  2. I feel like I have started so many series as of late … I feel like I have started so many series as of late that they are all starting to run together in my head a bit. I am pleased to say that The Girl in the Ice had enough redeeming qualities that it stood apart from some of the others. Overall, I would give this novel a strong 3.5 star rating. 

  3. Excellent Serial Killer Thriller…….. Author, Robert Bryndza’s debut novel was a gripping crime/mystery thriller……Once I started I couldn’t stop turning the pages……The plot is elaborate, suspenseful with plenty of unsuspected twists and turns……..I never was able to guess who the serial killer was…..That to me is good writing……Great in-depth characterization of all the players….Especially, DCI Erika Foster a woman who is struggling with past mistakes and grieving the loss of her husband……At the same time…
