This was absolutely brilliant! Love Helen Grace and the very gritty, original storyline. It's definitely not for the faint hearted, it is very graphic at times (the maggots 🤢)
Can't wait to read book number 2 😍

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.

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? 1y
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 😀 1y

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

A serial killer has created a cruel game in which to kill her victims and scar the others for life: Eeny Meeny. Two people kidnapped, put in an inescapable place w/no food or water. In order to be released you must kill the other victim. And so begins this twisted novel with Detective Helen Grace leading the chase to find the killer.

I must note this is gritty, violent, and at times very descriptive.

⭐️⭐️⭐️💫

#mystery #thriller #suspense

CoverToCoverGirl It's in my TBR library... your review about it being overly descriptive has me a little worried.. 😳but intrigued too. 2y
Kristy_K @CoverToCoverGirl It's definitely a darker, more graphic novel than say Tana French's. But if you can get past that, its a really good book! 2y
