In the dead of a swelteringly hot summer's night, Detective Erika Foster is called to a murder scene. The victim, a doctor, is found suffocated in bed. His wrists are bound and his eyes bulging through a clear plastic bag tied tight over his head.

The victims are all single men, with very private lives. Why are their pasts shrouded in secrecy? And what links them to the killer?
As a heat wave descends upon London, Erika will do everything to stop the Night Stalker before the body count rises, even if it means risking her job. But the victims might not be the only ones being watched Erika's own life could be on the line.
The global bestselling author of The Girl in the Ice is back with a heart-racing, electrifying thriller. If you love Angela Marsons, Rachel Abbott and Peter James, you'll be hooked on Robert Bryndza.
Watch out for more from DCI Erika Foster.
She's fearless. Respected. Unstoppable. Detective Erika Foster will catch a killer, whatever it takes.

Pocos días después, otra víctima es encontrada muerta; la escena del crimen es exactamente igual. Mientras Erika Foster y su equipo comienzan a profundizar en la investigación, pronto descubren que se enfrentan a un calculador asesino en serie, que acecha a sus víctimas antes de elegir el momento más oportuno para atacarlas.
Las víctimas son todos hombres solteros, con vidas privadas muy alejadas del foco público. ¿Por qué sus pasados están envueltos en tantos secretos? Y sobre todo, ¿qué es lo que les vinculaba a cada uno de ellos con el asesino?
Mientras Londres padece una ola de calor, Erika Foster hará todo lo posible para detener al acosador de la noche antes de que el número de asesinatos siga aumentando, incluso aunque tenga que poner en riesgo su carrera. Pero es muy probable que no solo las víctimas estén siendo acosadas; tal vez la vida de la propia Erika también este en juego.

‘This is men,’ said Gran. ‘When they vant you, but you don’t vant them, they stay. But let them know you vant them, they no longer need you, and they go! It’s like that movie, Nanny McPhee.’
Natalie Love has worked hard to have it all. She runs a successful London theatre that's about to host one of Hollywood's leading stars, Ryan Harrison. She’s pretty sure she’s found her man in yoga boyfriend Benjamin, despite his annoying habit of saying Namaste! every time he speaks. And her eccentric, glamorous Hungarian Gran is always on hand to offer sage advice and steaming bowls of goulash.
Life in the bright lights of London has always been Natalie's escape from her chaotic country family in rural Devon and Jamie, the childhood sweetheart she left at the altar fifteen years ago. Until he turns up at her theatre door...
Jamie is in town producing a West End show and with rivalry suddenly clouding old feelings, this isn’t quite the reunion Natalie was expecting.
Will Benjamin prove to be Natalie’s perfect match? With Ryan turning her head, Natalie is more confused than ever. And what about Jamie – could he be her second chance at first love?
Charming, hilarious and totally unputdownable, Miss Wrong and Mr Right will put a huge smile on your face and keep you guessing who Natalie’s ‘Mr Right’ is until the very last page.
