Liar Liar (Helen Grace #4) by M.J. Arlidge

Liar Liar

Detective Helen Grace has never seen such destruction. Six fires in twenty-four hours. Two people dead. Several more injured. It’s as if someone wants to burn the city to the ground…

With the whole town on high alert, Helen and her team must sift through the rubble to find the arsonist, someone whose thirst for fire—and control—is reducing entire lives to ashes.

One misstep could mean Helen’s career—and more lives lost. And as the pressure mounts and more buildings burn, Helen’s own dark impulses threaten to consume her…

I don’t think I have ever read a book where fires were the main focus point and the cause of death in so many cases. It was a bit terrifying since I have a fear of fires and my house burning down! I was getting a bit emotional reading about the families being trapped in their burning homes.

Since this is the 4th novel in the series, I was pretty familiar with the characters and the structure of the novel. I’m torn on the ending though. I liked how the fire starter was revealed and the reasons behind why they did it. However, I wasn’t too satisfied with the final ending. Of course, it’s hard to say why I didn’t like it without spoiling anything!

3 calculators out of a potential 5. I’m really enjoying this series and I’m going with the lower rating just because this novel wasn’t as good as the previous novels. It was a still a great mystery!

  1. You caught up and passed me in this series. I have that one on my dining room table to read. Sounds like it is not the best in the series, but I know this is a good one, so will keep going. Nice, honest review Amanda.
