Dark Water – Robert Bryndza

Link to book – Dark Water by Robert Bryndza

Rating – 4 out of 5 stars

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, I actually was unable to put it down and read it in a matter of just a few hours, it was addictive…

I’m not sure if entertaining is the right way to describe this book, but I certainly thought it was a bloody good read and once that I was looking for. I’ve been reading a lot of crime thrillers lately and none of them hit the mark quite like Dark Water did.

I have previously read one of Bryndza’s books and as before, I absolutely loved Erika, I find her quite refreshing and different to the usual characters we get in these books, she brings a breath of fresh air. The other character I did enjoy reading about, but due to the nature of their involvement in the story, it was hard to form opinions on them other than what the author wanted us to think.

And, as always the writing was impeccable, it was addictive whilst also managing to be eerie and keep up an incredible atmosphere and feeling of fear.

I also don’t want to give too much away, but the plot was not what I was expecting at all, at every point there was a new twist that I had no idea was coming! Plus, every little storyline worked perfectly together to tie the story in and move it along.

I was SHOCKED by the ending, or as the kids say these days “shook”.

The whole book was just so good, I enjoyed it immensely and definitely would recommend it to anyone who was looking for a crime thriller to enjoy.

Until next time, Em xxx

The Night Stalker, Robert Bryndza – A Review. [SPOILERS].

What Em's Reading (4)

Hey everyone, how is it going?! I’m back again with a review of The Night Stalker by Robert Bryndza. 

I have to say I had high hopes for this book and I was not disappointed! I thought The Night Stalker was brilliantly written and a real thriller, it kept me on the edge of my seat. 

We hit the ground running with this book, which I really enjoyed and that quick pace kept up throughout the entire book, something I felt made it feel realistic to the topic at hand. I loved how every page and chapter brought something new to the story, it kept it’s momentum.

 The Night Stalker made me question everything that was written, look at every character we were introduced to with a bit of suspicion and I didn’t trust anyone, Bryndza did an excellent job of building that suspicion, fear and tension. At points I was even questioning our lead detective, I had no idea who it ended up being right up to the last second.

I didn’t warm to the main character, Erika, I thought she was behaving a little bit entitled at points but I feel that only added a bit of reality and grit to the story.

When the killer was revealed halfway through the book I was confused as to why Bryndza did that, but as I continued to read and the story progressed it made sense and it made the book, for me, stand out amongst a sea of others of this genre. 

On the whole, I enjoyed The Night Stalker so much! And I will definitely recommend it to anyone and everyone.
