After the Fire by Jane Casey- Feature and Review

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…

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

After the Fire by Jane Casey is a 2015 Minotaur publication

Once more Jane Casey creates a moody, turbulent, atmospheric crime story disguised as a standard police procedural. This series gets better with each installment and as far as modern British mysteries go, it has become one of my very favorites.

While it is not absolutely necessary to read the series in order, I still suggest you read the book immediately preceding this one in order to understand the relationships between the main cast of characters leading up to this book.
Overall, I am continually impressed with Jane Casey’s work. If you enjoy British mysteries, police procedurals or dark psychological thrillers, then you will probably find yourself as addicted to this series as I am.
