The Girl in the Ice by Robert Bryndza πŸ“š a book review πŸ’™

August 29, 2016

One of my secret pleasures is watching horror movies. More thrillers than horrors in fact. It’s something my mother and I love to do together. Once the boys are in bed we put on a good thriller, dim the lights and enjoy.

I am not as brave as my mother who is not fazed by even the scariest of movies, but I’m normally watching through the gaps between my fingers at the scariest parts.

Suspenseful books are also a great pleasure. I adore happy fun love filled books, but sometimes you just want to be shocked and frightened. Not in real life of course.

The Book –

Her eyes are wide open. Her lips parted as if to speak. Her dead body frozen in the ice…She is not the only one.

When a young boy discovers the body of a woman beneath a thick sheet of ice in a South London park, Detective Erika Foster is called in to lead the murder investigation.

The victim, a beautiful young socialite, appeared to have the perfect life. Yet when Erika begins to dig deeper, she starts to connect the dots between the murder and the killings of three prostitutes, all found strangled, hands bound and dumped in water around London.

What dark secrets is the girl in the ice hiding?

As Erika inches closer to uncovering the truth, the killer is closing in on Erika.

The last investigation Erika led went badly wrong… resulting in the death of her husband. With her career hanging by a thread, Erika must now battle her own personal demons as well as a killer more deadly than any she’s faced before. But will she get to him before he strikes again?

A page-turning thriller packed with suspense.

Verdict –

I just read recently that the talented author of this book Robert Bryndza has collectively sold 1million copies of The Girl in the Ice & the follow up to this story The Night Stalker.

I must say I am not suprised one bit.

The Girl in the Ice had me hooked from the word go.

I normally allocate myself a few days to read & review my list of books over the summer months. But with this book it was read and reviewed in one day! A definite record for Mother in London.

I loved the detective, Erika Foster. She is focused and doesn’t care what anyone thinks. It was more like watching a really good detective movie than reading a book. It flowed so naturally and was so well written I got quite scared.

I cannot wait to read The Night Stalker next which I will review in a separate blog.

In the meantime you can get The Girl in the Ice on Amazon UK now. You can find out more about the author at the link below –
