Perfect Ten. A debut novel set in Manchester by Jacqueline Ward

I’m Jacqueline Ward, a writer from Manchester. I write novels and screenplays, and provide writing services as The Story Psychologist – I am also a fully qualified psychologist. I have written a set of novels located in Manchester and Oldham in the DS Jan Pearce series. My latest novel, out this week is Perfect Ten from Corvus Atlantic Books. It is a novel set in Manchester, much of it on the tram system, making one reviewer dub it ‘Girl on the Tram’! Here’s the blurb:

An explosive debut thriller about one woman’s search for revenge – and the dangerous chain of events she sets in motion…

Caroline Atkinson is powerless and angry. She has lost more than most – her marriage, her reputation, even her children. Then one day, she receives an unusual delivery: lost luggage belonging to the very man who is responsible, her estranged husband Jack.
In a leather holdall, Caroline unearths a dark secret, one that finally confirms her worst suspicions. Jack has kept a detailed diary of all his affairs; every name, every meeting, every lie is recorded. He even marks the women out of ten.
Caroline decides it’s time to even the score. She will make this man pay, even if it means risking everything…

I love Manchester and everything about it, and all my work revolves around the interesting people and places around this area.
