Liar Liar (Helen Grace #4) By M J Aldridge


Book Description:

THE FOURTH DI HELEN GRACE THRILLER BY BESTSELLING AUTHOR M J ARLIDGE ‘Helen Grace is one of the greatest heroes to come along in years’ JEFFERY DEAVER

In the dead of night, three raging fires light up the city skies. It’s more than a tragic coincidence. For DI Helen Grace the flames announce the arrival of an evil she has never encountered before. Because this is no firestarter seeking sick thrills, but something more chilling: a series of careful, calculating acts of murder. But why were the victims chosen? What’s driving the killer? And who will be next? A powder keg of fear, suspicion and dread has been laid. Now all it needs is a spark to set it off…

My Thoughts:

Liar Liar is the fourth in the DI Helen Grace series and in my opinion the best to date.

I have read all four books in the series and can not recommend highly enough.

Liar Liar sees Helen investigating what looks to be like a deliberate arson attack on an unsuspecting family in their home. Its not long though before there is another one and Helen and her team are set for another race against time to catch the culprit.

This is one book that will have the reader rushing and checking their fire alarms to make sure they are in a good working condition.

I really don’t know how the author does it but he keeps creating stories that are fast paced, gripping and on the edge of your seat reads.

The author is so descriptive in his writing that when the fires were taking place I could almost feel the heat and smell the smoke that the victims were having to endure. It certainly makes for a very chilling read.

Due to Helens past, she is quite a complexed character and I think for readers to get the full enjoyment out of this book you would need to start from the beginning to understand Helen that bit more.

I personally loved that Charlie had quite a big role in this book and it is a great way of reminding us how hard it can be for a working mum who has a very demanding job and is torn between family life and work.

Liar Liar is a great read that at times was heart stopping. The author had me fooled all the way through out this story and I had absolute no clue who was behind the attacks until I read it. Fantastic book, now the wait for the fifth in the series……

Many thanks to Penguin UK an Netgalley for an Advanced Readers Copy of this book.
