Publisher's Summary

From Kerry Wilkinson, the best-selling author of the Jessica Daniel novels, comes a new crime series.
Nicholas Carr disappeared on his 18th birthday and the world has moved on. His girlfriend has gone to university, his friends have got jobs, the police have other things to look into.
But his father, Richard, is still stuck on the three fingers the police dug up from a sodden Manchester wood. What happened to Nicholas on the night he disappeared, and why did he never come home?
Private investigator Andrew Hunter is Nicholas' last hope - but Andrew has his own problems. There's something about his assistant that isn't quite right. Jenny's brilliant but reckless, and he can't figure out what she gets from their working relationship. By the time he figures out who's a danger and who's not, it might all be too late...

Great start to a new series.

This is my first book by this author, even though I have the first 2 in his The Silver Blackthorn Trilogy, and I have to say that I really enjoyed this!

When a man turns up saying that his son went missing 9 months ago and he feels the police have lost interest in it. He wants Andrew to investigate and see can he find him. With very little clues, three fingers were all that was found, Andrew and his assistant, Jenny, set out to see what they can find. First stop, the boys then girlfriend Lara!

Character wise, I loved both of the MCs. Andrew is such an all round great guy and Jenny is such an enigma! She has a story and I can't wait to see it unfold! She is just so fearless and odd....

Plot wise, this was relatively fast paced. The focus is on the main investigation, which is filled with twists and turns, but there are some side things happening too. I was surprised with the twist near the end and totally didn't see it coming!

In all, a great start to what will hopefully be a great series. This author knows how to keep his readers hooked!!

Nigel Patterson was as good as always. He is so easy to listen to and has a pleasant voice. He has such an "English gentleman" voice!! Lol,

*I received a free copy of this from the narrator. This in no way affected my thoughts.*

Mystery thriller

Any additional comments?

This audiobook is a fast paced mystery thriller. I have to stop listening at one point while driving because I was so into the thrilling narration. I finished listening when I got home.I highly recommend.

Something worth purchasing

What did you like most about Something Wicked?

A story set in my city with three dimensional characters and a strong story

Who was your favorite character and why?

Jenny (Andrew's assistant) stands out from the beginning as unique character. The more I read about her, the more than I wanted to know about her.

What does Nigel Patterson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

He helps bring the strong 3D characters on the page to life.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Little did he know that a finding a missing son would put their lives on the line

Any additional comments?

Can't wait for the next audio book from Kerry Wilkinson.

Okay

The relationship between the two main characters was interesting, but I didn't feel gripped by the story or the narrator. It was an 'okay' listen from a daily deal members offer.
