Review

As first published on USA Today

DI Helen Grace and her team venture into the dark and decadent nightlife of Southampton, where secrets, desires, pleasure and pain are the modus operandi—where duplicitous lives thrive behind closed doors. It’s a life Helen knows well and one she’s worked hard to keep private. But when someone she knows well is brutally murdered, her composure begins to unravel and her hidden compulsions threaten to be exposed.

The whole of Southampton is abuzz from the details of the murder, drawn to the eccentricity of the BDSM community. Emilia Garanita scents a big story too, and immediately gets on the case. It quickly becomes clear that the killer planned well, meticulously, and the team can’t seem to catch a break.

But when one murder become two, becomes three, and the common link is Helen Grace, the investigation takes on new meaning. Helen realizes someone has been watching, planning, for just this chance—the chance to ruin her.

As they race against the clock, clear lines get blurred, sides are taken and the truth will change the tide of Helen’s life.

Little Boy Blue may be the best, most heart-pounding installment in the series to date, as everything that could possibly go wrong does, and Helen’s fear of hurting those she loves the most, becomes the cruelest reality.

Synopsis

Oct-04 ★Detective Helen Grace faces her own dark compulsions in the twisty new thriller from the author of Pop Goes the Weasel and Eeny Meeny.

In the darkest corners of the city, there is a thriving nightlife where people can let loose and cross the lines of work and play, of pleasure and pain. But now that sanctuary has been breached. A killer has struck and a man is dead.

In a world where disguises and discretion are the norm, one admission could unravel a life. No one wants to come forward to say what they saw or what they know—including the woman heading the investigation: Detective Helen Grace.

Helen knew the victim. And the victim knew her—better than anyone else. And when the murderer strikes again, Helen must decide how many more lines she’s willing to cross to bring in a devious and elusive serial killer…
