First Chapter/First Paragraph ~ Teaser Tuesday – Dark Water by Robert Bryndza

Happy Tuesday!

Welcome to my first link up with Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea who hosts a post every Tuesday to share the First Chapter/First Paragraph of the book you are currently reading.


I’m also once again joining The Purple Booker with Teaser Tuesday. It’s easy to join – just grab your current read, open it to a random page, and share two teaser sentences being careful not to include any spoilers.


First Chapter/First Paragraph


It was a cold night in late autumn when they dumped the body in the disused quarry. They knew it was an isolated spot, and the water was very deep. What they didn’t know was that they were being watched.

Teaser Tuesday

“He, or she, is out there and thinks, after all these years, they’ve got away with it. But I’m going to get them.” – Erika Foster

Dark Water by Robert Bryndza (Detective Erika Foster, #3)

Goodreads Synopsis

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 seven-year-old Jessica Collins. The missing girl who made headline news twenty-six years ago.

As Erika tries to piece together new evidence with the old, she must dig deeper and find out more about the fractured Collins family and the original detective, Amanda Baker. A woman plagued by her failure to find Jessica. Erika soon realizes this is going to be one of the most complex and demanding cases she has ever taken on.

  1. This sounds like an excellent mystery, which I love. Do I need to read the first two books in the series first? Thanks for bringing this to my attention and welcome to First Paragraph.
