        I downloaded your book Miss Wrong and Mr Right, not realizing the effect you would have on me. Thank you for making me laugh and taking me to a special place. I was unable to put the Kindle down until I finished, neglecting the housework. But my dogs loved me sitting there long enough to stretch out and relax. I have downloaded three of your other books in an attempt to read them on holiday In two weeks. I am a little scared I won’t be Able to wait that long.
        I am honoured to pass this read on as its been a while since I felt that gripping feeling.
        Looking forward to meeting Coco for two weeks in Marbella.

        Hi, Rob ‘- my name is also Jo, and I’m doing this in this way because I don’t like using the social media options, could not find an actual email address for you, and apparently can’t register without giving them my own (nonexistent) web site. I was very frustrated because I couldn’t wait to tell you I just finished The Girl in the Ice, my first of your books. I read a LOT of detective novels, mysteries, and thri!lers, and this was one of the best ever! I loved the characters, the plot, the many surprises and the tension building to the incredible scene at the end of the case! I also loved the epilogue: nice way to wind things up at the end. I’ve gotten very little sleep the last 2 days because I simply could not stop! I’ll be downloading the next one ASAP, and will check out the Coco series as well, after seeing the reviews here! Thank you for your spellbinding writing!

      Thank you very much for The Girl in the Ice: it’s a great page-turner; indeed I can’t remember such a gripping plot from anyone else in a long time. I particularly enjoyed DCI Erika and her colleagues (Kate) Moss and Peter Son (you’ll understand about this once you,too have read the book!); I am confident that in these characters you have excellent opportunities to develop them into major names in your genre. Buy it and enjoy it as much as I did

      Dear Rob, I just recently plowed through The Girl in the Ice and The Night Stalker and I LOVED them both! I think out of the two books, TNS was my favorite but that’s not an easy choice to make because they are both so fantastic. I thought TNS was very original and unique. I read A LOT of mystery/detective novels and it was so refreshing to read something different. Where did you get the idea of using suicide bags?? I also love the developing relationship between Erika and Isaac. Most of the leading men in my life are gay so I feel like I can really relate to Erika in this way! They make a really great duo! I’m very curious to see if Erika will ever pursue anything romantic with anyone in the future books. When is the next Erika Foster book coming out? Thank you for the awesome entertainment! xo Heather

Before starting each new book, its been a tradition to go back to Marylebone and have a wander, but bizarrely, I’ve never been able to find the house again! Rob Bryndza x

My husband and I have visited relatives there twice, the latest in 2011 and agree with you that it is a totally lovely country…and we loved the wonderful Brindza cheese dishes so I just couldn’t resist getting one of your books especially when I found out that you actually know what bryndza is and that you and your husband are living in Slovakia! Well I need to read your book now and from the reviews it should be an enjoyable read!

    Okay I have never done this before but I love your Coco Pinchard series so much I had to write to tell you and hoping there will be more soon. I actually read all four books in less than a week. Needless to say I have a little time on my hands but I truly could not stop. I finished one and had to purchase the next and I just wish they went on forever but then I would be broke because I just can’t stop buying so I guess careful what I wish for. I love a mixture of comedy and romance and absolutely love how you wrote them as diary email entries. I wish I had half the talent and creativity you do. Keep writing I really can’t wait to read more and thank you so much fort the hours of entertainment.

    Just finished consequences of sex and love. I have read all of Coco’s books and this latest read did not disappoint. It was great to catch up with all the familiar characters. Laughing out loud constantly, did attract several ‘looks’ from my fellow sunbathers around the pool. I have given them the titles, so more ardent fans enlisted. Beautifully and cleverly written, this, like its predecessors, captures you from the opening page and doesn’t let go until the end. Incredible insight into the ups and downs of life and the issues we stress about on a regular basis. All I can add is please hurry to get a few more written and published. Holidays are not the same without Coco Pinchard.

    27/2/16 just finished girl in the ice and as a retired police sergeant found the plot and subplots, in house rivalries very believable great edge of the seat thriller. Can’t wait for the next one. As police dog handler of many years experience I am always disappointed that not many police books include the contributions we make to investigations in searching for suspects and evidence.

    Hi Rob

    I have just finished The Girl In The Ice and loved it! It’s the first book I have read by you and look forward to more. I really thought the unsub was going to be Linda! Well written with plenty of twists and turns! I would like Erika to find love again, somewhere unexpected and maybe a bit suspect at first so you feel worried for her. I liked her back story (even though it was so tragic). I liked Moss and Peterson as well. Please tell me Sparks gets his comeuppance soon!!

