Liar Liar (Helen Grace#4) by M.J. Arlidge

Kindle Edition, 440 pages
Published September 10th 2015 by Penguin

Detective Helen Grace gets caught in an inferno of death and destruction in the red-hot new thriller from the author of Eeny MeenyPop Goes the Weasel, and The Doll’s House

Detective Helen Grace has never seen such destruction. Six fires in twenty-four hours. Two people dead. Several more injured. It’s as if someone wants to burn the city to the ground...

With the whole town on high alert, Helen and her team must sift through the rubble to find the arsonist, someone whose thirst for fire—and control—is reducing entire lives to ashes.

One misstep could mean Helen’s career—and more lives lost. And as the pressure mounts and more buildings burn, Helen’s own dark impulses threaten to consume her…

My Thoughts…

I love a good series.    Helen Grace is a series yet each book can be read as a standalone.     The characters (Helen Grace) appears in each one but each story is its own crime to solve.   Liar Liar is a thriller with plenty of actions, lots of surprises, and a ton of action.    Sounds perfect, it is! 

DI Helen Grace is an amazing character.     She is a complex woman, working in a man’s world, and solving horrible crimes.       In this book she is trying to find a serial arsonist.     There is a race against time and even when the newspaper journalist starts writing stories about how she is failing to do her job she never strays from the path.    She knows the route needed to find the perpetrator and does what needs to be done to solve the crime. 

I love the format that M.J. Arlidge uses.    The short chapters, broke into different characters and events, make the book easy to read.   The story moves so quickly that it seemed I had just started it and I was already done.      It was interesting to read the different points of view and different happenings of the same timeframes.     

The ending… oh the ending.   I am not sure what I am thinking more of.    The person who was guilty of the arsons and how they were caught or the hint at the next book in this series. 

This is an amazing book.   I have recommended past Helen Grace books and cannot wait to share my thoughts on this one to my fellow thriller/suspense readers.
