Having read all of the Helen Grace books and being disappointed with the last one this was a pleasant return from Arlidge.
With a breakneck pace and clever plot Grace is back where she belongs

Wow just wow!  MJ Arlidge just gets better.  After the trauma of her wrongful arrest and imprisonment, Helen Grace is back at work and in charge of her team again.    Riding her beloved bike in the early morning, she sees a woman's body lying in the road.  At first it looks like a tragic accident. But when she gets closer  it's clear she's looking at a coldblooded killing. But why would anyone target a much loved wife and mother?   Then across town, a shopkeeper is killed while a customers is left unharmed.  A teacher is also gunned down but pupils are let go .  But what lies behind the killer's choices?  Who lives? Who dies? Who's next? The clock is ticking.
Helen and her team must solve this deadly puzzle by getting one step ahead of the killer to avoid more bloodshed.  This is a very fast paced story.  It was hard to put this book down  - luckily I had time to devour it!  Through out the well plotted story, we see Helen's relationships with her colleagues Charlie, who supported her when wrongly accused, and Joanne who sought to prove her guilt.  Can she work with Joanne or will she still rely heavily on Charlie?  Helen is a complex heroine and her relationships are equally difficult.  This adds to the depth and interest of the novel.  The reaction of her colleagues is important in solving the crime but with results that impact on everyone.  The seventh outing for Helen and team is one of the best in the series.  A definite recommendation from me!

Another fast paced, thrilling story filled about Helen Grace. This story is about a couple who embark on a killing spree, Helen has to stop a young girl not unlike herself or her sister. During this exciting book you see more of Helens vulnerable side. 

I cannot wait for the next book.

FANTASTIC read this in one sitting. 5am and just finished couldn't put it down.
Helen is back again newly acquitted from her wrongful incarceration she is eager to be back in the saddle. This book is about Helen's journey acquiring trust from her former colleagues and for herself.
Great plot with the usual twists and turns.
Highly recommended read but beware you won't stop till the end.