    The only small thing that dos rattle my cage a little (I am an English major) is the Mis use of “passed” and “past”. I gave up counting how many times the wrong one was used. But I will say it was consistently incorrect!!

    Over all I really enjoyed the book and could t wait to carve out time to get back to Ericas world. I will look out for more. Thank you for sharing your gift.

    Hi Mr. Bryndza

    Just wanted you to know how much I enjoyed The Girl in the Ice. It’s one of the best murder/mysteries I’ve read in a while. I’m not into romance novels so I’m glad that she didn’t have a boyfriend. I realize she just lost her husband but I’d rather see her with a few good female friends than get involved with a man again. (Maybe she could slowly start to realize that she’s a Lesbian?) My wife and I have been married for 13 years here in Canada and I was thrilled to realize that you too were gay. I wish there were more books about good Lesbian Cops that don’t get into too much romance or sex stuff but have relationships that are very happy and long-lasting and of course always catch the bad guys. Hopefully she also will continue to improve her self-defense methods She’s a real kick-ass female leading character and I can hardly wait until your next book comes out (The Night Stalker).

    I finished reading The Girl in the Ice yesterday, it took me three days! A brilliant start to what I hope will be an ongoing series starring Erika.
    Of all the books I have read since I retired 5 years ago (see my Goodreads page – about 180 in total). Peter Robinson, James Oswald, Elly Griffiths, Aline Templeton, Anne Cleeves, Alex Gray, M.J. Arlidge, Denise Mina, Lin Anderson, Craig Russell and more.
    My favourite books up till now were the Lewis Trilogy from Peter May, my favourite character is Fiona Griffiths from the series by Harry Bingham.
    Erika Foster has now joined this elite list. I really enjoyed the book and have rated it 5 star on Goodreads.
    I look forward to many more in the future.

    Good story, well thought out and you avoided the clichés when saving Erica from the car in the quarry (other authors don’t take so much care as you) Example: Often authors would have described Peterson’s heroic efforts to release Erica, well I for one liked that you didn’t waste time and got the story moving at a good pace.That was my opinion but what do I know LOL…

    Hello,

    I have just read The Girl In The Ice and I’m looking forward to the next book in the series, The Night Stalker. As the series develops, I’d like to see DCI Foster gradually develop a social life and a circle of friends outside of her police work. I’ve read a number of crime novels where the woman detective, like Vera, as played by Brenda Blethyn on ITV, lives and breathes her work and has little life outside of the career. I’ve read a few where the man detective is a great cop but a hopeless family man, who has tto be brought down a peg by his wife, or is a serious disappointment to her, and in the end, they divorce and it’s his fault for putting his career first. I’d love this series to break the mould.

    Has anyone ever written a crime novel where disablism, homophobia or transphobia is the driving motive? I wonder how DCI Foster would go about cracking one of those. Finally a question: If DCI Foster were to move to radio or TV drama, who would you imagine playing the lead roles?

    Best regards,

    I just this minute finished your book, “The Girl in the Ice,” and it was remarkably well written. It was so good in fact, that after the last page, I wanted more and continued on to the about the author section. It mentioned continuing on with Ericka foster as a series.
    I love the talent and promise you show in your debut crime thriller and would hate to see you turn in to the next James Patterson or Harlan Coben. This is only my personal opinion, but they re-tell the same story for twenty novels in a row and don’t even take the time to switch the names around. “The Girl in the Ice,” was so good; please don’t rob your next novel of that originality. Don’t try to throw a new twist into the same story with the same characters. I could argue my case further, but in the end you’ll need to hash it out for yourself.
    Ultimately, I would like to congratulate you on the best book I’ve read in a long while. To borrow the closing from the previous poster, “I am not a reader of romantic comedies, but your writing is so compelling I might have to check out one of yours.”

I already bought Night Stalker. :)

    This is an AWESOME! I am a crime fan and this fits the bill. It grabs your attention from page 1 and keeps you interested to the last page. I had a little trouble with some of the British words like “jumper” (I looked it up). however, that did not diminish my interest, not one bit, DCI Foster is a compelling, complex character and a strong woman. I am her fan and have preordered her next adventure in police work, And oh yes, I like Moss and Peterson, too. After all the “Boss” needs loyal sidekicks!

