Deadly Secrets (Detective Erika Foster #6) by Robert Bryndza

Ripped through the last Detective Erika Foster in the series in a day and a half.

The story picks up ten days after our the ending of book 5. Some monster wearing a gasmask is stalking men and women with no sense of pattern. There is a horrific murder of a young, burlesque dancer to kick things off.

Plot and police investigation move along at a cracking pace with plenty of red herrings along the way. This time we see a deeper delving into the lives of those closest to Erika and loose ends tied up.

Thought the ending was weak, and I didn’t like the handover from our hero to another character. Nor the ‘going alone and not telling anyone signalling this will end in disaster‘ plot mechanic.
