HE WILL KILL YOU (Maddie Ives #2) by Charlie Gallagher
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.
Grace Hughes is effectively a prisoner in her own home. Tortured and controlled by her horrifically violent partner, she dreams of freedom, of safety — even happiness.
CAN MADDIE GET HER SAFE?
IF SHE DOESN’T, HE WILL KILL HER.
Detective Maddie Ives now works with a team specializing in getting abused women to safety. She tells Grace to keep a diary, to write everything down so it forms part of the compelling evidence needed to send her abuser to prison.
But Maddie also faces a car bomber who threatens to strike again. DI Harry Blaker returns from injury. Can he and Maddie stop the bomber, find a killer and get Grace safe — whether she helps herself or not?
GRACE’S TIME IS RUNNING OUT. SHE MUST RUN OR DIE.
HE WILL KILL YOU: The new unputdownable thriller from Charlie Gallagher. Maddie Ives’ toughest case yet.
Perfect for fans of Kimberley Chambers, Damien Boyd, Rachel Abbott, Patricia Gibney or Mark Billingham.
Grace's story is very hard to sit through.
Firstly, because of the horror that both you and she know is coming at the hands of Craig.
Secondly, and more importantly in my opinion. The help is so close. In the form of Maddie.
But Grace is so afraid to act.
This was the part of the book that kept pages turning.
There are three very distinct divisions within the storyline of this book.
2. Maddie ad the bomber.
3. The return of DI Blaker.
Having all of this going on in tandem makes for pretty confusing reading at times. Due to the fact that transitions between scenes are often not as smooth as they need to be when multiple storylines are involved.
The story as a whole is very well written.
The characters all well done and very relatable.
But reading He Will Kill You as a first foray into the series. It must be noted that this is a series that should not be read out of order.
As important background information about Maddie and her team that one would need to fully enjoy this book. Would be found in book one.
