REVIEW: Last Breath (Detective Erika Foster #4) by Robert Bryndza

Blurb:  He’s your perfect date. You’re his next victim.

When the tortured body of a young woman is found in a dumpster, her eyes swollen shut and her clothes soaked with blood, Detective Erika Foster is one of the first at the crime scene. The trouble is, this time, it’s not her case.

While she fights to secure her place on the investigation team, Erika can’t help but get involved and quickly finds a link to the unsolved murder of a woman four months earlier. Dumped in a similar location, both women have identical wounds – a fatal incision to their femoral artery.

Stalking his victims online, the killer is preying on young pretty women using a fake identity. How will Erika catch a murderer who doesn’t seem to exist?

Then another girl is abducted while waiting for a date. Erika and her team must get to her before she becomes another dead victim, and, come face to face with a terrifyingly sadistic individual.

Gripping, tense and impossible to put down, Last Breath will have you on the edge of your seat, racing to the final dramatic page.


Review:  5 STARS *****  (This is book 4 of 4)

Thank you to the publisher and netgalley for providing an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Okay let me begin with.. I LOVE this series. Seriously, Robert Bryndza/ Erika Foster – I’m a big fan. Robert can do no wrong.

You’d think by book 4 in the Detective Erika Foster series, that it would start to get a little stale, maybe a bit boring reading about the same Detective, but let me tell you now, this might just be the best one yet. I’m just mad I read it so quick because now it’s over!

Last Breath starts with a young woman’s body being found in a dumpster, battered and bruised almost beyond recognition. Erika Foster has had many ups and downs over the series and fights to get her spot on the investigative team to solve this murder. Little does she know that this is just the beginning and there will be almost a cat and mouse game to find the killer.

Robert’s descriptions of everything, including the killer made me shudder and everytime a character felt sickened by a scene, so did I, that’s how descriptive and fantastic a writer he is.

Cannot wait for the next one.
