The "dark, twisted, thought-provoking" (#1 New York Times bestseller Tami Hoag) international bestsellerfirst in the new series featuring Detective Helen Grace. Two people are abducted, imprisoned, and left with a gun. As hunger and thirst set in, only one walks away alive. Its a game more twisted than any Detective Helen Grace has ever seen. If she hadnt spoken with the shattered survivors herself, she almost wouldnt believe them. Helen is familiar with the dark sides of human nature, including her own, but this casewith its seemingly random victimshas her baffled. But as more people go missing, nothing will be more terrifying than when it all starts making sense.... From the Trade Paperback edition.

This was a reread. I read this about three years ago and somehow just lost track of this series. I love Helen Grace, and I can‘t wait to read the next in the series. Definite warnings for “Very Icky Stuff”.

The first book in a series featuring the badass DI Helen Grace. She is hunting a killer with a very novel MO. I am really enjoying this one and looking forward to making my way through the series.

I love the titles of these books, they're parts of little children's rhymes. I found the case interesting but I didn't like the main detective Helen Grace. She did unwarranted things that made her unsympathetic. I think I've outgrown thrillers. I don't read a lot in this genre anymore.

I really thought I wasn‘t going to like this book at the beginning. It moved too fast and there were too many character point of views to follow. BUT BOY WAS I WRONG. I adored this book and actually really enjoyed jumping between narrators. Even though I get the comparison to Saw, it really is nothing like it. The plot is so much more interesting and captivating. I can‘t wait for the next one to come in at the library!

I struggled with this book. I wanted to love it. 😩. I didn‘t care for the characters much and parts were very disturbing. The twist at the end was unexpected, but didn‘t wow me enough to rate it higher.

Well it's not for the faint of heart!! I read alot of thrillers including scandi noir which can be grim... But... this is quite brutal and parts made me feel physically sick. Having said that, that's not all there is to it, really enjoyed the story and did not see the twist coming at all. I like Helen Grace and bought because I'd read another of the series without realising it was part of a series. Looking forward to the next.

M J Arlidge has written a fraught, fast paced thriller. There is murder mystery, police procedural, police corruption, and great characters. Mark the emotional wreck, but a great policeman, Charlie who‘s ambitious and strong and Helen the woman everyone wants to be, but has her own demons and scars.

I loved the way it moves between the crimes themselves and the police procedural. It runs so well and is chilling, believable and unputdownable.

Cathythoughts Great review! I see I have it stacked too 👍🏻👍🏻❤️ 4y

Fantastic book! The first in a series following DI Helen Grace and I can‘t wait to read the others now! It‘s a dark story and the initial premise of the plot reminded me a little of the first Saw film. I liked Helen as a main character and look forward to seeing her story develop in the other books.

laurenlovesliterature Do you know if this series needs to be read in order? 5y
dawnsworldblog @laurenlovesliterature I‘ve actually just started the second book in the series this morning and there is quite a lot of reference at the start to the previous book so while you could read them as standalones I‘d suggest that to get the most from them and to avoid any spoilers about previous books they would be best read in order 😀 5y

This was ok. The premise was interesting but the characters were really flat and I didn‘t care about any of them. Also, I felt the author tried too hard to be shocking with the gore. I may read the next in the series at some point.

1. Agatha Christie, thrillers and some spooky stuff are my beach reads. I am looking forward to putting some real time in, Into the Drowning Deep.
2. Otters are cute and pretty resourceful.
3. I haven‘t really had a chance to travel. I always enjoy when I get a chance to go to Popham Beach.

This is all that a crime thriller should be and more! Fast paced, twisted plot, seriously screwed-up characters, and LOTS of WTF moments. A strong female character in Detective Inspector Helen Grace makes this my new favorite crime series. Thank you to @MicheleinPhilly for turning me on to this new-to-me author. #blameitonlitsy
