    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.

    Great Listen!! "What would you do?"

    I really, really enjoyed this listen, well read by the multiple narrators this was a great first outing for the writer.
    Great story, we have all p..Show More »

    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.

    Fabulous, fast moving and brilliantly narrated

    One of the very best.

    I have listened to all three Helen Grace books in rapid succession - and the stories are fantastic. This - the 3rd - was just as good as the first 2. ..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.

    Helen Grace continues to be of interest

    I would not listen to Liar Liar again because I do not think it has any hidden depths - however, for me, that is not the point: it is an entertaining ..Show More »

    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..Show More »

    Jodie's arriving at her third children's home. She's only 15. Maybe this time will be different. She'll be safe. Looked after. But the truth is Jodie has no one left to protect her. She must defend herself. She must change.

    Good to get the background of DCI Helen Grace

    From reading all of the books in the series, you pretty much guess her history. However it's give a better insight to her personality.
