Publisher's Summary

When 18-year-old Chloe Emery returns to her West London home she finds her mother missing, the house covered in blood. Everything points to murder, except for one thing: there’s no sign of the body.  

London detective Maeve Kerrigan and the homicide team turn their attention to the neighbours. The ultra-religious Norrises are acting suspiciously; their teenage daughter and Chloe Emery definitely have something to hide. Then there’s William Turner, once accused of stabbing a schoolmate and the neighborhood’s favorite criminal. Is he merely a scapegoat, or is there more behind the charismatic façade?  

As a body fails to materialize, Maeve must piece together a patchwork of testimonies and accusations. Who is lying, and who is not? And soon Maeve starts to realize that not only will the answer lead to Kate Emery, but more lives may hang in the balance.  

With Let the Dead Speak, Jane Casey returns with another taut, richly drawn novel that will grip listeners from the opening sentence to the stunning conclusion.

Meh. Think I’m done with this series.

I love a good crime series, especially with British narration, so I stuck with this one for a while but after this book, think I’m quitting. It started out in book 1 well but nothing really took off from there. With this installment, everything was too formulaic and there wasn’t a ton of character development for me. It just got to the point where I didn’t care whether the main characters succeeded or failed...a sure sign in any story it’s time to quit.

The narration was good/fine except for the vocalization of her male partner, the tone of which I found grating.

I enjoyed the whole series alright on the whole! Just not a top recommendation for me.
