      Shocker Alert - Loquacious that I am I really have little to say about my latest outing with Maeve Kerrigan, #4 in the series. This is more a means of recording the read, than a review. No, there was really nothing wrong with this book. Yes, I did enjoy it, but there was nothing that really excited me either. What I missed here was development Maeve. This was more Derwent's story and perhaps we need this to understand our Maeve. (view spoiler)[If you've read any of these you know Kerrigan and De [...]

      Book four in the series and young women are being murdered in their homes and their eyes are being removed. The murders could also be connected to an historical murder from 20 years back. The complex and feisty DC Kerrigan is again called upon to investigate alongside her Detective Inspector Derwent. Sexist and hard going but with his heart in the right place Derwent is for once reliant on Kerrigan as the case unfolds and the roads start leading to him.This becomes another gritty police procedur [...]

      Right now some of the best crime and psychological thriller writing is coming from women writers, think Val Mcdermid; Kathy Reichs amongst many well add another name to that list Jane Casey. The Stranger You Know is an excellent example of sheer brilliance in the crime thriller genre where there is something on every page, where you want to turn every page because you need to know what happens next. Casey does not make it easy to work out who the killer is and by the time you have pieced it toge [...]

      4.5 starsI'm not sure I've reviewed any other books in this series, but I have found them all extremely engaging. Maeve Kerrigan is a brave, witty,very human character and I am already looking forward to Jane Casey continuing this series. Along with Maeve, I am really warming to her slightly mad, macho colleague, Derwent, their banter is great dialogue and I hope Casey continues to grow this character. The story is interesting, an old case intersecting with new ones, which become very personal f [...]

      The Stranger You Know is Jane Casey’s best book to date that I have read. In this installment in the Maeve Kerrigan series three women have been strangled and their bodies have been discarded in a way that bears similarities to the Jack the Ripper murders. The police are quick to link the three cases but the evidence points to a shocking suspect: DI Josh Derwent, Maeve’s colleague. Maeve trusts her senses that Josh isn’t the killer, but this isn’t the first time that he’s been accused [...]

    6. Susan Swiderski on said:

      This isn't a break-neck thriller that pushes readers to the edge of their seats, but it is a well-developed tale replete with descriptive details that can completely absorb them into a world of "coppers" on the hunt for a serial killer. I have to admit, this book got off to a slow start for me, but I quickly settled into the slower pace and ended up thoroughly enjoying the ride. The plot provides plenty of twists and turns to plant doubt about various suspects and to keep readers guessing, but I [...]

    7. Mark Edwards on said:

      This was my first book by Jane Casey and I loved it. I jumped in halfway through the series but it didn't matter at all. There are hints at backstory but this book can easily be enjoyed as a standalone - and I'm very much looking forward to going backwards and forwards and reading the rest of the series. Jane has a no-nonsense, easy-to-read style that makes the pages turn quickly. The characterisation is superb - especially Maeve and Derwent but also the minor characters, good and bad – and th [...]

    8. Margaret Madden on said:

      I absolutely love the Maeve Kerrigan series. DI Josh Derwent is the man we love to hate (with all his politically incorrect swagger and sexist comments) but they work SO well together in these books. Maeve is a great protagonist, yet the good old-fashioned detective work takes Centre stage in this installment. Lots of sub-stories and office politics keep Maeve busy and the surprises keep coming. Another cracker from Jane Casey. Off to read 5th installment straight away.

      The Stranger You Know is the 4th book in the Maeve Kerrigan series. Maeve is a detective constable based in London. Her supervisor is DI Josh Derwent who she tolerates because she has to. The banter between them is at times humorous and adds interest to the case. Maeve has a boyfriend Rob who is in police work too and is in the U.S for a work related project during most of this book. It appears that Maeve and Josh are heading for friendship or at least respect for each other but neither would ad [...]

      As the saying goes, “to every reader her book, every book its reader” This book was just not for me. I could not get around the nasty, mean, crabby, snarky, horrible characters in this book! There is only one guy who is a half ass normal person and its Maeve's boyfriend. I have a feeling even though anyone in this book could chew glass and fillet people at the same time, he will end up being the killer. I had to stop reading about a third of the way in, I did try.

