Review quote

Arlidge and Helen Grace never fail to disappoint. Fresh out of Holloway, and with some personal issues within the MIT team, Helen is hot on the heels of the next serial killer letting loose on Southampton. As always, I thoroughly enjoyed this instalment and it was good to be back out on the street with Helen again * THE WORLD IS A BOOK ABOUT ME * The pacing is fast, probably faster than in previous books even. This is driven on by Arlidge's consistent use of short, punchy chapters and sparing and yet authentic dialogue * JEN MED's BOOK REVIEWS * One of those books where you ignore the pile of dirty washing and the million and one other things that you have to do, just so that you can keep reading * IF ONLY I COULD READ FASTER * Like the others in the series it doesn't disappoint, it's a crime thriller full of adrenaline, action, gore and suspense. Arlidge's writing is succinct and snappy; it never fails to hook me in * HARRY'S BOOK CLUB * The author has yet again delivered a gripping, fast paced read that I for one devoured in one sitting... Helen is the UK version of James Patterson's Alex Cross series * BY THE LETTER BOOK REVIEWS * [LOVE ME NOT] combines M.J. Arlidge's prickly protagonist Grace and his skill at creating compelling action - acquired in a 15-year career working in prime time television - to produce this fast-paced thriller about a pair of serial killers * CRIME FICTION LOVER * Once again Arlidge produces a great little thriller, the majority of which takes place in the space of less than twenty-four hours... if you like an occasional read-it-in-one-sitting type novel than this is for you. Highly Entertaining * SHOTS * An intense and heart thumping read... This maybe the seventh book in the series but it's still a series that has plenty to offer, the plots are surprising, the characters have evolved and M J Arlidge's writing shows no signs of getting stagnant or repetitive * BOOK REVIEW CAFE * [LOVE ME NOT] should seriously come with a safety harness, because it is one hell of a ride... An extremely fast-paced, page turning thriller * Tracy Fenton, COMPULSIVE READERS * I'm kicking myself for missing Arlidge's first six books which all hit the bestseller lists. But this blizzard of fast-moving action made me an instant fan * PETERBOROUGH EVENING TELEGRAPH * Meticulously researched, solidly constructed * IRISH TIMES * Chills to the bone * DAILY MAIL * The new Jo Nesbo * Judy Finnidgan * Helen Grace is one of the greatest heroes to come along in years * Jeffrey Deaver *
