Framed for a murder she didn’t commit...

As one of HM Prison Holloway’s most high-profile new inmates, Helen Grace has a target on her back and nowhere to hide. She has made a long list of enemies over the course of her career—some are incarcerated within these very walls. When one of Helen’s fellow prisoners is found mutilated and murdered in her own locked cell, it’s clear that the killer is someone on the inside.

But time is running out for Helen as she races to expose the person who framed her, and the body count in the prison starts to climb. Helen will need to draw on all her investigative skills and instincts to catch the serial killer behind these murders and discover the truth—unless the killer finds her first.


I really enjoy these books and the characters.  If you didn't read the book prior to this you will definitely find yourself lost when trying to read this one.  Helen was framed for murder and is now in prison awaiting trial.  Being a police officer in prison is not an easy road and Helen finds herself a target of inmates and guards alike.  Helen's partner Charlie has never given up on her and knows she has been framed and who did it, the struggle is to find him and prove it despite what her superiors want.

While in prison women start being murdered and Helen can't help her detective instincts and need to investigate and solve this crime.  Walking a thin line between inmate and detective Helen is desperate to find the killer before they can strike again.

This was definitely an interesting mystery and I followed Helen down the same paths of thought which was fun since I'm usually several steps ahead. Fast paced and a great addition to this fantastic series that just seems to get better.
