Publisher's Summary

In the chilling new crime novel from award-winning author Jane Casey, Detective Maeve Kerrigan and the murder squad must navigate a web of lies to discover the truth....

A murder without a body.

Eighteen-year-old Chloe Emery returns to her West London home one day to find the house covered in blood and Kate, her mother, gone. There may not be a body, but everything else points to murder.

A girl too scared to talk.

Maeve Kerrigan is young, ambitious and determined to prove she's up to her new role as detective sergeant. She suspects Chloe is holding something back, but best friend Bethany Norris won't let Maeve get close. What exactly is Bethany protecting Chloe from?

A detective with everything to prove.

As the team dig deeper into the residents of Valerian Road, no one is above suspicion. All Maeve needs is one person to talk, but that's not going to happen. Because even in a case of murder, some secrets are too terrible to share....

    "Another excellent Jane Casey thriller"

    Loved it all, bar a few glaring procedural errors which it seemed unbelievable that a bright spark like DS Kerrigan ...or indeed even a child would make as belied common sense. Tour de force performance from the dulcet toned Caroline Lennon. Great layered plot that just kept on going and enjoyed it 98% to the max minus the couple of niggles that beggared belief. Can't wait for the next one.

    Story
    "The best in this series so far. Brilliant!"
    Which character – as performed by Caroline Lennon – was your favourite?

    The narration was excellent, as is always the case with Caroline Lennon. Each character was voiced perfectly.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes! It was hard to put down.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a fabulous, engrossing read/listen. The strory is rich with layers and twists. The characters are wonderfully drawn, and very engaging as always. Maeve and Josh are on great form. The author did play a little fast and loose with clinical confidentiality (a Psychologist talking openly about the case of a live, discharged patient, to Police Officers who call in for a chat, with no Court Order), and the Data Protection Act (bank giving detailed information about a personal account, simply in reponse to a Police Officer asking)! However, although this would have grated in a book of lesser quality, I was instantly ready to suspend disbelief, due to how much I was enjoying the story.

    "Good story but not Casey's best"

    Having read all Casey's books, I found this one lacking excitement. I persevered and it got better.
    I found the Norris family very boring.

    Story
    "disappointing"

    I struggled to finish. Although its strengths lie in the authors knowledge of police procedure, I found the plot and structure of the novel as meandering, the relationship between Maeve and Derwent annoying, and unprofessional.
    Slightly concerned for Maeve as she seems to want to die, as she flings herself across train tracks, and tackles murderers single handed

    I found myself yelling at her whilst I progressed through the story, as it seemed evident of what was going to happen and she blithely walks into it..

    "Self pity!"

    I enjoyed the twists and turns of the story, particularly the unexpected ending, but disliked the self pity Maeve kept expressing. How she kept blaming herself for every little thing. I would like to see less of her arrogance in future books but it won't stop me listening.

    "I just love this series"

    What can I say, I am addicted to this series and always waiting for the next one in the series.
    I enjoy the narration and as usual the story had me not wanting to stop listening.

    I have enjoyed the development of Maeve Kerrigan's character throughout the series although she is perhaps the most unfortunate officer the Guarde have ever had. :)

    It does get a bit gruesome in places and I have to admit I sometimes fast forward a little in any scenes that might get upsetting to a dog lover like myself.
    If you are easily offended or upset by rather graphic descriptions this series is probably not for you.

    As always I cannot wait for the next one...

    "Another great Kerrigan book"
    Where does Let the Dead Speak: A Maeve Kerrigan crime thriller rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    If you've read or listened to the previous Maeve Kerrigan books, this one won't disappoint. The plot is good, and the relationship between Kerrigan and Derwent continues to deepen. I'm already looking forward to the next one.

    The narrator is excellent and the story kept me intrigued, although the pay off wasn't very satisfying.
