Deadly Secrets is book 6 in the Detective Erika Foster series.
Quite honestly it was absolutely shocking! Holy moly this story was a rollercoaster of emotions culminating in absolute horror.
It was very fast paced all the way through, the punches kept coming and smacking me in the face, dazing me but leaving me wanting more. I love the Erika Foster series so I was champing at the bit to read this and boy was it good.
All I can say without giving the story away is bloody hell, that ending! Who would have thought!
I don’t even want to say anything about the book for fear of giving away spoilers, just know that it’s good, very very good indeed.
Ok, now I have calmed down a bit from this very exciting read I would say that this can definitely be read as a stand-alone novel, I think it holds up very well and it gives a little info on the characters so you know where you are but I would highly recommend that you read the series, a) because they are amazing and b) you will get a better understanding of Erika and her team and their relationships and history together.
Here is the publishers blurb from the book:
