Jane Casey's books don't just stick to one investigation they are realistic and there are a number of things going on in the Met at the same time. Maeve is still coping with her arrogant boss Derwent and her personal life isn't quite as good as she'd hoped but she fights on with spirit. The police characters are well defined the cases to be solved have the feel of authenticity without boring us with paperwork etc. The secondary characters were all sufficiently awful to provide many suspects to consider. The only reason why I didn't give this book 5 stars was because I didn't find this case quite as exciting as those in the previous books but being well written the story flowed along leaving the reader to ponder who did it and why!
Identifying who the intended victims of the incident were is far from clear, and with suspicions surrounding Kennford's actions, the question remains why was Lydia unharmed? Met by a wall of silence as they try to make a breakthrough on the case neither Kennford nor his sister-in-law Renee seem keen to talk and along with the evidently fragile and uncommunicative Lydia. Gaining a foothold on the dynamics at play in the family home is no easy business.Read more ›
When Vita Kennford and her 15-year-old daughter Laura are found dead, Maeve and her colleagues have to decide whether they were the real targets or whether someone had been out to get revenge on Philip Kennford, amoral barrister and serial adulterer. This is in many ways a rather traditional detective story with suspicion falling on a small cast of suspects all connected to the victims in some way. Again a pleasant change from the serial killer/gangland crime that has overshadowed the murder mystery genre in recent years. There are shades of the Christie country house mystery here, and that's high praise from a dedicated Christie fan like myself.
The book is told in the first person, so we are treated to a DC-eye view of detection and to Maeve's rather wicked form of observational humour. We see Maeve's relationships with her colleagues develop, particularly with her DI, Josh Derwent, an unreconstructed male chauvinist but with a soft side that makes him an enjoyable character nonetheless. There are a couple of running threads from the two previous Kerrigan books, The Burning and The Reckoning, so though this works well as a stand-alone novel, I would recommend new readers to read them in order to get the full background.Read more ›
