Locked In

Tell Me A Story - Book Review

Author - Kerry Wilkinson
Title - Locked In
Stars - 3

Locked In
When Detective Sergeant Jessica Daniel is promoted at work it comes with the realization she is supplanting her mentor, stabbed in a bar fight. She hardly has time to establish herself in the job when a body is found in a locked house with no obvious way in or out.

With a car that junior officers joke about, and an investigation with no leads, Jessica thinks she has enough on her plate, when a second body turns up in identical circumstances to the first.

How can a killer get to quarries in impossible situations and what links the bodies?

 

If you’re looking for a case for trying a new author, then Locked In almost provides it. This is a detective crime story that hits the right balance between the detective and the crime itself.

A high-speed but down-to-earth storyline, and care with detail makes Locked In a notable book.
However, it is let down with irritating editing slipups that for me spoil what could have been a good read.

That's too bad. The premise sounds interesting.
