Book Review – Love Me Not

by M.J. Arlidge (Penguin) ISBN: 9780718183851

Love Me Not is the seventh book in M.J. Arlidge’s DI Helen Grace thriller series.

A disillusioned and angry young couple plan bloody revenge on all who let them down. In a shooting spree across Southampton they execute their plan.

Wresting with her own daemons and constantly questioning her own judgement, recently reappointed Detective Inspector Helen Grace of Southampton Central follows the blood trail to put a stop to the carnage.

Along the way there are a few lucky escapes as well as a few unfortunate necessity kills. There seems to be no end to the slaughter. Going with gut instinct Helen tries to figure out who the next victim will be. In a brutal 14 hour man hunt the race is over but ends in tragedy.

Hatchets and old hurts are buried along with the fallen. Love Me Not is fast paced and action packed. Clever twists and turns, with nail-biting narrow escapes, make it nearly impossible to put this book down.
