He meets women. He gains their trust. He kills them. That's all Maeve Kerrigan knows about the man she is hunting.
Three women have been strangled in their homes by the same sadistic killer. With no sign of a break-in, every indication shows that they let him in. But the evidence is pointing at a shocking suspect : DI Josh Derwent, Maeve's colleague.
Maeve refuses to believe he could be involved, but how well does she really know him? Because this isn't the first time Derwent's been accused of murder...

I have enjoyed all of Jane Casey's Maeve Kerrigan series but feel that this is definitely her most accomplished yet. The plot is much tighter and relies less on cliches than some of her previous novels. Caroline Lennon narrates excellently as usual and I found it to be compulsive listening.

Tremendous writing. Compelling.
I laughed out loud when Maeve asked a 'posh' woman "Did she have a regional accent? No, she was normal"!
The series of novels featuring DC Maeve Kerrigan is just fantastic. It goes the extra mile to many crime novels in creating great richness and depth to the characters. This, like the others has some gruesome descriptions, but also beautifully written friendship, love and rivalries. I worried for the characters, I feared some and I often laughed. All human life is here.
So much better than most of the other thrillers out there, fab narration and a story with more twists and turns than a game of snakes and ladders. Cannot wait to start the next one in the series though each is a stand alone.
The plot, the endless hours of dialogue that has nothing to do with enhancing the story.
Very thin story line.
Lack of pace
I thought that given the material she did well enough
At least 50%
Definitely but only in order as all the Maeve Kerrigan books are well worth listening to.
Maeve herself, she is so real, not perfect but no glaring deficiencies either.
Just love her accent and the characterisation she manages to convey so well.
I certainly could have if time allowed, didn't take long anyway.
Have just downloaded Maeve book 5 so can't stop, I have a book to listen to!
