Publisher's Summary

Helen's most personal case yet as she investigates the shocking and unexpected murder of a close friend found cocooned in plastic. It looks like it was a tragic accident - a sex game gone wrong.

The investigation soon threatens to expose Helen's private life, and she has to make some tough personal choices along the way as she hunts a twisted and elusive killer who is swiftly racking up more murders. As Helen closes in on her prey, a shocking truth is revealed - these murders are part of a calculated attempt to bring Helen down....

    "Cliffhanger"

    Enjoyed this latest in the series but disappointed that it's a cliffhanger with no sense of whether the story continues in s new book.

    "Warning! It's a cliffhanger!"

    I enjoyed the book, but was so disappointed in the ending. I'm not a fan of cliffhangers, I did a little digging and "Hide & Seek" will be released September 8, 2016 in the UK, so hopefully it'll be available in the US shortly afterwards. You may want to wait till then and read them in quick succession.
    Onto the book, I continue to enjoy Helen Grace, but am tiring of Anita G. She's become predictable and uninteresting.
    I don't want to spoil the story, but found the villain to be both predictable and not believable. With that being said, I will purchase the next one.

    "Wow...what a wonderful first audio book!"

    Great book! Wonderful reading. Killer ending! Another great book. This one takes Aldridge onto another playing field. I didn't see any of this coming. Seriously fantastic book!

    Story
    "A totally implausible storyline."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I am amazed that anyone thought this was good. The story line is totally implausible and fatuous. It was more like a grizzly fairy tale than anything that would happen in real life. It is quite literally a 'story' and not a very good one at that. I was so pleased when it came to an end.


    Would you ever listen to anything by M. J. Arlidge again?

    No


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    "Rubbish"

    It's time that Aldlidge changed the storyline. The first three books were great but now it's complete repetition. Can there not be a crime that Helen Grace investigates that isn't about her . This is the last Helen Grace book I will read .

    "Disappointing!!!"

    I was looking forward to this next Helen Grace book, but I feel let down in some way. The story was weak it just got going at the end!! I'm assuming there is another book to Finnish this story,

    "Unbelievably Good"

    Another excellent Helen Grace book!! How does MJ Arlidge do it?!
    Although from the synopsis indicates that the killer is out to get Helen Grace you are drawn in from the get go and feel sure you know who it is only to find it is someone else!
    What will happen to Helen now? How will she turn this around!
    Brilliant! Just brilliant!

    "ridiculous storyline and characters"

    initially the book seems to start off well, then the longer I listened the more annoyed I got with the plot, the characters, and the writing. I will not listen to this author again

    "Excellent narrator, stupid story"

    The storyline is utter nonsense but the book entertaining because the narrator is excellent. The ending is incomplete, clearly designed to leave you gagging for more. I don't want any more.
