Publisher's Summary

She fell in love with a killer, now she's one too.
The suitcase was badly rusted, and took Erika several attempts, but it yielded and sagged open as she unzipped it. Nothing could prepare her for what she would find inside....
When a battered suitcase containing the dismembered body of a young man washes up on the shore of the river Thames, Detective Erika Foster is shocked. She's worked on some terrifying cases but never seen anything like this before.
As Erika and her team set to work, she makes the link with another victim - the body of a young woman dumped in an identical suitcase two weeks ago.
Erika quickly realizes she's on the trail of a serial killer who's already made their next move. Yet just as Erika starts to make headway with the investigation, she is the victim of a brutal attack.
But nothing will stop Erika. As the body count rises, the twin daughters of her colleague Commander Marsh are abducted, and the stakes are higher than ever before. Can Erika save the lives of two innocent children before it's too late? She's running out of time and about to make a disturbing discovery...there's more than one killer.
Brilliantly gripping, Cold Blood will have you hooked from the beginning and holding your breath to the heart-stopping and shocking ending.

It’s Cold Blooded Alright

Erika Foster is the toughest, most demanding Inspector in the police procedural genre. She known by her cohorts, superiors, and lovers as, in her words, “a raging bitch.” Yet she is also effective, thorough, persistent and that makes her invaluable to everyone. Most of all it makes her a character worth knowing to any fan of police procedurals.

Brynzda exposes the raw, emotional side of police work with clever humor, sexual tension, desperation to stop suffering and even killings, and frustrations with political and procedural handicaps. It’s captivating and fun to read.

What disturbs me about this book is the criminal element. And this isn’t necessarily a drawback. The author spends half the novel revealing the mind of a serial killer and the unraveling of a good girl gone bad. It’s painful to read about.

I recommend this to anyone who appreciates great police procedurals. Cold Blooded is part of a series, but it stands well enough on it’s own. In fact, each of the novels in this series can be read out of order. That’s great writing.

Author Robert Bryndza is among the elite...

...suspense mystery/thriller writers. Cold Blood is Book 5 in Bryndza's Detective Erika Foster series. In this serial murder mystery the primary antagonist takes evil and lack of concern for the lives of others to unimaginably low levels. The 5 star rating is an easy call, and had the top rating been 15 stars this novel would have earned that. Jan Cramer has narrated all Erika Foster novels perfectly.

I very highly recommend this new release!

Erika Foster is back!

Erika Forster, one of my favourite protagonists, is back and this series gets better and better with each book. This novel is darker, faster and more gruesome than the previous ones and I loved it! It will keep you on the edge of your seat and you will find it hard to put it down. At least I did.
Jan Cramer's narration is once again first-rate and makes listening to this audiobook a treat.
I can't recommend Robert Bryndza's books highly enough; a must read/listen to series!

Great pacing, it never stops. Better Narration too

Bryndza has outdone himself with his latest thrilling detective novel. I am fully invested in these characters and the world they live in. Erika is a very good character and never feels cliched. She doesn't say no to food like most characters like this and can sometimes even be funny. The story here is great though the side story of the drug dealers was a bit random but I get a feeling it will add to the overall story arc of Erika and her relationships. Jan Cramer seemed to try more, she was never awful, but always seemed to be too jolly for a detective story. Nina was also a very interesting character and I had no idea why she was included at first but when it clicks, it clicks.

the lead character is still smoking cigarettes.

Is this product placement? We the readers are alert to such things now. Everything else about the novel is great, the cigarette smoking scenes are irritating and harmful to public health. Also the Starbucks product scenes are annoying, particularly as they make terrible coffee. Lost a star for these reasons.

Another nail biter

I love this author's books. Can't say his name but I love his stories. I listen to these while I drive. Can't fall asleep through one of these.
