Something Wicked is the first in a breath-taking series from Kerry Wilkinson, creator of the bestselling Jessica Daniel books.
Nicholas Carr disappeared on his eighteenth birthday and the world has moved on. His girlfriend has left for university, his friends now have jobs and the police are busy dealing with the usual gallery of suspects.
But his father, Richard, can't forget 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 return home?
A private investigator is Richard's last hope - but Andrew Hunter 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's in it for her. By the time he discovers who's a danger and who's not, it might all be too late . . .
Kerry Wilkinson is something of an accidental author. His debut, Locked In, the first title in the detective Jessica Daniel series, was written as a challenge to himself but, after self-publishing, it became a UK Number One bestseller within three months of release and the series as a whole has sold over one million copies. Kerry has written a fantasy-adventure trilogy for young adults, a second crime series featuring private investigator Andrew Hunter, plus the standalone thriller, Down Among The Dead Men. Originally from the county of Somerset, Kerry has spent far too long living in the north of England, picking up words like 'barm' and 'ginnel'. When he's short of ideas, he rides his bike or bakes cakes. When he's not, he writes it all down.
