DI Maddie Ives #4

A taxi plunges over a cliff killing the woman passenger and the taxi driver. But was it an accident or suicide? DS Madsie Ives is at the scene. In the womans backpack, there is evidence that could ring down a man who has a hold over some women. Around the same time another young woman has just lost her mother to cancer.

I would like to thank Netgalley and Joffe Books for an advance copy of He Knows Your Secrets, the fourth novel to feature DS Maddie Ives, set in the fictional town of Langthorne on the south coast of England.

Holly Maguire dies when the taxi she is in rolls off a cliff but her backpack contains secrets she died to expose. Meanwhile her girlfriend, Kelly Dale, is struggling not only with the death of her mother but to survive a dangerous situation. DS Maddie Ives is the only detective taking Holly

He Knows Your Secret is the fourth book in the Maddie Ives series. They are all stand alone books, but it’s good to read the previous ones, especially book one, to get an overall understanding of the main characters’ background.

Holly and her girlfriend Kelly were trapped in a world of sex and violence. In order to gain their freedom, Holly sacrificed herself by committing suicide and leaving a rucksack filled with clues for the cops to follow in order to hopefully secure Kelly’s freedom from

I gave this book 5 Stars! As a matter of fact, I've given this rating to all of Charlie Gallagher's books because they're all great reads! I became a fan when I was introduced to the Langthorne series (hopefully, there will be a follow-up). I was hesitant when Charlie came out with a new character, so I decided to give it a try. Every single Maddie Ives book has kept me on the edge of my seat! She's one bad ass woman! I was terrified for Kelly and what she went through. At the same time, I was ...more

HE KNOWS YOUR SECRETS by Charlie Gallagher is the fourth book in the Maddie Ives Series. I have not read the previous books in this series, but I feel that Mr. Gallagher does an excellent job of reintroducing the main characters, so you don't have to read the books in order. Mr. Gallagher also brings his vast knowledge of police work, which adds a realistic aspect to his writing. The pacing of this novel is perfect, keeping the reader on edge.

Losing her mum was awful enough, but when her girlfriend kills herself just a few hours later Kelly Dale's grief is almost overwhelming. There is no time for reflection however; she is now the one in danger and has no idea how to save herself.

This was the brilliant beginning to another excellent novel by Charlie Gallagher who mixes the lives of victims, perpetrators and the police together in such a successful way that the reader can slip seamlessly from one scene to the next with no trouble at

I just love this author's books and his lastest book was Just a brilliant read. So when He Knows Your Secrets by Charlie Gallagher came out I just had to turn my phone off, find a comfy spot to open my kindle and become a part of this new book. Blimey what a cracking read Charlie's lastest book was. I was hooked within the first few pages and I just had to finish it to find out what happens.

"Gritty, complex thriller"

When you have a series written by a serving police officer you get an authentic view of the police procedural. Even if some elements have to be 'massaged' in order for there to be an exciting story line. Of course, there were times when characters could have acted differently and the whole premise of this thriller would have disappeared. But this is fiction and designed to entertain.
The exploitation of the women by Freddie Rickman and the others was gratuitous and

Maddie Ives is back and ready to fight for the people who nobody cares about. She is a very addictive character, feisty, determined and underneath the hard exterior she shows when needed lies a very compassionate, caring personality. She has grown on me book by book so I am now at a place where I am nagging Charlie Gallagher to write faster.

A taxi goes over a cliff killing the taxi driver and a prostitute who is known to the Police. Maddie attends and her gut instinct is telling her there is

OMG WHAT A BOOK!!!!
When I requested this book I cleared my reading list and this book went to the top of the pile. Phone switched off and casserole cooking. Cup of coffee by my side and new Charlie Gallagher book to read. I am officially in reading heaven. I literally devoured this book in one sitting and the Maddie Ives series is one of my favourites. Be warned this author is not for the squeamish. Hard hitting, gritty and distressing in places. This author knows how to tell a story and get

I have read several books by Charlie Gallagher now, including He Will Kill You (Maddie Ives 2) and He Will Find You (Maddie Ives 3) and I rated them all five stars. This one - He Knows Your Secrets -is equally as good, exactly as I was expecting, and I just had to finish it to find out what happens. I relish reading this author's books and this latest book was simply brilliant!

This is the fourth book in the series featuring DS Maddie Ives and DI Harry Blaker based in Canterbury, and they just get better and better. 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 into CID, and once reunited they have worked a ...more

So this is the fourth in the Maddie Ives series but I would say it can be read as a standalone but I would recommend starting at the beginning with He Is Watching You for a better understanding of the characters (and it happens to be a really good book too).

Holly Maguire forces a taxi off the road and over a cliff, what would make a young woman like herself do something so drastic? Maddie is about to write it off as murder/suicide when they find a backpack full of seemingly unrelated items.

Great book

This is book 4 in Charlie’s brilliant Maddie Ives series, which i would suggest you read in order so you get a feel for the character and locations.

This time round Maddie is sent to investigate a suspected suicide where a woman has driven off a cliff in a taxi falling to her death. Maddie though doesn’t think things add up and starts to look into it further.

As she digs she finds out the woman was a prostitute and so looks into the dark world until she finds a likely suspect. The only

So once again Maddie Ives knows that the evidence offered may have more to it. When a car plummets off a cliff it looks like a sex act gone wrong. It is in fact a well thought out plan by Holly to unselfishly end her own life to try and save her girlfriend Kelly and bring down a sordid sex ring and its master! With very believable characters who are so well written you are invested in them all from the get go. It invites you into the horrific world of trafficking and the dark web, all of which ...more

Best Maddie Ives Book Yet!!

I have enjoyed all the Maddie Ives books but I really think this one is the best so far! It grabs your attention right from the start and doesn't let go! The characters in this book really spoke to me and in some ways I would like closure on where they're at now. I read this book in two days and am now sitting on pins and needles wondering if there will be another installment. I hope there will be!!

Another great book by Charlie Gallagher that keeps you reading to see what happens next. Maddie Ives is on the scent of criminals as always despite hesitation from her superiors. Great characters and a series of crimes that you wish could only be made up by an author but which you sadly realize is most likely happening in real life as you read. Eagerly awaiting the next offering by Mr. Galllagher who has become one of my favorite authors.

Very true to life

Very believable scumbags and perfectly unexagerated policing, the author got me to the point of actually experiencing a genuine hatred of the main criminal character. Thoroughly enjoyed this read.

Fantastic.
Very dark, but compelling.
Charlie Gallagher’s characters are real and you live their story even when you are not actively reading the book.
I’ve read all his books from the start and they just get better.
As an added bonus, I live in ’Langthorne’ which is the icing on the cake.

I can thoroughly recommend Charlie Gallagher’s books.

I have been a fan of Charlie's work for a fair while now. In fact ever since I had the good fortune to be invited to take part in the blog tour or one of Charlie's previous books. Since then I have caught up with his previous books, whilst keeping pace with every new book that he has released. I read the synopsis for 'He Knows Your Secrets' and I was immediately intrigued. The synopsis certainly sounded like just my kind of read. A fast paced, police procedural, psychological thriller with a ...more
