THE MOST HEART-POUNDING THRILLER YOU WILL READ THIS YEAR
THREE WOMEN. ONE WILL SACRIFICE HER LIFE TO STOP HIM. ONE IS HIS NEXT VICTIM. ONE MUST TRY TO PUT HIM BEHIND BARS.
Holly Maguire takes a taxi to a clifftop location. She is determined to make things right. Then the car goes over the edge of the cliff.
As Holly falls to her death, she tightens her grip on a rucksack.
SHE WILL GIVE HER LIFE TO BRING HIM DOWN.
Kelly Dale wakes up to her first day without her mother. Her mum passed away late the previous night after losing a battle with cancer. Kelly receives a text from Holly, sent just before the accident, and rushes to the clifftop. She is too late.
Kelly has lost her mother and girlfriend in the space of a few hours.
Now she must face her own battle to stay alive.
HE WILL KILL KELLY NEXT. HE WANTS TO LIVE-STREAM HER MURDER.
Detective Maddie Ives is called out to inspect the wrecked vehicle. She is under pressure to write it off as a murder-suicide or a terrible accident. Holly was a known sex worker and the running theory is that she may have been engaged in activity with the taxi driver when it rolled over the side.
Maddie doesn’t buy it. Holly’s rucksack contains seemingly random and worthless items but Maddie quickly finds numerous links to a crime boss.
MADDIE MUST STOP A POWERFUL MAN WHO EXPLOITS AND CONTROLS WOMEN.
It’s a tense and thrilling ride as the net closes in. But time is running out to save Kelly.
HE KNOWS YOUR SECRETS: the new thriller from Charlie Gallagher. Perfect for fans of Kimberley Chambers, Damien Boyd, Rachel Abbott, Patricia Gibney or Mark Billingham.

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. Unable to leave it alone, she digs deeper to find disturbing secrets that she needs to unravel.
He Knows Your Secrets is a gritty and gripping police procedural that took me on a surprisingly emotional journey.
This book does touch on some tough subjects, prostitution and suicide are just two I can name but Charlie Gallagher manages to both handle them with both believability and sensitivity.
I would urge anyone who loves a police procedural to pick up this fantastic series each ones seems to be getting better and better!
He Knows Your Secrets is a disturbing yet utterly captivating read that will grab you from that very first chapter.
