Publisher's Summary

To the public, he’s a hero: a brutal killer who targets sex offenders. To most of London’s police force, he’s the suspect in a gruesome, time-consuming case to be avoided. But to Detective Constable Maeve Kerrigan, he’s a murderer - no matter the sins of his victims - and catching him is her job.

Assigned to the case with the division’s unreadable new DI, Josh Derwent, young and inexperienced Maeve is determined to prove she has what it takes to make it as a female in the tough world of the London police. But for a killer who strikes with such spectacle, this one is proving remarkably elusive. And when Maeve learns his motive might be about exacting revenge, his acts of incredible violence move from abstract justice to the intensely personal, and become all the more terrifying. Unsure whom she can trust even within her own department, and knowing that her life is at stake, Maeve will have to decide how far she’s willing to go to ensure justice is served.

Jane Casey’s taut, brilliantly executed thriller will have listeners on the edge of their seats from the opening chapter to the stunning conclusion.

    Story
    "WoW!"
    What made the experience of listening to The Reckoning the most enjoyable?

    Ms. Coomes is an outstanding narrator and perfect for this story. Ms. Casey is a superb mystery writer and, in combination with Ms. Coomes story telling this story comes alive. One aspect of the performance I did not care for was switching the character that Ms. Coomes is representing between Rob and Mave. There is no difference in the voice so it becomes distracting. It is hard to tell who Ms. Coomes is speaking for. I would prefer that the narrator sticks to representing one character.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Reckoning?

    One very memorable moment is when Mave finds Patricia in the attic of a house that Mave and Liv broke into without a warrent. I don't want to give away the story but it will have you on the edge of your seat.


    What does Sarah Coomes bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    As I said above, Ms. Coomes is at least 50% of the success of this story. She adds the ambiance and, with her accent, you really think and feel like you are listening to Mave. She makes the story come alive.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It did not make me laugh of cry but it did keep me on the edge of my chair.


    Any additional comments?

    Great series. I hope Ms. Casey continues to add to it.

    Story
    "The second in a new police procedural series."

    The second book about Maeve, the District Constable fighting crime. In this one, she’s been assigned to a new guy who is a veteran of police procedure from another district. Maeve knows right away that this is a man who doesn’t like to work with women. He tells Maeve that he’ll do the work and the thinking and she should stay out of his way and stand around looking pretty. The two of them are to catch what appears to be a serial killer who first tortures and then kills his victims. What his victims have in common is that they are all pedaphiles with records. But now three have died.
    They have to uncover why they are being captured and killed. In the meantime a former gang boss who was thought to live out of the country comes back to find his daughter, who has either disappeared or been murdered. Very good procedural and moves the story of Maeveand Robb along.
