Last Breath – Robert Bryndza
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.
Without coming across like a gushing Fanboy, I love the Erika Foster books. Robert Bryndza is well on his way to becoming one of the best writers in this genre. As with the other books in the series the story flows at a good pace at leaves you wanting more. It took me longer to read this one as I kept stopping because I just didnt want it to end. What I really liked about this one was the characterisation of the killer, it was spot on. The balance between the two narratives made the book a genuine page turner. How these books havent been snapped up for TV yet I dont know, they are perfect for it.
In all honesty I cant fault this one at all, everything was perfect from beginning to end.
