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.
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.
