Book Review – Fatal Witness

(See all my Book Reviews and Author Interviews) – Robert Bryndza is the author of more than 15 novels. Fatal Witness was published in 2022. This is the seventh novel in Bryndza’s Detective Erika Foster series, and it is the 71st book I completed in 2022.

I received an ARC of this book through with the expectation of delivering a fair and honest review. Opinions expressed here are unbiased and entirely my own! Due to scenes of violence, I categorize this novel as R.

One evening while on a walk in the neighborhood near her home, Detective Chief Inspector Erika Foster stumbles upon the murder of Vicky Clarke. Clarke is a podcaster with a true crime series. When the woman’s notes and recording are discovered to be stolen, Foster believes Clarke was on the trail of a killer.

The investigation is complicated when the body of another young woman is found in the same building. It is one of the two Ivanova sisters who lived across the hall from Clarke. She had been brutalized and stabbed. Another young woman is missing. Will Foster and her team be able to find the killer before there are more deaths?

I enjoyed the 8.5 hours I spent reading this 372-page mystery. This is the second novel by Bryndza that I have read. The first was The Girl in the Ice. They have both been excellent modern British mysteries. I like the chosen cover art. I give this novel a rating of 5 out of 5.