    I just finished The Girl In The Ice and really liked it. I got a little put out with Erika for waiting so long before getting checked for HIV, thinking it was too irresponsible for a person with her training but forgave her after while due to what she had been through and her lack of interest in her own life.
    I’d love to see you get a movie deal; if you did and if there was enough budget, I’d like Charlize Theron or Angelina Jolie as Erika Foster and MAYBE, Sharon Stone, if she could manage a good English accent…a Manchester accent? What do you think?

    Robert, I found your site because I’ve been searching for years for individuals with the last name of Bryndza or something similar. I’m trying to piece together a pre Bolshevik Revolution family story from Russia. Not many people have your last name and so I’m curious about its origins. My family is of Cossack origins and has said the family name in Russia was Brendja. This could easily be the same as your last name given the alphabet change. Anyway, just curious to see if you know anything…

    Just left a 5 star review on Amazon- loved the book, kept me up until 2am finishing it. Can’t wait to see where you take Erika, and hope to see more of her back story before Mark. One picky thing I noted on Amazon, and I’ll quote myself: when a character who depends on a mobile phone has it run out of power once it’s a great plot device- but having the power repeatedly run out at critical moments strains credulity, just makes Erika, who is supposed to be brilliant, just seem lax and almost stupid. Honey, get an extra battery or a charging case!

I love them anyway, but even more when I’m wrong about the culprit(s)! And with that, you now have a new fan in Canada.

    Hi Rob! I just finished Girl in the Ice…..spent the last two whole days indoors, totally engrossed. Good ending. I wrote a response on Amazon to someone who had received the book free in exchange for a review. The review was not great: the reviewer didn’t like the characters and felt they didn’t ring true, especially the lead character. I replied, including the following thoughts: Erika Foster obviously has PTSD (has all the symptoms) and people who are suffering with PTSD exhibit extreme behavior, suffer greatly (night sweats, flashbacks), and are very hard to take. They often alienate friends and family. Her horrifying incident involving her husband would have set this off. I’m a longtime ER/trauma nurse and sometime PTSD sufferer, and I was not popular with ANYONE during extreme bouts when some life experience triggered a flashback. You are right on with your description of her. I finished the book……and immediately pre-ordered the Night Stalker. I don’t know if you are aware of the Night Stalker case that haunted Los Angeles during a summer in the 80s. Police were telling the public to keep doors and windows locked at night and keep the phone nearby. Many people slept with guns under their pillows. Richard Ramirez was the Night Stalker. Good case. I can’t wait to read the Coco Pinchard books.
    You have a great gift to be able to keep readers on the edge of their seats until the last page. Not many authors share that ability. Good decision to enter the “criminal realm” in your writings. There is nothing like a good British Police Procedural book. Being able to make readers laugh out loud – then turn around and keep them in profound suspense is Talent. Keep up the great work!

      I just finished reading The Night Stalker and found it every bit as good as The Girl In The Ice. Although a bit exaggerated in the novels, it is often true in modern organizations that the non-political highly skilled doer is frequently overlooked at promotion time in favor of the go along unimaginative plodder who does only as they are told. In these types of stories one often wonders why the character continues to endure and it was good in this case the Erika immediately for all intents and purposes told her boss where to stick the job. There are a number of English police procedural series I like and in the most recent book in one of the other series the main character turns in his warrant card at the end of the novel (of course we know in the next novel there will be some pretext that brings hime back). It will be interesting to see where Erika winds in the next novel (when will that be out?). I suspect that some time in the future she will get on the trail of the drug kingpin responsible for the ambush of her team and she’ll find that drug lords mole in the police will probably be Marsh (he keeps saying he’s her friend and on her side but it seems a case of the character doth protest too much). So far a great series. The characters hit the ground running in The Girl In The Ice and the same gritty energy has been carried unabated in The Night Stalker. Keep up the good work.

    Robert: I just finished reading “The Girl In the Ice” and I couldn’t put it down. It was a most thrilling story and a nail biter. I like your style of writing. I especially liked that you didn’t jump around from one scene to another. You lead into each scene. I am anxiously waiting for the “Night Stalker”. Thanks for such great reading!! Judy

    I’ve had such a bad run of books lately. I purchased “The Night Stalker” as I had enjoyed “The Girl In The Ice” so much previously. Immediately I knew I had a cracking book! I’m only half through and came online to find your other books! I just wanted to show my appreciation. Your books are such a joy to read! Thank you! Gotta run now! Need to read more haha! =)

    I discovered the DCI Erika Foster series on Audible, and I loved both books! I am grateful for a smart, strong female lead character! Keep up the great work – I can’t wait to read more in the series!

