Ich finde, dass das ganze schneller abgehalten hätte werden können. Die Geschichte wurde recht in die Länge gezogen. Die Handlung fand ich auch nicht sehr mitreißend.

If you haven’t read Little Boy Blue then don’t even attempt to read this book, you need the build up to set the stage. Framed by her nephew, double-crossed by her own boss and abandoned by her team, Helen is incarcerated in prison and counting off the days until her trial. As she makes hatch marks on her wall she also dodges daily abuse from guards, killers, drug addicts, gangs, and women she herself has put in prison. Then a woman is found dead in her cell, her body mutilated.
The prisoners grow fearful and are on high alert and edgy. Unable to restrain her natural instincts as a DI, Helen works to find the killer before they strike again but it’s not easy following clues when incarcerated. Meanwhile, her one true friend and colleague, Charlie, is trying to track down Helen’s nephew to prove her innocence. It’s also not easy to follow clues as her new inspector has insisted the case is closed and Charlie’s actions threaten her job.
The story shows a different side of Helen: vulnerable, powerless, and completely at the mercy of her fellow inmates and guards. It’s hard to watch the once proud DI forced to put up with the physical and verbal assaults. She knows if she steps out of line, it will put her in more jeopardy and can be used against her at her trial. It is only her friendships with a prostitute, a drug addict and a geriatric lifer that help her get through each day; quite a difference for the hard-nosed police detective.
Now, my quibbles. How could a prison not have a security cam system? Ironically, Charlie is relying on store security cams and London’s CCTV to track Helen’s nephew. But whoever is killing the inmates is benefitting from this absence. I don’t know the English corrections system but the prisoners sure have a lot of freedom wandering about the building unchecked. They also have access to boiling water. And there is very little discipline amongst the guards, especially when one of them not only tells the investigating officer to eff off but he also tells the prison’s governor what to do with herself.
Like I said, I enjoyed this book. It’s different, it shows another side of Helen, the killer is a surprise, Charlie is awesome, and the pace is rapid fire the last half of the book. Also, there are more than a few comeuppances at the end. I cannot wait to see how affected by this experience Helen might be in the next book; hopefully this will add another facet to the already complex Detective Inspector.
Framed for murders she did not commit, Helen is cast into maximum security in a hellhole where other prisoners are not so keen on having a police officer in their midst -- especially when she was the one responsible for putting some of them there! She's barely getting by since she has no protection, and when one of the other prisoners on her cell block is killed in a particularly gruesome way -- Helen is the first one they suspect. On the outside, her friend and fellow officer, Charlie Brooks, is searching for the man who really committed the crimes but he is in the wind. Without any support, Helen is on her own. Who is killing the women in Holloway?
I love Helen Grace. Sure, she's a mess in a way, but she is a strong, complex character and a very interesting protagonist. Lots of red herrings and an interesting setting makes this book one that you will want to read in one sitting.
Thank you to Penguin Random House First to Read for a copy of this ARC to review.
A Warning, don't read this review if you don't want to know the ending of the last book!
Helen Grace is in prison, framed for murders she didn't commit and now she has to find a way to prove that she is innocent. Thankfully outside if prison is her fellow colleague and friend Charlie on the hunt for the real killer. However, Grace has a bigger problem at the moment, there is a killer in prison. Well, it's a prison so there are probably quite a lot of killers. However, this one is killing fellow inmates...
This book, just like the previous books thrilling from the beginning until the end. I love the short chapters that make me just wanna listen to one more chapter and suddenly you're halfway through the book. I found both storylines intriguing. Charlie has to find the real killer and at the same time trying to convince her new boss Sanderson that Grace is innocent. And, Grace has to try to figure out who the killer is that is roaming the prison. Is it a fellow inmate or guard?
Hide and Seek is a great book. I was surprised over the identity of the killer and it's nice to not see the ending coming now and then...
