This was a 5-star satisfying and excellent read! I thought this was even better than the other two books in this series, how does this author do that? It was an all-around great read from start to finish which was intense and thrilling!

DARK WATER has another tense, gripping and suspenseful storyline written by ROBERT BRYNDZA that grabbed my attention once again from the very first few pages of this book. I found the tangled plot much more appealing this go round and seemed to flow so much better than the first two novels in this series. I thought it was well developed and played out flawlessly, I was totally engrossed in what I was reading as the suspense and tension developed. The title of this book was brilliant and I found the cover quite appealing. All three of the DCI Erika Foster books have awesome titles and covers.

I was a little confused at the beginning of the book as I forgot that Erika left the Murder Investigation Team and I had to re-read the last chapter of NIGHT STALKER to refresh my memory. I have a really short memory! She is now based at the Bromley Police Station with the Projects Team but don’t get too disappointed like I did as the recurring characters of the last two books are still in this novel.

I absolutely love DCI Erika Foster as she has mellowed ever so slightly in DARK WATER but is still that extremely likeable, interesting, entertaining, strong character and is just as cutting and determined to get results.

The reveal and details were a total surprise for me as I did not guess correctly who the suspect was and the way that it was delivered by ROBERT BRYNDZA was gripping, filled with lots of suspense and tension.

Thank you so much to Mary Beth, Stephanie, and Kris for including me in your buddy read!

It was an enjoyable, quick and easy fast-paced thriller with a satisfying ending. Would highly recommend!!
