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!

    "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,

    "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?

    None


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Still trying to think of something...

    "Surprising!!"

    I've read all the Helen Grace books now and was just thinking that this would probably be my last - the stories are all good, but I was able to predict the endings.

    However, there is a great twist to this tale, so I'll be looking out for the next episode. (No spoilers!)

    "Best of the bunch !"

    Listened to all the Helen Grace audiobooks and overall they've been 3.5-4.0 out of 5. Given this a 5 as this is the best one yet.
    Kept me guessing, fast paced and a different ending...can't wait until the next one.

    Love Love this series!

    I can't recommend them enough, the stories are well thought out, there suspense, joy, shock, panic brilliant!
    You really get into the story, you empathise with all the characters and just when you think 'nah don't like him or her' Arlidge changes or makes you question your first option, even the criminals!
    Needless to say I will stay glued to this series of D.I Grace, next one please!!!!!
