Let the Dead Speak (Maeve Kerrigan Novels) - Jane Casey


I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This is the seventh in the Maeve Kerrigan series of detective novels but my first. It involves the disappearance and possible murder of a single mother in Putney and the police investigation into her death. This involves many of her neighbours, her daughter, her ex-husband and his new family. Many twists and tuns along the way make this an intriguing novel although one “coincidence” didn't ring true for me.

The writing is engaging as are the characters although it's hard to warm to any of them with their flaws. Some humour is injected successfully and I enjoyed the story and would recommend it to all lovers of detective fiction.
