Who is watching him and what does he want?

Two years ago someone kidnapped Thomas Maddox’s six-month-old son. The case has never been solved and the boy has never been found.

Now someone is watching Thomas and sending him dark emails.  And Thomas keeps suffering nasty accidents.

The police won’t do anything more, so Thomas’s wealthy grandfather hires Tyrone Swift to shed light on the case.

Can ex-police detective Tyrone Swift get to the bottom of this tangled web of family secrets and pain, and is there any hope of finding the child alive?

WATCHING YOU is a beautifully written mystery that will have you gripped from start to pulsating finish.

Perfect for fans of Robert Galbraith, P.D. James, or Ruth Rendell.

My Review:

My Rating: 4.9 out of 5 stars

This is the first Tyrone Swift book I have read and I think I have been missing out on an excellent series.

Tyrone is a very lovable character. Unlucky in love and life but he has let this shape him into a very caring and compassionate man. He is an ex-policeman turned PI and has earned a very good reputation for getting results. This book sees him struggling with a lot of personal issues which leaves him a little vulnerable to the issues that present themselves within the case.

Swift is hired by Gabe to find the sender of threatening emails. As we delve deeper into the case the true personality of Gabe presents itself and it is not a pretty picture. Gabe is an overbearing bullying character with a very inflated opinion of himself. He thinks he knows what is best for everyone and that people should do his will. I didn’t like Gabe but then I am pretty sure I wasn’t supposed to.

The case is prompted by the emails but it actually starts 2 years before when Thomas’ baby is snatched and accidents seem to see him coming. Swift is of the opinion all the events and abduction are linked in some way to the emails but Gabe and the police disagree. Swift begins the long hard job of untangling the webs of lies, deceipt, bribery and relationships and trying to put it all back together.

This is a totally gripping book that grabs the reader at the beginning and doesn’t let go. There are twists and turns all the way through. Just when you think you have worked it out another thread appears which keeps the suspense building right to the very end.

This is a brilliant read and I can’t thank Joffe Books enough for providing me with an advance copy.

“I was born and brought up in London. My parents were Irish. I studied for a B.A. in English at The University of Ulster and subsequently a qualification in Social Work. I taught English in secondary schools, then worked in social care for many years.

I started writing for children in my thirties and had five books published with Poolbeg Press. My first adult fiction novel won a bursary from East Midlands Arts. My first published novel, Araby, was with Harper Collins, followed by Marble Heart. Robert Hale published the next three novels; Fire and Ice, Out of the Blue and The Apple of Her Eye.

I have had two short stories, The Old Master and The Gold Digger, commissioned by and read on Radio Four.

I have always been an avid reader of psychological thrillers and crime fiction and decided, in retirement, to turn to crime. I am currently working on releasing my fourth novel featuring private detective Tyrone Swift.”
