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.

    It worries me that despite being unable to kill a fly I have a rather macabre love of mystery, murders and suspense.

    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..

    "no mystery here!"

    I found this book such a let down. I knew who ,what and why! way before halfway through the book. The attempt at hints were neon flashing announcements! for me this made it very boring. I listened to the end hoping I was going to be gripped. I was barely touched !
