His debut, LOCKED IN, the first in the detective Jessica Daniel series, is a UK no.1 Kindle bestseller, with the first three Jessica Daniel books making him Amazon UK’s top-selling author for the final quarter of 2011.
THINK OF THE CHILDREN came out in February 2013, outselling Dan Brown to become Amazon UK’s no.1 Kindle pre-order, making the top 10 crime ebooks, and entering the official top 20 paperback chart.
Kerry is the first formerly self-published British author to have an ebook no.1 and reach the top 20 of the UK paperback chart. Books five and six in the Jessica series followed, with a spin-off from PLAYING WITH FIRE – the Andrew Hunter series – beginning with SOMETHING WICKED.
Pan Macmillan (Griffin in the US) are also publishing Kerry’s young adult/fantasy/adventure series – the Silver Blackthorn trilogy. The first book is named RECKONING. The standalone dark thriller, WATCHED, and the seventh Jessica Daniel novel, BEHIND CLOSED DOORS, were his seventh and eighth consecutive top-20 Kindle crime books.
