    Shocker Alert Loquacious that I am I really have little to say about my latest outing with Maeve Kerrigan, 4 in the series This is a means of recording the read, than a review No, there was really nothing wrong with this book Yes, I did enjoy it, but there was nothing that really excited me either What I missed here was development Maeve This was Derwent s story and perhaps we need this to understand our Maeve view spoiler If you ve read any of these you know Kerrigan and Derwent have a complicated relationship but to make him the prime suspect in a series of serial murders makes little sense to me If and this is a big if, I truly believed he did it, maybe But no, are we supposed to believe Jane Casey would trash Derwent, the foil that keeps Maeve on her toes and guides he...

    Book four in the series and young women are being murdered in their homes and their eyes are being removed The murders could also be connected to an historical murder from 20 years back The complex and feisty DC Kerrigan is again called upon to investigate alongside her Detective Inspector Derwent Sexist and hard going but with his heart in the right place Derwent is for once reliant on Kerrigan as the case unfolds and the roads start leading to him.This becomes another gritty police procedural that tests friendships, betrayal and loyalty Handled well by Ms Casey the story unfolds at a pacy speed and twists and turns so you don t know where it s all heading Kerrigan, though not perfect, is becoming a character I like and as of her personality is revealed through the books But what I really loved was of Derwent ...

    4.5 starsI m not sure I ve reviewed any other books in this series, but I have found them all extremely engaging Maeve Kerrigan is a brave, witty,very human character and I am already looking forward to Jane Casey continuing this series Along with Maeve, I am really warming to her slightly mad, macho colleague, Derwent, their banter is great dialogue and I hope Casey continues to grow this character The story is interesting, an old case intersecting with new ones, which become very personal for Derwent, an...

    Right now some of the best crime and psychological 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 page, where you want to turn every page 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 pieced 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 whodu...

    The Stranger You Know is Jane Casey s best book to date that I have read In this installment in the Maeve Kerrigan series three women have been strangled and their bodies have been discarded in a way that bears similarities to the Jack the Ripper murders The police are quick to link the three cases but the evidence points to a shocking suspect DI Josh Derwent, Maeve s colleague Maeve trusts her senses that Josh isn t the killer, but this isn t the first time that he s been accused of murder Josh s past is just about to catch up with him I love Jane Casey s writing, she produces utterly gripping material and she always has me hooked from page one She adds real depth to her characters this novel mainly focuses on Josh s past which Jane has kept from us until now Josh is an intriguing character, I m never quite sure if I like or don t like him a...

    I absolutely love the Maeve Kerrigan series DI Josh Derwent is the man we love to hate with all his politically incorrect swagger and sexist comments but they work SO well together in these books Maeve is a great protagonist, yet the good...

    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 pages turn quickly The characterisation is superb especia...

    This isn t a break neck thriller that pushes readers to the edge of their seats, but it is a well developed tale replete with descriptive details that can completely absorb them into a world of coppers on the hunt for a serial killer I have to admit, this book got off to a slow start for me, but I quickly settled into the slower pace and ended up thoroughly enjoying the ride The plot provides plenty of twists and turns to plant doubt about various suspects and to keep readers guessing, but I think the author s stongest talent lies in her fully developed characters, and in the realistic way they interact with each other Maeve Kerrigan is an intelligent, insightful police investigator with integrity out the wazoo and an inquisitive mind that makes her a valuable asset to any investigation Her senior partner Josh Derwent is a brilliant investigator, but he also has a disagreeable disposition, and seems to derive great pleasure from picking at her with his insulting opi...

    First of all thank you to the publishers for allowing me a copy of this book via Netgalley.So here we are at book 4, in a series I have loved from Jane Casey, namely that of Maeve Kerrigan and importantly Sorry Maeve her sometime boss and sidekick the adorably unlikeable but loveable DCI Josh Derwent This instalment finds Maeve and co on the track of a serial killer.However she is put in a difficult position when it becomes clear to her that the prime suspect is Derwent himself I 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 and plausible outlook on her own psyche and actions often telling herself off as she dives head first into a situation she KNOWS she should avoid..and the way she tends to just fall into the people who are eventually going to become important to her and gives them 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 describe..the best I can do You know that silly game you play 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 novel this one was, as described to me by the author Wall to Wall Derwent and that m...

    The Stranger You Know is the 4th book in the Maeve Kerrigan series Maeve is a detective constable based in London Her supervisor is DI Josh Derwent who she tolerates because she has to The banter between them is at times humorous and adds interest to the case Maeve has a boyfriend Rob who is in police work too and is in the U.S for a work related project during most of this book It appears that Maeve and Josh are heading for friendship or at least respect for each other but neither would admit that right now.Maeve has been asked to be on the serial killer case However, she is not to talk to Derwent about the case which is odd because he is her supervisor The recent murders appear to be tied to an unsolved murder from twenty years ago The murder victim of the unsolved murder was Josh Derwent s first love The recent murder victims are arranged like the twenty year old murder case.If you like police procedurals with strong characterizations a...
