The publisher, Panmacmillan, very kindly provided me a proof of Crossing The Line, this the first novel by Kerry Wilkinson that I’ve read so far.
Long before Jessica Daniel became a police detective, Manchester was a ghost city after dark. Fear ruled as people were afraid to be out by themselves, the notorious Stretford Slasher terrorizing its inhabitants.
Now, twenty-five years on and the media are feeling nostalgic. But Jessica has a new case to worry about. Apparent strangers are being targeted in broad daylight, the attacker unworried about being caught. If only Jessica and her team could track him down
It’s the coldest spring in memory and Jessica has old friends to look out for, plus secrets – so many secrets – that should have long been buried
I did find this extremely hard to get into, it just did not grab me I think it is because this is the first book I have read in the Jessica Daniel series I understand I have started from series 2.
I did plough my way through. I loved the descriptions of Manchester (I have never been). Kerry’s attention to detail is amazing which kept me with the book I think any new writers should take note. I think before I read anymore of this series I will need to start right from the start.
3 of 5 stars
Afternote: I have spotted this title in tescos in the 2 books for £7
