Publisher's Summary

From the international best-selling author of Eeny Meeny comes the second thriller featuring Detective Helen Grace.

A man's body is found in an empty house.
A gruesome memento of his murder is sent to his wife and children.

He is the first victim, and Detective Helen Grace knows he will not be the last. But why would a happily married man be this far from home in the dead of night?

The media call it Jack the Ripper in reverse: a serial killer preying on family men who lead hidden double lives.

Helen can sense the fury behind the murders. But what she cannot possibly predict is how volatile this killer is - or what is waiting for her at the end of the chase....

Riveting story!

This is the entire package! Thrilling story and an excellent narrator! I could hardly take a break from listening. Definitely a page turner! Not for the squeamish .. violence is quite graphic.

Not my thing

What disappointed you about Pop Goes the Weasel?

I was looking forward to a mystery with strong female leads, and I don't mind stories about complicated, flawed people at all. I stopped listening [POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT] about the time that the main female lead goes to visit her male prostitute bondage expert for her weekly kinky slap-around. That's just not my thing and the story permanently lost me with it.

Would you be willing to try another one of Elizabeth Bower’s performances?

sure

I love this series!!

This is the second novel in the Helen Grace </I> series and it
follows right in the footsteps of the debut, eeny meeny, with brutal murders, multiple storylines, high wire tension, chilling twists, unforseeable turns, and believable characters doing their best to bring justice to the victims of crime. The unique quality of this series makes it very addictive, especially the audiobook editions.

Narrator Elizabeth Bower's performance it crisp, emotional, and down right magnificent! She takes the authors writing clean off the pages, making the story up close, personal, and, quite frankly, ALIVE!
So bring it, Mr. Alridge! Elizabeth will make your masterful stories live and breathe!

NEVER DISAPPOINT

Love all of Arlidge books and the witty titles. All of his books are quick reads. Though I normally prefer lengthier books, I don't mind these because he uses all the pages in his books constructively. No Fluff no unnecessary details just fast pace thrillers. Same fantastic narrator used for all his books which makes the stories even better and bring the characters to life.
