Publisher's Summary

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 and quickly finds a link to the unsolved murder of a woman four months earlier. Dumped in a similar location, both women have identical wounds - a fatal incision to the femoral artery.

Stalking his victims online, the killer is preying on young pretty women using a fake identity. How will Erika catch a murderer who doesn't seem to exist?

Then another girl is abducted while waiting for a date. Erika and her team must get to her before she becomes another dead victim and come face to face with a terrifyingly sadistic individual.

Gripping, tense, and impossible to turn off, Last Breath will have you on the edge of your seat until the final dramatic moment.

    "Erika Foster series is a must for procedural fans"

    Bryndza's Foster series is sharp, witty, clever and extremely entertaining.

    Foster is a self confessed "b___h. She is smart, indescreet, impulsive and demanding. She is constantly at odds with her peers and her superiors. And most of all she is a brilliant detective. The same can be said for Department Q's Carl Mork. So if you love Department Q you will love the Foster series.

    "Top notch police procedural"

    The combination of Bryndza's masterful craftsmanship and Cramer's brilliant performance once again creates a story you just can't stop listening to. I'm already eager for the next.

    "Another great addition"

    Robert Bryndza has written another great addition to the Erika Foster series. Jan Cramer did a wonderful job of bringing the characters to life. With plenty of twists, turns and thrills this is a great mystery:thriller. I highly recommend this book and series. Although this book could be read as a standalone, I suggest starting with The Girl in the Ice, as this is the first in the series.

    "Tense and nail-biting addition to series"

    As an Audible newbie last summer I became hooked on Bryndza's series. I snapped up the first when it appeared on Recommendations and can highly recommend Last Breath. Jan Cramer's narration is excellent and is as "atmospheric" as the story.

    "Love Erika Foster"

    Not as good as the first 3, especially when I was impatiently waiting...but good enough to want another. My favorite female sleuths: Erika Foster, Tracy Crossehite, Elise Sandburg, and Kim Stone. Need more stories!!!

    "This series just keeps getting better."
    What did you love best about Last Breath?

    Seeing Erika continue to grow and evolve. She's been through so much and continues to have to deal with set backs whether it's being overlooked for a promotion she deserves, dealing with Satan.... oh sorry, I meant Sparks, a new psycho on the loose in her district and so on..


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Last Breath?

    For me, it was knowing he the crazy serial killer was pretty early on and how said killer continually evaded capture.


    What about Jan Cramer’s performance did you like?

    Every-damn-thing. She's amazing. I want her to record a voicemail for my phone.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, but it took a couple of days.


    Any additional comments?

    This series just keeps getting better. Just when I start to think there's only so many books Bryndza can write within this world, this flow of madness that is Erika Foster's life... he goes and surprises me again. With the previous books you've definitely gotten a feel for the killers but you didn't really know them, not until near the end. Here you know who it is and as the story progresses you're given tidbits about spongebob psycho pants along with the why, where and how. At the same time the Author is weaving Erika's struggles and issues into the mix and it all just flows perfectly ending with a climax that left me breathless.

    "The Erika Foster series never disappoints!!"

    With Last Breath British author Robert Bryndza has another 5 star suspense thriller in his Detective Erika Foster series. Erika Foster is, in my opinion, as compelling a character as any homicide detective in novels currently in print; indeed, she may be the best. Prior to beginning the Erika Foster series with The Girl in the Ice Robert Bryndza was best known for writing romantic comedy novels much like those written by Nick Spalding, another Brit. After writing the four novels (so far) in this series he has firmly established himself as a top author of the suspense mystery genre. This four novel suspense thriller series is an absolute must read for those who like lots of action, intense suspense, and smart and decisive crime solving. British actor Jan Cramer as narrator is a perfect fit for Bryndza's novels. She is a gem as a narrator.

    "A gripping serial killer thriller!"

    The fourth outing for Detective Erika Foster who has fast become one of my favourite characters. She is feisty and rebellious but at the same time vulnerable and emotional.

    Robert Bryndza's writing goes from strength to strength.

    This is a great series so get reading. Highly recommended!

    "Another Corker by Robert!!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Last Breath to be better than the print version?

    I only listen to audible so i can not compare, however the narration by by jan Cramer is, as usual top notch, she really brings the characters to life


    What other book might you compare Last Breath to, and why?

    I hate comparing books with each other, so i am not going too, lets just say, Robert has done another phenomenal job on book 4!!!


    Have you listened to any of Jan Cramer’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    I think Jan has to be one of the best narrators out there, she always brings her all to the characters, bring them to life and giving them their characters. as apposed to other narrators out ther with very monotone boring voices. she brings a real spark to the books.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes definetly, alas, my schedule does not allow for this, however i did finish it within 4 days, so not bad going


    Any additional comments?

    Robert is a wonderful new author, all 4 of his Erika Fostr books have been superb. I am very excited for the next installment and hope i dont have to wait too long!!!

    What did you like most about Last Breath?

    I've read all of the previous Erika Foster books so the character continuation, as well as the new storyline, was great


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Last Breath?

    SPOILER ALERT!! Probably the death of Sparks, i thought his death may have been suspicious.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    SPOILER ALERT DCI Erika Foster in the commissioner's office with DCI Melanie Hudson after the news conference and before Sparks funeral


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    I'm now familiar with the characters and enjoy following their lives as well as their careers. Long may it continue.

    Any additional comments?

    I've enjoyed all of Robert Bryndza's books and this was the first one I listened to rather than read. I had previously returned a book read by Jan Cramer (Silent Scream) because the performance was awful. This time the performance was marginally better. I only considered this audio book because I had enjoyed all of Robert Bryndza's other books.
    Jan Cramer's performance was ok for the main character and the descriptions, but for all other characters her delivery and her accents (particularly the male characters) were awful. Overall I enjoyed the novel but Cramer's performance took a lot from it.
