Product Description

Product Description

Dougie Jamieson is a pillar of the community. He's won awards for his work with children, his brother is a chief inspector and he runs the neighbourhood watch scheme.

But Esther Pooley sees him differently.

After a road rage incident, she's convinced he's the person terrorising her and husband, Charlie, at their suburban dream home.

As the stakes begin to rise, they must decide if bricks and mortar are worth more than their relationship, with Charlie stuck on the toughest of all dilemmas. How far will he go to protect his wife?

This is the latest novel from Kerry Wilkinson, Kindle No.1 bestselling author of the Jessica Daniel series.

More About the Author

Despite two national newspaper reports to the contrary, Kerry Wilkinson is male. Honestly.

His debut, LOCKED IN, the first in the detective Jessica Daniel series, is a UK no.1 Kindle bestseller, with the first three Jessica Daniel books making him Amazon UK's top-selling author for the final quarter of 2011.

THINK OF THE CHILDREN came out in February 2013, outselling Dan Brown to become Amazon UK's no.1 Kindle pre-order, making the top 10 crime ebooks, and entering the official top 20 paperback chart.

Kerry is the first formerly self-published British author to have an ebook no.1 and reach the top 20 of the UK paperback chart.

With PLAYING WITH FIRE, THICKER THAN WATER, BEHIND CLOSED DOORS and standalone dark thriller, WATCHED, Kerry has had eight consecutive top-20 Kindle crime books.

In May 2014, Pan Macmillan will publish RECKONING, the first novel in Kerry's young adult/fantasy/adventure series - the Silver Blackthorn trilogy.

In June, the same publisher will release the ebook SOMETHING WICKED, the first in a series starring Manchester-based private investigator, Andrew Hunter, who appeared in the fifth Jessica Daniel novel.

He is an occasional sports journalist and can frequently be spotted cycling the hills of Lancashire while trying not to be knocked off. Please drive safely around him. He was born in Somerset but now lives in the north west.

RECKONING is out on 22 May 2014; SOMETHING WICKED on 5 June; and the next Jessica Daniel book, CROSSING THE LINE, on 11 September.

RENEGADE (Silver Blackthorn 2) is out in 2015; as is standalone crime thriller DOWN AMONG THE DEAD MEN.

5.0 out of 5 stars a Masterstroke 25 Nov 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am a huge Jessica Daniels fan so it was with a mixture of interest and trepidation I started to read Kerry's move away from JD. I was hooked from page one. This book really affected me and I was really concerned about the main characters. It is so thought provoking that I was thinking about the book whilst I wasn't reading it - esp when I cut someone up at a junction and he made a rather rude gesture at me!! I was in a constant state of fear whilst reading it, its not a common occurrence that a book affects me so deeply. I finished it late last night and was initially rather surprised/disappointed at the sudden ending. Too tired by then to leave a review I decided to do it in the morning. I am so pleased I did this as upon reflection I have changed my mind and realised that in fact this was the perfect ending for the story and a master stroke by Mr Wilkinson. I cannot imagine another way that the book to end and its rather refreshing not to have a standard but convoluted happy ending.
Highly recommended which is why I gave it 5 stars - just don't expect an easy read!

I love Kerry Wilkinson's Jessica Daniels series and I was excited to read Watched, his new stand alone book. It features Esther and Charlie Pooley who moved into their first house together. On her first day and whilst out shopping, Esther accidentally cut off a fellow motorist, her actions of which has lead to the most unimaginable case of bullying and victimisation. From overturned bins and stolen laundry, to outright vandalism, assault and defamation of character, each attack on the Pooleys escalate to unbelievable proportions. This is the kind of book that is gripping and terrifying in equal measures. I found myself very uncomfortable reading it as it is so easy to empathise with Esther and Charlie and how a case of road rage could escalate and get so badly out of hand. And on the other hand, it's a book you just want to continue reading as it's too gripping to ignore. I found the ending could have been more conclusive as I still don't understand the underlying motivations of the bullies and it seems that something is missing. But overall, it's a great book and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

This is based on a preview copy I received a few weeks ago...

I wasn't sure what to expect with this Kerry Wilkinson book. As an avid Jessica Daniels reader I was wondering if the magic would be lost when stepping away. This is a very different book, set in Manchester and about a couple who move into a new area and one chance encounter changes their lives forever.

The premise works very well, believable to the point of haunting. It took a bit longer to get into than previous books by this author, but having read his other books I was willing to persist. This does pay off as you are lead through twists and turns, some you see coming and other surprise. At one point it feels like watching the build up and impact of a car crash; you know it is coming, want to look away, but need to know.

My "does it engage the reader" test was passed - nearly missing my tube stop a couple of times, so be careful!

It is on my must re-read list.

1.0 out of 5 stars Depressing and disappointing! 15 Jan 2014
By Roni
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The author clearly has done little research into the mental state of someone being stalked. It's hard to fathom how a woman who's so terrified of intrusion that she suffers OCD about locking doors and windows can the next minute be sprawled out relaxed on her back lawn, knowing that it's so close to the home of her stalker. As someone who was stalked in their 30s (to the extent that the perpetrator did try to break in), I was terrified to go over the doorstep alone and, now in my 60s, that feeling remains with me in unfamiliar places. Perhaps I'm over sensitive, but I found the victims' reaction in terms of their reluctance to try to convince the police and their inconsistent behaviour implausible. The experience from beginning to end was utterly depressing and waste of precious reading time! Sorry, just my personal opinion!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hard to forget 11 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I read the first part of this before I went to bed one night and found myself thinking about it first thing the next morning, then throughout the day until I could get back to it. The other reviews that say it is relentlessly dark or bleak aren't necessarily wrong, so it depends on you as to whether you think that's a good thing.

Is life all about happy endings with a neat bow on top? If so, you won't like this. Actually, I'm not even sure why you would have bought it given the description. I don't get the negative reviews. What exactly did you expect?

It's easy to criticise Esther for being weak, or Charlie for being stupid but I'm not convinced many people would act that differently given the circumstances. In Charlie's case, especially, the few things he does makes the situation so much worse, even though he's not trying to.

What it does do is make you think.
