    One thought on “Locked In”

    1. This is the first book in the Detective Jessica Daniel Series. I really enjoyed this first book and will be continuing this series. This is a great start to the series. I found it to be a very quick read. This is about a murder case where all the doors and windows are locked from the inside. There aren't any windows broken or no signs of forced entry. How did the killer get in or out of the house when everything is locked up? Then there is another murder just like the first one as Detective Serg [...]

    2. I received a copy of The Killer Inside from NetGalley for an honest opinion. My thanks to Bookouture and to Kerry Wilkinson for the opportunity."There was no regret, no feeling of anything really. The victim certainly deserved it, as would the others to come."Detective Sergeant Jessica Daniel faces a challenge like no other in her career as an officer in the Crime Investigation Department of the Greater Manchester Police. Newly promoted and as a female in the police ranks, Jessica has everything [...]

    3. I’ve had my eye on this British police procedural series for a while now. When I saw book 1 offered on Net Galley, I knew I had to grab it, and I’m pleased I did. The Killer Inside is a solid start to the Detective Jessica Daniel series.Jessica is a well-portrayed protagonist. She is a 30-year-old Detective Sergeant newbie, just recently promoted from her Detective Constable status mainly because of manpower need rather than meritorious service. She is thrown right into a murder case for whi [...]

    4. If you're a mystery lover, there's nothing to build anticipation like the discovery of a new series. So, I was thrilled to get approved by netgalley to read not just the latest, but the first six books in the Jessica Daniel series by Kelly Wilkinson. The Killer inside is the first of the series. The book starts with an interesting premise, a murdered victim is discovered inside a locked house. Jessica Daniel, a recently promoted DS is the lead on the investigation. I like that she's a novice, no [...]

    5. THE KILLER INSIDE introduces the reader to Detective Jessica Daniel. She is called in to investigate the murder of a woman. There are no clues, no DNA, and better yet the door is locked from the inside with no evidence of any other way into her house. The woman has been beaten and strangled.The case is presenting more questions than answers. Jessica is under the gun, so to speak, to find the killer and do it fast.And then there's another body discovered in a locked house. And when a third body [...]

    6. First off, I forgot what this book was about when I downloaded it I went into it blindly. I have to admit, I kinda liked not knowing what I was getting into when I began reading. Secondly, I now want to read this series and its not available in Americat! Ugh! So that's a little frustrating. By the way, the U.K.'s book is called: Locked In. I really liked the character of Jessica. I liked her sarcasm, I liked the fact that she wasn't some kick-ass-I can do everything chick. You can tell she was s [...]

    7. Last year I read Crossing the Line, which is book 8 in the Manchester based Jessica Daniel series and I really enjoyed it. I am finally catching up with a series that most crime fans will have got to already. I know the series has been incredibly popular. It is clear from Locked In exactly why. It has masses of potential with a great lead in Jessica.Jessica and her team are on the hunt for a Houdini style killer. The killer leaves the body in a locked house and shows no obvious means of entry to [...]

    8. Detective Sergeant Jessica Daniel has been called in to head up an investigation when a body turns up inside of a locked home. With very little to go on in the investigation things really heat up when a second body is discovered putting even more pressure on Jessica to get the case solved. To make matters worse there seems to be a journalist that knows more than he should and now the headlines have turned into the Houdini serial killer on the loose. The Killer Inside is the first book in the Det [...]

    9. This was my first book by this author and I have to say she will be a new favorite. Good read. When a murder is committed behind a locked door, DS Jessica Daniel has to find out how this crime was committed. Then another body is discovered in the same manner and the two seemed to be linked but that cannot discover the connection between the two people. One was a woman and the other a man. Both seem random but as more and more detail come to light these murders may actually be connected. Can DS D [...]

    10. Detective Sargent Jessica Daniel is called to investigate a murder, and she quickly notices that there are no signs of a forced entry - all of the doors and windows are locked when she arrives, and no keys are missing. When a second body is found killed in the same way, Jessica knows she's up against the clock and that she needs to crack the case before the killer strikes again. How are the victims connected, how is the killer able to get in and out of the house, and who is this journalist that [...]

    11. Locked In had been sitting on my audible shelf for quite some time. I'm really glad I finally picked this up. It was an entertaining British crime procedural set in Manchester with a likeable protagonist, DS Jessica Daniel. It was easy to connect with Jessica. I liked her sarcasm. While perhaps a little predictable (the killer was relatively easy to guess), the plot was nevertheless really interesting and kept me absorbed. As the first book in a series, it certainly has great potential and I wil [...]

    12. Detective Jessica Daniel is the lead investigator of a case where the victim was found murdered in a locked house. Jessica and her team have no clues and are chasing dead ends when another body is found under the same circumstances. With a lot of pressure from the media and her supervisors Jessica is racing against time to find this Houdini serial killer before he claims another victim. This is the first book in the Jessica Daniel series by Kerry Wilkinson and is off to a great start. It started [...]

