PRAISE FOR M.J. ARLIDGE:
'Fast paced and nailbitingly tense . . . gripping' Sun
'DI Helen Grace is a genuinely fresh heroine . . . MJ Arlidge weaves together a tapestry that chills to the bone' Daily Mail
'Gruesomely realistic, intriguing and relentless' Sunday Sport
'Expertly pulled off. DI Helen Grace is fiendishly awesome. It's scary as all hell' Will Lavender
'A fast-paced, twisting police procedural and thriller' Huffington Post
Helen Grace's private and professional lives are threatened in British author Arlidge's exciting fifth outing for the highly unusual, highly competent Southampton detective inspector (after 2015's Liar Liar). Grace carefully keeps quiet her visits to dominators, whose punishments help relieve her tensions and guilt, but the sex-club torture murder of one of them, Jake Elder, shocks her. Grace reveals nothing of her connection to Jake as she organizes her team, including Det. Sgt. Charlie Brooks and Det. Sgt. Joanne Sanderson. A second, similar murder, also with a link to Grace, increases the stakes. A number of factors the snooping of reporter Emilia Garanita, the professional jealousy of Brooks and Sanderson, Grace's fear that her personal secrets may be revealed force her to make tough decisions. A third homicide puts Grace in the crosshairs of a killer bent on vengeance. Readers should be prepared for an ending that merely sets up the next installment, resolving nothing.
Brilliant mystery thriller crime book...
If it was possible to give more star ratings then I would have to give this
storyline a big fat 8 stars..
Talk about a thrilling mystery crime story...
Well this one was up their with the best...
M. J. Arlidge books are just getting better each time....
I love the characters they are so like the way humans behave...
Looking forward to reading the next book...
Really annoyed by the fact that the author didn't see fit to finish the ending of this novel. A manipulative piece of PR as far as I am concerned. Neither the main character nor the plot line were compelling enough to have me rushing to purchase the next book in the series to find out what happens. Rather relieved that I won't have to read for the 100th time how she marched into a room, marched away, marched towards her motor bike - uninspired.
