The story begins with a severed hand being discovered in a busy part of Manchester. No forensic evidence to help, and the only clue is CCTV footage of a mysterious 'woman in black' who nonchalantly places the hand where it can easily be found.
Who does the hand belong to? And who is the woman in black? And what possible reason could they have for what they are doing?
I have to say this is my new favourite of the three books. There are plenty of twists and turns and red herrings along the way, and the ending lived up to my expectations - and then some!
I would advise anyone to read the first 2 books first, as book 2 and 3 both contain spoilers regarding the outcome of book 1.
The main character Jessica is really well developed, she's come a long way since Locked In and you really feel like you're getting to know her very well now. The banter between her and DC Rowlands works really well, and brings some light relief along the way.
If you've read and enjoyed Locked In and Vigilante then this is a must read. The only negative I can think of is that I'm going to have to wait a while for my next Jessica fix!
Oh, and make sure you don't miss the 'extras' at the end of the book...
The premise of the 'woman in black' is presented in a really engaging way. It is great to meet Jessica and her colleagues again too, although the book would stand alone if you haven't read books 1 and 2 ( but if you haven't read them, do so- they are great). The novel is set in Manchester so there is the added bonus of 'place spotting' if you are from the North West, although, unlike some other novels, the geographical references do not detract from the story (in some novels you virtually get satnav directions for every place mentioned - not in this one)!
There are some carefully drawn characters and the interaction between Jessica and her colleagues is believable ; the characters seem real and natural . Clearly there has been a lot of research done into parts of the novel but the technical bits where it is important to get police procedure right, for example , don't take the novel over. The story keeps moving and keeps you guessing, so you want to keep on reading. I was really intrigued to find out 'whodunnit' and throughly enjoyed this novel. It certainly kept me awake at night reading it longer than I would normally be!
The plot is well-paced, the writing carefully thought about and constructed . There are a few typos, but I think this is inevtable with books on Kindle where there is no external proof reading or copy-editing. It doesn't spoil the book. Great stuff! I am looking forward to the next novels about Jessica.
This third book is the best - what a GREAT story! I honestly couldn't put it down, to the extent that when brushing my teeth and putting my make up on, I had my kindle read the story out to me!
Kerry - you've done a GREAT job with this one. Well done.
I cannot wait for the next one (before Christmas :-)?)
The Woman In Black makes you think with all the twists and turns of the story. Two different stories that divide the whole team down the middle. Where is the local MP's wife and who is the woman in black has the Manchester Police chasing their tails with the local media hanging around 1 particular scene when the other needs the coverage just as bad. What happens with DS Jessica Daniels social life as her best friend's wedding is coming up. Will she catch the killer in time?
Kerry Wilkinson is a brilliant writer. This is the third enstallment of Jess Daniels and I can't wait to read more.
Definately recommend it.
The first and second books were good, but I think this one was slightly better, less predictable. An enjoyable read.
