Publisher's Summary

Helen awaits trial in a crumbling women's prison in Southampton. She has a fight on to prove her innocence from inside her prison cell, but this soon turns out to be the least of her worries.

A serial killer is picking off fellow inmates, thriving in an environment where there is truly nowhere to run. Is it a criminal giving in to their dark urges or a member of the prison staff preying on the captive population? Helen must work fast to reveal this devious killer, all the time wondering if she will be next on her list....

    "Enjoyable"

    I did as another reviewer suggested and was able to listen to Part 1 and Part 2 straight after each other. The story was good and there are some seemingly impossible happenings in the prison but it is fiction !

    Story
    "Helen Grace does it again!"

    I am enthralled with the Helen Grace series. Nail biting to the max. The strong performance of Elizabeth Bower makes all the difference. She could read the phone book to me and I would be entranced!

    Story
    "Little Boy Blue (Book #5) Continuation."
    What did you love best about Hide and Seek?

    This was not as enjoyable as Little Boy Blue. Something is lost when Helen is not interacting with her co-workers regularly. It makes for a monotone read.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I think the most interesting thing is that Aldridge has managed to stretch this character for 6 fairly enjoyable books. I think characters have to be REALLY interesting to sustain a series. Helen's personal baggage is starting to really get old, however, and I may not continue the series after this.


    Which character – as performed by Elizabeth Bower – was your favorite?

    I really like Charlie but, as most of the leads in these books are female, after a while they all started to sound the same.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not particularly. I think they've become formulaic. They're still good but not as good as some other police procedurals.


    Any additional comments?

    N/A.

    Story
    "Slightly disappointing"

    Having read all of this series this one was a bit far fetched and the storyline much more predictable than its predecessors. I will still purchase the next one though and look forward to a return to the usual excellent storylines and fuller characters.

    Story
    "Great - but..."

    ... not as good as the previous 5. It finished the story off nicely, but equally, not the best. However, in saying that, I still enjoyed it and I love the style of writing. It's certainly another enjoyable book my Arlidge. The narration is excellent!

    Story
    "Story ok but poorest DI Grace yet."

    I have enjoyed all the DI Grace books so far. However as a listener with a good knowledge of the Criminal justice system I found it incredulous that suspicious deaths in a prison did not attract an investigation from the Met police. when more deaths occur this point is stretched beyond belief. A Police officer on remand would never be on the same wing as convicted murders etc and be in the general prison population.Remand prisoners also have a different set of rules etc from convicted prisoners. The wrap up at the end with the demise of Gardiner could also not happen as described.Some obvious research and procedure gaps that did not occur in earlier books. Story flowed enough to keep ones interest but outcome was always predicable. Hope next one is better.

    Story
    "Another great!"
    What made the experience of listening to Hide and Seek the most enjoyable?

    Loved this - the story of both inside and outside the 'prison'. The narration was great and really can't wait to see what is next for Helen Grave


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Love the main character, Helen Grace. Just a work of 'art' from M J Arlidge!


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    As the story starts to climax but I can't say too much and give it all away!!


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Few 'huh' moments when you are wondering what is around the corner so to speak!


    Any additional comments?

    Just loved it - can't wait for the next and really enjoyed Elizabeth Bower too - will keep an eye on her as well as MJ A!
