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.

    "Love this series"

    My husband and I have been listening to this series together and we love them. This one was my favorite but what makes it even better is the narrator, Sarah Coomes. I can't say enough about how she is so good at all the different voices in the books. We love her.

    "Intriguing read"

    I enjoyed this latest Kerrigan case. This was my first book of the series and I wasn't lost. Kerrigan investigates a fire and uncovers the stories of the people living there, but one victim was murdered. I also enjoyed the narration.

    "True to form"

    This book fell right in line with the rest of the series. The story was well thought out, albeit a little slow to get moving. Narration was awesome, as always!
