Publisher's Summary

London police detective Maeve Kerrigan has spent plenty of time at Murchison House. One of the many cement high-rise towers comprising the Maudling Estate housing project, Murchison House is home to a motley mix of society. From domestic abuse victims and elderly widows with nowhere else to turn to its flourishing criminal elements, Maeve is familiar with many of its occupants by name or reputation. But when a fire breaks out at Murchison House that consumes the top floors and leaves three dead, Maeve and her colleagues are startled to learn the identity of one of the victims. Geoff Armstrong was a wealthy, notoriously right-wing London politician - the last person they'd expect to find in a place like the Maudling Estate. And things get even murkier when evidence surfaces indicating Armstrong was murdered before the fire broke out. Was his death connected to the fire? To the other deaths at Murchison House? And what was he doing there in the first place? What Maeve begins to uncover will lead her on a terrifying journey through all levels of society, putting her very life in danger.

Jane Casey's next riveting mystery featuring beloved detective Maeve Kerrigan will keep listeners resisting the pause button from the opening scene to the stunning conclusion.

The best Maeve Kerrigan yet

I binge listened to this title and really enjoyed it; I could have done with slightly less pining over her ex-boyfriend, but Maeve seemed to professionally come into her own, showing confidence that was lacking in prior titles and the fire plot had enough twists and turns to keep me guessing. The narrator does a good job tackling many voices and accents and was an enhancement to the story. I'm already waiting for the next in the series!

Brilliant!

Half the pleasure in this audio book is the talent of the performance. The rest is in the characterizations and the complexity of the story. I can hardly wait to experience the rest of the series. Highly recommended. A strong female protagonist with sharp edges, deep shadows and a mature sense of self.

After the Fire

I liked this book a lot! Casey’s writing seems to get better with each book and I love the character development. I miss Rob! I miss Maeve with Rob! Derwent is growing on me, but only as Maeve’s friend. The chapter with Swain was anticlimactic. The ending was incredibly sad and I wasn’t expecting it!

Another solid book

I enjoyed this installment in the Maeve Kerrigan series. When I say it is a very solid story well told, I consider that a strong complement. I mean it's a detective story. I love the narrator.

Another good book

I really like this series. Lots of things happening in this one. Maeve and the team now have a new boss who really doesn’t like Josh. That puts him and Maeve in a tough spot. And Josh isn’t going to change his ways. A fire in a council tower, several dead including a MP, Maeve’s stalker all contribute to a rough time for the MIT team. I felt the ending was a bit disappointing but not bad. Good story, great characters, fantastic narration. I’m glad I discovered this series after 8.5 books have been released. I’m ready for the next one.

A beautifully crafted story.

This series just gets better and better. The story is a page-turner, or if you're an audiophile like me, you'll look for excuses to clean the house or exercise so you can find out what happens next. Maeve has her challenges. Derwint's character evolves. If you're a writer, you'll appreciate how neatly the plot elements dovetail into each other. Beautifully crafted and artfully read.
