9780091936006: The Burning: (Maeve Kerrigan 1)

A serial killer who wants to watch you burn...

The media call him The Burning Man, a brutal murderer who has beaten four young women to death, before setting their bodies ablaze in secluded areas of London's parks. And now the fifth victim has been found...

Maeve Kerrigan is an ambitious detective constable, keen to make her mark on the murder task force. Her male colleagues believe Maeve's empathy makes her weak, but the more she learns about the latest victim, Rebecca Haworth, from her grieving friends and family, the more determined Maeve becomes to bring her murderer to justice.

But how do you catch a killer no one has seen? And when so much of the evidence they leave behind has gone up in smoke?

Review:

"Astute, complex, layered - and very twisted. You'll remember this one for a long time" ( Lee Child)

"The number of convincing police officers in crime fiction is a tiny squad but Maeve has the potential to be one of the few female members" ( Daily Telegraph)

"Casey rarely puts a foot wrong in this enthralling example of a bait-and-switch novel...Parallel first-person narratives from either side of the thin blue line contribute hugely to the novel's page-turning quality, although the author's success here is largely due to her superb characterisations. The Burning confirms that she's a talent to watch." ( Irish Times)

"

November 2010 Book of the Month.

This is the new psychological thriller from the acclaimed author of The Missing. It's gripping and utterly compulsive, leaving you gasping for breath as you get to the last page

" ( Love Reading)

" The Burning, is an excellent follow up, with a psychologically interesting plot and complex, well-drawn characters" ( Irish Independent)

Book Description:

A tense psychological thriller from the acclaimed author of THE MISSING
