Please note this book is not released until 5th June 2015.
Received from the author in exchange for an honest review.
WOW what a book. Great story and kept me hooked.
Something Wicked is the first book in a new series Kerry Wilkinson is writing based on the character Andrew Hunter.
Andrew Hunter is a private investigator set in the heart of Manchester.
When I first started reading this book and the opening chapter I was left puzzled as to what this book was going to be about, talking about radio presenters with fake American accidents playing 1980's music on a busy Manchester road through morning rush hour. The next minute your following a grey Audi who is brought to an abrupt halt by a) change of traffic lights and b) a girl with an attitude problem. (Not giving the next bit away you need to read!)
All I will say is the girl is called Jenny and low and behold is Andrew's assistant and was part of the first case the book opens with.
The next case is the one that the book centres around with a missing boy of 18 called Nicholas Carr and his father Richard Carr whose looking for him. Nicholas disappeared after a night out with his friends and girlfriend Lara.
Things progress through the book with you getting to know how the characters work, the way Jenny is and her love of "biscuits and fizzy drinks". How Andrew ended up with a beautiful apartment in the heart of Manchester considering his well paid is job isn't.
Not prepared to give much more away, think you need to wait for the release of this book in June and read. If you are lover of the Jessica Daniel's series you will have briefly met Andrew Hunter and if you enjoyed that series I cannot see why you won't like this.
Last thing I would like to say is a massive thanks to Kerry Wilkinson for granting me an ARC to read and review, it was a pleasure and a privilege to read and cannot wait for book #2
