Everyone hates Fiona Methodist.
Her war veteran father shot a young couple in broad daylight before killing himself. The engaged pair had witnessed a robbery and were due to give evidence but, with all three now dead, no one knows the true motive.
For Fiona, it's destroyed her life. It's not just those who whisper behind her back or the friends who pretend she doesn't exist; it's the landlords who spot her name and say no, the job agencies who can't find her work.
But Fiona knows her dad didn't do it. He couldn't have - he's her father and he wouldn't do that . . . would he?
Private investigator Andrew Hunter takes pity on the girl and, even with stolen bengal cats to find, plus an ex-wife who's not quite so 'ex', he can't escape the creeping feeling that Fiona might be right after all.
Super Huge thank you to the Author, Publishers and Netgalley for an ARC of this book.
I have to say I love Kerry Wilkinson's books. I'm a huge fan of the Jessica Daniel series, and I'm getting that way with this series to.
This is the 2nd Andrew Hunter book. Andrew is a Private Investigator, but he seems to just investigate all those things that no one else would be interested in. And seems that he rarely gets paid for most of his work, as he does seem to have a soft spot for a sob story. He might not always get paid, but he certainly goes above and beyond to find out what he want's to know. It's not always easy finding things out, and sometimes you have to delve further than anyone else to get to the truth, it also sometimes gets you into trouble, which is certainly the case for Andrew. I have really grown to like the character Andrew, but also his office assistant/receptionist/sidekick that is Jenny. She's also turning into a great character.
Andrew in this book, has to face up to things from his past too, he needs to start being honest about how he was able to set up his own business, and afford to live in one of Manchester's quite luxurious
apartment blocks in the city centre. But most of all, he need's to explain all this to his ex wife, who is certainly not going to like it.
I love how in all Kerry's books he always manages to get in a mention or two of the Great Manchester weather. It always tickles me when it's mentioned as only anyone living in and around Manchester will ever understand out great weather. I think you always get that little bit more from a book when you know the area that is featured, being able to clearly see things in your mind while reading is certainly an added bonus.
Kerry seems to be able to get the right balance between the serious stuff and the humour side to.
The only down side to Kerry's books is waiting for the next one. (not really an issue as I'm so patient...NOT)
