A Brilliant start to a new series-
Andrew Hunter Private Investigator. Book one.
We kick off this book with Andrew and his assistant Jenny working together as Private investigators.
Things seem to be just plodding along, when Richard Carr turns up, asking for help in tracing his son, who went missing 9 month ago. He feels the police are no longer interested in his missing son but needs to know what happened to him. The only trace that was left is 3 missing fingers found in the local woods. (try not to be sat in those woods, like i was, whilst reading this part)
Andrew and Jenny set off on a journey to see what they can uncover. And it seems the more they find out, the more complicated and dangerous things get.
The Main characters in this book Andrew and Jenny are likable and seem Real to the point that you actually felt like they were someone you knew, there seems to be a strange but good relationship between them. I feel there is a lot more to come of Andrew and look forward to getting to know him more in future books.
I really did like Jenny she just seemed different, nothing seems to bother her, and she just gets on with whatever she feels is needed to be done.
The area in which this story is based is Manchester, and living in the Greater Manchester area myself, i really felt like i was there with them as i could actually visualize most of the places, which I always find really adds to the experience of reading.
For those that don't know Andrew Hunter briefly appeared in Kerry's Jessica Daniels series - book 5 -Playing with Fire.
There are similarities in this book to the Jessica Daniels books. But this is a great start to a new series, and who knows we might actually see Andrew and Jessica working a case together in future books.
I was lucky to receive an Advanced Review copy of this book, and was thoroughly delighted.
If you have read any of Kerry Wilkinson's books and enjoyed them then you will definitely enjoy this. If you haven't yet read any of his work, then this book would be a great place to start.
A very easy read, with a great story line. And had it not been for real life, i think if i'd had the chance I could have read this in one sitting, just to find out what happened...
Looking forward to the next one.
