Inhaltsangabe zu „Eeny Meeny“ von 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.

    This is the first volume in a new crime series. Helen Grace is a tough british cop with a dark history, carrying around her own personal demons, but this case is pushing even her to the limit. The killer uses an especially cruel and twisted MO, imprisoning two people without food, but with a one-bullet gun, offering one of them a way out by shooting the other. As more and more victims show up, the whole police unit is on the search, even within their own rows. The presented killer's method was not new, but fascinating nonetheless. The flaws and personal problems of Helen Grace and her team give the characters depth and reality, however some parts seemed too stagy for my taste. While I liked the short chapters, their meaning was rendered obsolete by the many jumps between POVs, switching characters and places too sudden. This was often confusing and while it may have been meant too support the fast pace of the story, instead it slowed it down on many occasions. 'Eeny Meeny' is a very twisted thriller which offers great suspense and introduces an interesting new cop character readers will surely want to read more about. (I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review)
