Book Review: Cat and Mouse (DI Helen Grace #11) by M. J. Arlidge #catandmouse @Tr4cyF3nt0n

When you think you’re safe,
When you think you’re all alone,
That’s when he’ll come for you…

A silent killer stalks the city, targeting those home alone at night, playing a deadly game of cat and mouse with the victims.

As panic spreads, Detective Inspector Helen Grace leads the investigation, but is herself a hunted woman, her every step shadowed by a ruthless psychopath bent on revenge.

As she tracks the murderer, Grace begins to suspect there is a truly shocking home truth that connects these brutal crimes. But what she will find is something more twisted than she could ever suspect…

Check the windows, lock the doors – this is a twisted page-turner that will prey on your darkest fears, in the way only M.J. Arlidge can.

I’m over the moon to be sharing my review for Cat and Mouse by M. J. Arlidge as part of the blog tour today. It’s an absolute cracker of a book.

Cat and Mouse is the 11th book in the DI Helen Grace series by the fantastic M. J. Arlidge and having read every book I genuinely get so excited for the next release. Each book could easily be read as a stand alone but this series is epic so I highly recommend starting at the beginning, you won’t be disappointed.

This book opens with a bang, it’s a chilling beginning that sets the pace for the whole book and with its short chapters and gripping story line it’s a book that’s easy to completely lose track of time with.

I loved being back with Helen and her team, over the course of the series I’ve really grown quite attached to some of the characters. I say some because there’s one particular character that always gets my heckles up, Emilia Garanita. If you’ve read any of this series before you’ll have come across the despicable journalist, Helen’s nemesis but the books just wouldn’t be the same without her.

Cat and Mouse could possibly be one of my favourite books of this series, every book Helen is challenged but this one I genuinely felt scared for her. I wasn’t sure how she would overcome the obstacles that seemed to constantly be put in her way. She’s a blooming strong, feisty risk taking character though .

This is a tense story with so many twists and turns and I always pick up these books thinking I’m going to guess what’s going to happen, who the culprit is and I’m always shocked. I don’t even know why I try and figure things out because M. J. Arlidge always surprises me.

I always feel quite bereft when I finish a book in this series, it feels like such a long time until the next one comes out but when it does it’s always worth the wait and it’s like being back with old friends.

So if you love a fast paced story that gives you chills, has you on the edge of your seat then I highly recommend you check out Cat and Mouse, better still go grab the series.
