But they know it will only be a matter of time before the killer strikes again.
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.

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.
