What is it with these awesome new British Detective series that keep coming out? Like coffee and chocolate, they’re addictive. The Girl in the Ice is the first in Robert Bryndza’s new DCI Erika Foster series. Although an established writer, Bryndza is new to the crime novel scene. Wait, what? The guy who wrote this book is known for his romantic comedies? Impossible. But, apparently, true.

There was action right from the start in this electrifying book. I didn’t immediately feel the love, but soon discovered that I couldn’t put the book down. Or solve the question of, “Who done it?” before the author was ready. I love/hate it when that happens!

If you’re looking for a new series (which I wasn’t but now I’ll have to make room), here’s a promising new Detective to keep you occupied. Five stars! ( )

This debut novel introduces the reader to DCI Erika Foster who has been transferred from Manchester to the London Metropolitan Police. From the moment we meet her, we know she's damaged in some way. Before long we discover that she's suffering from the loss (and guilt) of leading a police action where officers died, including her husband. As soon as she arrives she's sent out on her first case, the discovery of the body of a young woman has been found frozen in a pond.

The victim, Andrea Douglas-Browne, is a beautiful girl from a wealthy family where their political connections keep the case from progressing as well as Erika would like. She doesn't help things by refusing to follow the rules and investigating the case in her own way. The killer is watching Erika from afar, so the reader knows that soon there will be some sort of clash between them.

Erika's backstory is interesting, even though I found her difficult to like. The secondary characters are all well written and the identity of the killer is still a mystery until you get close to the end. I feel like the author has a lot of promise and, because I was always interested in reading the story, I would definitely read the next book in the series.

I liked this book a lot. Most of the time at least.
Liked the story, the fact that it wasn't very predictable, it kept my attention very good. Look forward to the next book in the series.

What I didn't like very much was the fact that Foster was VERY stubborn, going her own way, but still (mostly) getting away with it.
In organisations like that, I expect that you can have a rogue officer, but I imagine that his/her work is then also embedded in the more structural & formal ways of investigating. Informal ways of working get lots of things done, but when there's a boss who disapproves and there are many clashes throughout the book, for me that affects the story and how I like it. ( )

This was brilliant; it's a proper edge of your seat ride and as the end approached, I read way beyond my bedtime as I couldn't possibly have gone to sleep without finishing the book.

I loved Erika Foster; she's lost everything so she has nothing left to lose. She throws herself into the Girl in the Ice case, putting herself in danger as she vows to crack the case at any cost. Although Erika comes across as a tough nut, she's recently suffered a personal tragedy and she is slightly fragile underneath her hardened exterior. This gives her the perfect creme egg mix of hard on the outside and soft on the inside.

With such a fast pace, I found myself having to stop my eyes from reading too fast as my eyes swept over each page gathering clues to the killer's identity. I really didn't guess who the perpetrator was as Robert Bryndza cleverly drew my interest in other directions and I was suspicious of all the wrong people.

As Erika starts to look into other cold cases (no pun intended) and gets closer to revealing the killer, I was on tenterhooks as the killer turned their attention on to Erika. I have no doubt that this is going to be a fantastic series and I will be standing in line when the next Erica Foster book comes out.

The Girl in the Ice is a fast paced, chilling thriller with a tough and extremely likeable heroine.

I received this e-book from the publisher, Bookouture, via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. ( )
