Co on the track of a serial killerHowever she is ut in a difficult osition when it becomes clear to her that the Margery Meets the Roses prime suspect is Derwent himselfI adored this book for many reasons Firstly the series main characters are all so very good and much as I have a crush on Derwent Maeve is just as loveable I especially like her ironic andlausible outlook on her own syche and actions often telling herself off as she dives head first into a situation she KNOWS she should avoidand the way she tends to just fall into the eople who are eventually going to become important to her and gives them The Wapshot Scandal pieces of her soul without even realising she is doing it As someone who often has those lightbulb moments herself I can relate As for Josh Derwent well He is difficult to describethe best I can do You know that silly game youlay with friends called Marry Sleep with or Kill well in the book world Josh Derwent would be my answer to all three Really And he s getting a bigger role in each novelthis one was as described to me by the author Wall to Wall Derwent and that made me one happy reader The aptly named Godley is also a treat as he tries to keep the unruly The NIGHT.

Ve Jane Casey would trash Derwent the foil that keeps Maeve on her toes and guides her growing expertise in her career Not yet at least Derwent is just too important a character to have sitting in The Old Bailey waiting to swing from the gallows hide spoiler This was my first book by Jane Casey and I loved it I jumped in halfway through the series but it didn t matter at all There are hints at backstory but this book can easily be enjoyed as a standalone and I m very much looking forward to going backwards and forwards and reading the rest of the series Jane has a no nonsense easy to read style that makes the Witchcraft for Tomorrow pages turn uickly The characterisation is superb especially Maeve and Derwent but also the minor characters good and bad and there are some gripping setieces such as the scene bad and there are some gripping set ieces such as the scene the ark halfway through An excellent book with a compelling The Wedding Redux plot and a wonderful lead character As stated inrevious reviews my new Rolling Thunder policy is to only award four stars to books that completely blow my mind but this gets a very high four stars Right now some of the best crime andsychological thriller writing is coming from women writers think Val Mcdermid Kathy Reichs amongst many well add another name to that list Jane Casey The Stranger You Know is an excellent example of sheer brilliance in the crime thriller genre where there is something on every Ye Castle Stinketh: Could You Survive Living in a Castle? page where you want to turn everyage because you need to know what happens next Casey does not make it easy to work out who the killer is and by the time you have ieced it together you are at the end of the book Maeve Kerrigan is a detective constable who has a bugger of Detective Inspector Josh Derwent as her boss arrogant and sexist always undermining her But it would be Derwent that would be reliant on Kerrigan in the end With female dead bodies dropping all over London all connected by the MO non sexual killing but the eyes are removed They all seem to connect to a murder that is over twenty years old when Derwent himself was a suspect We are taken on a journey of loyalty and betrayal where we are left trying to work out whodunit while we feel the ressure upon Kerrigan as she gives the story through her eyes in the first Bootie and the Beast person This is no ordinaryolice rocedure novel but a full speed murder case with all the leads and blind alleys and interesting diversions This is one of the grittiest thrillers written in a while which has been so well written that you are searching for clues
