A violent rapist is attacking women, leaving them for dead on south London streets. When young policewoman Maeve Kerrigan responds to a domestic disturbance, she's horrified to stumble across the latest victim.

Waste of time & $

I've listened to all the Mauve Kerrigan books which I enjoyed. I picked this up because it was half price. Basically, it was a waste of time. Not sure why the author bothered.

Save your time and credits

The story is latter day Nancy Drew with some high school petting thrown in. The narrator reminded me of Bette Davis with her clipped words and what is apparently her idea of a posh British accent. The the most egregious transgression occurred when she was speaking dialogue for a visiting higher echelon police officer with celebrity status and rather dashing physical attributes. She made him sound like an octagenarian pensioner with longstanding COPD. Weak novel, weak narrator.

Dreadful narration made it hard to finish

I bought this for a few dollars, then I realized, much to my dismay, it was narrated by Sarah Coomes. Eeeeek! Her voice is annoying and clipped. I’ve had the misfortune of listening to her before. I wasn’t expecting any improvement; I was right. Actually, Coomes narration is worse than what I remember if that is possible. But the story looked good and it was short book, so I decided to gave it a chance by new author to me, Jane Casey. It was most likely a suspenseful murder mystery but it was painful listening to Coomes. I tried to finish, but all I heard was “blah-blah-blah.”

Enjoyed this story

This is my first Jane Casey book and I enjoyed it. Seems like a plot that could have been drawn our into a full length book. Can't wait to read more about Maeve Kerrigan!

This Short Story, Lacks A Good Story

I find the narrator’s voice to be charming and it is pleasant to listen to her tell this story. However, I find the story line lacking and the characters predictable and uninteresting.

Nothing special and a bit gross.

I listened to half of this and tried to delete it.
Not my cup of tea.

A good beginning

A short intro to Maeve’s beginning as a police constable. I read this after I’ve read all the books in the series (to date) and it showed how Maeve’s work ethic was developed. It was enjoyable.
