A TAPPING AT MY DOOR DAVID JACKSON

When police are called to a murder scene in the Liverpool suburbs, even the most jaded officers are disturbed by what they find.

DS Nathan Cody, still bearing the scars of an uncover mission that went horrifyingly wrong, is put on the case. But the [police have no leads, except the body of a bird and the victim’s  missing eyes.

And then the killer strikes again, and Cody realises the threat isn’t to the people of Liverpool after all it’s to the police.

MY REVIEW

 How can I possibly put this into words just how much I Loved this story. It’s frightening. In a dressing gown, watching television and drinking wine. Policewoman Terri Latham hears a tapping , scratching, scrabbling noise at the back door. In bare feet and her dressing gown on she goes to investigate what is making the noise. PC Terri feels something hard and heavy ramming into her skull, and her throat is cut. The police find a large black bird at the scene with a scrap of paper wrapped around the birds scrawny leg with the printed text Nevermore. Was the bird left there as message? Why was she killed? Could it be something in PC Terri Latham’s past, something she did or that the killer believes she did? I had never heard of David Jackson until I came across A Tapping At My Door. I enjoyed reading this novel so much, I need to read all David Jackson’s other novels.  A Tapping At My Door is another great novel by Zaffre books.
