A serial killer with a past. A detective with a secret…

Victims are being targeted in broad daylight and people are scared to go out…
Recently promoted Detective Inspector Jessica Daniel is heading up the investigation. To unmask the culprit, Jessica must first unravel the truth behind decades of secrets.

My Rating: 4/5
First of all, look at that AMAZING cover! For me, it was love at first sight!
I need to start off by letting you know that this is the first book I’ve read by Kerry Wilkinson. I know, I know (holds head down in shame), I should have been reading them. Because of this, I went into Crossing the Line completely blind. I enjoyed it, but at times I felt a little lost. I would recommend reading the other books from the Jessica Daniel series before this one.
The author does a pretty good job of providing a background, so I wasn’t completely out of the loop. I’m not going to reveal the plot because I don’t want to give away any spoilers, but I will say that I really enjoyed this book. Jessica was a great character. At what length will she go to in order to solve the latest series of crimes??
The best thing for me was the cliff hanger. It left me with my mouth wide open and excited to read his next installment! I’ve now added a new crime series to my list of ones to follow!
