Book Review: The Burning by Jane Casey

net galley disclosure

In this first in Casey’s thrilling, romantic mystery series for adults, 
meet Detective Constables Maeve Kerrigan and Rob Langton 


The Burning Man. It’s the name the media has given 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 there’s a fifth.

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 when so much of the evidence has gone up in smoke?

Maeve’s frenetic hunt for a killer in Jane Casey’s gripping series debut will entrance even the most jaded suspense readers. 

Read an excerpt!


Love, love, love this new series! Maeve is headstrong, determined, realistic and makes mistake in the romance department like all of us! In fact, the book starts out with a hard dose of realism, and continues from there. There are so many twists and turns, that the reader will be second guessing themselves as they attempt to solve the mystery before Maeve does! This is an excellent start for the series, as it sets up all the main characters nicely and establishes relationships and possible future ramifications.

I'll be sharing book two with you soon! Trust me, you'll love this new series if you love a great police procedural with a female lead character!
