Description

Beneath the water the body sank rapidly.  She would lie still and undisturbed for many years but above her on dry land, the nightmare was just beginning.

When Detective Erika Foster receives a tip off that key evidence for a major narcotics case was stashed in a disused quarry on the outskirts of London, she orders for it to be searched. From the thick sludge the drugs are recovered, but so is the skeleton of a young child.

The remains are quickly identified as eleven-year-old Jessica Collins.  The missing girl who made headline news when she vanished twenty-six years ago.

As Erika tries to piece together new evidence with the old, she discovers a family harbouring secrets, a detective plagued by her failure to find Jessica, and the mysterious death of a man living by the quarry. 

Is the suspect someone close to home? Someone doesn’t want this case solved. And they’ll do anything to stop Erika from finding the truth.

OH MY GOD! Just let me a take a moment while I catch my breath! I LOVED IT! WHAT A BOOK! WHAT AN AUTHOR! WHAT A READ! It is all consuming, there is no let up… every twist and turn is designed to make you gasp, to make your head spin and your heart beat out of your chest.’ Emma the Little Bookworm

HOLY MOLY Robert Bryndza has only gone and done it again… it's one of those books you can't bear to put down, as each chapter ends you just "have to read one more" and before you know it it's the middle of the night!... I can and will wholeheartedly recommend Dark Waters for anyone looking for an original crime story but with all the hallmarks of a truly thrilling tale.Book Review Café

‘Brilliantly plotted, incredibly captivating, and definitely a must-read!... Robert Bryndza is like a breath of fresh air. He creates characters we can't get enough of and juicy, complex stories that suck you in… He truly writes with great depth and heart, and leaves you, as a reader, surprised, highly entertained, and extremely satisfied.’ What’s Better Than Books

‘A gripping and an edge of your seat read. It made my heart and pulse race with every page I turned. It is one of those books that when you finish, you sit back and just think, wow! There is just so much more I want to say but I think I will just end up gushing and not do this fantastic book the justice it deserves. An outstanding read by an author who is one of my firm favourites.’ By The Letter Book Reviews

    Fantastic read, couldn't put it down. Kept on wanting to read more. Love the characters. This is the third book I've read, the first being the girl in the ice then night stalker. All three books are thrilling and page turners. Can't wait to read the next book! C jones
