In Nothing But Trouble, a gripping crime thriller by bestselling crime author Kerry Wilkinson, DI Jessica Daniel has to protect the streets of Manchester from escaped prisoners - and those trying to hunt them down.
Niall O'Brien is a veteran living on the edge of a run-down estate, refusing to sell his house to developers. He's the only remaining resident, alone and frightened by a series of break-ins. He's been threatening to shoot the next intruder but he can't be serious . . . what if the next person through the door is a police officer trying to help?
Elsewhere, on a bright Manchester morning a vehicle screeches across a junction and wipes out a prison van. Two prisoners run for it, leaving the police to track them down.
They don't have long to wait. Hours later, one of the escapees is hanged from a motorway bridge. Was he broken out solely to be killed, or is there something deeper going on?
Meanwhile, someone's conning pensioners out of their savings and there are rumours that the bare-knuckle British middleweight title fight is coming to the city. DI Jessica Daniel fears finding herself in the middle of an all-out war, not knowing that the biggest threat might come from a frightened pensioner.
Well well, Book 11. And I have read and loved everyone of them. Jessica Daniel has become one of my favorite female fictional detectives.
You just can't help but enjoy these books. You could probably get away with reading it as a stand alone, but if you are anything like me, then you need to read them right from book 1, it really helps with the background of the characters, and you feel more for them as their life progresses. So if you haven't read any of these books, then may I suggest this is the series you get stuck into this year.
I also love how all Kerry's books are set in and around Manchester. I always enjoy a book when I know some of the places that are mentioned. I feel it add's to the visions I have while reading.
So Jessica is back, and as usual nothing is ever just simple for her. She is having to deal with a prison van that has been hijacked and the prisoners freed, where are they, who has done it and the big question is why?
Along with this Jessica learns of a neighbour who has been conned out of some of his saving, and soon finds out that others locally have suffered the same. Another case for Jessica to investigate.
Jessica really seems to get involved in everything that is thrown her way, she is a brilliant and believeable character. I also enjoy the banter as well as the serious side of her and her work colleagues.
I really can't wait for more from this series.
And I have to say, another book that ends with you wanting the next one NOW.
His first Jessica Daniel novel, Locked In, is a number one ebook bestseller, while the series as a whole has sold more than a million copies.
He has written a fantasy-adventure trilogy for young adults, a second crime series featuring private investigator Andrew Hunter, plus the standalone thriller, Down Among The Dead Men.
Originally from the county of Somerset, Kerry has spent far too long living in the north of England, picking up words like 'barm' and 'ginnel'.
When he's short of ideas, he rides his bike or bakes cakes. When he's not, he writes it all down.
