  • 2007 - Heartsick
  • 2008 - Sweetheart
  • 2009 - Evil At Heart
  • 2011 - The Night Season
  • 2012 - Kill You Twice
  • 2013 - Let Me Go

To date, I've read most of the Gretchen and Archie novels and I've thoroughly enjoyed them! Let me give you a little more information about them to give you the rough ideas of the plot throughout Chelsea's series.

Archie Sheridan is a detective in the US town of Portland. Unfortunately, through a fairly routine police call, Archie got called and trapped into the hands of a gorgeous yet scary serial killer called Gretchen Lowell. Through a series of tortures and physical excruciating pain to the popular cop Sheridan, near to the point of death, the deadly Lowell decides to let Archie go. For the remainder of his time, the scars that cover his body are a constant reminder of the pain and experience Archie had at the hands of the 'Beauty Killer'.

Due to the nature of his capture and the fact that he was returned back into society - this makes Detective Archie Sheridan's life pretty tough! He struggles to cope on a daily basis with the hurt and pain that he went through. His obsession with the deadly Gretchen plays a constant reminder and massively impacts his life from now on.

But with Gretchen still out there - teasing Archie and enticing him to come back and get her - will Archie ever be able to snap out of his physical hurt? Will he ever get this closure and resume his normal life again? Or will Gretchen continue to be the constant thorn in his side for the rest of his life?

Either way, theses novels play out a very 'cat and mouse' like style of enticing and chasing. In fact, it's brilliant! With the extra added bonus of relationships, lust, (some quite graphic) sexual and violent scenes - Chelsea Cain's novels seem to have a bit of everything!

This was the first Chelsea Cain novel that I ever read - in fact, the first type of Thriller book like this.

I say this in italics is because it's just so different to anything I've ever seen before. And it's great!
