The Girl in the Ice – Robert Bryndza

Another book I have to thank Ali (The Sunday Feeling) for. I swear I get all of my books from that gorgeous lady! She thought I would enjoy it as its the first book in a detective series and she knows I have a strong love for the Helen Grace series, which is worth a read.

Anyhow let’s dive in shall we.

Oh and shall I let you into a little secret, this is not the first time I am writing this post. I actually wrote it finished it, scheduled it only to loose it. Great work George. Anyhow, enough backstory!


Her eyes are wide open. Her lips parted as if to speak. Her dead body frozen in the ice…She is not the only one.

When a young boy discovers the body of a woman beneath a thick sheet of ice in a South London park, Detective Erika Foster is called in to lead the murder investigation.

The victim, a beautiful young socialite, appeared to have the perfect life. Yet when Erika begins to dig deeper, she starts to connect the dots between the murder and the killings of three prostitutes, all found strangled, hands bound and dumped in water around London.

What dark secrets is the girl in the ice hiding?

As Erika inches closer to uncovering the truth, the killer is closing in on Erika.

The last investigation Erika led went badly wrong… resulting in the death of her husband. With her career hanging by a thread, Erika must now battle her own personal demons as well as a killer more deadly than any she’s faced before. But will she get to him before he strikes again?

A page-turning thriller packed with suspense. If you like Angela Marsons, Rachel Abbott and Karin Slaughter, discover Rob Bryndza’s new series today – at a special launch price.

Synopsis from GoodReads.


This book made me happy, I have to start by saying this. Happy because I have found another female detective series which I love. Yes I have only read one book, but I really did enjoy the book.

The book starts of in the point of view of the first victim, Andrea Douglas-Brown, who was murdered and later found under a layer of ice. In steps DCI Foster to solve the case, which isn’t easy as she experiences a lot of resistance to solving the murder her own way.

If you enjoyed the Helen Grace series then I really do think you will enjoy this. It was nice to read something which was addictive and new. Its nice to get to know new characters and a new storyline. I have to say though, there wasn’t a lot of backstory for Erika, which was refreshing in all truth. I would like some more in the next story but it was great to read how she approached her case in her own way, despite some resistance.

Towards the end, the pace of the book sped up and it kept me wanting more and more.

I am excited to read book number two, The Night Stalker to see how the series continues.

Have you read this? What did you think?

Until next time,

George x

You can buy this book on Amazon and other book stores.

    Even though I cant see this being as addictive and brilliant as Helen Grace (its not possible right?) I think we will enjoy the series! x

      I agree, I think it would take a serious book to knock HG off my top list! 🙈
