DO YOU LOVE GRIPPING CRIME FICTION? THEN DISCOVER ONE OF THE MOST AUTHENTIC AND EXCITING SERIES NOW. IT’S WRITTEN BY A SERVING POLICE DETECTIVE.
YOU GET THREE HEART-POUNDING THRILLERS IN THIS BOX SET
BOOK 1: BODILY HARM
An edge-of-your-seat crime thriller starts with a vicious stabbing of a pretty teenage girl and her boyfriend on a local bus. She happens to be the mayor’s niece. It’s the final straw for the local community. The police are desperate to get results and decide on a risky course of action involving undercover infiltration of the notorious Effingell Estate.
Detective George Elms knows this hellish place extremely well, and his sharp investigative mind is put to work to solve the crime. The police are under immense media pressure and conveniently a local lowlife confesses to the attack. But George is not convinced. There are many layers of criminal and police motivation, and few people are what they seem.
WHAT READERS ARE SAYING:
‘Action abounds on every page from start to finish. Secondary characters are well defined, fully fleshed. There are good guys and bad guys and then some very bad guys.’ Linda Strong Book Reviews

I will most certainly read the next in the series, or anything else written by Charlie Gallagher. He is a wonderful writer and a great new find. Joyce’s Reviews
BOOK 2: PANIC BUTTON
“A man is stood in front of me with a gun. He has a message for me and for us all. He says that he will come for us. He will come for all of us one by one. Until it is finished.”
Someone is killing the officers of the Langthorne Police one by one. And in a sadistic twist he makes each victim push their radio panic button before they die, thus broadcasting their last moments to the entire force.
And as the police face this ruthless adversary, Detective George Elms is in no fit state to help. What is the connection between ruthless former officer Ed Kavski and the wave of killings? And can their boss Helen Webb do anything to stop the carnage?
WHAT READERS ARE SAYING
The police are sure they have a viable suspect. They are so certain that they arrest him in the most vicious manner. But, what if he didn’t do it? Joyce’s Reviews
Excellent, could not put it down!!! And like the first book it’s left me wanting more – can’t wait for book 3…… Maggie’s Reviews
BOOK 3: BLOOD MONEY
What would you do to save your dying son? Imagine the doctors told you there was a cure, but only if you had the money. What would you do to get that money to save your son’s life?
Tony Robson faces this choice when he’s told he needs £3000 per month to carry on the life-saving experimental treatment for his son’s rare disease.
So Tony gets in touch with the criminal element in town. And they have a well-paying job for him . . .
And that decision will blow up everything for the Langthorne Police.
If you like Angela Marsons, Rachel Abbott, Ian Rankin or Mark Billingham you will be gripped by this exciting new crime fiction writer.

Charlie Gallagher has been a serving UK police officer for ten years. During that time he has had many roles, starting as a front-line response officer, then a member of a specialist tactical team and is currently a detective investigating serious offences.
Langthorne, typical of many smaller seaside towns dotted around the UK’s coastline. Once a thriving tourist destination, where the affluent built grand seafront houses, it has suffered a hard fall from grace. Unemployment has blighted the area and so has crime.
George Elms joined the police pretty much straight out of school and now in his mid-thirties, he’s been getting in the faces of criminals for over fifteen years. Well known and respected on both sides of the line, he was responsible for running a team working the crimes that come out of one of the county’s most notorious housing estates. He is married to Sarah and they have a little girl.