    13. 4.5 FangsI'm super happy I found a new series to read! I have a huge addiction to thrillers and this one was just up my ally.The Killer Inside features Detective Sergeant Jessica Daniel. She has recently received a promotion after her superior was stabbed and left the force. Soon after, she is called to investigate a murder. A woman has been found dead in her home but without any signs of a break-in. It's disconcerting when all the windows and the doors are found to be locked. The police had to [...]

    14. Buen libro policíaco. Buenos personajes, buenas relaciones, trama simple y rápida. Es muy ameno y fluido, para nada pesado. El inicio es como debe ser: se presentan los protagonistas de una manera clara y profunda, y se plantea el enigma de la novela: el típico problema del cuarto encerrado, que innovó Poe con su excelente cuento Los Crímenes de la Calle Morgue. El final no me gustó Muy predecible.

    15. I feel that I may have joined the Kerry Wilkinson party a little late, looking at the phenomenal success he has enjoyed from self publishing to major book deal, but better late than never! I fair raced through ‘Locked In’ the first DS Jessica Daniel investigation, an engaging police procedural set on the mean streets of Manchester and setting the scene for a series worthy of attention. I think what I liked most about the book was the character of Jessica herself, as unlike many other crime a [...]

    16. Locked In has been on my TBR forever and a blogging friend of mine (Vicki) is a huge fan of the series so I finally took the plunge and picked it up. I must mention how much I love the cover for Locked In (and indeed the whole Jessica Daniel series). A big difference from the original self-published version.I've said it before but I do have a bit of a soft spot for female detectives, and it was very early on in the novel that I knew Jessica Daniel was going to be a character that I would reall [...]

    17. Very disappointing. There are too many faults to list each in detail but here are some of the problems I had with this book:- Too much telling, not enough showing (for example, a paragraph saying that there was the black humour in the squad room that would have been better explained through showing some actual black humour and showing how it allowed officers to cope with their difficult work. There are other examples such as passages explaining the relationship between various characters - don't [...]

    18. Such a good police detective story that I'll be listening to the other books in the series very soon.

    19. I right enjoyed that, I like a good who-done it, I thought I'd guessed right at one point but not even close. What made this book even better for me was that it was set in and around Manchester so I recognised a few places mentioned in the book, always good when you can actually picture the places. #Looking forward to reading more

    20. A big thank you to Netgalley, Bookouture, and Kerry Wilkinson for a copy of this ebook to read and give my honest review.This is the first book in the Detective Jessica Daniel series and also the first book I have read by Kerry Wikinson. I must say I am very impressed.This book was fast paced and hard to put down. I was guessing right up to end. I was very surprised with a revelation that was made at the end. I am looking forward to the next book in the series. I would recommend this book to any [...]

    21. Full review on novelgossipJessica Daniel has just been assigned to investigate a high profile murder case that leaves way more questions than answers in its wake. The pressure is on and Jessica has lots to prove as she’s recently been promoted after her superior, Harry was stabbed and is out on permanent leave. The odds are against her already as she’s a woman navigating the predominantly male police force, but when the questions keep piling up along with the dead bodies, she struggles to co [...]

    22. It does seem strange to be reviewing this novel as the first book in a series for its publication in USA when in the UK we are on book 10. That should be a massive indication to new readers though about just how brilliant and successful this series is. So make sure you buy and read this now and not have to play catch up when it gets further into the series.Kerry Wilkinson delivers a novel that doesn't just pose the question of why and who has committed a murder but also, How the hell is that eve [...]

    23. I would like to thank NetGalley, Bookouture and the author for my ARC copy for a fair and honest review.I happened across this book by coincidence in the NetGalley library. I had just finished reading her book Ten Birthdays and found her writing to be quite refreshing and thought "Hey, let's see how well she does with a Police Procedural/thriller." Well I can say he did not disappoint!I really seem to have a "thing" for thrillers that have wonderfully flawed characters. Whether it's the main cha [...]

    24. A police procedural set in Manchester, introducing recently-promoted Detective Sergeant Jessica Daniel. A decent start to a series but lacking the spark and pace to merit four stars. A series of murders with the same MO but no forensics and no apparent links proved problematic for the investigative team until Jessica discovers the key link.

    25. Good English thriller.Captured my attention, but some parts was slow going. Kept guessing who the bad guy was, never ever guessed it, was surprised. Getting used to how they investigate murders, police procedures definitely different in United Kingdom.

    26. Good British police procedural, realistic and I didn't work out the whodunnit until the very last. Enjoyable read, glad I have the next two in the series to look forward to.

    27. This is the first book in a series featuring DS Jessica Daniel. It's an average police thriller with an uninspiring plot. Four bodies are waiting to be discovered and at each location it is noted that all doors are locked so how did the killer enter? What if it was possible to acquire a duplicate key? As I do not want to spoil your enjoyment I will take this train of thought no further. The author does a nice job of introducing Jessica, a career minded detective, who shares a flat with her best [...]
