    1. This is the 7th book in this series, but can easily be read as a stand-alone as there is plenty of back story about the previous book to explain certain things in this one.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 b [...]

    2. 5 starsA young girl, just in her mid-teens has been murdered. Her body was found in the trunk of a car – a week later by three teenage boys. DI Tom Calladine and DS Ruth Bayliss are on the case. Her name is established quickly, she is Flora Appleton. At the same time, a woman shows up at the station carrying a pot and a pink blanket. She found it behind a chimney while remodeling her house. She shows it to Tom and lo and behold, it rings a loud bell. It looks to be the remains of Jessica Wilki [...]

    3. My rating 5 out of 5 starsHelen Durrant is a fabulous author and I loved this book from the very first page. Forensic pathology is a particular interest of mine so this was an extra bonus. While it is part of a series it does work very well as stand alone. The book does refer to events from the previous book but Helen has, excellently, managed to bring a new reader up to date while at the same time ensuring readers of the previous books are not bored with recaps from previous books.There are sev [...]

    4. Dead Jealous is the 7th book in the D.I. Calladine & D. S. Bayliss series.It opens with the discovery of a teenage girls body in the boot of a car. Alongside this investigation is a old case which is brought back following the discovery of an urn and baby blanket bricked up in the chimney of a house undergoing renovation. This is 17 year old child abduction case Tom Calladine had been unable to solve.The more leads the team discover the more it appears the two cases have something or someone [...]

    5. I received an ARC of this book in return for an honest review. DI Tom Calladine has been called to the discovery of a body in the boot of a car - she's been there for about a week and was murdered. What motive could there be for the killing of a teenage girl? A woman comes to the police station and hands Tom some items she has discovered while renovating her new houses and they are linked to the case of a missing child from at least 15 years earlier - a case that was never solved and that Tom ne [...]

    6. A girl’s body is found in the boot of car. No one in the local area appears to know anything, or at least are being cagey about their answers to the police questions. A loan shark runs the local neighbourhood. Years beforehand a young girl went missing and was never found. When articles relating to her are discovered by accident the case re surfaces. A well written book with enough punch to keep the reader interested. Some background to characters and a little of their life story always makes [...]

    7. I love, love, LOVED this! Helen Durrant is always brilliant and never disappoints. "Dead Jealous" weaves multiple different cases together until its heart wrenching conclusion. So many twists and turns along the way, you'll be guessing right until the very end.

    8. Two murders, seventeen years apart. Detective Tom Callandine was part of the investigation team of the first murder and it has always haunted him. Can he finally solve it and is it linked to the latest one? This is the seventh book in the series which can be read as a standalone, but it does help to know already the history of him and his team. This was a gripping thriller, plenty of twists and turns. Another great read from Helen Durrant and I can't wait for the next book in the series. I would [...]

    9. A thrilling, gripping, page turner of a book! I jumped right into this series on book 7, didn't feel like I'd missed much background info with the characters. It kept me hooked and entertained the whole way through, would definitely recommend this book to my thriller loving friends.

    10. Thank you Net Galley. The book is an excellent read. Gripping, with well fleshed out and complex characters Waiting eagerly for the next one!

    11. Thoroughly impressive writing! I was totally gripped from the start. This followed on well from the previous title, and kept me gripped throughout, although since there were 3 crimes to solve, and so much going on, that isn't a surprise!

    12. I didn't immediately start reading this book in fact I think I started it and then came across other books and read them first. I clearly didn't follow my one golden rule, which is, to read at least 3 chapters before making my mind up on a book. Now I wish I had read it much sooner as this book was complex and puzzling, enough so that I was trying to unwind the different strands of the plot while I was washing up but not that much that my brain hurt.About the plot, A toddler vanishes from her pu [...]
