  • Loved it!

    The latest Maeve Kerrigan is a police procedural, but it has so many different elements. There's the whodunnit of course, there's witty banter, there's sexual tension of the will they won't they variety. It's part of a series but it can be read as a standalone, so don't let that put you off.

  • Loved it

    I've read all the books in the Maeve Kerrigan series. Based on that, I can say how much the author's style has changed -- for the better. Of course, I especially loved the scenes between my favourite detectives <3

  • Sublime!

    Although I have yet to read the majority of the books in this remarkable series by Jane Casey (though I did get the opportunity to read book eight, Cruel Acts), I was happy to dive into this ninth book, The Cutting Place and I think it worked well as an individual crime/ thriller. In this London based series, DS Maeve Kerrigan is an interesting character - she is a sharp-witted investigator who often produces the forward impetus in the investigation. All of the characterisation by Jane Casey is exemplary, and Kerrigan's partner-in-crime DI Josh Derwent's is also very good, so much so that I cannot wait to see where this talented author takes them next. This is a dark, riveting and absolutely compulsive must-read, ingeniously plotted and packed with misdirections. Kerrigan is quite the discriminating and shrewd protagonist, finding herself on the darkest of investigations with Derwent, involving the shady, ruthless world of elite gentlemen's clubs. Her on/off, will-they-or-won't-they relationship with Derwent was a delightful distraction in all of the murk, depravity and clandestine activity, adding further dimension to an already first-class page-turner. Very highly recommended, I am certain that crime fiction and thriller aficionados will love The Cutting Place. I received a complimentary digital copy of this novel, at my request, from HarperCollins via NetGalley and this review is my unbiased opinion.

  • Just ... excellent

    I absolutely devoured this book and, once again, I find myself sounding like a broken record in that I haven't got enough different words to describe how much I enjoyed it and despite it being the ninth in the series, it continues to feel fresh with the partnership of DS Maeve Kerrigan and DI Josh Derwent being a particular highlight of mine and one which I absolutely adore. Here we find the team investigating a particularly brutal murder when a body part is found by a mudlarker on the banks of the Thames; the ensuing investigation leads to a missing journalist and an exclusive gentleman's club ... are they related? Amongst all this is a look into the private life of Maeve and the importance of strong friendships and trust. This is a compelling and engaging story line and not just a police-procedural; it delves into the murky world of "gentleman's" clubs, domestic violence, blackmail, privilege and power. I'm not going to lie, it's a dark story full of tension that is all too plausible but there are lighter moments that provide some occasional relief. Highly, highly recommended and you don't have to have read previous books in the series to appreciate just how good this is but you will certainly want to after reading this. My thanks and appreciation go to HarperCollins UK, HarperFiction and NetGalley for my copy in return for an honest review.

    Thanks for your feedback!
