I don't like to disagree with everyone else, but I was asked for an honest review in return for my Netgalley ARC and this is it.

The prologue, written from the victims point of view, seemed promising, full of intrigue and tension, and the anticipation of getting a good read hooked me. Sorry to say it, but for me it all went downhill from there on, my disillusionment began with Erika. Erika is the lead character and, like so many fictional female detectives, is emotionally damaged and socially inept. She resents authority and goes her own way against all orders and common sense. She is hell bent on her own theory and won't cooperate with anyone else. That her presence will engender resentment from her new colleagues pretty much goes without saying. I'm not even sure she should even have been placed in that particular setting. Would the Metropolitan Police Force, with all their resources really bring in an officer from another territory to investigate a murder? Would the officers really act in the manner portrayed? I don't think it likely, not these days but then, I'm sure the author would have used the services of a police media advisor.

There were far too many stereotypical characters for my liking, even the old prostitute is a dirty, foul mouthed, ill mannered, drug addicted woman with crooked brown teeth. The working classes and criminals are portrayed as arrogant and ill mannered because they are poor, and the are rich portrayed as arrogant and ill mannered because they are privileged.

I thought it was a real shame because the actual plot itself is quite good and that is what earns it the 3rd star. It failed for me though because the whole story ran along predictable lines, including the usual part where the protagonist finds herself facing almost certain death (and that's not a spoiler because we know it's a serial). Having said that, judging by the number of 5 stars and the gushing comments, this style of writing must be exactly what many people want to read, I'm just not one of them.

I'm not sure how this book got so many good reviews.

The prologue describing the abduction of the victim and how she was found was very good. Unfortunately the book fell apart in the first chapter and didn't improve thereafter.

It begins with the London police bringing in a detective from Manchester to investigate the murder which is unrealistic. The actions of the the police are one bad cliche after another. I'm friends with several police officers and none of them behave in the way these do whether on or off duty.

Can't recommend this to anyone. Check out other books rather than wasting your money on this dreck.

Contains a minor spoiler. This is just the kind of book I really enjoy, so I wanted to like it. And I did like it right up until Erika Foster showed up. Before her arrival the story was mostly internal narrative. Then, beginning with chapter 2, there is more dialogue, which is not done well; it comes off as flat and unnatural and brings down the quality of writing altogether.

And there were misused words and homophones (discrete instead of discreet, for example) and misused phrases (like ‘I’m still hitting the ground running” to mean “I’m still getting up to speed”) that I would expect to find in a self-published novel, but not one put out by professionals.

Besides the writing, there is the fact that it was never fully explained in a reasonable manner why she was on this case in the first place. Why bring a troubled detective from Manchester in to work on a London-area murder that had already been assigned to someone else? The excuse that she was a “bloody good copper” doesn’t ring true—they don’t have good detectives in London? Really? And she never once demonstrated that she was even a bloody adequate copper, much less good enough to justify transferring her from another jurisdiction to take over the case.

And the plot was so by the numbers. Erika states early on that the one thing she despises about the English is the class system. So every character is written to stereotype depending on their “class.” And it is so easy to see who the killer will be and the reason given for why they kill (spoiler: because they can).

Overall, it was a disappointment. I have no desire to read more about Erika. In my opinion this book isn’t as bad as the one-star reviews would have you believe, nor does it warrant the glowing five-star reviews it’s been given. It’s solidly in the middle.

5つ星のうち 4.0 I feel like I have started so many series as of late ... 2016/3/16

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.
The story starts out with a very well-written scene in which a woman's body is found frozen in ice. (I must admit I was a bit intrigued by the discoverer of her body, so I was a bit disappointed when he didn't really play any significant role in the story.) Since the young woman's family belonged to upper-class society, the case is handled with kid gloves so as to not upset the powerful family. Erika Foster, DCI, takes the lead on the case and quickly becomes frustrated by its' handling. She seems unwilling to leave any stone unturned and quickly gets in over her head in several ways.
Enough about the plot, here are my basic opinions about the story. I thought the characters in the story were well developed. It's quite interesting to learn about Erika's recent troubles and to witness the effects they have on her life. She teams with two other detectives, Moss and Peterson, and I liked them both as well. Bryndza does a good job giving the reader just enough backstory on both of them to make them relatable.
Concerning the plot, I thought it was solid. The story is filled with several potential suspects, as well as red herrings, and I was not completely sure who the murder was until well into the story.
My only negative thought about this novel concerned the relationship between Foster and Marsh (her boss). I can't really specify what the issue was for me. Perhaps, I felt as if she pushed the envelope so far with him that at times it almost didn't seem realistic. Regardless, it wasn't bothersome enough to change my overall review.
At the end of the book, I was glad to read that Bryndza is hard at work writing the follow up to this book. I definitely liked it enough that I will read the next installment.

5つ星のうち 2.0 Decent story but dull characters 2016/9/8

Mixed bag crime novel about a damaged female detective who is brought back on the force to investigate the murder of a prominent and rich politician's daughter after her body is found in ice in the boat pond off a public museum. The book never comes up with a credible explanation for why a disgraced and suspended police detective would be brought back to head up such a high profile case.

Robert Bryndza is much better at constructing an involving story than creating compelling characters or bristling dialogue. I really didn't like or care about his protagonist, Erika Foster. The rest of the characters fade into the background and the villain, while potentially interesting, is thoroughly undeveloped, at least partly because his identity is hidden until the book is nearly over, making it impossible to do much with the character psychologically without giving away who the killer actually is.

After a while I found myself racing through The Girl in the Ice because I didn't particularly like the characters or dialogue but was just involved enough with the story that I wanted to see how it was going to play out. A more skilled writer could have made The Girl in the Ice into a great thriller but, unfortunately, it's merely OK. Erika Foster never comes alive as a character and is pretty much impossible to root for. She's one of those all job no personal life coppers that are a dime a dozen on TV and in books but there isn't anything extra to make her human and real or stand out from the pack.

The Girl in the Ice doesn't make me want to read anything else in the Erika Foster series, but the story is skillfully constructed enough that many people will likely be sufficiently satisfied. To be fair there are successful writers (Harlan Coben and Michael Connelly immediately come to mind) who are, in my opinion at least, much better storytellers than they are at handling characters and dialogue. But I eventually stopped reading those authors because I didn't really enjoy the writing and found myself racing through their books so I could get to the story and be done with the books quickly. I prefer books that I read slowly and savor and which I don't want to end. The Girl in the Ice is, unfortunately, not even close to being that kind of book.
