Arlidge's harrowing sixth Helen Grace thriller (after 2016's Little Boy Blue) finds the former detective inspector languishing in London's Holloway Prison awaiting trial for three murders. Already convicted of the crimes by the media and her fellow inmates some of whom Grace put in Holloway herself Grace must fight daily for her life and her sanity. On the outside, only one of her former officers, Charlie Brooks, believes in Grace's innocence. Both Grace and Brooks know that Grace's nephew Robert Stonehill painstakingly and brilliantly framed Grace, but locating him and proving his guilt is difficult, especially since Brooks is under pressure from above to let the case go. Meanwhile, a serial killer is gruesomely killing inmates in their locked cells in Holloway, and Grace is compelled to investigate these murders or risk becoming one of the victims. Parallel cat-and-mouse manhunts create relentless tension in this dark and twisted nail-biter filled with strong, well-defined characters hero and villain alike.
This book was awesome, one of my favourite I've ever read, keeps you guessing the whole way thru, you feel like you dislike or like the people you're reading about where you can get that lost in it.
Only bad thing about it was that I lost sleep every night because I just wanted to keep reading it, couldn't wait for the next chapter.

Just when you think that this book couldn't get any better than previous ones, it does!!! M J Arlidge has produced yet another cracker. I couldn't put this one down. It was so gripping and intense. I couldn't wait to get to the end but at the same time wanted it to carry on. Brilliant!!!! Thoroughly enjoyed it. More please I can't wait for the next one
