The Night Stalker by Robert Bryndza

4.0 out of 5 stars -- This second in the DCI Erika Foster series is just as creepy and entertaining as the first installment.

The Night Stalker creeps in when darkness falls. Phone lines and power are cut. Victims are single men and they are found with suicide bags on their heads. What do they all have in common and why are they being targeted?

This police procedural thriller takes the reader through the investigation with tantalizing clues, red herrings and a solid plot that keeps you glued to the pages. Even though you know who is doing this -- and why -- fairly early on, the well-developed characters and the well-written narrative provide a very satisfying read as it all comes together for a fitting and believable conclusion.

I'm looking forward to the next book in this series. The only thing that I wish is that Erika not be turned into a stereotype of a renegade "never follow orders" cop who is always in trouble at headquarters even though she ends up being right. I also hope that she doesn't end up as just another "damaged" heroine. I do really like that she is not involved in any romance and that her co-workers are interesting.

Thank you to NetGalley and Bookouture for the e-book ARC to review.
