A Police Procedural Thriller with a bit of everything, and all of it good
DCI Erika Foster is the head of a Major Investigation Team in London. When a body is found, in a suite case, on the banks of the Thames, her team is assigned to the investigation. Or more to the fact, Foster Bullies her way forward to get her team on the investigation.
The body in the case has had his head removed, and his legs chopped off, so that he would fit. When a second body is found under the same circumstances, with the same damage to the body, Foster knows she is dealing with a serial killer.
As the bosses above her try to move the case to a different team Foster digs her heals in and insists her team are in the best to continue the investigation.
Following a betrayal by somebody she trusted Foster is injured in an attack and is off duty for nearly a month.
The case is passed to another team and eventually pushed to one side as unsolved.
On the day of her return to Duty, a third body in a case is found and connected to the first two. Her team are reinstated as the lead and Foster continues her investigation.
Foster is the main protagonist in this book but the story also follows the killers. As well as a tale of a police investigation it is also the story of how easy it is for an innocent person to become so infatuated with somebody they will end up committing hideous crimes.
This story moves at a fast pace, hardly allowing the reader any respite between crimes scenes.
This tied in with well written characters, all of who are easy to love, hate or empathise with makes this book a great read.
This book will resonate with real Police Officers. Bryndza has captured the frustrations of the front line Police Officers who are dealing with the effects of austerity.
