It started with a phone call. Just one word - ‘Jessica’ - and now Detective Inspector Jessica Daniel has a big problem.
Her missing friend, Bex, called from a battered seaside payphone and yet, by the time Jessica arrived, there was nobody there.
One man claims he can help – but then he turns up on a beach stabbed to death.
Jessica believes someone must be framing her. Someone who is always a step ahead. When she finds a boy whose tattoo matches Bex's, she becomes more desperate than ever for answers. But, with the police growing more suspicious, Jessica doesn’t have long to find Bex before she becomes the prime suspect for a murder.
With more than her career at stake, can Jessica clear her name - and find her friend - before it’s too late for them both?
Jessica Daniel book 13 - I feel like I've waited forever to read this book. So much so, that the day I received this book I started it, I stopped the other book I'd started and made an immediate start on this. It didn't take me long to jump right back into the world of Jessica Daniel.
For anyone who doesn't know I am a huge Jessica Daniel fan and this series has been one of my all time favourites. There is just something so familiar about Jessica then gives an instant liking towards her, and having grown with her over 13 books, she's almost like an old friend.
Jessica this time around is not in windy, rain soaked Manchester, she's in even windier, more rain soaked Blackpool.
After receiving a phone call from her missing friend Bex (Rebecca) she Jumps in her car and heads along the motorway.
Finding a bit of a grotty B&B to stay in, because this is the place that is right facing the telephone kiosk that Bex called her from.
The call she received was just one word 'Jessica' and Jessica knew right away it Bex. Trying to understand why she phoned and only spoke one word is something Jessica need's to figure out. She believes that maybe Bex is in some sort of trouble and would know that Jessica would follow up on her call.
Jessica is puzzled when she see's the phone booth, and see's a poster of a missing girl who looks just like Bex. It certainly can't be a coincidence, which gears Jessica up even more.
Jessica calls the number on the poster, and things take a very dramatic turn for her, has she been set up, if so why and who by.
This is a great story of the Hunter becoming the hunted, the story itself left me wanting to read on, at the end of each chapter it becomes, just one more chapter. It was good to see Jessica flying solo and not having her team out with her, it was also good that Andrew Hunter, a character from another series of Kerry Wilkinson's books made an appearance. I can't believe how different this book felt from others, but no less engaging, no less interesting, and certainly no less thrilling. It seam's odd saying it was a roller coaster of a ride, when it's set in Blackpool, the town with one of the biggest roller coasters in the country.
One of the best. I can't wait to read more about Jessica and it will be interesting now to see what direction her life takes, what ever it is, I'll be rooting for her the whole way. Mr Wilkinson, can you please write some more, and very quickly.
