Liar Liar: DI Helen Grace 4 | M. J. Arlidge
32 posts | 44 read | 22 to read
THE FOURTH DI HELEN GRACE THRILLER BY BESTSELLING AUTHOR M J ARLIDGE 'Helen Grace is one of the greatest heroes to come along in years' JEFFERY DEAVER In the dead of night, three raging fires light up the city skies. It's more than a tragic coincidence. For DI Helen Grace the flames announce the arrival of an evil she has never encountered before. Because this is no firestarter seeking sick thrills, but something more chilling: a series of careful, calculating acts of murder. But why were the victims chosen? What's driving the killer? And who will be next? A powder keg of fear, suspicion and dread has been laid. Now all it needs is a spark to set it off . . . PRAISE FOR M.J. ARLIDGE: 'The new Jo Nesbo' JUDY FINNIGAN 'Fast paced and nailbitingly tense ... gripping' SUN 'DI Helen Grace is a genuinely fresh heroine ... MJ Arlidge weaves together a tapestry that chills to the bone' Daily Mail 'Chilling stuff' Fabulist 'A chilling read' My Weekly 'A grisly, gripping thriller' Sunday Mirror 'Gruesomely realistic, intriguing and relentless. Arlidge's fledgling army of fans is about to grow' Sunday Sport 'Eeny Meeny debuts one of the best new series detectives, Helen Grace. Determined, tough and damaged, she must unravel a terrifying riddle of a killer kidnapping victims in pairs. Mesmerizing!' Lisa Gardner 'Expertly pulled off. It has a devious premise. DI Helen Grace is fiendishly awesome. It's scary as all hell. And it has a full cast of realistically drawn, interesting characters that make the thing read like a bullet' Will Lavender 'A fast-paced, twisting police procedural and thriller that's sure to become another bestseller' Huffington Post

FEATURING: LIAR, LIAR by M. J. Arlidge

Four separate, deadly fires all within two days' time. Was it one person or was it a team? The police department was baffled.

You will also find out the meaning of the title which had me puzzled until the end.

Thanks for the tag @EadieB #wondrouswednesday 1. A quick read of a library book - tagged. 2. Tricky! Freddie from the winter ghosts (Kate Mosse) and Violet from a single thread (Tracy Chevalier). Common griefs and desperate to share their love. 3. I don‘t mind either but I do like lots of different storylines linking together like in Cloud Atlas or The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto

EadieB @Helen19 Thanks for playing! I like your answers! 2y
Eggs ❤️ T. Chevalier! Thoughtful responses👏🏻👏🏻 2y
Helen19 @Eggs me too! I saw her talk at a festival once and she was brilliant. I know I‘ll read anything she writes! 2y

Today‘s Prompt: Liar

Four separate, deadly fires all within two days' time​.

LIAR, LIAR was ​an anxious, edgy, non-stop read simply because of the frightening subject​. ​Every time I thought I knew who the arsonist was, I was wrong.​

The ending is outstanding, and quite a surprise.

The fourth case for DI Helen Grace & her team revolves around arson. The case itself was fairly interesting but I felt that the writing is stagnating a bit.

The characters, especially Charlie, are repeating behaviours & there is no character development. Also what‘s with the negative view of single people? Disappointing. Rating: 2⭐️

Reading LIAR, LIAR would be best during the day​light hours. The ending is quite a surprise.

MJ Arlidge has done it again! Liar Liar was much better than I had expected. I usually am all about dark, gruesome, twisted serial killer novels but this police procedural about an arsonist was just as interesting, addictive, & creepy. I kept wanting to know more as the book went on. Detective Helen Grace is favorite of mine. I can‘t wait to read the next one!

I had a hard time getting into Still Life by Louise Penny so I picked this one up instead! MJ Arlidge always starts the book with the right amount of suspense to get you hooked. I'm glad I switched reads because this one, as always with his books, has me hooked.

ArcticDwarf Just started this one! Love his writing! 5y

4/5 stars
Definitely not the best book in the series but I still enjoyed it. The crime was so different from the other books in the series so far which really helped.
I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.

What are you currently reading?
I started Liar Liar by MJ Arlidge the other day and I'm really enjoying it so far! It's been a lot more tame than the other books in the series up to this point, the crime isn't as unusual as some of the others Arlidge has come up with.

Weer een spannende en intrigerende deel in de Inspecteur Helen Grace serie. Deze keer dacht ik echt de moordenaar te kennen maar diegene dat ik in gedachte had was maar een stuk van de puzzel dus ik was weer aangenaam verrast. Ook de einde zag nik niet aankomen. Ik ben zeer tevreden met alle delen dusver en duik nu in de volgende..
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Een echte aanrader!!

Ik vind deze serie geweldig! Ik hou van thrillers met seriemoordenaars en ik vind de hoofd personage, Inspecteur Helen Graceheel stoer maar toch heeft zij ook haar zachtere kanten en is gewoon intrigerend. Deze serie is echt aan te raden!

Another fantastic read in the Helen Grace series. Had me hooked straight from the start. Hadn't read anything for a while, hadn't had the time but knew this book would give me my reading mojo back. I can't recommend this author enough. Another fantastic read from M J Arlidge.

sooze76 Never read any but will try and find one now to give one a go 6y

Mehso-so

I've read 3 out of 4 in this set. Although I love the fact that Helen Grace is equal parts badass and future psych patient, I think this one had a solid beginning and end with a wasted middle. Triplicate crime scenes work for and against the story. The best parts are the dialogue and interviews of which there are far too few. I think I'll read one more before deciding whether to continue the series.

My weekend read.
This series is addicting, though it's also the first time I thought I hit my "too dark" limit. But I continue because the mystery and characters are interesting.

I like it when I find random things tucked away in used books I've bought. It's fun to imagine the story behind them. This book's obviously travelled!

I'm really starting to enjoy Arlidge's Helen Grace series and this fourth entry is humming along so far a quarter way through.

This series started super strong, faltered a bit on book 3 (there was a lot of character introspection that felt contrived to me), and is mostly back on track with book 4. The mystery was as intriguing as ever, but there were some plot points that oddly led nowhere. Still very excited for book 5!
