Description

Beneath the water the body sank rapidly. She would lie still and undisturbed for many years, but above her on dry land, the nightmare was just beginning.

When Detective Erika Foster receives a tip-off that key evidence for a major narcotics case was stashed in a disused quarry on the outskirts of London, she orders for it to be searched. From the thick sludge the drugs are recovered, but so is the skeleton of a young child. The remains are quickly identified as seven-year-old Jessica Collins. The missing girl who made headline news 26 years ago.

As Erika tries to piece together new evidence with the old, she must dig deeper and find out more about the fractured Collins family and the original detective, Amanda Baker - a woman plagued by her failure to find Jessica. Erika soon realizes this is going to be one of the most complex and demanding cases she has ever taken on.

Is the suspect someone close to home? Someone is keeping secrets. Someone who doesn't want this case solved. And they'll do anything to stop Erika from finding the truth.

Strong Entry in a Consistent Series

This book started off a little jarring. It took a little while to realize some time had passed from the previous book and Erika was no longer at the same division with the same partners. Luckily many of the secondary characters from the first two books were eventually brought back in to participate in this book as well. That is good news because I think one of the strengths of the series is the multitude of flawed and/or interesting secondary characters. Several new characters were also introduced that I hope play a recurring role. I would like to know more about her sister and the new female chief.

The mystery was engaging as well. I admit I had only figured out who two/thirds of the bad guys were, so a good portion of the ending was surprising to me.

The narrator is not bad. She just adds nothing to the experience. Which is in some ways a good thing because she isn't overly theatrical. At the same time, I would never decide to listen to an audiobook just because she was the narrator, and there are some narrators that I will read anything they narrate.

Overall a good edition to the series and I will read the next installment.

Erika Foster, England's Answer To Dept Q

Harry Hole, Department Q, arguably the best police procedurals on Audible, and now Erika Foster. All feature 3 brilliant, but severely flawed detectives working uunder politically charged pressure. All 3 are are centered around anti-social heroes with an indescribable charisma.

Dark Water centers on Erika Foster's team taking on a 23 year old cold case; the murder of a 7 year old girl. They are under the spotlight of both the media and a new regime in the police department. And they are infiltrated by traitors within their ranks.

This is another gripping, fast paced thriller easily worth your time.

Excellent Storyline That Kept Me Guessing Until the Very End

I love all Robert Bryndza's Erika Foster books. He does an excellent job weaving a tale that captivates me until I finish the entire novel—usually in one sitting. This novel is no different. I highly recommend this book and all the books in this series. I also look forward to more novels in this series. I would love to see Erika get the praise and love she so desperately needs and deserves. (I would also like to see a couple of her nemeses get what they deserve as well....lol)

Captivating, plenty of red herrings

The author has done it again with his third DCI Erika Foster book. I can't get enough. Highly recommendable. Jan Cramer's narration is excellent.

predictable

had Hope's for this as it was reviewed as the British answer to Dept Q and I loved that series. But, this does not even come close to the quality and originality of Dept Q series. this uses predictable dialog and characters - too formulaic to even be interesting

Best of the series

Best so far of the series. Didn't drag like the rest. Still annoying that Foster can't figure anything out until the very end. But good storyline overall.

Another Excellent story!

Robert Brynzda has made a memorable character with Erika Foster - along the lines of Kay Scarpetta. The stories get better each time, and the end is always on the edge.

Quickly becoming my favorite series

Would you listen to Dark Water again? Why?

Yes, I would. I love the mystery and suspense that seems to follow Erica wherever she goes.

What other book might you compare Dark Water to and why?

The other two books in this series, of course. Same author and narrator and as I said above, Erica is like a murder magnet. Serial killers seem to flock to whatever department she's working in, invisibly begging her to try and catch them.

What does Jan Cramer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She truly brings the characters to life. I love the gritty no-nonsense way Foster and the other key characters are both written, and vocalized.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

There's an extra body at my crime scene... must be Thursday!

Any additional comments?

I am really enjoying each new installment of this series, and sincerely hope the author continues to cause trouble for DCI Foster for years to come. Bryndza has a knack for weaving together intricate plot and story lines and keeping the reader on their toes from the first page to the last. If you enjoy murder mysteries, serious suspense and strong female leads, then you'll love this series.

Couldn't stop listening!

Would you consider the audio edition of Dark Water to be better than the print version?

Probably because you have the benefit of hearing all the different accents.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I love Peterson. He's so well rounded, dreamy and kind

What does Jan Cramer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

All of the accents. She's good at most except the American one. She definitely needs to work on that. Cramer also has a way of sounding super creepy when she reads the killer's lines.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

No clue, but it would be a show that I'd be happy to watch!

Any additional comments?

I loved Erika's character development in this book. It was great to see her with family. I started off not liking her much in book one but she's evolved so much over the three books that I love her character now.
