Rating: 4 stars
Summary (from Amazon):
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?
That was an exciting, addictive novel. I had trouble putting it down (I’m human and not that young, I need to sleep). This books is fast paced, surprising and very well written.
I really liked the MC, DCI Erica Foster, but sometimes I wanted to grab her, shake her and scream What the hell are you doing?!?! She’s intelligent, but sometimes she doesn’t make the right choices.
The clues to who the murderer is are smart and well placed. I figured out who the person was (the author made a choice to not make it clear if it was a man or a woman) but there was a twist related to it that I did not see coming.
I loved this book, I love how real and human the MC is, and I can’t wait to read more on this series.
I’d like to thank NetGalley, Bookouture and author Robert Bryndza for proving me with an ARC of The Girl In The Ice in exchange for an honest review.
