Beneath the water the body sank rapidly.  She would lie still and undisturbed for many years but above her on dry land, the nightmare was just beginning.

 

When Detective Erika Foster receives a tip off that key evidence for a major narcotics case was stashed in a disused quarry on the outskirts of London, she orders for it to be searched. From the thick sludge the drugs are recovered, but so is the skeleton of a young child.

 

The remains are quickly identified as seven-year-old Jessica Collins.  The missing girl who made headline news when she vanished twenty-six years ago.

 

As Erika tries to piece together new evidence with the old, she discovers a family harbouring secrets, a detective plagued by her failure to find Jessica, and the mysterious death of a man living by the quarry.

 

Is the suspect someone close to home? Someone doesn’t want this case solved. And they’ll do anything to stop Erika from finding the truth.

‘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?

Coco Pinchard always dreamed of being a successful writer, but then life got in the way. She married young, had a son, and put her dreams on hold... But now she's forty, and her first novel is about to be published! Her husband Daniel has greyed nicely into a silver fox, and her son Rosencrantz is all grown up. Shouldn't it be time to enjoy life?


That is, until the annual family Christmas when her hideous in-laws come to stay, and Coco opens her gift from Daniel. It's not the jewellery she chose, but an iPhone. This marks the start of Daniel's mid-life crisis and Coco catches him in bed with a younger woman.


The iPhone becomes a confessional, and as Coco's life unravels, she documents her seemingly endless (and often entertaining) run of bad luck through emails to loyal friends Christopher, an ageing trustafarian, and Marika, a slightly alcoholic schoolteacher.


Then Coco meets the hunky Adam and she's back in the world of dating as a single forty-something. Read the emails that tell the heart warming and often hilarious tale of Coco picking up the pieces, in this fun, feel-good Romantic Comedy.

Since Coco Pinchard found first husband Daniel in bed with another woman, she hasn't just picked up the pieces: she's now a best-selling author married to her hunky soul-mate Adam. She feels stronger and wiser and surely the second time round she'll have learnt from her mistakes?


But things aren't going quite according to plan... Adam has lost his job, Coco's grown-up son Rosencrantz seems to have derailed his life in spectacular fashion, and ex-mother-in-law Ethel keeps letting herself into the house thanks to an endless supply of spare keys. When literary agent Angie takes on Coco's arch rival, the indomitable Regina Battenberg, it looks as though things can't get any worse. And then Coco discovers she's pregnant; at 44.

Can she really go through it all again? Sleepless nights, stretch marks on top of stretch marks, and poo as a normal topic of conversation?

The third book in Robert Bryndza's bestselling Coco Pinchard series (which can also be enjoyed as a stand-alone story) is a hilarious diary with Coco's trademark wit and honesty, tracing the raging hormones and extraordinary twists that take her to motherhood for the second time.

Discover the first three heart-racing crime thrillers in the number one, multi-million-copy, bestselling series. Introducing Detective Erika Foster - she’s fearless, respected, unstoppable, and she will catch a killer, whatever it takes. 
The Girl in the Ice: 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? 

The Night Stalker: If the Night Stalker is watching, you’re already dead…

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.

A few days later, another victim is found dead, in exactly the same circumstances. As Erika and her team start digging deeper, they discover a calculated serial killer – stalking their victims before choosing the right moment to strike.

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.

Dark Water: Beneath the water the body sank rapidly. She would lie still and undisturbed for many years but above her on dry land, the nightmare was just beginning.

When Detective Erika Foster receives a tip off that key evidence for a major narcotics case was stashed in a disused quarry on the outskirts of London, she orders for it to be searched. From the thick sludge the drugs are recovered, but so is the skeleton of a young child.

The remains are quickly identified as seven-year-old Jessica Collins. The missing girl who made headline news when she vanished twenty-six years ago.

As Erika tries to piece together new evidence with the old, she discovers a family harbouring secrets, a detective plagued by her failure to find Jessica, and the mysterious death of a man living by the quarry. 

Is the suspect someone close to home? Someone doesn’t want this case solved. And they’ll do anything to stop Erika from finding the truth.

A sparkling feel-good comedy, which asks the question - how far would you go to get your child the must-have Christmas toy?


It's December 1992, and children are going crazy for the Tracy Island toy - almost as crazy as the parents! Christmas day is fast approaching and Coco Pinchard is desperately trying to track one down for her four-year-old son Rosencrantz. Throw into the mix a horrible boss, a lazy husband, and the prospect of her in-laws arriving for the festivities, and Coco wishes she could cancel Christmas and sail off to a desert island somewhere - preferably with the gorgeous-yet-unattainable Tom from work.


But retail therapy is at hand! Coco's faithful friends Chris and Marika rally round, and even her mother-in-law Ethel tries to help in her own eccentric way.


From dodgy dealings in a motorway lay-by, to extreme shopping in Hamley's with a Sylvanian Families fanatic, to having a go at the Blue Peter make-your-own Tracy Island, Coco tries everything in the hope that Rosencrantz will open his must-have toy on Christmas morning.

En el ocaso de una sofocante noche de calor, la detective Erika Foster recibe una llamada para asistir a la escena de un crimen. La víctima, un doctor, es hallado ahorcado en su cama. Sus muñecas están atadas y se perciben sus abultados ojos a través de una bolsa de plástico atada por encima de su cabeza.

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.

Met een ijzersterke hoofdpersoon waar lezers geen genoeg van zullen krijgen, voor de fans van Karin Slaughter en M.J. Arlidge

Haar ogen zijn wijd open. Haar lippen iets uiteen, alsof ze nog iets wil zeggen. Haar lichaam bevroren in het ijs. En ze is niet de enige...

Als het lichaam van een jonge vrouw wordt gevonden in een park in Zuid-Londen, wordt inspecteur Erika Foster ingeschakeld om het moordonderzoek te leiden. Het slachtoffer, de mooie, jonge en rijke Andrea Douglas-Brown, leek het perfecte leven te leiden. Haar vader is een belangrijk en invloedrijk man, haar verloofde een gerespecteerd zakenman. Toch lijken er duistere geheimen te zijn. Werden die het meisje fataal?

Als Erika dichter bij de waarheid komt, verschuift de aandacht van de moordenaar naar Erika zelf, wier laatste zaak verkeerd afliep. Zo verkeerd zelfs dat haar eigen man om het leven kwam. Terwijl haar politiecarrière aan een zijden draadje hangt, moet Erika haar eigen angsten overwinnen om een wrede moordenaar te slim af te zijn – voordat het te laat is.
