Early one Sunday morning, a ten year old boy walks out in front of traffic. He is dazed, confused and has bare feet. He is covered in blood that's not his own. When Maddie Ives arrives to investigate, the boy can't or won't talk. The boy is scared stiff. Then a man is found brutally murdered. Detectives Maddie Ives and Harry Blaker need to find the answers, quickly.

I love this series. They are well written and gripping storylines. Ives and Blaker have their work cut out trying to solve this

This is the third in the DS Maddie Ives and DI Harry Blaker series and having read the previous two I enjoyed reading about these two characters again. However, the book can easily be read as a stand-alone. Harry is irascible, gruff but honourable and likeable. He and his daughters are still grieving following the death of Harry’s wife several years previously in a car accident. They have a hard time with coming to terms with the early release of the perpetrator that caused her death and this ...more

A young boy walks out into the traffic. He is dazed, barefooted, and covered in blood. Detective Maddie Ives is called and when on scene, the young boy either cannot or will not speak.

A man is found brutally murdered, dragged to his death behind a truck.

There is a cult of sorts behind this murder. There are 'tasks' to be done in order to reach a new plateau, a richness of life, permission to do evil. The task is to take someone's life ... if it isn't done, the newest member will become the task.

He Will Find You by Charlie Gallagher is the third book in the DS Maddie Ives and DI Harry Blaker series and it was another brilliant book.

This book starts with a young boy walks out into the traffic. He is dazed, barefooted, and covered in blood.
Detective Maddie Ives is called to the scene, the young boy either cannot or will not speak.

Why is he covered in Blood? Its not his!!! Who's blood is it?

Why is he not speaking?? Can he speak?

This author is one of my favourite writers, these stories are so clever the way he ties everything together at the end. They maybe gritty crime but very well written. I can never guess what is going to happen. The two main characters Maddie and Charlie are just great detectives and roll off each other making you like them. Another great book from Charlie Gallagher.

This is the third in the Maddie Ives series of detective books and it can be read as a stand alone but, as with most series, the reader will get more out of it if they have read the previous two books first. It begins with a young boy who is wandering in traffic, covered in blood and unable (or unwilling) to talk to anyone. His shock is graphically described and I was instantly drawn into the story. Then a body of a man is found on a country road, a man who has been dragged behind a vehicle ...more

4.5 stars. This is the third Maddie Ives book and it was pretty damn good, the best yet. It is a police procedural but with a novel plot (ha ha pun intended), cracking pace and taut suspense. I loved it and hope there is more of Maddie to come.

This is the third book in the series featuring DS Maddie Ives and DI Harry Blaker based in Canterbury. DS Maddie Ives had been working undercover in Manchester for years until disobeying orders meant that she had to move right across the country to a Major Crimes posting in Langhorne in the south east. Then a nasty shoot out injured her boss DI Harry Blaker and put him out of action for months and her back to CID, and once reunited they worked another particularly nasty case together.

One early Sunday morning, Diane Cummings is on her way to work when she sees a young boy covered in blood, she stops him and the case begins for Maddie Ives and Harry Blaker. He is scared, won't speak and covered in blood, the questions begin. Then man is found murdered. This is the 3rd in the Maddie Ives series that gets better as it goes on!
This story is, to be honest, a brutal and horrific one, but it just adds to the realism of todays policing and the world we live in. I love Charlie's

I didn't realise that 'He Will Find you' by Charlie Gallagher is the third book in a series, not that it mattered. This book is perfectly fine to read as a standalone. This was an excellent thriller and had me turning the pages from start to finish. I am not going to write what the story is about as i prefer one to read the book for themselves, but i do recommend.

My thanks to Netgalley and the Publishers for my copy.

HE WILL FIND YOU



OUTSTANDING!STUNNING!THRILLING!

HE WILL FIND YOU Immediately shocks you with a suspicious chilling mystery. Horrific, brutal, heart racing violence. A mind boggling labyrinth. Could this possibly get any worse? OH YES!
A divisive, confusing, heart stopping race against time. Still it isn't over yet. Harrowing suspense and split second timing. Will it be enough?
Nobody writes Police Officers the way Charlie Gallagher does. They're real. They're vulnerable. They're human. They're

I would like to thank Netgalley and Joffe Books for an advance copy of He Will FindYou, the third novel to feature Canterbury based DS Maddie Ives and DI Harry Blaker.

A barefoot, blood soaked young boy is found wandering the streets of Canterbury so DS Maddie Ives is called to investigate. The boy isn’t talking so the police are on their own. Then a body is found on a lonely, country road. Are the cases connected?

I thoroughly enjoyed He Will Find You which is an event filled read from start to

The story about a great police detective combo that get immersed in an investigation way bigger than they expected.

A kid is found barefoot walking between cars in the middle of the night. Nobody knows his name, he would not talk and he is covered in blood.

Maddie and Harry work together in the police department and even though they have different characters, they make for a great investigation team.

While investigating the kid's case other grusome murders happen. Are they all connected? Who is

Maddie at her best.

Two seemingly separate crimes that Charlie links together perfectly and seamlessly. Then one of their own is targeted and the tension hits boiling point. (For me definitely) Maddie Ives is a legend and her relationship with Harry, although hard going at times, is improving in each book in the series. Charlie's police experience shows in the graphic details in his books and although some details can be gruesome, it all adds up to make the storylines very believable and very

3.5 stars

This book was ok. It was an interesting read! I enjoyed the writing style and the character development. I enjoyed how there were 2 story lines throughout that started to merge together towards the last quarter of the book.

I didn’t get surprised at any point and there was no twist! I felt the ending and where the story was going was a little predictable.

It was however, still an enjoyable read hence the 3.5 rating!

Having read and loved the second book of this series - He Will Kill You - featuring DS Maddie Ives of the Canterbury police, I was really looking forward to reading this third book - He Will Find You - and I was certainly not disappointed!

I thoroughly enjoyed this fast-paced and very tense thriller. It grabbed my attention from the get-go and never let up. The narrative was immensely gripping and really piqued my curiosity and I loved the descriptions of the setting in Kent and the surrounding
