A serial killer who wants to watch you burn.…
The media call him The Burning Man, a brutal murderer who has beaten four young women to death, before setting their bodies ablaze in secluded areas of London’s parks. And now the fifth victim has been found….
Maeve Kerrigan is an ambitious detective constable, keen to make her mark on the murder task force. Her male colleagues believe Maeve’s empathy makes her weak, but the more she learns about the latest victim, Rebecca Haworth, from her grieving friends and family, the more determined Maeve becomes to bring her murderer to justice.
But how do you catch a killer no one has seen? And when so much of the evidence they leave behind has gone up in smoke?

The story is mainly told by Maeve Kerrigan who is a strong character who though has great ambitions in the police force is a character who seems normal without major flaws which can often plague the main woman in a book.
This was a book I had listened to after 3 very ordinary stories so this for me was a good, intriguing story line with interesting characters some of whom I'd like to explore further in the next stories written by the author.
Ahh just love the lilt of the Irish.
Not necessarily but I did enjoy listening to each chapter.
"Story worth a listen"
I enjoyed this audio book and liked how the story developed. I found some of the voices used in the narration a bit annoying (occasionally),but not enough to stop my enjoyment of the listen overall. This book should appeal to any 'crime novel' fans.I would like to hear more from this author
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, it moved between 2 narrators and the story was gripping. Not too long either. I would certainly recommend it if you like modern detective stories.
