Présentation de l'éditeur

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

Nicholas Carr disappeared on his 18th birthday and the world has moved on. His girlfriend has gone to university, his friends have got jobs, the police have other things to look into.

But his father, Richard, is still stuck on 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 come home?

Private investigator Andrew Hunter is Nicholas's last hope - but Andrew has his own problems. There's something about his brilliant assistant, Jenny, that isn't quite right: her old teacher called it Empathy Deficit Disorder but perhaps it's not just other people she struggles to feel for?

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.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Haunting Tale! 8 septembre 2014
Par Terri B. - Publié sur Amazon.com
I listened to this book via audible.com. I truly enjoyed listening to this story, narrated by Nigel Patterson. Nigel added so many different voices and sound effects to this book totally bringing it to life!
Something Wicked is a story about a young man who disappeared on his eighteenth birthday. With loads of twists & turns , this plot doesn't disappoint. I was surprised when I heard the ending. I surely didn't see that coming. (So sorry, I can't spoil it for anyone).
In this day & age, I am always surprised to hear about the goings on with cults. I find the thoughts themselves pretty creepy. Hopefully , I will never see it in real life.
This book did keep me on the edge of my seat. The author, Kerry Wilkinson did a great job in this creative story! It totally blew my mind. The narrator, Nigel Patterson was awesome with his multiple voices and sound effects he added to it. Kudos to both of your for your creativity!

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.
