The Reckoning | [Jane Casey]

The Reckoning

To the public, he's a hero: a killer who targets convicted paedophiles. Two men are dead already - tortured to death. Even the police don't regard the cases as a priority. Most feel that two dead paedophiles is a step in the right direction. But to DC Maeve Kerrigan, no one should be allowed to take the law into their own hands. Young and inexperienced, Kerrigan wants to believe that murder is murder no matter what the sins of the victim. Only, as the killer's violence begins to escalate, she is forced to confront exactly how far she's prepared to go to ensure justice is served....

    "Excellent!"
    Any additional comments?

    This is the second book in the series of DC Maeve Kerrigan. The first was a 5* listen and this is even better because the characters are more developed. The criminal case is complex, intelligently written and not at all predictable. The personal lives of the main characters are rich and engaging. Excellent stuff! I'm looking forward to the third in the series.

    "Good who dunnit"

    I felt the narrative was really good and would recommend. I have read other novels by this author and was very impressed. The story is really absorbing and I just wanted to keep listening to it and the twists to the story kept me going. Would really recommend this author and books.

    "Thoroughly enjoyable"

    The plot is absorbing and well- paced. Maeve, our detective, is engaging and the progress in her personal life from the first novel is enjoyable. It is well read - I especially liked the use of a male narrator when this was appropriate. I will be downloading the next in the series immediately.

    "Quite disappointing"

    I didnt feel that Jane Casey was up to standard on this book. Maeve is a great character but I found some of the villains as very 'cardboard cut out' and predictable. I will try one more in this series and see if it gets back on track.

    "Slow to start"

    I was disappointed with this book after enjoying a previous Jane Casey book. It was slow to start and did not capture me at all. I persevered and managed to enjoy the last quarter reasonably. I know that if I had borrowed this book from the library I would not have got past the first couple of chapters.
