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.
The global bestselling author of The Girl in the Ice is back with a heart-racing, electrifying thriller.
Wow! Where do I begin? I'm in a bit of a daze after finishing this book in just one sitting - I simply couldn't put it down! Robert Bryndza's writing style is intelligent and his storytelling compelling. I was drawn in from the very outset and swept along on the white water raft that is The Night Stalker, clinging on for dear life through the twists and turns until I was flung out at the conclusion, utterly spent.
I really like that we get to know who the killer is at the beginning of the book and so have some understanding of why they kill and how they pick their victims. Their reasoning is kind of understandable - in a strange way, I actually had some empathy for the killer!
Detective Erika Foster is one of my favourite detectives. She's feisty yet flawed, as are all the best detectives, and it's most definitely to her advantage as she pursues the answers even when she is removed from the case for personal reasons.
Although this is the second book in the Detective Foster series, it reads well as a stand alone, so it's not essential to read the first book prior to this one, but I do recommend The Girl in the Ice, as it's simply a fantastic read.
I wholeheartedly recommend The Night Stalker to fans of crime fiction and police procedurals. I cannot wait to see what awaits Detective Foster in her next case!
Special thanks to Bookouture, Robert Bryndza and Netgalley for providing an ARC in return for my honest review.
