Detective Erika Foster is with one of her former colleagues when they receive a call to a murder scene with a body being found in a dumpster. Wanting nothing more than to go back to solving murders Erika invites herself along to the crime scene and begins investigating even though she is currently supposed to be in a desk job pushing papers.
Fighting to secure a position back on the investigating team Erika quickly ties the current murder to an unsolved murder of a woman four months earlier. Dumped in a similar location and with similar wounds
Erika is sure that the two murders are connected and that she needs to be the one to solve the crimes.
Last Breath is the fourth book in the Detective Erika Foster series by Robert Bryndza. I have followed this series from the very beginning and as usual enjoyed diving into the investigation with Erika and her colleagues as they chased down a serial killer in this installment.
While I feel that you could pick up the story if not having read the other books I would warn that there is going to be background character building that will be missing if reading these out of order. However with that being said I can’t recommend the series enough for the fans of a great police procedural series.
I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.
