Publisher's Summary

Their job is to investigate crime - not become the victims... A killer is terrorising London but this time the police are the targets. Urgently re-assigned to investigate a series of brutal attacks on fellow officers, Maeve Kerrigan and her boss Josh Derwent have little idea what motivates the killer's fury against the force. But they know it will only be a matter of time before the killer strikes again.

Not What I Was Expecting in the 5th Kerrigan Novel

I actually put this book down in the middle because I had convinced myself that I knew What was going to happen. I picked it up again because it was just the right length for a cold winter's drive. I was wrong. Casey came up with an interesting plot that I enjoyed listening to.

Cops are being killed. The unit that Maeve Kerrigan works in is brought in to deal with this unthinkable series of deaths.

I don't want to give anything away except to say expect the unexpected.

The narrator as usual is excellent.

Loved it!

The story progresses and is still great! I love the characters, they continue to develop. The narration is great too this reader never leaves me bored or wanting to shut it off. She is able to do great inflections and changes between characters seamlessly. I'm in love and desperately want book 6. Come on guys!

Disappointing

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

No, the character development of a female cop is not there. The text reads more like a romance novel than a crime story.

Would you be willing to try another book from Jane Casey? Why or why not?

Maybe, but I will get it from the library.

How could the performance have been better?

The reader had all her accents mixed up. Most of the characters sounded like Northern Irish. The men sounded constipated. Really bad.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Netflix

Any additional comments?

I hope her next one is better and read by somebody else.

Back to Business!

I loved this installment. The banter between our heroes is back! Real detective work, some personal evolution, and a clutching story makes this a great listen. I am truly a fan of the series and have become attached to Maeve & Josh.

It's been a while since I liked a book this much!

If five stars is the best I can give, this book gets six! The next in the series has a lot to live up to!

Another Great Addition to this Series!

Would you listen to The Kill again? Why?

Probably not, but that's just because I rarely listen to books twice, particularly mysteries. I definitely thought it was a gripping book.

What did you like best about this story?

I like the way the characters develop and how their relationships evolve.

Which character – as performed by Sarah Coomes – was your favorite?

Derwent is probably my favorite.

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

No, but I listened to it fairly quickly, it was that absorbing.

Another great book in the series

I love getting frustrated with Maeve's need to be independent. She's already independent and what it really is for her is stubbornness and insecurity. She's a great character and she grows up a little more with each book

Sophomoric Dialogue and Frightful Narration

What would have made The Kill better?

I need at least one character that I can identify or has some qualities that I have experienced in other people. Not a one. Very immature.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The female narrator did a laughable male impression. It just didn't work.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

I didn't finish it because it was boring. Very little happened and the relationships were weird.

Any additional comments?

I won't purchase any more books by this author or narrator.
