DEADLY SECRETS is the 6th book in the Detective Erika Foster series by author, Robert Bryndza and having read all his previous books in the series, they keep getting better. I was so involved in this story that I resented any interruptions. Just leave me alone and let me read! I loved this book!

To commit the perfect murder, you need the perfect cover.

Late Christmas Eve, Marissa Lewis stepped off the train to head home from a club in London, where she worked as a burlesque dancer. When she reached home and put her key in the lock, she heard something and turned.

“A figure in a long black trench coat…face covered in a gas mask, with a hood made of shiny black leather…black gloves, and in its’ left hand had a long thin knife.”

A mother wakes to find her daughter’s blood-soaked body frozen to the road. Who would do such a horrific killing?

DCI Erika Foster of the London Metropolitan Police on her way to a Christmas lunch, she stumbles across, a crime scene, where a young woman had been found stabbed to death on her doorstep. Forget the lunch…duty calls! She much prefers this to the social scene.

DCI Erika Foster is back leading the investigation with her team including; DI Moss and DI Peterson, who had been off for Christmas. As she sets to work, she finds reports of assaults in the same quiet South London suburb where the woman was killed. One chilling detail links them to the murder victim – they were all attacked by a figure in black wearing a gas mask. The assaults had all taken place around train stations.

Erika is on the hunt for a serial killer. The case gets more complicated when she uncovers a tangled web of secrets surrounding the death of the beautiful young woman.

In piecing together, the clues Erika is forced to confront painful memories of her past.

In this novel there was a nice mix of work and personal life for all the characters. Having read all Mr. Bryndza’s novels, it is a treat to follow this series and the journey of the development of the characters. I highly recommend both this series and this novel.

Many thanks to my favorite publisher, Bookouture via Netgalley for my copy.
