Product description


A Tapping At My Door is a spellbinding and spine chilling read that had me literally on the edge of my seat...It had me well and truly gripped from beginning to end. ― Bytheletterbookreviews.com Published On: 2016-03-20

As flawed heroes go, Cody is up there with the best in every sense and you'll find yourself worrying about him as much as the bloody terror he's facing. A thrilling series opener. -- Jon Wise ― Weekend Sport

I was sucked in and had tears in my eyes and a lump in my throat. At other points, I just couldn't turn the pages fast enough. Jackson's writing is flawless. Clear and concise. To the point and cuts you when you're not looking. Utterly utterly fabulous. What a way to start a series! Highly recommended. -- Rebecca Bradley ― Murder Down to A Tea Blog Published On: 2016-03-31

His writing style is brilliant and a joy to read...Jackson has created wonderful new characters with DS Cody and DC Webley. The plot of A Tapping At My Door opens in best Hitchcock tradition and moves along smoothly with enough suspense to keep the reader enthralled right until the unexpected ending ― Devoted to Thrills Blog Published On: 2016-04-03

The opening chapter of Jackson's new novel features a spine tingling level of fear that mounts at a cracking pace... Jackson's strength lies in being able to execute a challenging plot device with sensitivity, empathy and care. He's all about delivering emotional depth while entertaining his readers. ― Pam Reader Blog Published On: 2016-04-04

It takes quite a lot to render me speechless but this book did just that. There was a moment near the end that I switched off to everything around me as I wanted to give everything I had as a reader to the final few pages of the book that is definitely going to be in my Top 10 of 2016...perfection' ― My Chestnut Reading Tree Blog

A deliciously dark and compelling investigation... a well-executed thriller, with plenty of scope and a firm foundation for a projected series. ― Raven Crime Reads Blog

It's one of the few novels that I have read where I felt some empathy towards the killer and revulsion towards a victim. It's a fantastic novel, the first in a new series that has huge potential. ― Steph's Book Blog Published On: 2016-04-07

'A Tapping at my Door is a superbly written crime thriller. It is full of action, with some brilliantly drawn characters thrown into the mix. I cannot recommend it highly enough and I gave it 5 stars on Goodreads. It kept me reading late into the night. ― bibliophilebookclub.com Published On: 2016-04-10

It's a fast paced crime thriller featuring the hunt for a vengeful serial killer. Absolutely everything I love in a book! ― Damp Pebbles Blog Published On: 2016-04-11
