Review

A Tapping At My Door is a spellbinding and spine chilling read that had me literally on the edge of my seat...It had me well and truly gripped from beginning to end. * Bytheletterbookreviews.com * As flawed heroes go, Cody is up there with the best in every sense and you'll find yourself worrying about him as much as the bloody terror he's facing. A thrilling series opener. -- Jon Wise * Weekend Sport * I was sucked in and had tears in my eyes and a lump in my throat. At other points, I just couldn't turn the pages fast enough. Jackson's writing is flawless. Clear and concise. To the point and cuts you when you're not looking. Utterly utterly fabulous. What a way to start a series! Highly recommended. -- Rebecca Bradley * Murder Down to A Tea Blog * His writing style is brilliant and a joy to read...Jackson has created wonderful new characters with DS Cody and DC Webley. The plot of A Tapping At My Door opens in best Hitchcock tradition and moves along smoothly with enough suspense to keep the reader enthralled right until the unexpected ending * Devoted to Thrills Blog * The opening chapter of Jackson's new novel features a spine tingling level of fear that mounts at a cracking pace... Jackson's strength lies in being able to execute a challenging plot device with sensitivity, empathy and care. He's all about delivering emotional depth while entertaining his readers. * Pam Reader Blog * It takes quite a lot to render me speechless but this book did just that. There was a moment near the end that I switched off to everything around me as I wanted to give everything I had as a reader to the final few pages of the book that is definitely going to be in my Top 10 of 2016...perfection' * My Chestnut Reading Tree Blog * A deliciously dark and compelling investigation... a well-executed thriller, with plenty of scope and a firm foundation for a projected series. * Raven Crime Reads Blog * It's one of the few novels that I have read where I felt some empathy towards the killer and revulsion towards a victim. It's a fantastic novel, the first in a new series that has huge potential. * Steph's Book Blog * 'A Tapping at my Door is a superbly written crime thriller. It is full of action, with some brilliantly drawn characters thrown into the mix. I cannot recommend it highly enough and I gave it 5 stars on Goodreads. It kept me reading late into the night. * bibliophilebookclub.com * It's a fast paced crime thriller featuring the hunt for a vengeful serial killer. Absolutely everything I love in a book! * Damp Pebbles Blog * A Tapping at My Door is the best crime fiction novel I've read. It's an outstanding book, and it's one that I am going to be recommending to everybody. * Book Addict Shaun Blog * I can't recommend this book enough, it is definitely going to be in my top ten reads of 2016, there isn't one bit that could have been better! * Cleopatra Loves Books Blog * A very decent police thriller...well written and quite gripping * Sid's Book Blog * It grabs you right from the start and doesn't let go...An outstanding read. A first rate gem of read. Oh god I need to get more books by this author! * I Love Reading Blog * By far the best book I have read this year...this book picks you up from page one and doesn't put you down till the last page. It is a rollercoaster of plot, intrigue, false turnings and twists. * breakawayreviews.co.uk * The Liverpool setting makes for an interesting change, the characters are well drawn and the plot builds to a taut and tense conclusion. In all, a worthy addition to the annals of British detective fiction * The Sydney Morning Gerald * A pacy, suspenseful story with a dramatic finale and with some teasing loose ends that will no doubt be followed up (I hope!) - this is a series that I will happily follow and I look forward to meeting Nathan Cody again * My Reading Corner Book Blog * Jackson has proved himself a clever and compelling writer and A Tapping at My Door is a powerful opener... a gripping, atmospheric chiller with a spine-tingling hint of Hitchcock, a superbly drawn cast and a police procedural so authentic that it's like tagging along with the CID -- Pam Norfolk * blackpoolgazette.co.uk * This is a gripping, tense, edge-of-your-seat thriller that will keep you guessing until the very end * Nudge Books * Quite possibly the creepiest opening to a crime novel that I have ever read. It feels like a horror film, you don't want to look, but you do anyway. DS Cody is a fantastic character and the unusual twist to the plot had me hooked * Damp Pebbles * The ending on that will take your breath away and you can't tell anyone else about it or you'll ruin the book. But, it's stunning. I love David Jackson's work. I'd pick up anything he writes without reading the back -- Rebecca Bradley * Portobello Book Blog *
