She makes mistakes. There's also a young journalist whose getting leads from an unknown source. The murders keep coming and the police are having no luck finding a common link. I did have an inkling of the how it was happening but not the who. I liked the way Wilkinson spells out the basics of police work, including the trajectory for a DS and the grunt work that came with working your way up the ladder. Very Goldilocks, just enough to paint the picture.
The publisher has made comparisons between Wilkinson and Bryndza, Marsons and Abbott. The comparisons are accurate.
Like the other authors, Wilkinson has written an engaging mystery with a main character with whom I bonded. Looking forward to the next in the series.
My thanks to netgalley and Bookouture for a copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review. View all 4 comments.

- Jessica Daniel series: Locked In/Vigilante/The Woman in Black - Books by Kerry Wilkinson;
She is called in to investigate the murder of a woman. There are no clues, no DNA, and better yet 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 And when a third body is found in the same condition behind locked doors, Jessica's worst fears have come true Jessica has to work fast Another department is ready to take over her case and she's determined to solve it no matter the cost.
The cost might be fatal Well-written with lots of action, lots of suspects, kept me pretty much glued to the book from the very first page to the very last. Jessica is a solid character. She has some flaws.. She's not the best judge of men. But she is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to getting the bad guy and getting justice for the victims.
First off, I forgot what this book was about when I downloaded it 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 America So that's a little frustrating. By the way, the U. 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 First off, I forgot what this book was about when I downloaded it You can tell she was somewhat out of her depth with this series of murders.
She was a "real" character that you would meet anywhere and that's what I enjoyed most from this book.
Its because of Jessica that I want to read the rest of this series. I want to find out more about her and see her grow as a character and a police detective. The crimes themselves were interesting.

They weren't the most complex murders and if I'm honest, I actually kinda guessed who the murderer was half-way through the book. But in no way did it stop me from enjoying the rest of the novel. I'm usually not good at guessing right, either! View all 7 comments. Jun 18, Christine rated it liked 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 Last year I read Crossing the Line, which is book 8 in the Manchester based Jessica Daniel series and I really enjoyed it.
The killer leaves the body in a locked house and shows no obvious means of entry to the property. This is the classic locked room scenario. As further similar murders occur, Jessica is pulling out her hair trying to find how the murder victims connect. The press are not making it easy for her and someone seems to be tipping them off. In her home life, Jessica flat shares with Caroline and is single. This is a great introduction to Jessica Daniel. She is the star of the show. I hope in the following books, we get more about what makes her tick. She seemed rather fiery and blunt.
I did wonder about the level of responsibility she had in her job. Would a Detective Sergeant be leading on a case? As for the story itself, I am sure many crime fan will join the dots and work out whodunnit pretty quickly. I was instantly suspicious of a certain character and was proved right.
I was willing Jessica on to look at the simplest solution and not get caught up in the drama of the locked room mystery. A good solid start to the series and one that has a great deal to offer crime fans.

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 Detective Sergeant Jessica Daniel has been called in to head up an investigation when a body turns up inside of a locked home.
While I thought this got off to a somewhat strong start I can't say there wasn't a bit of room for improvement in the future editions with Jessica leaving me to rate this one at 3.

The story is compelling enough with a killer on the loose that somehow gets in and out of homes without a trace with no signs of a break in. I did sometimes feel though that things just didn't quite seem completely believable with a detective on a case. Also, I did have my suspicions of the killer fairly early on too but I don't believe it was completely obvious either. In the end I'd continue on with the series to see just how Jessica grows as her story continues. I received a copy from the publisher via NetGalley. Really enjoyed this book. Devoured over a few hours. Full review to come.
