Where does Locked In rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I've just started listening to the audio books so it's high on my list, but it's such and easy way to do the ironing and be whisked away into the story
Who was your favorite character and why?
Jessica as I can totally relate to her! She portrayed as being human which is nice, making mistakes and then rectifying them
Which scene did you most enjoy?
Ones with Jessica and Dave
Any additional comments?
Kerry Wilkinson is a very good story teller, leaves you wanting to now what happening next

There is a previous reviewer on here who marked this book down because s/he didn't like the way it was narrated; said that it was read like a mother reading to a child! I wish my mother had read to me in that manner! My solution was to play the sample to see if I could handle the voice, style and, story. I'm glad that I did!
If you are a fan of the Peter James 'Roy Grace' novels, then, in DS Jessica Daniel, is a Manchester equivalent, in terms of style, procedures, characters and complexity/simplicity of story.
Many previous reviewers said that they didn't have a clue during the collection of evidence, who the perpetrator could be. It was that well written. The irony is, that even the author told us about it: misdirection! Simply Brilliant! Enjoy!

I really enjoyed this book. The narrator was excellent. She really brought the main character Jessica to life. Self-deprecating, sarky and frankly, not the smartest detective, Jessica is not sweet or particularly likable character but she is believable and very entertaining. The plot was good, not very intriguing but it still kept me interested to the end. The story does offer and excellent depiction of Manchester and British culture through the characters in the book. It was spot on, showing a really appreciation for the humour in ordinary British life. This is likely my first of many Jessica Daniel novels.
