About this ebook

To commit the perfect murder, you need the perfect cover.


On a cold icy morning, a mother wakes to find her daughter’s blood-soaked body frozen to the road. Who would carry out such a horrific killing on the victim’s doorstep?


Straight off her last harrowing case, Detective Erika Foster is feeling fragile but determined to lead the investigation. As she sets to work, she finds reports of assaults in the same quiet South London suburb where the woman was killed.  One chilling detail links them to the murder victim – they were all attacked by a figure in black wearing a gas mask.


Erika is on the hunt for a killer with a terrifying calling card.  The case gets more complicated when she uncovers a tangled web of secrets surrounding the death of the beautiful young woman.


Yet just as Erika begins to piece the clues together, she is forced to confront painful memories of her past. Erika must dig deep, stay focused and find the killer. Only this time, one of her own is in terrible danger… 


From the global million-copy bestselling author comes a totally heart-racing, hold-your-breath read that will keep you hooked until the very last page.

4.5 Stars This is the latest in what has been a terrific series. Detective Erika Foster is back with her team. Several people have been assaulted by a man wearing a gas mask. One woman has been brutally killed by the same man. Erika is running into a wall concerning the murdered woman. Speaking to her friends, family, people she worked with in a burlesque show, Erika learns that the woman was not well liked. She also learned that the woman was blackmailing a man she had an affair with ... was planning on running away with another married man ... and leaving her mother with nothing. When Erika has a family emergency, she leaves the case in the hands of DI Kate Moss ... who almost immediately stumbles into a danger closer than she knows. I really enjoy following the investigation ... it certainly is not CSI. There are house to house investigations, interviewing all possible suspects searching for a motive. I like the mix of professional life and personal life of Erika, plus those of her team. This is a well-written book with memorable characters. Although 6th in this series, this one reads easily as a stand-alone. However, I always recommend starting at the beginning .... treat your self to a reading marathon ... you'll love it! Many thanks to the author, Bookouture, Netgalley for the advance digital copy of this crime fiction. Opinions expressed here are unbiased and entirely my own.

Robert Brenda never fails to capture the readers interest in the first few pages. As with his other five books featuring Erika Foster, I have dropped everything to binge read the book and left waiting for the next installment.
