Publisher's Summary

They think they are safe at home. Someone knows better. When a body is found in a locked house, Detective Sergeant Jessica Daniel is left to not only find the killer but discover how they got in and out. With little in the way of leads and a journalist who seems to know more about the case than she does, Jessica is already feeling the pressure - and that's before a second body shows up in identical circumstances to the first.

How can a murderer get to victims in seemingly impossible situations and what, if anything, links the bodies?

    "Excellent book plenty to keep you enthralled"
    Where does Locked In rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I've just started listening to the audio books so it's high on my list, but it's such and easy way to do the ironing and be whisked away into the story


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jessica as I can totally relate to her! She portrayed as being human which is nice, making mistakes and then rectifying them


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    Ones with Jessica and Dave


    Any additional comments?

    Kerry Wilkinson is a very good story teller, leaves you wanting to now what happening next

    Story
    "Simply Brilliant!"

    There is a previous reviewer on here who marked this book down because s/he didn't like the way it was narrated; said that it was read like a mother reading to a child! I wish my mother had read to me in that manner! My solution was to play the sample to see if I could handle the voice, style and, story. I'm glad that I did!

    If you are a fan of the Peter James 'Roy Grace' novels, then, in DS Jessica Daniel, is a Manchester equivalent, in terms of style, procedures, characters and complexity/simplicity of story.

    Many previous reviewers said that they didn't have a clue during the collection of evidence, who the perpetrator could be. It was that well written. The irony is, that even the author told us about it: misdirection! Simply Brilliant! Enjoy!

    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters were very well drawn. I really felt that I came to know Jessica as a strong, but real career woman.


    Have you listened to any of Becky Hindley’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    This is the first performance by Becky Hindley for me. She was excellent!


    Any additional comments?

    This was a great book. My first from this author, but certainly not my last. It was gripping and pacy from start to finish. The narration was also excellent. A very satisfying listen/read.

    "Definitely worth a listen."

    I enjoyed the way the characters were developed in this book. The story was good, interesting and well told.
    While the main character, Jessica Daniel, is portrayed, I believe, as unnecessarily angry, I enjoyed the book immensely.

    "A good yarn"
    Would you listen to Locked In again? Why?

    Yes, I would. Mainly to spot the clues!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Easy to listen to. Liked the characters. Good story.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    The ending was good. By which I don't mean that I was pleased to get to the end!!


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Enjoyable.


    Any additional comments?

    I agree with others that the grammar could do with a tidy up, but the story rolled along well. Already on the second one and enjoying that too.

    I liked the narrator.

    "A bit formulaic but well narrated."
    Any additional comments?

    Somehow I guessed "whodunnit" early on but have been proved wrong in the past. It is possible I have read too many thrillers and wonder exactly what it is that makes a thrilling read? The big difference in this book was that the police chief turned out to be supportive and gave praise. I liked the main character although, again, the feisty sweary girlie cop theme could wear thin. I know this is a first of a series but don't know if I would try another one. But then again.................

    "Great listen!"

    I really enjoyed this book. The narrator was excellent. She really brought the main character Jessica to life. Self-deprecating, sarky and frankly, not the smartest detective, Jessica is not sweet or particularly likable character but she is believable and very entertaining. The plot was good, not very intriguing but it still kept me interested to the end. The story does offer and excellent depiction of Manchester and British culture through the characters in the book. It was spot on, showing a really appreciation for the humour in ordinary British life. This is likely my first of many Jessica Daniel novels.
