Publisher's Summary

A desperate young woman runs through the storm. She hares up the path, hammering desperately on the front door, crying for help. The startled owner opens the door, ushers her inside, promising her whatever assistance she needs. This fateful decision will be his last. He should never have opened the door....
A middle aged couple are found brutally murdered in their ransacked suburban house. Helen Grace, now back at Southampton Central following her release from prison, is first on the scene. The crime is baffling, hideous, cruel, but before Helen can process the evidence, another double murder is reported - identical in almost every way to the first. What follows is the darkest, most dangerous night of Helen's life as a sequence of brutal home invasions takes place. By sunrise eight people will be dead and Helen may well be the ninth as she finds herself locked on a collision course with a pair of rampaging spree killers. Is there method in their madness? Or are they selecting their victims at random? It falls to Helen to wrestle with these questions - only by answering them can she end the bloodshed.
A breakneck thriller which takes place in real time over 24 hours, this is the sharpest, most adrenaline-filled Helen Grace thriller yet.

I was extremely disappointed with this book, I have been a Helen Grace fan since Eeny Meeny but apparently, Helen has lost all interest in life and this book sums up that lack of zest nicely, it is nothing more than a race against time to catch a teenager who has had a horrible life. (This teenager is pretty smart though, outwitting the Police rather easily).

Now I do believe that new readers (listeners) may well enjoy this story, it is reasonably well narrated although a little dreary overall (that is my own personal taste and others may disagree), but I would be surprised if any Helen Grace fans would actually enjoy this book, it is just NOT Helen Grace, it's a pale, uninteresting and extremely annoying version of her.

I would like to see the real Helen Grace resurrected at some point but it seems that maybe the author has lost interest in her.

I've read all of the Di Helen Grace books and enjoyed them all and looked forward to this one being released
Unfortunately I found the story weak and the idea of the timeline reduced its credibility.
Maybe this was just a blip and the next book will be back on track.
