The Girl in the Ice
The Girl in the Ice | Robert Bryndza
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? A page-turning thriller packed with suspense. If you like Angela Marsons, Rachel Abbot and Karin Slaughter, discover Rob Bryndza's new series today. Watch out for more from DCI Erika Foster. She's fearless. Respected. Unstoppable. Detective Erika Foster will catch a killer, whatever it takes.

This book has been on my bookshelf for so long and I had been wanting to read it but got onto another book. I can‘t believe it took me so long to start this series. I loved it! Definitely one of my favorite books. I loved Erika Foster and I can‘t wait to read the rest of the series! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟!

I'm always searching for the next great murder mystery/serial series. This book was quite intriguing, and kept me very engaged. I didn't feel it was too scary, though it wasn't boring either. I also feel like this would be the perfect winter horror read, because it's based in the dead of winter.

I recommend this book to anyone looking for a good thriller...

📚📚Happy Reading!📚📚

Well, the #24in48readathon has officially come to a close. I only read for one day this time so I only got to finish 1 book (though I‘m SO close to finishing my audiobook too) and I gotta day, 14 hours and 40 minutes isn‘t too shabby a time considering I spent yesterday crafting with the girls! I can‘t wait for the next #24in48!

So objectively this was not a good book. In fact it was prett bad - as a thriller the attempts to create intrigue were transparent and as a police procedural it really needed police who followed some sort of procedure. And yet.... I stayed up late to finish it and really liked the characters. I‘d probably give another of the series a go if only to check in and see how they get on !

The covers to this series are really eye catching, & I was looking forward to reading them, but after this one I have changed my mind.

The characters were more like moody teenagers than adults, police officers to boot. Basic errors & ‘shake your head‘ moments such as attempting to question a potential witness in a pub where anyone could overhear are frankly ridiculous. 2⭐️

This title caught my eye; a woman is found #Frozen in a sheet of ice in a London park. Her hands are bound, similarly 3 prostitutes have all been discovered in the same manner, strangled, bound & #frozen.

The Girl In The Ice is a gripping read with many 'where is this going?' moments. Foster leads a zealous murder investigation to find out the truth. She's not a likeable character; brash, rude & unrelenting but she is about getting the job done right! I was gripped by the good pace which shows the frustration of an investigation slipping away.

When the body of a woman was discovered beneath a thick sheet of ice in a South London park, she appeared to be a beautiful young socialite with a #perfectlife . Investigations led by Detective Erika Foster revealed a connection between the victim and the killings of three prostitutes, all found strangled, hands bound and dumped in water.
Sounds like a good crime thriller with good reviews on GR. Stacked! 😊

Day Two: #ReadingResolutions photo challenge -#CreepyCharacters I had a hard time picking this morning. There are sooooo many books with creepy characters. I almost picked You by Caroline Kepnes because Joe creeped me out a ton. Felt like I needed 17 showers after reading each chapter. The Girl in the Ice is also a good one too tho!!! Anyone else think this was creepingly good? 😁

thereadingowlvina I think Lisbeth Salander of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo is pretty creepy. She's smart but complex - sociopath/psychoparh. Can never figure her out 😮 5y

🐈Decently paced thriller w/good suspense & intrigue.
🐈MC is gutsy & empathetic towards victims.
🐈Women could‘ve been written more realistically; certain traits show the author is amateur when writing from female perspective.
🐈Lesbian officer w/family who‘s portrayal felt natural & normal.
🐈Decent 1st instalment.
🐈TW: rape, animal & physical abuse, ableist language, racist commentary towards Eastern Europeans, mildly sexist comments.

An interesting read but the main character is all over the place and so cliché. The ending was a surprise so that was appreciated. The police investigation was also not so well written and oftentimes not credible. Overall, a fairly good debut.

I nearly ran out of time to read this as it was due back at the library so did speed a little to the end. It was a good read though. Erika is not your typical detective, she's been through a lot and isn't quite through it all yet. We see her make mistakes and develop as a character as the book goes on. I did suss out who was behind it but not right away which was good.

Tried this one awhile back and couldn't get into it. Debating trying again but when I saw it was due at the library, I was happy to give it back. Just couldn't get into it. Part of the reason was the English/ British spelling. I'm a stickler for spelling and seeing words like "kerb" instead of "curb" was bugging me. #cantwinthemall
