This is the third book in the DI Helen Grace series and matches the pace of the previous two novels. It is pacy and grips you right to the last page, the short chapters make it an easy read. In this novel we learn more about Helen Grace and see the developing relationships between the fellow officers. But it is the story that is gripping.
Ruby wakes up to discover, to her horror, that she is imprisoned in a cellar but can’t recall what has happened the night before. The last thing she remembers is being in a nightclub and now she is at the mercy of her captor. At the same a time a body of another young woman is found, but her family never reported her missing because they have been getting regular texts from her
.D.I. Helen Grace knows that time is against her as she tries to discover a link between the victims and unlock the key to a predator.
This is good but, for me, it hasn’t delivered the heart-stopping moments that the first book did. Nevertheless, book 4 is already on my reading list.
