The girl emerged from the woods, barely alive. Her story was beyond belief. But it was true. Every dreadful word of it. Days later, another desperate escapee is found – and a pattern is emerging. Pairs of victims are being abducted, imprisoned then faced with a terrible choice: kill or be killed. Would you rather lose your life or lose your mind? Detective Inspector Helen Grace has faced down her own demons on her rise to the top. As she leads the investigation to hunt down this unseen monster, she learns that it may be the survivors – living calling cards – who hold the key to the case. And unless she succeeds, more innocents will die…
I heard a lot about ‘Eeny meeny’ and once I bought it, I couldn’t wait to get started. The summary is promising and boy oh boy, I totally loved this one. When I start a book and I fall in love with it, I really want to do nothing else but finish it. Unfortunately, I started this when I went to see my aunt and I didn’t have a lot of reading time. It was great to see my aunt, but I only read during the drive to and from her and before I went to sleep. The book held me in its grip, I couldn’t stop talking about it, thinking about it or just wanting to read it.
When you think you know the story in the first half, the second half it only gets better. The characters are well thought out, you get to know them, the case develops and there are a few bizarre facts. The combination of the three made me so sad when I finished it, I wanted more. Thank god the second book in the Helen Grace series by M.J. Arlidge is already out and that is high on my wishlist!
‘Eeny meeny’ by M.J. Arlidge is a thriller that sucks you in right from the beginning and won’t let go, even after you’ve finished it. M.J. Arlidge wrote one heck of a thriller and I can’t wait to start with ‘Pop goes the weasel’.
