Little Boy Blue (Helen Grace #5) by M.J. Arlidge
THE FIFTH DI HELEN GRACE THRILLER BY BESTSELLING AUTHOR M J ARLIDGE, for the first time in hardback
***** 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 . . .
I would like to thank Netgalley and the publishers for allowing me to read this 5th installment of the DI Grace series.
When I started reading this, I wasn't sure what to think as I kinda enjoyed the others in the series. But I'm not sure what I thought about it as I was reading it, I started thinking if I wanted to read it as I couldn't connect to the characters. Not sure if I was in the right frame of mind, but as I carried on with the story, it got better and I started warming to some characters. BUT not everyone was favourite in my opinion.
If you've not read the series, you need to start with Eeny Meeny and see what you think.
