Another excellent read
on 26 November 2011
Having previously read Locked In and Vigilante, I was really looking forward to the third outing for Jessica Daniel and having stayed awake til 1am to finish it, I certainly haven't been disappointed!
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...
