Eeny Meeny is the rocket-paced serial-killer thriller debut from M. J. Arlidge.
The girl emerged from the woods. Traumatised and emaciated; close to death, but alive. Her story seemed too terrible to be true. But it was. Every dreadful word of it.
When, days later, another desperate survivor is found, a pattern becomes clear. Pairs of victims are being abducted, imprisoned then forced to make a terrible choice. Which would you sacrifice – your life or your conscience?
Thanks to Netgalley and the publishers for the review copy of this book.
We follow the hunt for a killer, who is rather cleverly getting his victims to kill themselves. The victims are trapped in an enclosed space. One will be released if they follow orders. They are left with a gun to choose who lives and who dies. The officer in charge of the investigation is Helen Grace, a rather complicated individual with a dark past.
The premise to this read is strangely familiar. I was sure I had seen it somewhere. I’ve been racking my brains and I cannot think where. I still thought it was ever so well done!!!
It is a very accessible dark crime read, with some fun twists and turns. I enjoyed it and was particularly fond of Helen!
