So, after the interesting season finale (!?!?) which was book 7, normal service is resumed and we are back in the Police Station. Jessica is promoted to DI and if anyone has any thoughts or worries regarding whether she has to grow up to fit her new position then let me assure you, the banter and irreverence that is so great in this series is still there... in spades.
The case Jessica finds herself in the middle of is interesting as it refer back to an old case which is supposedly closed. When seemingly random people get attacked in bizarre ways, Jessica is on a race against time to work out if these are connected, if so, how and why? Ably assisted by Izzy and Dave (when he deigns to return from holiday) it is lovely to return to their banter and bickering, fights and relationships as together they start to find and patch the pieces of the puzzle.
Characters as always are well drawn and have their own identity. Pacing is good throughout as always, there is also a good balance between description and narrative. The ending when it came was a little bit shocking but totally credible in the way explained. I am not sure we have heard the last about certain elements of this story.
And, with that thought in mind. I am going to read the next in the series. Hopefully I'll have it done soon as I believe there is a new one out in Early Feb.
I thought this book was great. The story was well paced throughout and wound up rather than down towards the end. Wilkinson has said he wrote this and the next one back to back. I cannot wait to find out how the ending of this impacts the character of the next.
Wilkinson is a witty word smith who writes great dialogue and very descriptive passages as well.
I know one of the reasons was Kerry Wilkinson had streaked in an Andrew Hunter novel and was engrossed in it.
When I started to read the latest Jessica Daniels it was like slipping on an old favourite cardigan. It's all there, the old police station all the usual characters and after some plot setting to bring us up to speed with Jessica's world you know you are in for a good read and then the crimes start and off we go into another brilliant story.
I was thoroughly carried along with this spate of latest crimes in Greater Manchester and such was the writing that I became captivated in what turned out to be another page turner keeping the suspense right up to the very end
If you are into crime novels it does not matter if you have not read the books from book one each one will get you into wanting to read the others.
Great book Kerry long may you continue in the good work and keep your readers happy.
