I am enthralled with the Helen Grace series. Nail biting to the max. The strong performance of Elizabeth Bower makes all the difference. She could read the phone book to me and I would be entranced!

What did you love best about Hide and Seek?
This was not as enjoyable as Little Boy Blue. Something is lost when Helen is not interacting with her co-workers regularly. It makes for a monotone read.
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
I think the most interesting thing is that Aldridge has managed to stretch this character for 6 fairly enjoyable books. I think characters have to be REALLY interesting to sustain a series. Helen's personal baggage is starting to really get old, however, and I may not continue the series after this.
Which character – as performed by Elizabeth Bower – was your favorite?
I really like Charlie but, as most of the leads in these books are female, after a while they all started to sound the same.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Not particularly. I think they've become formulaic. They're still good but not as good as some other police procedurals.
Any additional comments?

Having read all of this series this one was a bit far fetched and the storyline much more predictable than its predecessors. I will still purchase the next one though and look forward to a return to the usual excellent storylines and fuller characters.

... not as good as the previous 5. It finished the story off nicely, but equally, not the best. However, in saying that, I still enjoyed it and I love the style of writing. It's certainly another enjoyable book my Arlidge. The narration is excellent!

I did as another reviewer suggested and was able to listen to Part 1 and Part 2 straight after each other. The story was good and there are some seemingly impossible happenings in the prison but it is fiction !
