Hide and Seek by M.J. Arlidge (Helen Grace #6)

Hide And Seek M. J. Arlidge

In Hide and Seek by M.J. Arlidge, Helen Grace is in prison for a crime she didn’t commit (we know that). Sadly, except for her loyal readers, the only other person who believes Helen is DS Charlie Brooks, who is her loyal teammate and friend. Everybody else was quick to believe Helen’s guilt and forget all about her. All stories in this series are dark, but I found Hide and Seek to be, so far, darkest of all. I couldn’t believe to imagine life in prison, especially not for someone who used to put others behind bars.Now, as she’s sitting in […] Read more »

Little Boy Blue by M.J. Arlidge (Helen Grace #5)

Little Boy Blue by M.J. Arlidge

Little Boy Blue is the latest offering by the author M.J. Arlidge in his popular Helen Grace British crime mystery series. I received the book from Netgalley a while ago and really wanted to review it earlier, however, what kept me from it was the fact that I can’t stand not reading all the books in order.

The Doll’s House by M.J. Arlidge (Helen Grace #3)

The Dolls House by M.J. Arlidge

The Doll’s House is the third book in the Helen Grace crime series by the British crime mystery author M.J. Arlidge. I have started reading the series soon after book 1, Eeny Meeny came out, and I got hooked right away, even though it was the author’s debut novel. Inspector Helen Grace seems to get all the hard and really strange cases. In the first book, the serial killer would abduct pairs, leave them without food and water, but with a gun, having a single goal in mind: only one person would get out alive. In this third book (yeah skipped book #2 […] Read more »

Eeny Meeny by M.J. Arlidge (Helen Grace #1)

Eeny meeny by M J Arlidge

Eeny Meeny is the debut novel of the British author M.J. Arlidge. Penguin publisher sent me a copy through Netgalley along with a review request, and as I usually love everything this publishing house puts together, I eagerly picked it up. In a nutshell, the story is about a serial killer who plays the eeny meeny moo game with deadly consequences. He (or she) abducts pairs of people, seemingly in a random fashion, keeps them in a secluded and well-isolated room and leaves them starving, with no food or water, but a gun and an SMS on a throwaway mobile […] Read more »
