Book Review: Pop Goes the Weasel by M. J. Arlidge

Disclosure / Disclaimer: I received this ebook,, free of charge,from the Penguin Group, via Netgalley, for review purposes on this blog. No other compensation, monetary or in kind, has been received or implied for this post. Nor was I told how to post about it

Continuing our books perfect for Ghoulish reading....

From the international bestselling author of Eeny Meeny comes the second thriller in the “truly excellent series”* featuring Detective Helen Grace.


A man's body is found in an empty house. 

A gruesome memento of his murder is sent to his wife and children.

He is the first victim, and Detective Helen Grace knows he will not be the last. But why would a happily married man be this far from home in the dead of night?

The media call it Jack the Ripper in reverse: a serial killer preying on family men who lead hidden double lives.

Helen can sense the fury behind the murders. But what she cannot possibly predict is how volatile this killer is—or what is waiting for her at the end of the chase....


Helen Grace is another great female lead character! She is tough, compassionate, and able to do her job and best the guys. This second book in the series is no sophomore slump- it is a riveting read that you just can NOT put down! I raced through the book, with no idea of the true killer until the very end. The author does a great job in giving you red herrings, present so well, you don't realize they aren't primary clues. The ending contains a couple of surprises that will leave happy, no matter if you missed the clues! I can't wait for the next book in the series (coming out in February- The Doll's House)! Don't miss this one if you love police procedurals with some bite!
