Huge thank you to Orion Publishers for my advance copy of this one! Out June 2020.
All Fall Down by MJ Arlidge
Genre: Mystery, Thriller
BUG Rating: 4.5/5
Overall: I’ve been a huge fan of the DI Helen Grace series right from the beginning. This series holds a special place in my heart, it was the very first crime fiction series I discovered!
All Fall Down is book 9, out in June, and does not disappoint. Helen is back with an EPIC case and as usual … barely makes it through alive! What I loved about this one was the structure was a little different from the last ones. The current case was broken up by extracts of an upcoming book. We actually ended up getting two mysteries to solve.
It was great to see all the main characters back again too. I love Charlie – Helen’s side kick! And getting to know Grace Simmons a bit more too…. and then of course, Joseph Hudson is back, bringing along a whole lot more mystery and intrigue as we (and Helen!) try to understand more about this guy.
Arlidge takes us on such a ride with this one, and I was on the edge of my seat throughout. A real addictive thriller that I got through in a day!
“You have one hour to live.”
Those are the only words on the phone call. Then they hang up. Surely, a prank? A mistake? A wrong number? Anything but the chilling truth… That someone is watching, waiting, working to take your life in one hour.
The job of finding out falls to DI Helen Grace: a woman with a track record in hunting killers. However, this is A case where the killer seems to always be one step ahead of the police and the victims.
With no motive, no leads, no clues – nothing but pure fear – an hour can last a lifetime…
