Last Breath – Robert Bryndza @bookouture @RobertBryndza



He’s your perfect date. You’re his next victim. When the tortured body of a young woman is found in a dumpster, her eyes swollen shut and her clothes soaked with blood, Detective Erika Foster is one of the first at the crime scene. The trouble is, this time, it’s not her case. While she fights to secure her place on the investigation team, Erika can’t help but get involved.

My thoughts :

Hard to believe we’re already up to the fourth book in this series and Erika Foster is back with a bang!

Stuck in a boring office job and drowning in administrative paperwork, she’s determined to get back to where she belongs : the murder investigative team. So when the body of a young woman is found in a dumpster, she immediately grabs the opportunity to attend the scene.

This is another page turner and quite a quick read. Or maybe that was me, swiping the pages like a mad woman as the action built up. Erika’s going through some changes, showing more emotions and vulnerability. A side to her we’ve not seen too much of. (Maybe she’s pregnant? 😉 ) It’s always a good thing to see more character development along the way. Don’t fret, she hasn’t changed that much. She’s still fiery, outspoken and impulsive.

The reader knows pretty early on who the killer is but that didn’t bother me at all. I thought it was quite fascinating to see how their mind works and how they try to keep up the pretence of living a normal life while Erika and her team are desperately trying to figure out who they’re chasing before they strike again.

Sometimes you start to build up expectations and worry you may be feeling left disappointed. It happens quite a bit in series. Not just in books, but tv show seasons too. (I’m looking at you “Lost”.) But not in this case, as Robert Bryndza is amazingly consistent.

Last Breath is an excellent addition to this series and quite possibly the best one so far. Bring on the next one!

Many thanks to Bookouture and Netgalley for my advanced copy which I chose to review.

Last Breath will be published on April 12th.

    When the newest book in a series is the best one… that’s a good sign 😀

    I’m ashamed to say I still haven’t read any of the books in this series, despite having the first two in my Kindle! But the author writes so fast I’ll never catch up, haha! I’m glad the series doesn’t lose its momentum as stories are added to the series 🙂 Great review!
