This is a shout out to all the wonderful bloggers who helped with the Blog Tour.


What the bloggers are saying:

Ali the Dragon Slayer

Dead Jealous is a fabulous story of fitting the jigsaw pieces together .. plenty of twists and turns, lots of secrets, false alibi’s are incredibly likely, people are loyal sometimes for the wrong reasons.

It’s gruesome in places but the balance of murder investigation and the personal life of Tom and Ruth along with other colleagues keeps the pages turning.

Orchard Book Club

This book jumps right into the nitty gritty, which I love, the author has a way of setting the scene that has you turning page after page. I enjoyed how she didn’t focus on just one crime within the book but jumped between them, always on my toes but never actually guessing who the villain was (hats off to you on that Helen) I loved all the characters, good and bad, my favourite having being Dolly, not sure why but she just struck a chord with me.

Mark my Words

The plot flowed well, and the cases being investigated by Calladine and Bayliss held my interest, bringing together an excellent cast of characters. A cold case involving the disappearance of a two-year-old girl, the murder of a 16 year old girl, and a housing estate being terrorised by a violent moneylender, kept the police busy and me turning the pages.

Book Snail Reads

I love, love, loved this book! I haven’t read any of Helen’s previous books, but I felt like I was stepping into a world that was both familiar and exciting… as much as murder, missing children and angry loan sharks can feel ‘familiar’. The crimes were believable and the setting gritty. It was exactly what you might expect during a real-life police investigation.

Donna’s Book Blog

I have to admit that I was very keen to be able to get my hands on a copy of Helen’s latest book having becoming an avid fan of her work.  I thoroughly enjoyed the story and definitely would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone who loves a great crime book, and a really good read in general.

Nicki`s Life of Crime

I really enjoyed this gripping,twist packed mystery.It made a refreshing change to read about a police team who were friends as well as colleagues and worked well together as a team.I loved the closeness and banter between Tom Calladine and Ruth Bayliss,they obviously were very close and cared deeply about each other.It was lovely to read a book in which the police investigations weren’t bogged down by interdepartmental back stabbing and point scoring.

Sweet Little Book

I couldn’t believe how well Helen intertwined each scenario, it was effortless and gelled well together, thoroughly enjoyed trying to unravel the twists, the lies and connecting the dots with Calladine and Bayliss to try and discover the truth.


This is another cracking series to feature Dead in the titles and another one that I follow closely, and once again Helen Durrant proves why I am always so keen to read the next one.

Books n All

A fresh pair of eyes and a different perspective added to advances in forensics brings to light evidence and possibilities that were overlooked 17 years ago with shocking results.  There are many twists and turns along the way as the team untangles a web of lies going back many years.  The conclusion is a real shocker that the reader cant see coming.
