Available from AMAZON
DISCOVER AN ABSOLUTELY GRIPPING RACE-AGAINST-TIME THRILLER FROM BEST-SELLING AUTHOR CHARLIE GALLAGHER.
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.
HE IS WATCHING YOU: The new race against time thriller from Charlie Gallagher.
Hello Maddie Ives – kicked out of a job she loves and transferred to the back of beyond. She doesn’t want to be there and they certainly don’t want a loose cannon in their midst. Harry, however, can see something others can’t in the feisty female and sticks his neck out to stop her packing up and leaving.
The story itself takes over the book rather than the characters it is unusual, fast-paced and I was turning pages unable to put it down. It was engrossing to watch the character of Maddie evolve to become part of a partnership that I am sure will continue for many books to come.
A totally different kettle of fish to the George books so there is no mileage in comparing the two. Maddie and Harry grow on you so keep an open mind and the story takes hold of you and transports you to a world of crime and policework never seen before in a book.
Well done Charlie – another winner I am sure so hurry up with book 2
What the bloggers thought:
Ginger Book Geek
‘He Is Watching You’ is superbly written. Charlie entices you in to the story and before you know it you just can’t escape his clutches. The story is written from three different perspectives- that of Harry, that of Maddie and that of the killer himself. Read more here

Linda Strong Book Reviews
This is an action-packed page-turner. What the killer does to the woman in the container had my hair standing on end … I expect nightmares when I turn off the lights tonight. Nevertheless, I will be watching for more of Ives and Baker. Read more here

By the Letter Book Reviews
The story grabs the readers attention from the start. The killer is definitely sick and twisted and there seems to be no bound to how low they will stoop. I loved the build up to the killer being identified and as with any good crime thriller, it becomes a race against time, sending the pace of the story to full throttle. Read more here
