Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the unabridged downloadable audiobook edition of Running Blind by M. J. Arlidge, read by Grace Saif.

New to the police force, WPC Helen Grace is assigned to her first clear-cut case. Sure, there's something sinister beneath the surface, and Helen has a bad feeling...but who's going to take the word of a rookie?

Fresh out of Police College, 18-year-old WPC Helen Grace is the first to arrive on the scene of a fatal collision. Her colleagues see nothing amiss, convinced that the young man's death was a tragic accident. But Helen is not so sure. Who is their mystery victim? Why would he risk life and limb running across a busy highway? And what might he have been running from?

There's a dark secret lurking amid the quiet fields of Hampshire, one that Helen is determined to uncover. In this audiobook rookie Helen Grace discovers what it's like to be a woman in a man's world, facing impossible odds as she races against time to save vulnerable lives.

Disappointing!

I was looking forward to listening to this prequel of the Helen Grace series but was bitterly disappointed for several reasons. The main reason I felt disappointed was the complete lack of effort made to get police procedure & characterisation correct. I’ve never been so irritated by a book. I kept having to tell myself not to be unfair, that it was a work of fiction after all. However, taking literary license into account, I still expect a certain degree of plausibility! I could go into detail about the whys & wherefores, but I won’t. I nevertheless persevered until the end of the book in the hope that I would find something good to say about it but all I can say is that it was an ok story but with some gaping holes in it.
