THE EIGHT DI HELEN GRACE THRILLER BY BESTSELLING AUTHOR M. J. ARLIDGEThere is a sickness in the forest. First, it was the wild horses.

Down to the Woods Reviews

    The link from NetGalley to GoodReads and Facebook are not working so I'm submitting my reviews manually until it's fixed.

    I was delighted at the opportunity to read this novel as I’ve followed the series all the way through. It was good to catch up with DI Helen Grace, her side-kick, Charlie and the irrepressible Emilia, the journalist. This book introduces the handsome DS Joseph Hudson to the team. Helen Grace is damaged by childhood experiences, conscience over past cases and she has extraordin

    Down to the Woods is the latest book in the wonderful Helen Grace series and whilst it could be read as a standalone, personally I think you need to read all the books in order to get a better understanding of who Helen Grace is and the rest of the team.

    This book felt very different to the previous 7 in the series, the pace was much slower, the plot-line less frantic and the overall feel was of a slow burner rather than a gripping page-turner. This doesn’t mean I didn’t enjoy it though, it means

    WHOOP WHOOP for fans of Helen Grace, no review is necessary as you know they’re going to be cracking and this one is no different. As an avid fan of the DI Helen Grace series, I was delighted to get a chance to read DOWN TO THE WOODS in advance given I’m not a very patient person!!

    In the 8th instalment, you would question, will I ever go camping again when Helen, Charlie and the team including new DS Joseph Hudson are called to the New Forest when a body is found hanging from a tree in a particu

    Negen maanden nadat Sanderson omgekomen is door het toedoen van een seriemoordenaar loopt er alweer één rond in Southampton. Het is daar nogal onveilig!

    Deze keer vermijdt men best het bos. Want er worden paarden afgeslacht en mensen op een vreselijke manier vermoord.

    Helen Grace en haar team hebben een moeilijke opdracht deze keer. 522 pagina’s telt het boek maar ondanks de vele (dwaal)sporen in het onderzoek blijft het spannend tot op het eind.

    I really love the natural beauty of lush green forests and woodland, and just this summer spent time walking in the New Forest where ‘Down To The Woods’ is located, but the thought of being lost deep in the forest with a serial killer on the loose, hunting his prey to their deaths gives me the chills!

    A young woman staying in a tent on a camp site in the New Forest awakes to find her boyfriend missing. His body is subsequently found deep in the forest hanging from a tree, but he’s also suffered d

    I'll be honest and say the last book I read in this series was the first one. Since then it seems that time has escaped me so despite muttering to myself about reading in order, when this arrived on my doorstep the cover just drew me right in..

    I'm going to have to get to the backlist because Down To The Woods was darkly entertaining, a classically good crime drama with an engaging and clever lead in Helen Grace. I devoured it, some of it, set in said Woods, actually freaked me out and the myster

    I cannot believe we've already reached book eight! It doesn't seem that long ago that I was embarking on this brilliant series.

    Melanie Walton and her boyfriend have gone camping in the New Forest. Even though she wasn't keen preferring to go somewhere warmer, Melanie relented and camping it was. All is well until the next morning when she wakes to find that Tom is missing. Cut to later and Tom's body is found hanging in the woods having been brutally murdered. Later another body is found in the

    Oh I love this series.

    Helen and Charlie are back with another gruesome case to work on and there’s a new member of the team, Hudson.

    The body of a man is found hanging from a tree in the New Forest and it looks like the killer has tried to make a point with the way the body is displayed.

    The bodies of dead ponies are then found shot by a crossbow and then another body is found.

    Helen and her team face a race against time to find the killer but they can’t work out if there is a connection betwee
