Book Review: Vigilante [Jessica Daniel #2] by Kerry Wilkinson
I first found Kerry Wilkinson via his young adult series, Silver Blackthorn. Since then I've slowly been reading his Jessica Daniel series. I read the first book last year and loaned the second from my library, but I never got around to reading it. When I saw Vigilante on NetGalley I had to try and get a request in, even though I didn't meet the requirements, and was thankfully granted my request.
I have really enjoyed reading the Jessica Daniel series so far. I'm not a big reader of crime books, but with having this series set not too far from myself, but also in a similar area, it makes it more relatable and 'real' to me. I find it easy to picture the surroundings, the run down areas, and the people who live there. I like that I have to think, and try to decipher the clues and hints, trying to figure out what is going on and who is the killer. I love Jessica as a character and the relationship she has with her co-workers. She thinks on her feet, but also looks into things, not taking anything at face value.
Vigilante itself is a gripping read that keeps you turning pages as each new clue is given, or something is thrown into the mix to make you second guess everything you thought you knew. The ending was not something I saw coming, both in the turn of events as well as the culprit.
Vigilante is another great installment in this series and I am eager to continue with Jessica as soon as possible.
