Review and rating by Brenda: 4 of 5 stars
Deadly Secrets is the sixth book in one of our favourite series and was another great read for us. The Girl In The Ice was one of the first sister reads that we did together making this a special series for us. We highly recommend if you haven’t started this series to start with that one. It really is too good to miss.
Norma and I were lost in a coulee reading Deadly Secrets with Susanne and we all really enjoyed reading this one. Things got a little rocky for Susanne and me with the last book to the series Cold Blood. We were left feeling a little uneasy about reading any future installments to the series, but we are happy to say Deadly Secrets left us happy sisters dancing in a coulee after reading it.
What really made Deadly Secrets such a great one for us was Robert Bryndza did such a great job balancing the case with the focus on our characters who we have grown to love. We see more of Erika and more into her personal life as she confronts some of her painful memories from her past. There is also some more focus on Moss and we all were very happy to see her take a bigger role in the case. We liked getting to know her a bit more.
Deadly Secrets starts off strong and keeps on going right to the brilliant ending that left us all very satisfied in our coulee. This is one not to be missed and we all highly recommend.
I am absolutely thrilled to say that ROBERT BRYNDZA has delivered another highly entertaining & enjoyable read here! I am a huge fan of Detective Erika Foster and this series and haven’t missed one yet. They are so good!
DEADLY SECRETS (Detective Erika Foster, #6) by ROBERT BRYNDZA is a fast-paced, dark, chilling, and gripping police procedural thriller that grabbed my attention immediately and held it right until that thrilling and unexpected ending.
ROBERT BRYNDZA delivers a well-written and captivating read here with a fresh and intriguing storyline. The characters are very likable, engaging, and they always keep me highly entertained. I really enjoy Bryndza’s writing style!
I absolutely love Erika Foster’s character and really enjoyed seeing her character a little more vulnerable in this book.
To sum it all up it was an entertaining, exciting, tense, fast-paced and a quick read with a satisfying ending. Would recommend!!
Literally, a Scream! Now, THIS is the Robert Bryndza we all know and love.
Hot off the heels of her last case, Erika Foster drives by the scene of a murder on Christmas Day and it immediately gets her attention. A woman’s cold, frozen body is found right outside of her home, with her neck slashed. Detectives Foster and McGorry investigate only to find that the body is that of 22-year-old Marissa, a burlesque dancer whose life was anything but ordinary. Meanwhile, a man in a gas mask is assaulting both men and women around town. Are the two related? Detective Moss works feverishly to figure it out before someone else gets hurt.
“Deadly Secrets” is heart-stopping and gritty. This installment includes all of our favorite detectives and also highlights McGorry and Moss specifically, which is a real treat. Foster’s vulnerabilities start to show through, thus, I’m excited to see what‘s next for her. This is one police procedural that increased my pulse rate from the get-go and didn’t let up. It is twisty and turny and crazy compelling and that ending? My gosh… while it might have been a little far-fetched for my liking, it sure got my attention and somehow, I just know it’ll get yours too.
