Eeny Meeny by M.J. Arlidge
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
The girl emerged from the woods, barely alive. Her story was beyond belief. But it was true. Every dreadful word of it.
later, another desperate escapee is found - and a pattern is emerging.
Pairs of victims are being abducted, imprisoned then faced with a
terrible choice: kill or be killed.
Inspector Helen Grace has faced down her own demons on her rise to the
top. As she leads the investigation to hunt down this unseen monster,
she learns that it may be the survivors - living calling cards - who
hold the key to the case.
And unless she succeeds, more innocents will die
I've read a couple of later books in this series so it was good to see how it started. It's a gritty thriller, not for the faint hearted. The premise (2 captives being given the choice of who lives and who dies) is not new but it's done well and I didn't want to put the book down to see how it ended.
