Book Review: Little Boy Blue by M.J. Arlidge

**Complimentary products received in exchange for our honest review.  All opinions are ours and ours alone**

Sometimes too much of a good thing can be good. In the year or so since publication of M.J. Arlidge’s smash debut Eeny Meeny, the brilliant but complicated Helen Grace is back for a fifth harrowing case in LITTLE BOY BLUE (Berkely Trade Paperback Original; October 4, 2016; $15.00).

 

About the book:
Helen Grace is no stranger to the sick and depraved. Using her grit, wits, and sometimes skirting the line of legality, she has taken down some of the sickest and most depraved criminals in the UK, all while doing the best to hold her very controlled, but very separate personal and professional lives in their respective corners. However, despite her best efforts, her two lives are on a collision course.

Helen keeps a facet of her personal life an extremely guarded secret. But, tucked into a corner of Southampton, there is a thriving nightlife where people can let loose and cross the lines of work and play, of pleasure and pain. That sanctuary has been breached. A killer has struck and a man is dead. And in this world where discretion is necessary, no one wants to come forward to say what they saw or what they know—which includes Helen Grace herself.  

This crime hits Helen close to home. Too close. Helen has few, if any, true confidants. And the victim knew her better than probably anyone else in her life. 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.

My thoughts:
Yikes!  This fast-paced nail-biter is perfect for the spooky Halloween season!  I literally had a hard time putting this one down.  I am a fan of MJ Arlidge and Little Blue Boy didn't disappoint:)  I love how the story is told from many different points of view...it really amps up the intrigue.  If you like mystery thrillers, you should definitely give this book and Arlidge's previous work a try.
