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.

Once Again an AMAZING Book

A twisty, turning ride through the darkness the world has to offer and just when you think the ride is over you are off again. I love these books. The characters are real and very relatable and their interactions are funny and well thought out. The narrator on this series is fabulous. She has the characters down. Definitely one of my faves.

Anxiously awaiting the next

Another fantastic installment of the Erica Foster tale. Story, subplots, twists, and exceptional audible performance make this one of the author’s best. Wonderful series - I would recommend all the Foster books and it’s a bonus to listen to them since they are terrifically performed. The audible versions add to quality of the entire story. Can’t wait for the next installment!

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
