Crossing The Line (Jessica Daniel, #8)

On a rare day off work, waiting for furniture to be delivered I made the most of the day by chilling and reading the rest of this book.

As usual Kerry Wilkinson has done it, excellent way to start the series 2 of the Jessica Daniel's books.  Set in Manchester (before the Ferris wheel arrived) for those of you familiar with the area.  Starts off with a gathering in Piccadilly where the Home Secretary is, visiting and a few local Councillors are there as well. 

The book then continues with one of the Councillors being injured, along with various other members of the public in what appear to be unprovoked attacks, the reoccurrence of the story regarding the Stretford Slasher 25 years on. 

Found this part hard to get into, but knowing what Kerry's writing is like knew I had to preserve and all would make sense and low and behold I was right!!!

Things take a drastic turn towards the end when Jessica is helping out an "old friend" which makes you think where is this going and having me guessing all sorts of things, having read the previous books and knowing what happened to her in those, then it picks up to a fast conclusion which kept me hooked.

Great continuation to the series and look forward to reading the next one in the series which has already been written and has a taste at the end of this making you want more. 

One thing in the book that made me giggle was the quote "skin flaking like a dried-out Danish" - will never look at a Danish in the same light again.

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

My thanks go to Kerry for letting me read this advance copy which as usual was excellent.
