Présentation de l'éditeur

Something Wicked is the first in a breath-taking series from Kerry Wilkinson, creator of the bestselling Jessica Daniel books.

Nicholas Carr disappeared on his eighteenth birthday and the world has moved on. His girlfriend has left for university, his friends now have jobs and the police are busy dealing with the usual gallery of suspects.

But his father, Richard, can't forget 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 return home?

A private investigator is Richard's last hope - but Andrew Hunter 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's in it for her. By the time he discovers who's a danger and who's not, it might all be too late . . .

Best-selling author Kerry Wilkinson has kindly forwarded me an advanced review copy of his latest thriller 'Something Wicked' in exchange for an honest review. Now that I have read it I feel very grateful as I really enjoyed reading this book.

Andrew Hunter is a private investigator and a very likable character but with his share of skeletons in the closet. He works in the Greater Manchester area with his assistant, the somewhat mysterious Jenny, who keeps her life to herself. Although young, she seems to be fearless and surprisingly capable of doing every job handed to her both at the office and out while prowling the streets.

One day, a man walks into Hunter's office, pleading him to help him find his son. Nicholas Carr went missing nine months earlier on the night of his eighteenth birthday after a night out with his girlfriend Lara. He never made it back home that night and has not been seen since. The police have been unable to locate the young man. They only managed to find three of his fingers in the woods. A search for his body in that area yielded nothing. The grieving man and his wife have had no closure and are desperate to know what happened to their son.

Andrew and Jenny immediately begin their investigation, however from the outset they are not sure how they'll ever succeed where the police with all its means has otherwise failed. As they begin to delve in the life of Nicholas and Lara, they however realise that these young people were getting involved into something really wicked and with people far more dangerous than what they could have ever imagined.

I really wasn't expecting the direction taken by the story through Hunter's investigation and couldn't certainly have predicted the dramatic twist towards the end of the book.

Kerry Wilkinson is famous for his best-selling Jessica Daniel series, however since I have not yet read any of those books I'm not in any position to compare them to 'Something Wicked'. All I can say is that this book is not a police procedural but a missing person investigation. It is a very enjoyable, fast-paced read full of engaging characters and realistic dialogue.

The final chapter of the book sets off the scene for the beginning of another story, so I am now really looking forward to reading the second instalment in the Andrew Hunter series.

Format: Broché
Until I read Something Wicked, I’d never heard of Kerry Wilkinson. Then, amazed at how good the book was and wondering why I’d never heard of him, I did some research. It turns out that Wilkinson’s personal successes in the writing field are just as exciting and surprising as the novel.

Wilkinson self-published his first DI Jessica Daniels book in 2011, which became a bestseller in England almost overnight. He followed that up with eight more Daniels books, two stand-alone crime novels, a YA fantasy trilogy, and Something Wicked, the first book in the Andrew Hunter series.

All while serving as a journalist and a magistrate. Four years…fifteen novels. Wilkinson is talented and prolific. Doubtless his two other jobs aid and abet his creative output, but he’s accomplished some amazing work in a short time.

Andrew Hunter was first featured in a DI Jessica Daniels novel, Playing With Fire. Wilkinson liked the character and decided to do more with him. Readers don’t have to read that book to enjoy this one (I didn’t, but I have gone back and queued up the other books to read in order).

Wilkinson’s writing is smooth and easy to grasp, and it’s in a conversational tone that makes the pages so easy to turn. Add to that, the author’s natural sense of pacing and love of riddles and mysteries kept me nailed to the pages. I read the book in two sittings, and only because I started the book late, intending to only read a few chapters. The spirit was willing but the flesh was weak. I finished it up the next morning.

Andrew Hunter is in his mid-thirties, a guy who’s been knocked around a bit by life and still has some deep-seated guilt (part of the mystery and confusion I love about the character). He’s partnered with a younger woman named Jenny who’s every bit as clever and interesting as he is (and I won’t reveal any more because those are Wilkinson’s surprises to spring.)

At first I thought the mystery was pretty simple and straight-forward. Just a simple case of a missing person and backtracking the trail till answers were found. I was totally happy with that. Then things took a turn I didn’t see coming, and I’m betting most readers won’t either, although the foundation is laid in the novel.

Knowing this is the first book of a series means the character gets out alive at the end, but there are a lot of personal mysteries revealed, some status quo changes, and a huge cliffhanger at the end (nothing to do with the mystery in this book because that is solved) that has me on tenterhooks for the next book to see how things proceed.

As I read the novel, I couldn’t help thinking how this character, his partner, and their world could easily translate into a television series for the BBC. I’d watch it.

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.

Enjoy reading.

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

My Review

I'd been looking for a long time, searching for a new Mystery / Crime series to enjoy. Then one day whilst browsing through Free Audiobook Giveaways (a Facebook group) there it was; amongst all the books about shifters, sliders vampires and sci fi, shining through like a diamond on a beach full of pebbles was The Offer: Kerry Wilkinsons' Something Wicked, offered by the narrator, Nigel Patterson in return for a review.
I knew I would like this story as soon as I heard Nigel Patterson acting the role of the radio announcer with the fake American accent. The next hook was the car pursuit of the wily and underestimated Stuart Deacon in his Audi, this was also my introduction to Andrew, the little bit seemingly boring P.I., and his lively assistant Jenny.
It would be difficult to add to the publishers blurb without spoilers, so I won't, but needless to say, there are many twists to this story. The beauty of it is though, is that this is the first story of a series, and as such, cleverly lays the foundations for future stories.
Now what about Jenny? Well, being the assistant to a private investigator, we know that she is bound by the laws of crime fiction to be clever and quick witted, and also to be very good with computers. She is all of these, yet Jenny is also a Very Odd Person, and I look forward to reading or listening to her story. Oh, and does she have a surname or is that a part of her mystery? I can't recall hearing one on my audiobook.
As for her boss, Andrew Hunter, seems he's a bit of a mystery himself. I quite liked him, but at one point in the story he really went down in my estimation. However, later, when he'd proved that he could man up, he redeemed himself! I'm very much looking forward to his future story.
I would never have believed I could like anything originating from the pen of a Sports Writer, but this is a thumping good story, tip top, and well suited to audio.

Narration
Much of the success of an audiobook is, of course, dependant on the quality of the narration. For me, the best of the best narrators are the one who, when within a few moments of listening, one just doesn't notice them any more. The voice is pleasant, the rythymn and pace is just right, as are the accents and characterisations. There is nothing to jolt the listener away from the story and back to reality. Surely, this is how it should be? Such is their talent, that they can make or break an audiobook. Nigel Patterson is up there with the best of them, I fervently hope that the author and publishers continue to work with him for all the Andrew Hunter Audiobooks.

HASH(0x8ef02024) étoiles sur 5 Excellent New Series 6 juin 2014
Par Susan Miles - Publié sur Amazon.com

Kerry Wilkinson is the author of the well written Jessica Daniels series. I specialize in reading British female police procedurals. Since I am already a fan of his books, I tried Something Wicked, a new series starring Andrew Hunter. It is an excellent book about a private investigator with a difficult past and his assistant who has an intriguing personality. The case involves the occult and a missing person with a philanderer thrown in. I definitely did not see the end coming (and I am usually pretty good at this). I highly recommend this book as well as the Jessica Daniels series and look forward to Andrew Hunter's next case.
