies are chopped up and fitted into suitcases We have the usual horribly descriptive pathology scenes and then we have lots and lots of competent police work result [...]

      EXCERPT The fingers poking through the hole in the brown material were swollen, with blackened fingernails Moss gently worked the sand away from the seams, and exposed the rusted zipper It took Erika several gentle tugs, but it yielded, and the suitcase sagged open as she unzipped Moss moved to help, and they slowly lifted it open A little water spilled out, and the naked body of a man was crammed inside Moss stepped backwards, putting her arm up to her nose The smell of rotting flesh and stagna [...]

      Book five in the Erika Foster series might just be the most disturbing yet There were moments that were hard for this fan of dark stories to read Another interesting case with characters we ve gotten to know and love mostly We also get chapters from the perspectives of the thankfully fictional Max and Nina I certainly would not want to meet Max in a dark alley He is endlessly disturbing, only getting creepier as the story goes on.A suitcase washes up on shore, but this one doesn t contain travel [...]

      Intricate, riveting, and creepy Cold Blood is an engrossing, chilling police procedural that highlights just how easily some people can be swayed and manipulated into doing the most horrific things and reminds us that desperate people will do almost anything, at any cost to protect themselves.The writing is bold and crisp The characters are resilient, impulsive, and troubled And the plot, told from differing points of view, keeps you on the edge of your seat from start to finish as it whips you [...]
