BOOK REPORT......

The Kill - Jane Casey

















Product Description(Amazon.com)
Detective Maeve Kerrigan is away for a colleague's wedding, and she's enjoying an excuse to spend a beautiful fall weekend relaxing in the English countryside. It's a much-needed break from the grit and grime of her daily life on the London police force. But even at a wedding, the job is never far away.
Midway through the reception, Maeve and her abrasive but loyal partner on the police force, DI Josh Derwent, are called back to London. A fellow policeman has been murdered, in a compromising position in a public park at night. And when Maeve and Derwent arrive to speak with the victim's family, his wife and daughter are surprisingly cold and reticent, which adds further layers of complexity to an already delicate investigation. And Maeve knows the victim and his family aren't the only ones with things to hide: the dark secret that her boss, Superintendent Godley, has been keeping for years is threatening to blow up in his face, and if that happens, they'll all be caught in the aftermath.
Pulled between her loyalties to Godley, Derwent, the victim of a murder, and her own driving sense of right and wrong, Maeve will be forced to decide how much she's willing to risk in the name of justice in The Kill, Jane Casey's most intimate, compelling novel yet.

MY THOUGHTS:  Unknown to me when I got this book, it's a series, which isn't a new thing for me.  I'm always getting a book that starts in the middle or end of a series.  Then of course I have to go back and read from the beginning.  So that adds more books to my series books list.  This book was very good, well, it was an awesome read.  Loved all the characters and the location is one of my favorite places, London.  I admit I was kind of lost on some of the history of the characters, but it was still a great book.  Maeve and Derwent at cops and they work at solving murders.  This one starts with a cop getting murdered.  They are at a loss as to who done it.  Then several more police persons are killed.  They get all the info and solve those, but the first one is still unsolved.  So Maeve and Derwent start digging and come up with a solution.  Total surprise to me as to who the person was and why they done it.  I give this book 5....
