Publisher's Summary

If the Night Stalker is watching, you're already dead.
In the dead of a swelteringly hot summer's night, Detective Erika Foster is called to a murder scene. The victim, a doctor, is found suffocated in bed. His wrists are bound and his eyes bulging through a clear plastic bag tied tight over his head.
A few days later, another victim is found dead in exactly the same circumstances. As Erika and her team start digging deeper, they discover a calculated serial killer - stalking their victims before choosing the right moment to strike.
The victims are all single men, with very private lives. Why are their pasts shrouded in secrecy? And what links them to the killer?
As a heat wave descends upon London, Erika will do everything to stop the Night Stalker before the body count rises, even if it means risking her job. But the victims might not be the only ones being watched: Erika's own life could be on the line.

Another Great Police Procedural From BryndzaR

This is second and last available Erika Foster novel. Surely more are to come. Foster is a middle aged, brilliant detective. She is also abrasive, oppositional, loyal and tenacious. While many of her superiors and equals resent her harsh personality and obnoxious (in their minds) confidence, her subordinates are fiercely loyal and dedicated to her.

The police work and inner department politics are sharp and realistic. Early on in the story the killer is revealed. The question is how will Foster and her team catch the killer. One key suspect is exonerated because he is under surveillance for other grevious crimes. This presents the first inner department politics. Next a rival, though bumbling DCI blunders into her investigation. No one, regardless of rank, stops Erika when she knows she is right.

You need not read the books in order. However, if you enjoy police procedurals you must read this book!

Another great detective thriller by Robert Bryndza

The Detective Erica Foster series started with the excellent The Girl in the Ice and continues with the even better The Night Stalker. The Detective Chief Inspector Erica Foster series is set in the London area of England in the current day. Foster is still grieving the loss her husband and fellow detective two years ago. She blames herself for his death because she was in charge of the raid that took his life.

In this novel the tough as nails Foster is removed from the investigation of a serial killer when her friend and medical examiner is arrested for the murders. Foster is convinced the serial killer is a female, so she continues the investigation despite being ordered not to do so. She is more than a bit stubborn and insubordinate.

The Night Stalker is a brilliantly written and well narrated novel. I hope there will be more books in the series.
