Publisher's Summary

The Kindle best seller returns with the first in a gripping new crime series.         

A stranger. A promise. A deadly game.

If it looks too good to be true, it probably is. Even justice.  

Danny and Sharon Evans are desperate for answers. Why did their seemingly happy daughter try to take her own life?  

When a stranger approaches Danny saying he knows who’s to blame, Danny is tempted, despite Sharon’s reservations. And when his new friend offers them revenge, how can he walk away?  

But little does Danny know he is being invited to play a terrible game. A game that won't just change lives – it will end them.   

DI Joel Norris knows this is no ordinary case when two seemingly unconnected murders hit his desk within a matter of days. But how far is he willing to go to solve the puzzle?  

Dark, gripping and unforgettable, The Friend will keep fans of Harlan Coben and Mark Billingham on the edge of their seats.

Great new series

This is a stunning first book in a series which had me totally hooked right from the start. Charlie Gallagher, a new author to me, has written a fast paced, adrenaline fuelled thriller.

This is definitely an edge-of the-seat book. The storyline is quite dark and has hints of The Stranger by Harlen Corben and The Chain by Adrian McKinty, and the violence was a little graphic at times. It is complex and well plotted with several different strands which all blend together brilliantly.

Alexis Rodney did a great job with the narration.
