Title: Poop Goes The Weasel
Author: M.J. Arlidge
Stars: 5 out of 5
If you are a fan of nitty gritty British Police murder mysteries that do not pull
any punches this is the book for you. The maincharacter Detective Inspector
(DI) Helen Grace is hard as nails and takes no prisoners in her pursuit of the guilty.
That said she has some skeletons in her own closet that she would not like to see the
light of day. A thoroughly riveting must read for any British mystery aficionado. This story revolves around a serial killer in Southampton England and is told in short paragraphs that details what each character is doing at that moment in the story. I would expect this character to be turned into an exceptional
television series as only the British can do so well. I rated this book five stars. It is also a page turner, as I have said once before in a prior review, one you just don't want to put down even though you should do something else like turn the light off and go to sleep. I received this book as an ARC from Netgalley for my unbiased review. Thanks Frank for this review.
DI Helen Grace returns in Pop Goes the Weasel, the electrifying new thriller from
M. J. Arlidge. The body of a middle-aged man is discovered in Southampton's red-light district - horrifically mutilated, with his heart removed. Hours later - and barely cold - the heart arrives with his wife and children by courier. A pattern emerges when another male victim is found dead and eviscerated,
his heart delivered soon afterwards. The media call it Jack the Ripper in reverse; revenge against the men who lead sordid double lives visiting prostitutes. For Grace, only one thing is certain: there's a vicious serial-killer at large who must be halted at all costs
