A chilling thriller that is so intense it won’t let you put the book down for a second.
Plot: Detective Inspector Helen Grace is no stranger to tragedy. But when a body is found in a Southampton nightclub, the death cuts too close to the bone. Hiding her personal connection to the victim – and a double-life which must remain secret at all costs – Helen becomes a woman possessed, working her team around the clock to chase down every lead. As the killer strikes again, the investigation takes its toll not only on Helen but also her senior officers. Tempers flare, friendships fray and Helen faces an impossible choice. Confess her sins and lose control of the case? Or keep living a lie, protecting her darkest secrets, and risk getting trapped in this tangled web? But whatever she does, this killer will not stop until the truth is revealed: there are some fates worse than death…
Remarks: I was pleasently surprised by this book. M J Arlidge did a fantastic job with the story and literally had my attention throughout the entire novel. He is so good at writing and has such a special way with words which made the book that much better. I was gripped on every page which is something that doesn’t happen to me too often. The characters were super interesting and I found myself invested in each and every one of them. There are awesome twists and turns along the way and the character development throughout the novel was impressive. There were, however, a few parts that felt drawn out or that didn’t add much value to the story which, although gripping, was rather unnecessary. I recommend this book.
