Publisher's Summary

To commit the perfect murder, you need the perfect cover.

On a cold icy morning, a mother wakes to find her daughter’s blood-soaked body frozen to the road. Who would carry out such a horrific killing on the victim’s doorstep?

Straight off her last harrowing case, Detective Erika Foster is feeling fragile but determined to lead the investigation. As she sets to work, she finds reports of assaults in the same quiet South London suburb where the woman was killed. One chilling detail links them to the murder victim - they were all attacked by a figure in black wearing a gas mask.

Erika is on the hunt for a killer with a terrifying calling card. The case gets more complicated when she uncovers a tangled web of secrets surrounding the death of the beautiful young woman.

Yet just as Erika begins to piece the clues together, she is forced to confront painful memories of her past. Erika must dig deep, stay focused and find the killer. Only this time, one of her own is in terrible danger....

From the global million-copy best-selling author comes a totally heart-racing, hold-your-breath listen that will keep you hooked until the very last minute.

Fascinating murder mystery; great detective work!

Robert Bryndza is among the best living authors of the modern detective/police procedural genre. Deadly Secrets, Book 6 in his Detective Erika Foster series, is as close to perfection as any novel I have read. Erika Foster is among my favorite protagonists. Jan Cramer's narration is outstanding. I highly recommend Deadly Secrets and the other novels in the Erika Foster series.

Love Erika Foster

I stumbled across this series of books and I was hooked after book 1! I hope Robert Bryndza will continue her character! Every story was well written and intriguing!
Jan Cramer’s narration was spectacular! I would truly, laugh, cry and even get angry with the characters. She does such an incredible job pulling you in to each character.
Well Done!!

Another great sequel, but...

This sequel seemed to fall a little flat towards the end. The story was drug out with a lot of whodunnit prospects that went back and forth. Glad to see someone else get some spotlight and very happy to see Erika finally getting herself together. Just not enough excitement in this one.

hopefully real coppers are not this disfunctional,

if real coppers were this stupid, dumb, thick, slow and disfunctional then how would any crime really be solved?? - still it was a good book to listen to, another crime investigation about to start perhaps??

Absolutely perfect

The Erika Foster books are about my favourite of all crime series and the latest book is one of the best. Ericka is a fascinating character who I have grown to really care about and the other characters, both goodies and baddies, are real and convincing. The plot develops quickly and moves in a range of different directions before coming together in an unexpected and very satisfying conclusion.

Jan Cramer is one of my favourite narrators, she really inhabits all the characters.

Can’t wait for the next one.

Unexpected ending

Up to the standard of the rest of this series. I must say I was getting a bit fed up with dour Erika, always disobeying orders, behaving appallingly and getting away with it. Nice to hear a bit more about her and her colleagues. Clever plot, and an unexpected ending. Jan Cramer is an excellent narrator

Painful narration

I found the general story ok but the narration was poor. It was as if she had done little to no preparation and simply picked up the book and read it for the first time. Every character sounded aggressive, especially the male police officers and she failed to accurately express the emotions behind each character and the context of what they were saying. The overall result was very flat and very quickly read....disapointing as I think it could have been so much better if not for this. Just my opinion but there it is.

***Mind blowing ending***

Robert Bryndza never fail to blow my mind, this is an incredibly intelligent and well thought off plot and the characters are well developed. It's gripping and totally sucked me in from beginning and not prepared for the austounding twist ending that blew my mind. Detective Erika Foster took a bit of a backseat in favour of Detective Kate Moss, it chilled my bones when the killer got hold of Moss. Jan Cramer is brilliant as always. I am happy for Detective Petersen but sad for Erika I do hope she will get her happy ending.
