Last Breath by Robert Bryndza

Many thanks to NetGalley and to the publisher for granting me an advance readers copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

It's crazy to think that I read the first book in the Erika Foster novel in August, and now book 4 has just been published. How does it compare to The Girl in the Ice, Night Stalker and Dark Water? Let's find out!

After the body of a young woman is found dumped in a dumpster, Erika Foster is one of the first on the scene. Linking this death to a previous one, Erika and her team set out to hunt down the killer before he can strike again, especially as there is another girl missing in similar circumstances to the first two. Reassigned as SIO on the case, she and her team have to work fast as the bodies are usually found just a few days after they go missing.

This was a very gritty thriller, strongly formed and wonderfully thought out. There were many tense scenes throughout the book but the build up to the finale is so intense I didn't want to put it down! Every dead end, every twist, every bit of success flooded me with disappointment, excitement and happiness that it took me through the full range of emotions possible. In my opinion, this is the best book in the series by far and deservedly gets a high rating!

Star rating: 5/5
