“The Maeve Kerrigan [novels are] all solid procedurals with exceptionally well-drawn characters whose relationship continue to develop in each entry. Derwent, a brilliant copper in Maeve's eyes despite his numerous personality defects, serves as a foil and balance for her, and, with him at the center here, this novel attains further complexity in the interplay of the police-force members. Prime crime fiction.” ―Booklist (starred review)
“A captivating police procedural heavy on characterization that will keep readers up late into the night. Maeve is a character to love; she's easy to relate to as she holds her own with humor and snappy dialogue. The voice of the novel is unique and captivating.” ―RT Book Reviews (4½ stars)--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The other problematic element as the series advances is Casey's tendency to embed red herrings that continue from book to book. There's
a stalker who is achieving Moriarity status and repeated hints that her widely admired boss is corrupt. Not bad plot points, but some resolution please!
My disappointment with The Stranger You Know also involves the type of crime it portrays: a serial killer who mutilates his female victims. So many crime novels are built around this particularly gruesome plot line which invites us to read the victims as somehow complicit in their terrible fate. Much of the detecting focuses on the killer's presumed fantasy life and it all adds up to a fascination with dead, dying and tortured women as a category. Crimes against men in such books tend to be personal and individual.
I alternated between reading this on my Kindle and listening to it on Audible. While listening to it I started to crack up because I don't think the author realises how much she uses the word glowering. In fact, her characters exhibit this facial expression at least several times each throughout the book, and I don't think there's a single chapter that doesn't toss two or three your way.
Oh, the unplanned for hilarity!

I've given this book four stars and already downloaded some more of this series by Jane Casey.
I’m looking forward to the next one!
