    The girl emerged from the woods, barely alive. Her story was beyond belief. But it was true. Every dreadful word of it. Days later, another desperate escapee is found - and a pattern is emerging. Pairs of victims are being abducted, imprisoned then faced with a terrible choice: Kill or be killed. Would you rather lose your life or lose your mind? Eeny Meeny is an electrifying debut, with the nerve-shredding intensity of Saw and Along Came a Spider.

    The body of a middle-aged man is discovered in Southampton's red light district - horrifically mutilated, with his heart removed. Hours later - and barely cold - the heart arrives with his wife and children by courier. A pattern emerges when another male victim is found dead and eviscerated, his heart delivered soon afterwards. The media call it Jack the Ripper in reverse; revenge against the men who lead sordid double lives visiting prostitutes.

    Compelling central character

    The first 2 books had only one narrator, Elizabeth Bower, so it's distracting to say the least to have another narrator join series and it doesn't rea..Show More »

    Perfect for fans of Jo Nesbo and Mo Hayder, Liar Liar showcases all the hallmarks of Arlidge's taut and rapid-fire writing, including his protagonist, DI Helen Grace, and the Southampton based team. Faced with yet another ruthless serial killer, one with a penchant for pyromania, DI Helen Grace is an unwilling participant in a race against this new sadistic combatant.

    I can recommend this book as it is a solid story.

    Really enjoyed this book. I am a reader of "who done it" stories and found this one very entertaining. Not sure why it is that many so called succ..Show More »

    Helen's most personal case yet as she investigates the shocking and unexpected murder of a close friend found cocooned in plastic. It looks like it was a tragic accident - a sex game gone wrong. The investigation soon threatens to expose Helen's private life, and she has to make some tough personal choices along the way as she hunts a twisted and elusive killer who is swiftly racking up more murders.

    Steady pace.

    Slow at times. Suited to a ABC movie. Nice set up to a sequel. Good listen. Somewhat predictable, but leaves the end open for another 4or 5 scenarios...Show More »
