9780091941215: The Last Girl

“Maeve Kerrigan [is] a fascinating and plausible character.... What she has is persistence, integrity, and emotional intelligence, and a very deft way of insinuating herself into a reader’s affections.” —The Irish Independent (UK)

Vast wealth offers London defense attorney Philip Kennford a lot of things: a gorgeous house with a pool in the backyard, connections in the top echelons of society, a wardrobe worthy of Milan runways. But his money doesn’t provide a happy marriage, or good relationships with his twin daughters...and it does nothing to protect his family when someone brutally murders his wife and daughter in their own home.

When Detective Constable Maeve Kerrigan arrives at the scene, the two survivors—Philip and his second-favorite daughter, Lydia—both claim to have seen nothing, but it’s clear right away that this is an unhappy family accustomed to keeping secrets. Maeve soon finds herself entangled in a case with a thousand leads that all seem to point nowhere, and it doesn’t help that her boss, whom she trusts more than almost anyone, is starting to make decisions that Maeve finds questionable at best.

In The Last Girl, Jane Casey once again demonstrates her ability to write vivid, three-dimensional characters and spin a gripping, unpredictable mystery.

About the Author:

Jane Casey was born and raised in Dublin. A graduate of Oxford with an M. Phil from Trinity College, Dublin, she lives in London, where she works as an editor. This is her fourth novel.

From Booklist:

Womanizing defense lawyer Philip Kennford evokes little sympathy from the London police, what with his lack of emotion over the murders of his wife, Vita, and Laura, his favorite of their 15-year-old twin daughters. The Kennford murders distract the coppers from the deadly gang wars that continue even with one of the gang leaders in prison. DC Maeve Kerrigan and her bluff, misogynistic supervisor, DI Josh Derwent, are unable to make progress on the Kennford case until they track down Kennford’s daughter from his first marriage, supermodel Savannah Wentworth. Meanwhile, as the two cases overlap, and Maeve witnesses compromising behavior by her respected superintendent, her old stalker reappears, making deadly threats against her police-officer boyfriend. Suspense increases until the Kennford case reaches a violent conclusion. The frenetic action seems a bit over the top at times, but the third Maeve Kerrigan mystery remains an engaging procedural with well-drawn characters and a principled protagonist whom readers will want to follow. --Michele Leber
