Her eyes are wide open. Her lips parted as if to speak. Her dead body frozen in the ice…She is not the only one.

When a young boy discovers the body of a woman beneath a thick sheet of ice in a South London park, Detective Erika Foster is called in to lead the murder investigation.

The victim, a beautiful young socialite, appeared to have the perfect life. Yet when Erika begins to dig deeper, she starts to connect the dots between the murder and the killings of three prostitutes, all found strangled, hands bound and dumped in water around London.

What dark secrets is the girl in the ice hiding?

As Erika inches closer to uncovering the truth, the killer is closing in on Erika.

The last investigation Erika led went badly wrong… resulting in the death of her husband. With her career hanging by a thread, Erika must now battle her own personal demons as well as a killer more deadly than any she’s faced before. But will she get to him before he strikes again?

First book in the series set in London about Detective Erika Foster. A girl’s body is found in a museum lake, at first it seems an isolated case, but then Erika finds other homicides with the same modus operandi of the killer.

At the beginning Erika is called upon the scene because she is good at solving high profile cases, then she is suspended, but she continues with the help of her squad that doesn’t like the man appointed in her place.

In this category I will publish about new books, according to Meaning that I will choose a book each Monday, from the “New Releases” page @ GoodReads. I will choose random covers that speak to me, that are nice or cute, without looking at the author, genre or synopsis.

Kingdom of Exiles

Fantastic Beasts meets Assassin’s Creed in this epic, gripping fantasy romance from debut author Maxym M. Martineau.

Exiled beast charmer Leena Edenfrell is in deep trouble. Empty pockets forced her to sell her beloved magical beasts on the black market—an offense punishable by death—and now there’s a price on her head. With the realm’s most talented murderer-for-hire nipping at her heels, Leena makes him an offer he can’t refuse: powerful mythical creatures in exchange for her life.

If only it were that simple. Unbeknownst to Leena, the undying ones are bound by magic to complete their contracts, and Noc cannot risk his brotherhood of assassins…not even to save the woman he can no longer live without.

Double Question Week:

1. Which is your favourite library (or which would you most like to visit)? (submitted by Nicki @ Nicki J. Markus/Asta Idonea)

2. How often do you visit the library? (submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver’s Reviews)

My answer:

1. I don’t visit the library. The last time I put foot in a public library I was in high school which means 20 plus years ago. I don’t know which library I would like to visit, maybe one with ancient architecture.

2. As said in #1 I don’t visit ever.

Coming to terms over her breakup with criminal profiler Dr. Tony Hill, Chief Inspector Carol Jordan plunges into a risky undercover sting: track down a European drug trafficker and gain his confidence. But she's being tracked as well-by a serial killer whose psychosexual madness is born out of the darkest corners of history. In quiet isolation, Tony Hill is laying to rest the scars of his past-until he's recruited back into business on a case he can't ignore. An evil is striking uncomfortably close to home, and casting a killer shadow over the life of his long-time colleague and sometimes lover. As the danger closes in, and as Tony and Carol cross paths to navigate the terrain of a shattered human mind, they have no one left to trust but themselves-and fear that there's no place left to run as a killer promises to fulfill his most twisted dreams.

About the book

Third book in the Tony Hill & Carol Jordan series, in which Carol and Tony have not worked together for several months. After Vance’s arrest in the previous book, Tony retires to Scotland, leaving the police profiling, to devote himself to teaching. Here he also met a woman who seems to have solved his problems. Carol, on the other hand, is about to pursue a career in the Europol but before accepting it, she must go undercover to arrest a drug and human trafficker who manages to be invisible. Will she succeed? And how can Tony help her?

Meanwhile, a ruthless serial killer wanders around Europe, targeting some university professors who only share the fact that they teach psychology.
