A great read Michael and thank you.
When the only witness available is found dead, James Green who has been charged with a series of brutal rapes gets off scot free. DS Scarlett Macey is determined that he won’t be free for long and immediately starts to plan his downfall.
In the meantime James Green is planning his own revenge. Driven by feelings of hatred he begins to pick out those who brought about his downfall. Will he be caught before it’s too late? Scarlett has dealt with many villains but never one as terrifying as James Green.
I will never fail to marvel at how blog tours can lead to the discovery of new authors and introduce you to some very exciting books and series along the way. Until now I hadn’t read any of Michael Fowler’s novels. Being that 'You’re Next' is the second book in the series I did wonder if this would spoil things for me. However, it didn’t and this book can definitely be read as a standalone. Michael Fowler had a career in the police force and for many years worked mainly as a detective. Through his experiences he has been able to successfully turn his hand to writing crime thrillers which I think is fantastic.
It took me a little while to get into the story but I was soon hooked. The short chapters just added to the thrill. The cases were all pretty grisly and didn’t make for particularly pretty reading. One in particular was really heartbreaking but sadly even in this day and age things like that still happen in society, which is a shame.
I enjoyed meeting the various police officers and I really liked DS Scarlett Macey and her work partner DC Tarn Scarr. It was nice getting to know them both and being given an insight into their personal lives. I was also very interested in reading about the police procedurals when dealing with the various cases, knowing that the author was a detective. I wished that Scarlett's concerns had been taken seriously by her DI and DCI.
James Green was just plain evil! The things he did chilled me to the bone. It’s such a pity that charges against him had to be dropped because of there not being enough evidence to support the case.
I will definitely be checking out more of Michael Fowler’s books and I am very much looking forward to the next in the DS Scarlett Macey series.
DS Scarlett Macey has been looking forward to her day in court with James Green, also known as 'The Lycra Rapist', who has been charged with a series of brutal rapes but the case collapses after an incident involving their only witness. Convinced of his guilt, she's furious and sets out to get him to ensure that he pays for his crimes.
But James is also busy, plotting his revenge against the people who he feels have done him wrong. Which one of them will reach their goal first?
I thoroughly enjoyed reading You're Next, with it's cleverly interwoven plots, short, snappy chapters and realistic characters. I loved Scarlett, determined to get her man, despite lacking the support of her superiors, but fully supported by her team, especially DC Tarn Scarr. As for James, he literally made my skin crawl every time he appeared, he was evil personified, determined to ensure that no-one was going to catch him at whatever cost. It's clearly evident that Michael Fowler has a wealth of knowledge and experience within the police force as the procedural details in the book were exceptional.
If you like gritty and believable police procedural/thrillers then this fast paced, action packed book could be just the one for you and I definitely recommend that you give it a try.

This in some ways is quite a frustrating read, that James Green got off with "technicalities"...Read more
