Description

From Kerry Wilkinson, the best-selling author of the Jessica Daniel novels, comes a new crime series.

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' last hope - but Andrew has his own problems. There's something about his assistant that isn't quite right. Jenny's brilliant but reckless, and he can't figure out what she gets from their working relationship. By the time he figures out who's a danger and who's not, it might all be too late...

Great start to a new series.

This is my first book by this author, even though I have the first 2 in his The Silver Blackthorn Trilogy, and I have to say that I really enjoyed this!

When a man turns up saying that his son went missing 9 months ago and he feels the police have lost interest in it. He wants Andrew to investigate and see can he find him. With very little clues, three fingers were all that was found, Andrew and his assistant, Jenny, set out to see what they can find. First stop, the boys then girlfriend Lara!

Character wise, I loved both of the MCs. Andrew is such an all round great guy and Jenny is such an enigma! She has a story and I can't wait to see it unfold! She is just so fearless and odd....

Plot wise, this was relatively fast paced. The focus is on the main investigation, which is filled with twists and turns, but there are some side things happening too. I was surprised with the twist near the end and totally didn't see it coming!

In all, a great start to what will hopefully be a great series. This author knows how to keep his readers hooked!!

Nigel Patterson was as good as always. He is so easy to listen to and has a pleasant voice. He has such an "English gentleman" voice!! Lol,

*I received a free copy of this from the narrator. This in no way affected my thoughts.*

Mystery thriller

Any additional comments?

This audiobook is a fast paced mystery thriller. I have to stop listening at one point while driving because I was so into the thrilling narration. I finished listening when I got home.I highly recommend.

Excellent new Mystery series

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.

Narrator
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 future Andrew Hunter Audiobooks.

Something Wicked ranks right up there with the best books. I enjoyed listening to it!

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Yes! Loads of twists & turns in this book to keep you on the edge of your seat. The cult was quite haunting.

What about Nigel Patterson’s performance did you like?

I love Nigel's voice! Even better, I love how many multiple voices he did in the bok and the sound effects he did, such as a quieter voice when thoughts were in his head & the way voices drifted off when people were talking!

It spooked me. Some parts made me laugh. I loved the detective work & all the foot trails the detective followed.

Any additional comments?

Listening to this book was great! I really enjoyed the story & plot itself along with the delivery by the narrator. Nigel breathed additional life into this story with all his voices and sounds!

Great Start to a new series

Any additional comments?

This a new author for me. I had been listening to a lot of police proceedurals and was looking for something different. This was different ,quirky and fit the bill. A private detective in Manchester England with a slightly odd assistant . Great narrator, accents are spot on. Can't wait to read the second book.
