The novel starts with Rose waking in her car in the middle of the night. She’s in the middle of nowhere, there’s blood on the hood and windshield but no sign of any dead deer or other creature. She can’t remember how she got there. Maybe because I’m at an age when my memory SUCKS, I love narrations where the main character ...more

Thereafter strange things start happening to her: her work pass disappears and reappears, her keys end up in strange ...more
Kerry Wilkinson does a good job creating an interesting, unlikable, and unreliable character here with our main character Rose. A dense fog soon fell over us in the coulee as we tried to piece ...more

It's in the corner, a few speckled spots and then a thicker pool towards the bottom. . . How to explain what I’m seeing?

This is a standalone story from this author who has previously written a great series too.
It starts off very dramatically where Rose wakes in a ditch at the wheel of a car. This was the start of what I can say was an action packed read, thought provoking from start to finish.
She had been on a business trip.
We later find out what happened as the story goes back in parts then forward in time so we get to meet this in the middle. The author has cleverly lead me along a path he wanted me to ...more

I generally like Kerry Wilkinson books, but in the recent times, the level of intrigue in his prose is going way down. Giving in to popular style of writing, a main character who is a total ditsy with disjointed way of talking and thinking, I was pretty much bored with her thoughts throughout the book... And she thinks and thinks and thinks.
Rose finds ...more

Last Night is my first Kerry Wilkinson book and it looks like I have even more to add to my TBR list. A standalone psychological thriller that kept me up late reading because I couldn’t put it down. The opening was BAM IN YO’ FACE… with main character Rose waking up with blood all over her car and struggling to remember what has happened. Totally hooked me right off the bat!
Rose Denton wakes up behind the wheel of her car in the middle of nowhere, with absolutely no idea how she got there. She was in a hotel, wasn’t she? Why is she in her car? What’s all that blood on the bonnet and the windscreen? It’s not hers, thankfully, but it ...more

This one is, apart from the thriller aspect, a lot about relationships. Very recognizable.
Things were not so rosy in the Denton household. From the outside it seemed all was well, but what happened on that night? She crashed her car, or did she? They got burgled, or did they? Things in the kitchen drawer weren’t there, then they were. Is it coincidence, a set-up? Rose is turning into a paranoid wreck. It drew me in, keen to get to the bottom of each family member, their friends, their colleagues.
It’s the first book I’ve ...more
