I am very pleased it is my stop on the #blogtour for this awesome stand alone psychological thriller by Charlie Gallagher.
‘This is a fast paced gripping read I just kept turning page after page until I, unfortunately, reached THE END. There are sadistic, murderous drug lords, abductions and dodgy drugs all thrown in to create a twisty turny thriller with curve balls and shockers a many. A brilliant read I can’t wait to see what comes next.’

These two events will have consequences for everyone they touch. And Shaun Carter is forced to make heartbreaking choices as he faces a vicious criminal network.

If you like Angela Marsons, Rachel Abbott, Ian Rankin or Mark Billingham you will be gripped by this exciting new crime fiction writer.
Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
Wow I absolutely loved this book. I read End Game and thought that was really good although I felt a little disadvantaged by not having read the previous books in the series. This book works very well as stand-alone having read the Langthorne series would be a bonus as you have the history to George Elms but you can soon pick up due to the excellent way Charlie Gallagher has written this book.
What would you do to save your family? Shaun Carter is forced to find out when he turns out as negotiator to talk down a man threatening to jump off the viaduct. He soon learns that he has talked this man down before and that him being on call was no coincidence. What follows is a sequence of events that forces Shaun Carter into actions he wouldn’t normally consider in an attempt to get his Son and estranged Wife back unharmed.
George Elms is quietly minding his own business in a pokey back office with a coffee machine for company when he finds himself in the middle of the chaos that Shaun’s life has become. Can he save the day again?
You have to love George Elms he has his own way of getting results he is a compassionate man that has an inbuilt need to help people and in this book Shaun is the person on the receiving end of George’s help.
This is a fast paced gripping read I just kept turning page after page until I, unfortunately, reached THE END. There are sadistic, murderous drug lords, abductions and dodgy drugs all thrown in to create a twisty turny thriller with curve balls and shockers a many. A brilliant read I can’t wait to see what comes next.
Well worth the 5 stars I just wish I could give it more.
