Scarred for Life

Kerry Wilkinson

A mound of leaves had been shoved backwards into the gully but that wasn’t what his eyes were drawn to. Poking through the undergrowth was a pale, lifeless human arm.

When the broken body of a talented student is found dumped in the grounds of a university, Detective Jessica Daniel is called in to investigate. The victim had connections to the rowing club and an Olympic medallist. But is the death the result of a sporting accident gone wrong or has there been a murder at the university?

When a dog walker discovers the body of a woman a few days later, an overworked Jessica finds herself trying to solve two cases. Could a mysterious tattoo link the bodies to a serial killer?

As the pressure to solve the crimes increases, Jessica’s personal and professional lives collide. She receives a chilling letter through her front door, accusing her of arresting the wrong man. Someone close to her could be in grave danger…

An addictive and heart-stopping thriller full of twists and turns. Perfect for fans of Angela Marsons, Rachel Abbott and Robert Bryndza. Discover Kerry Wilkinson’s Detective Jessica Daniel crime series today.

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 

‘Wilkinson’s story spreads like a pool of blood… his talent becomes ever more obvious’ Daily Mail
