This is the 6th DI Helen Grace thriller. Following on from the previous novel, Little Boy Blue, Grace finds herself in HMP Holloway, framed for murder, virtually friendless and a possible future victim of a ruthless serial killer. And that’s if she survives beatings and murderous attacks from other inmates, many of whom are incarcerated because of Grace.

When an inmate is found dead in a locked cell with every orifice on her body sewn tightly shut, Grace finds herself on the trail of a devious and insane killer. On the outside, her only hope is her faithful colleague and friend, Charlie Brooks. Meanwhile, DI Joanne Sanderson, Grace’s replacement, is sitting on the fence, keen to make her mark as Helen’s replacement but feeling disloyal to her ex-boss at the same time.

Arlidge has written a terrific little thriller here. Its pace is non-stop and unrelenting. The chapters are never more than three pages long. The author grabs your attention from the start and you find yourself reading “just another chapter” until, before you know it, it’s all over. The usual cast of characters is here including Helen’s superior, the slimy Jonathan Gardam as well as the odious Emilia Garanita. Many entertaining new characters appear such as Wheelchair Annie and her thug-in-chief Alexis. Grace will be lucky to survive.

This is not high literature but it is certainly fun and exciting. I will be there for the next Helen Grace novel three months from now. Make sure that you are too.
