Publisher's Summary

Meet Detective Maddie Ives in this absolutely gripping, race-against-time series opener from best-selling author Charlie Gallagher.  

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 return 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 15 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.

slow start

but, once the narrator stops putting emphasis on unlikely words and syllables, the plot becomes fast paced and she (narrator) improves greatly.

Not bad but the reader spoilt it for me

Too much unnecessary detail in the action. The reader made it hard work to listen to.
Good story but not very well constructed.

Gritty Thriller

Meet detective Sergeant Maddie Ives. She is tenacious and tough. She spent many years as a under cover of after something goes wrong she is shipped off to another force and her new role seems too menial to her and one case is handed to her and she wants to follow it through but her new boss wants to keep her contained.

She ends up following a lead with Di Harry Blaker from major crimes and little does she know her missing person, a hit and run are connected.

So with a lot of pushing Maddie continues on the path of following her lead. Harry and Maddie are hot on the tails of the hit and run/murderer, I found it hard trying to eek out the story because I wanted to savour it, Thrilling climax

Great story

Griping story, finished the book in no time.
Only issue, The reader needs to give each character their own voice as it read hard to distinguish which character was speaking at times.

Excited to have found a new author

I downloaded this, not knowing what to expect, as I’d never heard of the author before. I was gripped from the start and throughout. I really enjoyed the main characters and their unusual connection. Highly recommend, I will be downloading the next instalment 💯
