COOKHAM BOOK CLUB
The Cookham Book Club was started in 2015, we only have a few members, but we are keen to allow others to join. We meet every month (not August) at 20:00).
The book for this month is Hide and Seek (DCI Helen Grace), by M.J. Arlidge
After leaving readers hanging at the end of the previous novel, Arlidge offers some answers in his latest thriller. Set weeks after the events of Little Boy Blue, Helen Grace must acclimate to life behind bars in Holloway Prison, the same institution in which her sister spent years for murder. Grace professes her innocence to anyone who will listen, though the evidence is strong to convict her as a serial killer. During a routine bed-check, Grace's cell neighbour is found dead.
Helen awaits trial in a crumbling women's prison in Southampton. She has a fight on to prove her innocence from inside her prison cell, but this soon turns out to be the least of her worries.
A serial killer is picking off fellow inmates, thriving in an environment where there is truly nowhere to run. Is it a criminal giving in to their dark urges or a member of the prison staff preying on the captive population?
Helen must work fast to reveal this devious killer, all the time wondering if she will be next on her list . . .
The next meeting will be on Thursday 14th September 2017 at the old Swan Uppers at 20:00