    Hi Rob, my name is Samantha and I wanted to leave some feedback on your book, The Girl In The Ice. I stumbled upon your book in the top sellers on IBooks and I could not put it down! It was amazing. I love the main character Erika and it kept me guessing all the way through who the killer was. I don’t have much time for reading due to studying and working full time but I can’t wait to read more!

    I recently finished “The girl in the Ice” and just finished “The night stalker”, both just fabulous. There’s nothing better than a book you can’t put down. I love British murder mysteries such as Touching Evil, Prime Suspect, Inspector Lynley, and the list goes on. I could see both of these books played out on the screen. They are perfect for that scenario. I would like to see Erika get her act together in future books, the overly damaged detective starts to get a little frustrating over time. Her character is too bright to make some of the mistakes she makes. I am very much looking forward to more books in this series. Awesome!

    Hi, Rob
    I’ll confess that I bought The Girl in the Ice by mistake. I thought I was buying a Camilla Lackberg novel. Lucky mistake as I discovered a great new crime writer. Have just finished reading The Night Stalker and enjoyed it just as much. I turned my Kindle off reluctantly when life’s demands forced me to do so. I think Erika is great. Don’t change her at all. Love Moss, Peterson and Isaac too. Thanks for the great reads and look forward to more. Congratulations for your success and wish you much more. Will certainly recommend you to my friends.

  217. I have just finished The Girl in the Ice on my Kindle. What a great read, I could not put it down. Not really been into crime stories before but loved it. I kept trying to guess who the killer was but never thought of David.. Erica is a great character. I have now bought and downloaded the Night Stalker so hear goes… Will be in touch.. Pam

    I stumbled upon your book, “The Girl in the Ice” and was immediately hooked. I find you style of writing complex, compelling, and provided with just enough suspense to keep the reader intrigued. DCI Foster has just enough angst to keep the reader’s interest and not overwhelm the plot. I enjoy her intelligence and her edge. You write quite well and I look forward to Night Stalker and then switch to you more humorous books….nice balance.

    Well, I just read The Girl in the Ice and although I had high expectations of it, considering the reviews, I was a little let down. Here’s why.

    1. The dialogue between Erika and Marsh took an awkward turn toward the end. Marsh is still her boss, so for her to talk back to him the way she did, seemed far fetched. Now, this could just be my American point of view. In America, if a detective becomes insubordinate with her commanding officer, she’s suspended immediately. Perhaps in London, there’s some leeway.

    2. There were too many coincidences in the story and people seemed to scared of Igor for no explained reason. His case was redacted and Barbora was in wit sec, but we were never told why. If she was in wit sec, why? It seems because she was connected Igor, but we aren’t told what the connection was. It could have been a single paragraph before she killed herself. But that was all left untold.

    3. David the killer? That seemed odd. Why did David have such a bad attitude? It wasn’t that realistic that his sister would play dumb and accept the blame for him killing their sister. If she was that off her rocker, why was she allowed in public? In America, she would have been 51-50-ed and locked up in a nutty house.

    4. All the cat business was a bit of a stretch. I’ve seen people admit to murders based on some precarious questioning, but never because they were pressed on questioning about who killed their cat. In practice, the attorney/solicitor would have stopped the questioning once the cat questions came about. It was a silly line of questioning. It would have made more sense to have to play Linda against Igor and say that Igor had told the truth about the connection between Simon and Giles. Then that could have set her off and she could have admitted to all the facts. But the cat questioning wasn’t my fav.

    5. The way you describe London makes me want to visit! =) I’ve never been, but it seems like an awesome city!

    6. I think you have a really good story brewing with the bar that lists au pairs for hire. You can really do some character development there and take us across Eastern Europe to bust up the smuggling ring. We just broke one up in San Diego, California and those networks run deep!

    Overall, it was an entertaining read!

    Hi. I just read ‘The Girl In The Ice’, which I enjoyed very much. I love the Erika Foster character and I have a suggestion. I believe she comes across as to easy to hurt physically, as evidenced by what happened to her in the book I just read. I suggest, since she doesn’t carry a weapon, she needs to be extremely proficient in hand to hand combat. Hence, you might consider finding a way to have her acquire incredible had to hand combat skills upon which she could rely in future books in attacks. As it stands currently, she comes across as too vulnerable and to easy to hurt physically.
