She’s fearless. Respected. Unstoppable. Detective Erika Foster will catch a killer, whatever it takes. @goodreads
First off, I think the cover of the book is amazing! It's what brought me to the book in the first place.
The girl in the ice was named Andrea Douglas-Brown. She was the daughter of a multi-millionaire, Lord Douglas-Brown. So that right there made this case very sensitive as we have to bow down to the rich. He also owned a business called SamTech that made GPS and software for the government so there you go. Andrea had a brother and sister, Linda and David as well as her mother.
Andrea was found in the ice by some dude that heard her cell phone going off over and over. He was the lucky one to sort of stumble onto the body.
DCI Erika Foster was called in on the case by Chief Superintendent Marsh. Foster had not been on active duty for a bit for certain reasons and was happy to come on down and be in charge of the case. Foster was a brilliant DCI and Marsh knew she could get the job done if she was up to it. But, it all gets a little tricky because Marsh wants Foster to play by certain rules and get everything wrapped up nice and neat since we are talking bigwigs.
Due to some unfortunate events, Foster was kicked off the case and the idiot DCI Sparks was put back in charge. This was a major cock up as he messed things up left and right. BUT, ya know, can't keep an awesome copper down so Foster was brought back on the case. I loved Foster's character because she just did whatever to get the job done. It turns out there was a whole s••• ton of bad things going on and Foster busts the case wide open. She does eventually get justice for Andrea and several other woman that were killed by this person.
But there are three things I think everyone, even the coppers, needs to be aware of:
1. Don't go anywhere alone!
2. DON'T go anywhere alone!
3. DON'T GO ANYWHERE ALONE!
I wanted to smack some people for this stupidity!
At any rate, I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I have the next one in the series on my Amazon wishlist waiting to buy as I want to continue with DCI Foster.
