Jessica isn't some whizzkid or genius maverick: she's good at her job, but she makes mistakes and clearly has a lot to learn. This gives the book a different feel to the ones where the detective is full of brilliant insights and is being hampered by Unsympathetic Superiors. It's also more realistic, I think. She actually seemed like a normal young woman. She has a flatmate, good relationships with her colleagues, and a fairly ordinary background. No terrible traumas, no unbelievable backstory. She feels real
Other characters, too, are pretty good. I liked Garry (with two 'R's) the Journalist, and I hope he appears in further books; he's certainly got the potential for it!
There's also plenty of tea. This is is a British novel, and you can tell: there's the deadpan humour, the tea, the lack of resources for public services. It's all much more low-key than the American-set equivalent!
The mystery itself reminded me of several venerable old tales in the genre - but I shan't say which ones. However, Wilkinson puts his own spin on it, which is all to the good.
All in all, this is certainly a series I'll be carrying on with. On to Vigilante (Jessica Daniel Series Book 2) !
Unusually for me I am reading this series out of order but it is not really spoiling my enjoyment.
<b> When a body is found in a locked house, Detective Sergeant Jessica Daniel is left to not only find the killer but discover how they got in and out.
With little in the way of leads and a journalist that seems to know more about the case than she does, Jessica is already feeling the pressure – and that’s before a second body shows up in identical circumstances to the first.
How can a murderer get to victims in seemingly impossible situations and what, if anything, links the bodies? </b>
This is a good opening book for the Jessica Daniels series. In this book Jessica and her team are searching for a killer who leaves the body in a locked house, with no obvious signs of entry. There are additional similar murders and Jessica is struggling to find how the murder victims are connected.
The book opens up the lead character Jessica Daniels to further develop during the course of the series. A decent plot and a good solid lead character with the usual flaws that make them so much more interesting.
A good start to the series.
Would I recommend the book? Well, I did enjoy it and didn't feel my time had been wasted. But with so many other really excellent reads out there, I don't think it would be the first to come to me to suggest to a friend.
