THE BRAND NEW THRILLER FROM THE MIND OF MILLION-COPY BESTSELLER M. J. ARLIDGE
A crimewave sweeps through the city and no-one is safe. An arson at the docks. A carjacking gone wrong. A murder in a country park. What connects all these crimes without causes, which leave no clues?
Detective Inspector Helen Grace faces the rising tide of cases which threatens to drown the city. But each crime is just a piece of a puzzle which is falling into place.
And when it becomes clear just how twisted and ingenious this web of crime is, D.I. Grace will realise that it may be impossible to stop it . . .
THE BEST BOOK YET FROM THE MASTER OF THE KILLER THRILLER.
Happy Sunday everyone! I am delighted to take part in the blog tour for Truth Or Dare, the gripping new novel by M. J. Arlidge.
A crime wave seems to hit the city of Southampton and DI Helen Grace and her team are scrambling to figure out if the crimes are connected and to stop the killer before they hit again. The police is under a lot of pressure to stop the crimes while DI Grace has to face a split of alliances inside her own team.
I have to admit that I was introduced late to this fantastic series by M. J. Arlidge, so I haven’t read all the books yet (but I am catching up), but Truth Or Dare can easily be read as a stand-alone if you are new to the series, as well. Even though I haven’t read all the books, this is one of my favourite police procedural series and I love the character of DI Helen Grace. She is authentic, relatable, and tough and she doesn’t let anyone push her around. In Truth Or Dare she has to contend with someone from inside her team trying to sabotage her career, but that doesn’t stop her from doing her job.
The story is addictive and engaging. Set in an arc of seven days, the plot is suspenseful and twisty and, even though there were a few things that I figured out on my own, it still took me frequently by surprise. The author flawlessly switches from one character’s perspective to another, and the tension just keeps building and building. A clever thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat for a few hours.
A huge thank you to Tracy and Orion for inviting me to join the blog tour and providing me with a proof of this novel.
