Dark Water by Robert Bryndza
Dark Water is the 3rd in the Erika Foster crime series by Robert Bryndza.
First, I’d like to thank NetGalley, Bookouture, and of course Robert Bryndza for providing me with a copy of the book and giving me the opportunity to review it honestly.
I love this series.
DCI Erika Foster is now working on an anti-drug team. When she and her team have the divers search for a stash of drugs in Hayes Quarry, she finds more than she bargained for. The body of 7-year old Jessica Collins is recovered, after 26 years. Erika fights her way onto the investigation, and fights to get her old team of Moss and Peterson back too. Amanda Baker was the last detective who worked, and was thrown off, this case. She had a suspect, but couldn’t prove he did it, so she took matters a little further than the law allowed. Amanda has suffered ever since, drowning herself in alcohol, but maybe she knows something that can help Erika. The family seems to be hiding something. But there are a lot of things that never came to light in that first investigation, and someone is determined that everything stays buried this time around too. More lives will be taken before answers can be found. Meanwhile, Erika is also dealing with a visit from her sister and her two children. And then there is Peterson. Chaos abounds.
Great book. I love how the characters continue to grow. Erika is wonderful. I must say, the ending took me by surprise. Loved it!
Favorite Quote from Dark Water:
If I should go tomorrow
It would never be goodbye,
For I have left my heart with you,
So don’t you ever cry.
The love that’s deep within me,
Shall reach you from the stars,
You’ll feel it from the heavens,
And it will heal the scars.
