Rated 5 out of 5 by from Astute, perilous, and chilling! Deadly Secrets is an engrossing, edgy thriller that takes you on a hunt for a dangerous, sadistic, serial killer with a penchant for gas masks, sharp knives, dark corners, and no discernible victim type. The writing is spine-tingling, vivid, and skillfully crafted. The characters are committed, persistent, and vulnerable. And the plot starts off with a bang and then quickly unravels into an ominous tale full of twists, turns, red herrings, secrets, lies, obsession, violence, murder, and mayhem. Deadly Secrets is the sixth book in the Detective Erika Foster series, and once again Bryndza has written a highly suspenseful, intricately woven mystery with superb character development that gives the story a touch of human frailty and authenticity that takes it from just being a great novel to being absolute perfection!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfectly Done Gritty Police Procedural Deadly Secrets is another superb installation in the Erika Foster series. Quick paced, twisting, and awash with Robert Bryndza's signature darkness, I had a hard time ever setting this down. On Christmas morning, a beautiful young woman is found brutally murdered in her own front yard. Fresh off her last horrific case, Detective Erika Foster is determined to take on the murder and find the person responsible for such a violent crime. It isn't long before Erika realizes this case is more than she could have ever realized, and becoming more tangled and convoluted by the minute. Who was this victim that seems loathed by everyone who knew her, and how does this murder connect to a string of recent assaults by a mysterious man wearing a gas mask that have been occurring all over town? Robert's talent for writing dark, gritty and brutally atmospheric books seems endless. I loved the constantly evolving twists the team are faced with in working to solve a murder with very little evidence, and even fewer leads. I find it so enjoyable to read a crime procedural that isn't perfectly cut and dry, with all the evidence falling into the detectives laps. And as always, I continue to love the complex and flawed characters in this series - it becomes refreshing to read characters who are driven by their own human needs and limitations, rather than always reading characters who seem superhuman in their pursuit of a criminal. I am a huge fan of Robert's work, and I enjoyed this book as much as the previous 5 in the series. I also appreciate that bookworms who aren't familiar with the Erika Foster series can easily pick up any of the books and read them independently without being lost on the backstory. Book 6 is an absolute recommendation for anyone who loves a gritty police procedural, and if this is a reader's first foray into the world of Erika Foster, it will be the perfect jumping in point to get them hooked to wanting to read more.
