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.

Who writes the descriptions?

Would you try another book from M. J. Arlidge and/or Elizabeth Bower?

Yes

If you’ve listened to books by M. J. Arlidge before, how does this one compare?

I didn't enjoy it as much. I was very much looking forward to it, but was disappointed.

Was Love Me Not worth the listening time?

I wouldn't go as far as saying that.

Any additional comments?

The scenes in the description of the audiobook never occurred, ever. Also, there were too many implausible moments that occurred because characters just weren't answering their phones. It was getting silly.

Preposterous!

No spoilers but the detective, who has recently been released from prison after being acquitted for killing 3 people, is now in charge of her former unit that was primarily responsible for her arrest and conviction (must have been a previous book) (no hard feelings, huh?). I know that fiction requires suspension of disbelief, but the only disbelief I have about this detective story is the number of "fives" other readers rated it. Finally, is this Detective Grace any relation to Roy Grace in the Peter James series?

Really Gripping!

I read most of this in one day. The story was really good and kept me wondering.
No real twists or anything like that just a really exciting crime book.
Glad that Helen Grace is back!!!

excellent as usual

MJ Arlidge has a wonderful way with words and the narrator captures the tone perfectly Helen Grace is a greatly troubled character but one is strangely drawn to her. More please!!!!

Most Disappointing

If ever it was time to kill off DI Helen Grace, this is the book.
Time she left the scene altogether.
Her skill as a DI is driven by her narsasitic, screwed up view of the world and herself within this world. Her so called interest in her newphew - drove him over the edge - time for her to be put to death, end the series with an appropriate end.
