Thank you very much to Jill Burkinshaw (books_n_all) for asking me to close the blog tour for Charlie Gallagher’s new book Then She Ran, which was published by Joffe Books on the 24th April 2018.
About the Book
Discover a gripping crime thriller which will have you gripped from the explosive beginning to one of the most surprising endings of the year.
On a lazy Sunday morning Jenny Harris is shaken awake by her panic-stricken boyfriend, Joseph. Their baby daughter lies asleep on her chest. ‘We’ve got to go!’ Joseph screams.
In their hotel room, Jenny hurriedly wraps her tiny baby up. All their belongings are left behind. There’s no time. Joseph’s panic is contagious.
Jenny sprints with her family from the hotel. And it’s clear that they are being chased. Their pursuers are indiscriminate and they are deadly. Her boyfriend falls, caught up in the carnage, but he manages to give her one last message: RUN!’
Detective George Elms is investigating a separate crime: an elderly woman shot in the stomach during a robbery gone wrong. She is left for her dead in her country kitchen where she stood firm against violent thieves.
What’s the link between the two incidents? And who will do anything to silence Jenny forever?
George’s only option is to make ground on both cases. And he must move fast. Because everyone is in deadly danger and time is running out.

Book 1: BODILY HARM
Book 2: PANIC BUTTON
Book 3: BLOOD MONEY
Book 4: END GAME
This is a brilliant book, which starts off with a bang and an exhilarating pace, which never drops off until the end.
The story starts off with a man and woman running away from a gang, with their little girl. The action hots up with another murder of an old lady, where we are left wondering how the two murders are linked, if at all.
The characters are really well written and have a great depth to them that you don’t always find in crime books, and the plot line was brilliant, with lots of lovely twists that I didn’t know where the story was going from one moment to the next.
I am really starting to like Charlie’s books and will be going through his back catalogue to start getting to know the complete back story of George as I have only read End Game before.
Overall this is yet another great book by Charlie and I can’t wait to read more by him.
