The Kill by Jane Casey
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

We start with the death of a police officer, a sad, unhappily married man, and Maeve Kerrigen and Josh Derwent are on the case. The body count mounts, all police officers, and so then does the tension. They are a lovely duo now on their fifth case. Derwent is old school, crude, chauvinistic and cynical; Kerrigan is a calming influence who, although critical of him, is deeply respectful. The dialogue between them is great. It is London-set. This does stand alone but the character build over the books is lovely, especially the relationship between the two detectives. You may hate Josh to start with but by now you’ll truly love him.

If you like Jane Casey you might also like to read books by Morag Joss, Sophie Hannah and Simon Kernick.

Who is Sarah Broadhurst

The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. In Jane Casey’s The Kill, the streets of London are awash with fear, but a ruthless killer is not targeting ordinary citizens – the target is policemen. Reassigned as a matter of urgency to investigate a series of savage attacks on her fellow officers, Maeve Kerrigan and her boss Josh Derwent have a troubling double problem: find out (very quickly) what is the motive behind these acts of brutality – and stop them. Meanwhile, the killer strikes again. More impressively kinetic thriller writing from the talented Jane Casey, who is proving to be one of the most able practitioners around.
