M.J. Arlidge: Down to the Woods



Readers talking Those who have yet to iscover this series ought to take this as a strong recommendation Do not let their length become a Game for Life deterrent as it is jam packed with highly entertaining thrills I have long been a fan of MJ Arlidge and his writing which has kept me up well into the night He never seems at a loss for twists in the stories or series to keep the reader captivated while pushing DI Helen Grace to her limits It is this unpredictability that keeps the stories from getting stale and allows the series to grow effectively Helen Grace has been through much in the series and this continues with this novel in which she finds herself at a crossroads seeking to better herself while also being highly introspective She has seen loss and chooses to steer clear of it though her current position makes that all but impossible With a strong crew around her as part of the MIT Grace and her cohort are always interacting on a professional level with bits of personal aside to keep the subplots moving together effectively The introduction of DI Joseph Hudson may prove to be an interesting new angle that series fans can chase as he brings something new and exciting to the game He along with the many of the other supporting characters prove effective in keeping the story intense and force the reader to wonder where things are headed This has always been a wonderful aspect to Arlidge s writing as the characters enrich the story in ways that might not have been predicted The story is great and as long as the reader is not seeking anything overlyeep is perfect to push through in a few sittings Arlidge uses an effective short chapter system that keeps the reader hanging and seeking a little which turns into late night reading binges The book has just what I am looking for and I cannot wait for the next instalment which is sure to have just as many enticementsKudos Mr Arlidge for another winner Series fans will surely not be მოთხრობები disappointed and I can only hope others will commence this series sooner than laterLikehate the review An ever growing collection of others appears at Book for All Seasons aifferent sort of Book Challenge I really love the natural beauty of lush green forests and woodland and just this summer spent time walking in the New Forest where Down To The Woods is located but the thought of being lost Flames of the Dark Crystal deep in the forest with a serial killer on the loose hunting his prey to theireaths gives me the chillsA young woman staying in a tent on a camp site in the New Forest awakes to find her boyfriend missing His body is subseuently found One Night at the Lake deep in the forest hanging from a tree but he s also sufferedevastating injuries prior to this Following on from this murder two of the beautiful New Forest ponies are found The Hero Next Door dead and the manner in which theyied appears to have the same MO as the young man s murder However the killer isn t finished yet and before long the body of a young woman is found in exactly the same way as the first Ask Me No Questions displayed hanging from a tree almost as if the killer is proud of his handiworkDI Helen Grace is SIO and together with her regular hard working andedicated team she also has the services of newly transferred DS Joe Hudson this is a guy who won t readily The Gnadiges Fraulein. disappear into the background he setermined to shine in his chosen career and in addition he finds himself attracted to his bossThe team certainly have their work cut out trying to find the perpetrator of these gruesome murders It s clear that the killer is at home in the forest he s cunning and appears to be an experienced hunter but Unscrewed don t jump to conclusions with this one as the author has made expert use of misdirection smoke and mirrors to lead usown the wrong path The characters are certainly plausible and help American Musicians drive the novel towards a heart pounding and satisfying conclusion This is one that I wouldefinitely recommend My thanks to Netgalley and Penguin UK Michael Joseph for my Arc I have given an honest unbiased review in exchang.
