Crossing the Line

4.25 based on 288 ratings & 57 reviews on


From Kindle number one bestselling author, Kerry Wilkinson, Crossing the Line is a darkly gripping novel where Jessica Daniel faces her toughest investigation yet.

Long before Jessica Daniel became a police detective, Manchester was a ghost city after dark. Fear ruled as people were afraid to be out by themselves, the notorious Stretford Slasher terrorizing its inhabitants.

Now, twenty-five years on and the media are feeling nostalgic. But Jessica has a new case to worry about. Apparent strangers are being targeted in broad daylight, the attacker unworried about being caught. If only Jessica and her team could track him down . . .

It's the coldest spring in memory and Jessica has old friends to look out for, plus secrets - so many secrets - that should have long been buried.
