The Woman In Black
Someone has left a severed hand in the centre of Manchester and the only clue Detective Sergeant Jessica Daniel has to go on is CCTV footage of a woman in a long black robe placing it carefully on the ground. With a lengthy missing persons list and frantic families wondering if the body part could belong to their absent loved ones, she has plenty to deal with — and that's before a detached finger arrives for her in the post.
By the time a second hand is found and a local MP's wife goes missing, Jessica is left struggling to find out who the appendages belong to, how they are connected and just what the mysterious woman in black has to do with it all.

This is the third book by Kerry Wilkinson I have read, I am now a huge fan and I can't wait for the next one! It has all the twists and turns that you would expect of a gripping crime novel, and keeps you engrossed right to the end. I love the main character Jessica Daniels and her relationship with Rowlands: its funny and their verbal sparring is so typical of how we northerners speak, it reminds me of home.
Without giving too much away, the storyline to this novel is a warning to all those youngsters heading for a summer holiday with their mates! One person found this helpful. I Like this series of Jessica Daniels Books. I have read all three and enjoyed each one. If you ,like me,enjoy crime stories you would probably this one as well.
I believe this is a new author and I look forward to other books by him. The plot is interesting enough but Wilkinson's writing reads like something a semi-literate teenager would produce. If you can get past that, the book is an OK read.
I like his books as there is no foul language. Jessica Daniel is a writer recently unknown to me but I thoroughly enjoyed it and purchased books 1 and 2 and neither of them failed to impress me. I then purchased more books which were in her ilk. Good plot Just when you thought you figured it all out the plot turnes on you sends you in another direction and then back again.
I've read all 3 books and have enjoyed each one more than the other. A lot of great characters but most of all the sense of humour some of them have is refreshing and not overbearing. Jessica's character has grown and matured over the 3 books Enjoyed it. See all reviews from the United States. Top international reviews. This is the 3rd book in the Jessica Daniels series by author Kerry Wilkinson. I am continuing to read this series in my dis jointed way but still managing to enjoy them all the same.
When a severed hand is discovered in the centre of Manchester the solitary clue is CCTV footage of a woman in a long black robe placing the hand on the ground. With no names for the body parts, Jessica feels the strain and is beseeched by the mother of missing Lewis Barnes, who is convinced his girlfriend, twenty-six year-old January Forrester is responsible. The facts don't make sense to Jessica, who is the woman in black and what is the significance of the body parts.
Another intriguing case for Jessica Daniels with more twists, turns and red herrings making it an excellent read. Thank you for your feedback.
Sorry, we failed to record your vote. Please try again. I started reading this in the middle of the night and was very frustrated that I have to work the day after so had to put it down! The premise of the 'woman in black' is presented in a really engaging way.
It is great to meet Jessica and her colleagues again too, although the book would stand alone if you haven't read books 1 and 2 but if you haven't read them, do so- they are great.
The novel is set in Manchester so there is the added bonus of 'place spotting' if you are from the North West, although, unlike some other novels, the geographical references do not detract from the story in some novels you virtually get satnav directions for every place mentioned - not in this one! There are some carefully drawn characters and the interaction between Jessica and her colleagues is believable ; the characters seem real and natural.
Clearly there has been a lot of research done into parts of the novel but the technical bits where it is important to get police procedure right, for example , don't take the novel over. The story keeps moving and keeps you guessing, so you want to keep on reading.
I was really intrigued to find out 'whodunnit' and throughly enjoyed this novel. It certainly kept me awake at night reading it longer than I would normally be! The plot is well-paced, the writing carefully thought about and constructed. There are a few typos, but I think this is inevtable with books on Kindle where there is no external proof reading or copy-editing.
It doesn't spoil the book. Great stuff! I am looking forward to the next novels about Jessica. This series just keeps getting better More twists and turns, more dead ends and my favourite bit - a little dig at the DVLA well, I do work in the motor trade so that me chuckle! The relationship between the characters just keeps getting better, and it was nice of Caroline to make a return, but still not enough of Garry, although I am warming to Hugo nicely.
This book featured a bit more of the cops outside work and the bond between Jessica and Dave is developing well, and the new DC Izzy slotting in to the trio nicely. Their banter keeps the story light at times. The storyline flowed very well and the reveal at the end, linking little bits of story from throughout the book in the summing up, was very cleverly done, and again took me by surprise.
I liked the double storyline concept too, with Jessica mostly concentrating on the "hands" but also chipping in with the abduction case along the way. Unlike a few mainstream police procedurals I have read, this series has had the ability to grab me and take me along for the ride.
Anyhow, the one bad thing is that there is no next book ready to one-click. But there is one coming PS Cool exclusive chapter at the end. I like turtles too ;. I have enjoyed Locked In and Vigilante and now the 3rd in the series. I love books that keep you guessing right until the end as this book did.
I thoroughly enjoyed how there were a few facinating sub plots and case studies throughout. That's tricky to manage but they were successful. They were superbly planned and kept me guessing. I loved the dry and often black humour used by the characters.

Kerry Wilkinson – The Woman in Black
Third book in the Jessica Daniel Series. It can be read as a standalone, but obviously would be better read as part of the series to understand the back history and characters! In this book Jessica is trying to track down who is leaving severed hands around Manchester City Centre. Who do they hands belong to and where are the rest of the bodies?
