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.

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.

Great characters , awesome narration. Give this a go!

First time trying this author and I’m quite impressed. If I had any negative it was that I felt the ending was a bit rushed . So I removed a star for that.
The characters are great and I’m looking forward to seeing how they evolve in the next books in series. I really love Antonia Beamish narration, I’ve listened to her narrate other books and think she really brings the characters to life.

Brilliant !

My word. This author is an absolute find.
My usual fare are thrillers for walking and housework then some chick lit for bedtime reading.
I really don’t know
What to say apart from. Simply, just try this author !
I do like the narration but it did take me a few chapters to settle in to it- but that’s likely my distracted kind at the beginning.
Throughly enjoyed it and I will be seeking out the next book.

A terrific start to my new favourite crime series!

Strong, funny protagonist in Maddie Ives and her grumpy foil in Harry the loner DI. A terrifying serial killer and a gripping hunt for him before he kills again. And in among it all the truth about caring for someone with dementia and recovering from alcohol addiction. It’s laugh out loud funny at times and at others it is deeply touching and heartbreakingly sad. I can’t recommend it highly enough. As a new series it takes a few chapters for the reader to ‘get into’ but soon I felt like I was sitting with old friends. I’m now off to listen to the next in the series! I already have the first three! Thank you Charlie!

Enthralling! Recommend.

The story was captivating from the first sentence, with the various characters meshing seamlessly into the storyline. The narrator did very well to individualise the characters. I listened to this on 2 days and am now a new fan of the author.
