My review of Last Breath by Robert Bryndza

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 their 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.

I loved this book and thought that it was just brilliant! I have been a fan of Robert Bryndza’s books for some years now and have really enjoyed the Erika Foster series after he made the transition over in to the very competitive crime genre. I have thoroughly enjoyed and loved every Erika book in the series so far and for me the stories and characters have just developed as the series have progressed.

This book is a real page turner and I read it in just over a day (work got in the way!) and I already cannot wait for the next one in the series. This for me is easily the best one so far and really deserves its 5 stars – thoroughly enjoyable and loved the story from start to end.
