Pop Goes the Weasel: A Detective Helen Grace Thriller

M.J. Arlidge. NAL, $15 trade paper (416p) ISBN 978-0-451-47550-3
British author Arlidge’s exciting second crime thriller featuring Det. Insp. Helen Grace of the Southampton Central Police Station (after 2014’s Eeny Meeny) finds Helen struggling with the fallout from her previous case, in which a serial killer had a close connection to Helen and a police friend of hers sacrificed his life to save another officer. Now another serial killer is on the loose—a prostitute who targets married men on a Web forum called Bitchfest, seduces them, murders them, and cuts out their hearts. Once again, Helen is besieged by hostile newspaper reporter Emilia Garanita, who persists in exposing Helen’s secret personal life. To make matters worse, her new boss, Det. Supt. Ceri Harwood, appears intent on getting rid of Helen. Readers will root for this admirable if flawed heroine every step of the way. Agent: Hellie Ogden, Janklow Nesbit. (Oct.)
