Description – If the Night Stalker is watching, you’re already dead…
In the dead of a swelteringly hot summer’s night, Detective Erika Foster is called to a murder scene. The victim, a doctor, is found suffocated in bed. His wrists are bound and his eyes bulging through a clear plastic bag tied tight over his head.
A few days later, another victim is found dead, in exactly the same circumstances. As Erika and her team start digging deeper, they discover a calculated serial killer – stalking their victims before choosing the right moment to strike.
The victims are all single men, with very private lives. Why are their pasts shrouded in secrecy? And what links them to the killer?
As a heat wave descends upon London, Erika will do everything to stop the Night Stalker before the body count rises, even if it means risking her job. But the victims might not be the only ones being watched… Erika’s own life could be on the line.

My thoughts – I seriously didn’t think that The Night Stalker could be any better than Robert Bryndza’s first book The Girl in the Ice but I have to say it could possibly be.
We’re back with Erika Foster for the second instalment and DCI Erika is on form yet again. Strong and intelligent she doesn’t let anything stand in her way to find this serial killer and reading along we find out a bit more about Erika and her teams personal lives which makes you feel a bit closer to the characters.
This was another fabulous read that had me gripped from page one, with a plot that’s gritty and full of suspense it was easy to get straight into the story. The author has a way of drawing you right in from page one then spitting you out on the last leaving you breathless.
I can’t wait to see what’s in store for Erika and her team next. This is the second book in the series and although it could be read as a standalone I highly recommend you read The Girl in the Ice first and get to know the characters like I have. Both books are fabulous reads and I highly recommend them.
A big thanks to Netgalley a Bookouture for provoding a copy in exchange for an honest review.
My Rating ~ 5/5
