Cold Blood: A gripping serial killer thr... Cold Blood: A gripping serial killer thriller that will take your breath away (Detective Erika Foster Book 5) - Robert Bryndza

With thanks to Netgalley and Bookoutre for this ARC in exchange for an open and honest review.

 

I love the Erica Foster series and I am so glad I was given the opportunity to read this book before the official release on 20/09/17.

 

I have read all five books in this series and I think Cold Blood is the best book yet.  Detective.Chief Inspector Foster and her friend/colleague Detective Inspector Kate Moss are called to the River Thames where the dead body of a man was found on the beach.  The man had been dismembered and put into a suitcase.  Two weeks later the dismembered body of a female in a suitcase is found further up the shore.  Erica and Kate have to find out if the victims knew each other and why were they murdered.

 

During the investigation Erica is attacked by ruthless drug dealers. She later finds out one of her colleagues was heavily In debt to the dealers, in desperation they provided confidential information to pay off the debt.

 

In between chapters are diary excerpts from 18 year old Nina Hargreaves and her boyfriend Max.  Nina instantly fell in love with Max who is in thirties.   The diary extracts show how Max manipulated Nina until she was cut off from work, friends and family.  The couple definitely had parallels to the infamous child murderers who killed together in the North of England in the sixties.  Max who thinks he is an intellectual who has never been given a break, and Nina who will do anything Max asks.

 

I am sorry Erica's friend Isaac Strong only appeared in the background of the story.  I hope he will appear more in the next book.

 

Cold Blood was utterly

 

compelling.  The tension was so high I read the last 60 % of the story In one sitting.  Congratulations Robert you deserve your success.

Reading progress update: I've read 80%.
The Bride Wore Black - Cornell Woolrich

I started this last night as my head start book for Halloween bingo and now I've totally screwed myself!

 

I can't finish it if I want it to count! But I want to knoooowwwww what the hell is going on this book. It's brilliant.

 

There are five sections. Each section has three chapters. The first is called Woman, and describes the murder for that section. The second is the name of the victim. And the third discusses the investigation.

 

The woman is killing men, and making it look like an accident. What is the connection between the men? Why is she murdering them? What the hell is happening here?

 

The plot is simple. The prose is stripped down noir, with all of the urban, nocturnal elements that I expect from this kind of a mystery. 

 

Can Cornell Woolrich sustain this to the end? I don't know, and I can't find out until TOMORROW.

MY REVIEW

 

LOVIN’ THAT COVER

 

Hello. Meet Felix. He’s a genius. But he is all evil.

 

Have a phobia. He wants to know about it, then use it against you.

 

Let me count the ways a person can die.

 

Each chapter begins with a morbid picture, hinting at the upcoming torture.

 

Ellie Douglas will take you on a horror trip that may have you squirming in your seat, brushing imaginary critters from your arm, glancing at flickering shadows out of the corner of your eye…then laughing at your silliness. If you weren’t afraid before, you will be now.

 

You will need a strong stomach…and maybe a barf bucket.

 

I loved it…but then so much death, torture, blood and guts, that I needed a break. I actually became bored with it. This is killing, just to kill. I love serial killers and I want  to know their motivation, the WHY of it. What made this so necessary for him?

 

And then…it’s just done. I felt lost…

 

I voluntarily reviewed a copy of Fear Inducer by Ellie Douglas.

The Serial Killer's Daughter: A totally gripping thriller full of shocking twists - Lesley Welsh

Woah! Don Tyler is one scary dude. He is definitely one I would not like to meet in a dark alley. Actually, he is not one I would like to meet in broad daylight even, anywhere. I can truthfully say that this book scared the crap out of me. This guy was relentless. Heartless and hell bent to get whatever and whoever he wanted. I finished reading this book about 2:30 in the morning. I HAD to start another book, just to get this guy out of my mind. There was no way I was sleeping with him still on my mind.

Definitely a great read and if your into creepy, scary, a book that should be right up your alley.

Thanks to Bookouture and Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest, unbiased review. Kudos to the author, you are one sick woman! HA!!

Kiss the Girls
Kiss the Girls - James Patterson

Like the first book in this series, Kiss the Girls is a fast-paced read that kept me from putting it down. It has some gruesome details of murders and rape and isn't a story for everyone. I liked the connection to the Underground Railroad which was ironic since I'm also reading The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead. I liked the ending of this story too although, I won't go into that.

 

Alex Cross learned that his niece is missing. She was away at College in North Carolina and had been missing for 4 days before the police had contacted her family. The local police wouldn't give them any information so Alix decided to go in person. It was like stepping backward through time where a black man gets no respect.  Once he was there he found that there were several girls missing from Duke University and they were all beautiful, educated women. Alex starts his own investigation hoping to find his niece alive. The story gets intense very fast when they get a lead in LA and they find out they may be dealing with more than one serial killer.

 

Yup, I'll be reading more of this series.
