The point of no return... Long before Jessica Daniel became a police detective, Manchester was a ghost city after dark. Fear ruled, and people were afraid to be out by themselves, the notorious Stretford Slasher terrorizing its inhabitants.
Now, twenty-five years on, the media are feeling nostalgic. But Jessica has a new case to worry about. Apparent strangers are being targeted in broad daylight, the attacker unworried about being caught. If only Jessica and her team could track him down...
It's the coldest spring in memory, and Jessica has old friends to look out for plus secrets--so many secrets--that should have long been buried.

This is a well read, well written series which just gets better and better. Jessica Daniels has a very nice dry sense of humour and lifts the otherwise seriousness of the topic, the banter with her colleagues are wonderful and great one liners leap out at you. I like dark humour in crime novels and I feel Kerry Wilkinson has done a wonderful job bringing Mancherster crime fighting to life.
I really enjoyed the first few books in this series, because for once it was light-hearted crime fiction with lots of humour. I'm now kind of hooked on the series, but enjoying it less and less, because it is falling into the cliché of unhappy detectives with broken relationships and bad guys on a personal vendetta against the protagonist. it's still a good read so it might deserve 4 stars, but my disappointment at the darker turns has made me go for 3 stars.
Make sure you read the series in order, as the later books give away what happened in the earlier ones!

This book pulled itself from a two to a three star review in the final hour. I have really enjoyed the series, but this one just washed-over me until the last hour when it picked-up. If I hadn't been following the series and held a soft spot for Jessica Daniel, I would have returned it as it just didn't get going for 9 hours! The last hour was unexpected, intriguing and very satisfying! I see from the reviews on Amazon that many others were disapointed to.
