After a tantalizing prologue, this story reverts to three weeks earlier, when a van transporting prisoners is hijacked and two of them escaped. Not long afterward, one is found hanging from a bridge - quite dead. This is a puzzlement for the entire Manchester Police Department, Jessica included; why on earth would someone go to the trouble of setting a prisoner free only to kill him?
Jessica's personal life is in a bit of a turmoil as well; her fiance, Adam, has been hospitalized and in a coma for months now with no sign that he'll ever recover. That notwithstanding, she's been keeping overnight company with one of her police cohorts (although in fairness, she at least has the good sense to feel guilty about it every once in a while). She's also got Bex, an abused about-to-be 18-year-old girl who's been living with Jessica while she tries to get her life back together. That takes a maudlin turn, though, when it appears a mysterious woman may be stalking Bex (or is it Jessica)? Add to the mix infighting (and a couple of murders) among casino owners - "mob" types who of course deny any involvement and don't want to play nice with the coppers - and you've got a stew of oddball situations going on at once. The fact that any one of them could go south in a New York minute keeps the action moving along quickly.
Honestly, although I do enjoy this series, I've never cared a lot for Jessica; and for sure, I don't much like Archie, her stand-in love (who comes across as more of a dolt than anything). But hey, for better or worse, it's Jessica's life - and that she's a competent enough police detective makes up for what she may lack when she finally calls it a day and goes back home. All told, then, this is a strong, easy-to-read entry in what already is a good series. Many thanks to the publisher for the opportunity to read and review it.
This one starts off with a very scary scene and you’re left wondering what to make of it. Then the story backs up several days and the action gets going.
I love Jessica. The warped thoughts in her head mirror my own. She doesn’t suffer fools and lets them know it.
There are multiple storylines going on here, both police cases and personal. All kept me equally engaged. This again ends with a cliffhanger. Ok, Kerry, hurry up and get #12 done!
In this latest installment, Jessica faces a very twisty mystery. And the author starts you off with a tremendous shock!
This is hard, fast, and extremely suspenseful. One of those edge-of-your-seat thrillers.
Now, I did know the identity of a particular person quite early. The red herrings weren’t enough to throw me off. But I also simply wanted to keep reading – just to know if I was right.
Looking forward to the next book already!

A senior citizen thinks someone is repeatedly trying to break into his home at night. He calls the department several times wanting something to be done. Although his son comes to stay with him to assure his father that he is safe, the old man rigs his own trap for the intruder. (How did the son not hear his father setting up this elaborate scheme? Would the son not have checked all the rooms and doors several times during the night to make sure there have not been intruders)?
The plot starts off with a prison van being rammed by another truck and two of the prisoners escape. Later one of the prisoners is murdered. This sets the stage for an intense investigation as to why a prisoner would be helped in an escape and then put on display during his murder. Always look to the primary reasons for murder: money, power, or family! The twists of this book are very interesting and the answers cause heartache for many families.
The author knows how to keep the reader's interest going because I have noticed a pattern of hints and clues which let you know there will be more to come in the next book. I love that we are to stay attuned!
