Hide And Seek opening line: She moved fast, keeping her head down.
Hide And Seek
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 . . .
In Little Boy Blue Helen opens up to her boss about her private life. She also dismisses his advances. I get the feeling that these two actions result in her finding herself in prison. Living in circumstances foreign to her, and forging friendships with people she would normally never associate with, Helen Grace finds herself doing what she knows best. Solving crimes and working out who the bad people really are. Her dogged determination is echoed in the outside world by a friend who just cannot accept Helen’s fate.
M.J. Arlidge has me hooked on his novels. This is the sixth novel in the series and they have all been excellent reads. Each one is gripping in the story he tells, and once again, I am looking forward to the next installment.
