Dark Water (Detective Erika Foster, #3)Dark Water by Robert Bryndza

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Listened February 25 to March 5, 2017

I got to know DCI Erika Foster in A Girl in the Ice then I got a deeper look and understanding of her in The Night Stalker and admire how she has grown in Dark Waters. She has become one of my favourite characters and I look forward to more of her in The Last Breath.

Dark Waters is a tense, gripping and somewhat disturbing story for me that starts off with DCI Foster doing something different but soon back doing what she does best, investigating a murder. This time of a child, now this is not the kind of storyline I really care for and at first I struggled with the enjoyment of this book, but that didn’t last long. What really makes this a tense and gripping read for me is Robert Bryndza’s ability to slowly reveal little clues as you follow along with the investigation and try to piece together the crime.

Even though you could read Dark Water as a standalone, I would highly recommend starting with The Girl in the Ice to really get the feel of Bryndza’s style of writing and to connect with the well-developed characters. Also they are just so good you don’t want to miss any. I have pre-ordered my kindle copy of The Last Breath and am looking forward to reading it.
