Arlidge writes such short, sharp punchy chapters (perfect for those who love James Patterson for the same reason) that you’ll finish the book before you know it. I loved this so much that I borrowed the second title – Pop goes the weasel – before I was even half way through this one! I wasn’t disappointed and have since read the third in the Helen Grace series – The Doll’s House. It’s great when you discover a new author!
