Présentation de l'éditeur

Following his bestselling sensation, Locked In, Vigilante is Kerry Wilkinson's unputdownable second book in the Jessica Daniel series.

Dead bodies are piling up for Detective Sergeant Jessica Daniel.

Usually when a serial killer is on the loose, the pressure would be building to find the perpetrator but the victims are all hardened criminals themselves.

The national media can't believe their luck with an apparent vigilante on the streets, while Jessica's new boss seems grateful someone else is doing their job for them.

But things aren't so straightforward when forensics matches blood from the apparent killer to a man already behind bars.

This is a story i enjoyed immensely. Kerry Wilkinson crafted it on a very fascinating premise. Characterization is good, and the story is written in a confident and engaging manner that sucks the reader in until the very end. The plot is amazing and imaginative; and it is graced by a smooth prose and effective dialogue. My second thriller after reading Triple Agent double cross. I like well-written stories with unusual settings that help us learn something new.

Vigilante is a combination police procedural and whodunit mystery. The plot kept my interest, though I wasn't particularly surprised at any point.

There were a few problem areas for me, the main one being this: The writing often dragged, offering too much detail on things that didn't matter to the story. For instance, we spend a long time at a bar playing a quiz game with the characters. I didn't need to know the questions that were asked, who answered them correctly, etc. At the same time, I didn't feel there was enough detail when it did matter. For instance, I didn't feel I ever got to know Jessica, the main character, well enough to connect with her. I wanted to feel more emotions. For instance, rather than playing the quiz game along with the characters, we could have stepped into Jessica's mind more to understand how she felt about her friends and all that was going on in her life at the time.

Overall, this is a good crime story that doesn't require a lot of emotional investment.

'Locked-In' was the first of the Jessica Daniel series, and it was an excellent police procedural/thriller/mystery. I had some concerns with Detective Constable Daniel's method of work then, and I still do, but she seems to have matured over the past few months.

Detective Sergeant Jessica Daniel works for the Greater Manchester Police force. She has recently been promoted to Detective Sargent. Her immediate boss is Detective Inspector Cole. We don't know much about him except that he has a family and is extremely organized. He prefers his desk work to the investigation of crimes. In that matter,, Daniel and Cole are extremely well suited. She loves the investigative process, letting her 'gut' run wild and her desk is one big mess.They are called out one early morning to a murder, a well known drug criminal has had his throat slit, and off they go. And, then, another criminal is killed and another, a serial killer is in the loose, and in a reversal of sorts, the community is not unhappy that the criminals are finding their end.

DS Daniel, however, and her colleagues must pursue the killer. This is a fast paced novel, with many clues that start to add up, until one such clue known only to DS Daniel stops her cold. Jessica has begun to date and her social life expands. Her life, however, centers on her work, from morning until night. Jessica is a very forward, pushy woman. She often works outside her professional realm, stepping on her colleagues toes and pushing her superiors. In the real world this would not be tolerated. However, DS Daniel is very smart, articulate and is often correct. She is not a good PR person, and has a short fuse. Will she be able to rise to the top of her career?

Kerry Wilkinson has an excellent grasp of the workings of a police force, and his characters are all so well written. This is an exciting series, and I am hoping to see DS Daniel mature further in her job. I also want the mysterious DI Cole to be revealed. Does he have any secrets to share?

I have read all the books in the Jessica Daniel series and they have all been good to very good. I have read better and I have read worse. The storyline was intriguing, however, it is not all that difficult to figure out the bait and switch. Overall a good read and I would recommend it.

Par P. Zack - Publié sur Amazon.com

I read the first Jessica Daniels book a month ago, and thought the book was fast paced, interesting, and unique. The book was an entertaining variation of a "locked door" mystery, and I found myself avidly reading until the end to get to the solution! I was very excited to have a chance to read the second in the series, and jumped into the book the second I opened the box from Amazon. Although, I enjoyed the book well enough, I have to say that this was a bit of a disappointment.

Although Jessica Daniels remains an interesting and compelling character, and her interactions with the other characters in the book are entertaining, I came away with the feeling that Wilkinson was trying too hard to follow up his first book with an equally unique premise. Although I felt the first book didn't rely too much on huge coincidences or stretches of the imagination, the solution to this one bordered on the ridiculous. I enjoyed the premise: the idea that DNA evidence connected a recent series of murders to someone firmly behind bars. But the resolution was both obvious, and felt contrived at the same time. Of all the possible solutions to this mystery the simplest also happens to be the most ridiculously unlikely. I can't say more without giving away essential plot details, but I was was frustrated with the solution.

I detest the idea that some major character needs to be killed off on a regular basis to keep a series interesting and relevant. In To me, this made a already far fetched story even more ridiculous. I'll be vague as to not give anything away, but in the first book someone close to Jessica is involved in a threatening situation as a result of her murder investigation. Now, in this book, one of the supporting characters ends up killed off! I guess just being close to Jessica increases your risk of harm, because I can think of no other practical reason why two people closely involved in Jessica's life could be involved tragically in a span of only 18 months.

Lastly, the subplot involving Jessica's suspicion about her boss was, quite frankly, stupid. I understood within the first few pages what was going on in that situation, and if Jessica was half the investigator she is supposed to be, she would also have seen the answer right away. The answer was obvious. Jessica's interpretation of the events shows that she spends too much time indulging in fantasy and conspiracy theories, and makes her very unbelievable as a good investigator.

Having said that, this was a decent read if you already know the characters and want to revisit them. But if this had been my first experience with the series, I would not be back to read any more. As it stands, I will probably read the third book just to see if the author can turn this series back in the right direction.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A solid mystery 2 mai 2014

The DNA under the fingernail of the murder victim leads to an incarcerated felon. How could someone simultaneously be in prison and out killing criminals? I love the way Kerry Wilkinson is using such classic, albeit updated, puzzles in his mysteries.

This is the second of the Jessica Daniels stories and I have to say I am glad to have found such an engaging character and mystery solver and to have a lot of books to catch up with! This is the kind of character who, faced with impending doom solving a case, acknowledges the possibility of having a slip-and-fall on the wet floor on her way into the police station - just to get out of the case. I have seen some reviewers refer to Jessica Daniels as a brat, and well, that's also possible, but not necessarily a character flaw.

The Jessica Daniels Series:
Locked In (Jessica Daniel Book 1)
Vigilante (Jessica Daniel Book 2)
The Woman in Black (Jessica Daniel Book 3) is available as a paperback or audible book. (Hopefully that is to be issued soon as a kindle book?)
Books 4-5-6 are collected in one kindle book: DS Jessica Daniel series: Think of the Children / Playing with Fire / Thicker Than Water - Books 4-6
Book 4. Think of the Children
Playing with Fire (Jessica Daniel Book 5)
Thicker Than Water (Jessica Daniel Book 6).
As If By Magic (A Jessica Daniel Kindle Exclusive), seems to be an unnumbered novella, and a stand-alone story.

Americans seem to be slightly behind, at least in this respect, in the release of the Jessica Daniels series. Some things must just be borne.
