Review: Little Boy Blue by M.J. Arlidge #littleboyblue #bookreview #bookblog

Amazon Blurb

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…

My Thoughts

Well, as usual, Mr Arlidge’s writing was very good. Another easy read due to it’s pace. I enjoyed the fact the DI Grace’s secret was exposed, I found it an interesting secret and I wanted to see other character reactions to to. There was something a bit off to me about this story, although I can’t put my finger on what it was exactly. I just didn’t find myself connecting with this one. Because of that, it was on three stars for most of the read, until I got the the end. That was a fantastic way to leave things, I think. I can’t remember the last time I read a book with that sort of ending. And for that, I gave another star. I’m now really looking forward to the next book in the series!!

I rated Little Boy Blue: 4/5 stars

Happy Reading

Avid reader and 'collector' of books. I'm a prison psychologist and criminologist, so no surprise when I admit I have a particular like in true crime and psychological/police procedure thrillers and suspense books.
