Summary

Do you want to play the game?

The brand-new thriller from the mind of million-copy best-selling author M. J. Arlidge

A crimewave sweeps through the city and no one is safe. An arson at the docks. A carjacking gone wrong. A murder in a country park. What connects all these crimes without causes, which leave no clues?

Detective Inspector Helen Grace faces the rising tide of cases which threatens to drown the city. But each crime is just a piece of a puzzle which is falling into place.

And when it becomes clear just how twisted and ingenious this web of crime is, D.I. Grace will realise that it may be impossible to stop it....

The best book yet from the master of the killer thriller.

Sneaky,

No spoilers but a cliff hanger…pretty annoying. Good book, kept me hooked, predictable though. I’m a bit disappointed, will say the cliff hanger is more about DI grace than the storyline but that is the direction of the series I think. I keep buying these because ive listened to them all, but I lost the impetus to have to buy the next one. I got back on board a year or so later….still a good story. Narration is great (except for Hudson….im scouse, he isn’t, he’s not even Wirral). Still enjoy it. Feels a bit throwing characters in to keep the narrative going. You can’t keep a good thing going forever…and that’s what it feels like. Feel awful saying this because the earlier books are gripping (bear in mind I’m listening, and reading is a whole different experience). Hmmmm, just a tad disappointed, I do love this series though. Bring Charlie back! …just get a childminder :) I don’t hate the book, it was entertaining and gripping, and I was there watching it play out, so good writing and good narration. Better than a lot of other books I’ve listened to lately.

so glad I bought this book.

Great narrator. Read the book over two days, kept me guessing hope there is more to come. Recommend highly. Enjoy.

Very entertaining as you would expect from this author. Elizabeth Bower is excellent as ever.

I was hoping for more…

The plot, though intriguing at times, was a bit far-fetched. Helen is her usual “bad to bone” copper,
BAHAHA, who thinks she doesn't have to answer to anyone.

It’s annoying how she’ll put her “team” and those she pledges to “serve and protect” in danger so she can be the star. For example, speeding around on her Kawasaki or not following protocols while pursuing a “suspect,” which endangers her but unfairly her team as they have to chase after her… She’s immature and selfish… For real, how old is Helen now? Grow up!

I feel embarrassed for Helen as she’s “whipping” around on her bike while rolling up to investigations and crimes scenes, acting like she is a badass in her leathers.

I guess after waiting this long for another book, I wanted more. I zoned out a lot found myself having to repeat chapters. I’m sick of Amelia and Hudson and ready for something new in the series.

Not what I expected...

The Helen Grace series is my favorite, so I was highly anticipating this. My disappointment was the ending of the book, which dissimilar to the previous books. I was left with a sense of dissatisfaction, that I did not have with any of the previous books.
