9780091949693: After the Fire (Maeve Kerrigan)

After a fire devastates the top floor of a tower block on the Maudling Estate, Maeve Kerrigan and her colleagues are called in. Their presence is needed because it’s a sensitive investigation – not because the blaze was caused by arson, or because several residents died, but because a body was found in the car park below the tower. It appears that controversial MP Geoff Armstrong, trapped by the fire, jumped to his death rather than wait for rescue. But what was he doing in the very unglamorous surroundings of the Maudling Estate? And why did he choose to die when rescuers weren’t far away?

The police can't assume that Armstrong was the arsonist's target. As Maeve and Derwent pick through the wreckage, they uncover the secret world of the eleventh floor, where everyone seems to have something to hide. It’s a tough investigation, made harder by Maeve’s private life unravelling. Without her ex-boyfriend Rob’s steady influence, she’s behaving recklessly, in a way that’s likely to harm her – or someone close to her – before long.

Product Description:

Arson, accident or murder?

After a fire rips through a North London tower block, two bodies are found locked in an 11th floor flat. But is the third victim that ensures the presence of detective Maeve Kerrigan and the murder squad. It appears that controversial MP Geoff Armstrong, trapped by the fire, chose to jump to his death rather than wait for rescue. But what was such a right wing politician doing in the deprived, culturally diverse Maudling Estate?

As Maeve and her senior colleague, Derwent, pick through the wreckage, they uncover the secret world of the 11th floor, where everyone seems to have something to hide…

'Jane Casey's police procedurals go from strength to strength' Sunday Times

Review:

"one of the most charming protagonists in contemporary crime fiction" ( Irish Times)

"a dark, page-turning police procedural" ( Irish Independent)

"Jane Casey's writing is compulsive, menacing and moving" (Sophie Hannah)

"The story of a domestic violence survivor and her young son is rendered with the authenticity of searing investigative journalism. The everyday plight of an elderly widow is brought to life with a complexity you won't soon forget. ... Kerrigan is a steadfast hero and narrator who wins the reader's confidence with her smart, wry sense of humour" ( Oprah.com)
