Blog Tour Book Review | He is Watching You by Charlie Gallagher

DISCOVER AN ABSOLUTELY GRIPPING RACE-AGAINST-TIME THRILLER FROM BEST-SELLING AUTHOR CHARLIE GALLAGHER.

MEET DETECTIVE MADDIE IVES IN THIS NEW SERIES THAT WILL HAVE YOU GRIPPED FROM THE EXPLOSIVE START TO ONE OF THE MOST SHOCKING ENDINGS OF THE YEAR.

A young woman’s body is left in a metal container in a remote location. The killer is careful to position her under a camera that links to his smartphone. He likes to look back at his work.

HE IS WATCHING HER.

BUT SHE ISN’T DEAD.

So he will go back to finish the job. He can barely contain his excitement at the thought of getting to do it all over again. But he must be careful. He cannot rush. Rushing makes you careless.

Detective Maddie Ives is new to the area. She is handed a missing person report:  a young woman with a drink problem who’s been reported missing fifteen times. It looks like a waste of time. But DS Ives has a bad feeling about the woman’s disappearance.

DI Harry Blaker is called to a hit and run of an elderly man left to die on a quiet country road. There is no motive and it looks like a tragic accident. But he’s been working Major Crime long enough to know that something isn’t quite right.

The two officers find their investigations intertwine and they will need to work together.

BUT THEY MUST WORK FAST. TIME IS RUNNING OUT FOR THE WOMAN IN THE CONTAINER.

And the killer has already identified his next target.

My Review

As always, Charlie Gallagher really delivers with He is Watching You.  After the brilliant finale for his Detective Elms series, I couldn’t wait to see what would come next.

Meeting Detectives Harry Blaker and Maddie Ives was nothing short of exceptional. 

He is Watching You really is a gripping thriller that you really must read from start to finish, and if you’re anything like me… then it won’t take you long.

Charlie is the kind of writer I never get bored of.

Blog Tour Review – Her Last Breath by Charlie Gallagher

Blog Tour Review – Her Last Breath by Charlie Gallagher

Today’s review is for Her Last Breath by Charlie Gallagher. The final instalment following Detective George Elms.

About Her Last Breath

George has been enlisted to talk to dying convicted murderer, Henry Roberts.

Roberts left a trail of devastation behind him. Not just with the victim’s families but also the small police force who had to pick up the pieces.

Now he’s dying, he wants something and in return he will, after 3 years, break his silence around the location of his still missing victims.

As two girls disappear who fit his type, the race is on to get to the truth.

As George joins forces with the police force left devasted by the original crimes, will George and Emma find out the truth? And will the victim’s families get their longed-for closure?

My Review

Her Last Breath is the second book I have read in the George Elms series and hit me much harder than Charlie’s previous book, Then She Ran.

In fact, it infiltrated my dreams. I can’t remember the exact nature of my dream now but I know George and co were there… I know I was facing Henry Roberts head on.  I even woke my husband and asked him not to do it.  Not that I know what ‘It’ was, now.

The story is gripping and kept me on my feet all the way to the end. I must admit, though, that I had forgotten George’s personal life story and, it looks like things are finally working out for him there.

I am a little bit gutted that Detective George Elms won’t be back, but I suppose even the greatest Detectives need to be shelved eventually and, often, it’s that one case that does it.

Her Last Breath is definitely one for fans of gritty police procedurals who can handle a little mild language.

Blog Tour Review – Then She Ran by Charlie Gallagher

Blog Tour Review – Then She Ran by Charlie Gallagher

Ahh, it’s been a while since my last book review, but today is my stop on the blog tour for the incredible new best seller, Then She Ran, by Charlie Gallagher. 

Then She Ran is the fifth in Charlie’s Langthorne Police Series following his other best sellers. 

Detective George Elms is back with a promotion and, like all good police detectives, a turbulent personal life.  But does the chaos in his life mean that his judgement is affected?

When Jenny Harris is shaken awake by her panic-stricken boyfriend, Joseph while their baby daughter sleeps on her chest, her life is changed forever.  After Joseph is brutally murdered in public, Jenny embarks on a mission… to simply survive.

While the task force investigates the circumstances surrounding Joseph’s murder, Detective Elms is investigating the murder of an elderly woman shot in the stomach during a botched burglary.

Is there a link between the two apparently unrelated murders?  If so, what?  Who really wants Jenny silenced so badly they won’t stop until she’s dead?

George has no choice but to investigate like he’s never investigated before, can he solve the case before Jenny’s time runs out?

I’ve had a Charlie Gallagher book on my Kindle for months but not actually gotten around to reading it. 

Was this a good introduction to Charlie and his books?

Heck yes it was!  Action packed and well written it was easy to get into the story. 
I love a protagonist that isn’t perfect.  I love knowing that even the damn good Detectives have shit in their lives that often overwhelms them.    

I am really looking forward to finding the time to read more of Charlie’s books. 

As always, here is the link to buy Then She Ran.
