There are 4 books in the series and 2 stand-alone books so plenty to keep you reading way into the night (another book will be along soon.

BODILY HARM a gripping crime thriller full of twists by [GALLAGHER, CHARLIE]BODILY HARM (Langthorne #1)

Available from Amazon

FULL OF TWISTS AND TURNS, THIS CRIME THRILLER WILL KEEP YOU TURNING THE PAGES UNTIL THE SHOCKING CONCLUSION.

One of the grittiest, most authentic police thrillers you will read this year.

An edge-of-your-seat crime thriller starts with a vicious stabbing of a pretty teenage girl and her boyfriend on a local bus. She happens to be the mayor’s niece. It’s the final straw for the community. The police are desperate to get results and decide on a risky course of action involving undercover infiltration of the notorious Effingell Estate.

Detective George Elms knows this hellish place extremely well, and his sharp investigative mind is put to work to solve the crime. The police are under immense media pressure and conveniently a local lowlife confesses to the attack. But George is not convinced. There are many layers of criminal and police motivation, and few people are what they seem.

Authentic, fast-paced, and with a touch of black humour, you won’t want to put down BODILY HARM till the nail-biting conclusion.

Who can you trust? And when his family is put at risk will DS George Elms go beyond the law?

THE SETTING

Langthorne, typical of many smaller seaside towns dotted around the UK’s coastline. Once a thriving tourist destination, where the affluent built grand seafront houses, it has suffered a hard fall from grace. Unemployment has blighted the area and so has crime.

THE DETECTIVE

George Elms joined the police pretty much straight out of school and now in his mid-thirties, he’s been getting in the faces of criminals for over fifteen years. Well known and respected on both sides of the line he is now responsible for running a team who work the crimes that come out of one of the county’s most notorious housing estates. He is married to Sarah and they have a little girl.

Book 4: END GAME


What the readers are saying

I absolutely loved George. Strong, dependable, compassionate, everything you want in a man never mind in a detective. I really enjoyed getting to know his wife and daughter and how he juggles personal issues with his work. For me it humanises his character more and I found I could really empathise with him.  Sarah’s Reviews

This book is fast paced, well written with a few curve balls, and I found this novel hard to put down.  Louise Wilson’s Reviews

It’s a gritty crime thriller pitting good against evil …. and not everyone is who they seem to be. Lies, secrets, ….. who will Detective Elms trust? And how many will die before he gets through all the layers to find the truth?  Linda Strong Book Reviews

​I think in this book you can certainly tell it’s written by someone who has been a serving officer. An interesting read full of suspense. Twists and turns but I found the ending a little strange, and had one or two questions that hadn’t been answered.   Vicki – I Love Reading’s Reviews

JOFFE BOOKS welcome Steve Parker #TeamJoffeBooks #crimefiction #policeprocedural

Everyone at Joffe Books is very excited to welcome a new author to join our group.  We have been keeping him under wraps while everyone worked very hard to make his first book ready for publication.  Now we are there and THEIR LAST WORDS will be available on 22nd June so watch this space as more information will be along soon.

 

First a little about Steve.  I think you will agree his author photo is perfect for a thriller author (and I am hearing good things about his book)

 Steve Parker author bio:

I was born and raised in South East London (Peckham to be precise – cushty, my son). At the ripe old age of twenty-one, I joined the Metropolitan Police where I served for twenty years before I was pensioned out with a serious back injury. I then went to work as an enforcement officer for a local authority before taking redundancy.

Thankfully, I’ve been blessed with a complete lack of DIY skills so was legitimately able to get away with swanning around the house doing bugger all, all day long. Finding myself with plenty of spare time and a deep desire to never work for anyone again, I gave myself permission to go back to writing (I’d been writing on and off for years).

When I’m not writing, I’m out taking photographs, something I’ve done since I was a nipper and will do until the day I shuffle off this mortal coil.

I live down in the windier part of East Sussex near the sea with my long-suffering wife and my ‘off-her-nut’ cockerpoo. I have two sons of whom I am so proud, I cannot begin to tell you.
