Read what everyone is saying about the Detective Jessica Daniel series:

This book had me gripped from the very beginning and I read it in almost one sitting. Kerry Wilkinson at his very best.’ Goodreads Reviewer, 5 stars

Absolutely loved this book! Given the ending, I can’t wait for the next instalment.’ Goodreads Reviewer, 5 stars

‘Tense and gripping reads…this one took me about a day to finish… a winner of a book.’ In Search of the Classic Mystery Novel

A thumping good read…it is especially satisfying to see a female detective triumph. In addition, she is a ballsy, well rounded character that you end up rooting for as she puts herself in danger in order to close the case. The clever and unexpected plot twist at the end is one which, in true British Sherlock Holmes style, could have been deduced by the reader using the clues provided by the author. This is the epitome of a great holiday read. You can relax in the skilful hands of a writer who brings you with him every step of the story.’ Promoting Crime Fiction 

‘Another brilliant, pacey novel. A good read from start to finish. Keeps you engaged and entertained.’Frost Magazine 

‘This is a very well written story. You are led into believing you know who the killer is and then comes along another twist – very cleverly put together. I liked the character of Jessica Daniel and it definitely makes me want to read another book with her featuring in it. Kerry Wilkinson puts together an intriguing yet humorous in parts story and is a very talented writer. Bring on the next book!’ Mojo Mums
