Publisher's Summary

They think they are safe at home. Someone knows better. 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 who 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?

Great listen!

I really enjoyed this book. The narrator was excellent. She really brought the main character Jessica to life. Self-deprecating, sarky and frankly, not the smartest detective, Jessica is not sweet or particularly likable character but she is believable and very entertaining. The plot was good, not very intriguing but it still kept me interested to the end. The story does offer and excellent depiction of Manchester and British culture through the characters in the book. It was spot on, showing a really appreciation for the humour in ordinary British life. This is likely my first of many Jessica Daniel novels.

Excellent book plenty to keep you enthralled

Where does Locked In rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I've just started listening to the audio books so it's high on my list, but it's such and easy way to do the ironing and be whisked away into the story

Who was your favorite character and why?

Jessica as I can totally relate to her! She portrayed as being human which is nice, making mistakes and then rectifying them

Which scene did you most enjoy?

Ones with Jessica and Dave

Any additional comments?

Kerry Wilkinson is a very good story teller, leaves you wanting to now what happening next

Simply Brilliant!

There is a previous reviewer on here who marked this book down because s/he didn't like the way it was narrated; said that it was read like a mother reading to a child! I wish my mother had read to me in that manner! My solution was to play the sample to see if I could handle the voice, style and, story. I'm glad that I did!

If you are a fan of the Peter James 'Roy Grace' novels, then, in DS Jessica Daniel, is a Manchester equivalent, in terms of style, procedures, characters and complexity/simplicity of story.

Many previous reviewers said that they didn't have a clue during the collection of evidence, who the perpetrator could be. It was that well written. The irony is, that even the author told us about it: misdirection! Simply Brilliant! Enjoy!
