    Pedophiles are being murdered and Maeve Kerrigan and her partner Detective Josh Derwent are called in to investigate Shocked at the violence of the killings Maeve throws herself into the investigation only to find out halfway through that there is going on than meets the eyeI first became introduced to Jane Casey and her character Maeve Kerrigan when I read Let the Dead Speak which I loved I knew one day I would go back and read some of the earlier books It is always interesting when you read a book out of order to go back and read earlier books From reading this one I can clearly see how much not only the author's writing has improved but also the degree of character development she has built over the course of her seriesMaeve is a strong female character who must put up with sexism and a partner who is rough around the edges and reminds her constantly that she is female The story is told from her point of view so the reader is privy to her thoughts emotions and doubts We also see her in a relationship with her co worker Rob believing that no one knows Although I enjoyed this book I found myself wanting things to hurry up a bit here and there The book is summed up nicely in terms of the plot and subplot This is the second book in the series and gets the series off to a nice start I look forward to reading the other books in the series

    The Hook A promising series I started and forgot aboutThe Line – ”The morning after the night before is never a lot of fun especially if don’t drink much as a rule”The Sinker – Nothing horribly earth shattering but I thoroughly enjoyed this second book in the Maeve Kerrigan SeriesI suppose you could call it a London police procedural Just as I would expect there’s a new round of brutal killings of women and the perpetrators of these to find There are grizzly details so this is not for those of you who don’t like graphic violence I didn’t get a strong sense of London but that may just be me It certainly didn’t bother me The police department and flats etc are described well enough What I really liked was the nod to how British police are unarmed and just who comes in with the guns I honestly think this is the first time I have gotten a clear sense of this in a book Maeve Kerrigan is a strong character making her place in a man’s world She has room for growth as self doubt is still coming through loud and clear She continues her romantic relationship with Rob Langton and spars with enough of her male colleagues to make this woman want to join her team The addition though minor of DC Liv can’t remember her last name was a plus giving Maeve a female ear and someone to commiserate with and also to mentor I hope to see this character and their relationship grow It seems likely for there to be than one woman on the teamCount me in for number 3

    45 starsThis is my second read of the series These are nuanced deeply realistic feeling books on many levels—psychological relationships procedural professional The complexity of this novel unfolds and unfolds with a moderate persistent pace There’s lots here to hold your attention curiosity and problem solving mystery reading brain But it never feels overly complicated or confusing There’s a Goldilocks uality to the writing that’s hard to pinpoint The crime aftermaths experienced in the investigativeforensic context is pretty gritty but not overdone As real seeming and distinct as the main characters are even technically relatable and likable I somehow don’t find a true link with any of them the way I often do with series characters that are less skillfully written I don’t know how to explain that But I find I’m reading the series for the uality of the writing and story but not because I’m compelled to come back to the lives of the characters It’s not really a knock to the books but it’s a gap in the reading experience for a series

    The Reckoning is the 2nd book in the Maeve Kerrigan series by Jane Casey though it is actually the third book I have read due to previously reading one out of order I enjoy this series and this book but thought its strength was in the attempt to add meat to the bones of the characters than a one off novelIn this book Maeve is searching for a killer who is targeting paedophiles and torturing them Like a lot of good thrillers all is not as it seems and all becomes clear around halfway through This book adds a fair deal of personal background to the main character Detective Constable Maeve Kerrigan and I feel sure this will add to the enjoyment of future books in giving the characters substanceNot the best book in the series so far but certainly a good read and I could easily have marked slightly higher on another day

    I found The Reckoning to be somewhat of a curious read At one level I thoroughly enjoyed the story The writing was engaging the procedural elements are well done there’s a nice mix of characters and the plot has a nice puzzle The twist halfway through was well executed and worked to elevate the plot above usual police procedural fare That said the story was a little uneven in pacing was a little clichéd in terms of character traits the world weary superintendent over bearing misogynist DI headstrong DC etc though this is becoming difficult to avoid in a saturated genre and there were a couple of clunky plot devices Kerrigan’s romance with her colleague Rob was often drawn out and worked to slow the storytelling at times eg pages 90 123 is basically a set of conversations between them that could have been 8 10 pages and still have conveyed the same sentiments Moreover her inability to commit to a relationship with him seemed contrived and a little ridiculous it made her appear as a serious committed copper with a Bridget Jones complex that I just didn’t fully buy As the story neared its conclusion it relies on two elements that I always find somewhat annoying a highly unlikely coincidence and a critical piece of evidence being delivered on a platter for no discernible reason Finally towards the end the narrative swaps from Maeve’s perspective to Rob’s but whereas Maeve’s voice is strong and compelling Rob’s felt flat and lifeless I realise that sounds uite negative but as noted The Reckoning is enjoyable compelling and clever; with a little editing it would have been a real standout

    ↠3 To be honest I don’t remember the first book the only thing I remember for sure is the main character’s name and that there possibly were some burnt bodiesAt first it was difficult to get back to a world I don’t remember with characters I had forgotten so I got to meet them all over again This is not the usual mystery story as it concentrates on Maeve’s life and how she deals with police stuff than with the mystery of the murders although that too is present It’s not something I would usually read but I liked it and I’m looking forward to continuing the serieshopefully it won’t take me much time to pick up the next one

    45 again although things are already starting to blur slightly between the two books which I read back to backThe description on this one is uite misleading as the public hardly gets the chance to consider the killer a hero at all Very grim killings and Maeve struggles hard with her new partnersuperior and his attitudes towards her in particular and everyone in general and his moods and his behaviour She's also struggling with her personal life having moved into the latest of a series of new flats with some interesting tenants being pressured by her mother as always and unsure about the potential relationship that never got going in the first book I don't think I'm likely to have been too unusual in hoping against hope that she got over her reluctance before it was too late as this relationship would pretty clearly be a good one In fact I was than a bit cranky about it at times despite the sensible element to her determination not to go for it But the way it worked out in the end was both satisfying and slightly surprising Surprising in showing a different side to Maeve's personality which was both funny and touching There's another woman in the newly expanded team for this book and while she and Maeve should be immediate allies against the still predominantly sexist and harassing males on the team it's not that easy for Maeve I liked how it resolved though and hope to see the friendship develop in future books As Maeve has to focus so intently on her professional life and as she believes in what she's doing so much not all of her considerable intelligence is applied to life outside the job This works well for me as she's far interesting than just an emotionally stunted workaholic while not always being totally clued in about herself I mention this because I just noticed that much of what I've written has to do with her relationships even if many of those are with colleagues Always difficult to talk about mysteries anyway so I'll just let it stand at that for the moment I will be reading the rest of the series I read the novella Left for Dead and then had to stop myself from binge reading all of the books right now this minute as I was uite tempted to do

    Rereading Loved it again and it developed into one of my favourite series still going strongFirst time Derwent was a revelation I love that character so much ANYWAY these are brilliant Police proceduralpsychological thriller hybrids always beautifully written and plotted If you've not read them yet I'd recommend starting if you are a crime fan