      Maeve and her crew are after a serial killer and the killer may be one of their own.

    14. Bill Kupersmith on said:

      This one is so much better than Harry Bingham's Love Story, with Murders, that I'm tempted to go for five stars. But Maeve Kerrigan still needs some sorting out. Her very hesitant affair with Rob finally evolves to the point that Maeve can tell him that she loves him. Remember that when we first met her in The Burning Maeve preferred sex with men she not only didn't love, but whom she didn't even like. And whilst she enthusiastically threw herself into having sex with Rob, real intimacy has been [...]

      First of all thank you to the publishers for allowing me a copy of this book via Netgalley.So here we are at book 4, in a series I have loved from Jane Casey, namely that of Maeve Kerrigan and more importantly (Sorry Maeve!) her sometime boss and sidekick the adorably unlikeable (but loveable) DCI Josh Derwent. This instalment finds Maeve and co on the track of a serial killer….However she is put in a difficult position when it becomes clear to her that the prime suspect is Derwent himself…I [...]

      Jane Casey just keeps on getting better and better at this, and The Stranger You Know might be her best book yet.Maeve Kerrigan, a Detective Constable on the London police force, has grown a lot over the last four books. She's more confident in the face of the blatant sexist attitudes of her partner, Josh Derwent. In The Stranger You Know, though, Kerrigan is brought in to investigate a series of grisly murders and mutilations, while Derwent himself is being cut out of the investigatione he's a [...]

      This is the fourth book in the series of crime novels which feature the detective, Maeve Kerrigan. As always the book hits the ground running with a series of seemingly unrelated violent crimes against women. Gradually, as the story progresses, it becomes increasingly sinister, and when Maeve's maverick colleague, DCI Josh Derwent becomes implicated in the crime, Maeve's loyalties are stretched to the limit.Of all four books in this series, I think that this is the strongest of them all. The sto [...]

    18. Christine on said:

      In the latest instalment of the brilliant series featuring Maeve Corrigan, we see Corrigan on the trail of a murderer killing single women in London. The killings echo a cold case from twenty years ago, in which a teenaged Josh Derwent was a prime suspect. Corrigan is assigned to look into the 1992 murder. She is caught between her loyalty to Corrigan and her boss.Casey is back on form with the fourth book in the Maeve Corrigan series. You can't beat a good serial killer storyline, featuring a w [...]

      Firstly, I did not get this book as a freebie, secondly, I don't feel the need to relay the blurb which is already out there for you all.All I want you to know, is this; this is Jane Casey's best read to date. Jane did all the hard graft of building the main characters in the preceding books which made this an effortless read. For your own enjoyment, read the books in chronological order.The relationship between Maeve and Derwent is equally hilarious and poignant in this book. Also, just as the [...]

    23. KATHLEEN on said:

      Many people on seemed to think that this installment of the Maeve Kerrigan series is better than those which came before. I do not agree. This is the Josh Derwent show, start to finish, and I get impatient when the personalities of the detectives overshadow the work. And Casey is still using Maeve's stalker as a tease, whenever she needs an excuse to send Maeve running somewhere unusual.Still, a very good book. Maeve shows extreme bravery and doesn't get nearly enough credit for it. Casey foole [...]

    24. Shannon on said:

      Decent read, nothing to write home about. A good mystery, if not particularly surprising. Enough to keep me reading the series.

You see, there was a murder in Derwent's past and along with learning the details of that long ago crime, we also get to know him so much better and I for one was thrilled by this plot development!

      The Stranger You Know (Maeve Kerrigan Novels Bk. 4)You can easily guess that Jane Casey has become one of my favorite crime authors. I've followed the series with enthusiasm since receiving the The Burning from NetGalley last year. The books can be read as stand alones, but a great deal of the pleasure in the books involves the way Casey has managed the character growth and the intriguing subplots from one book to the next. And the dialogue--some authors never get the hang of effective dialogue, [...]

      I got this book in a Good Reads giveaway, so thank you!When I first received this book and started it, I wasn't completely sold on it and whether or not I would enjoy it. It began a little slow for me, but after a few chapters, I was hooked. It was a fast and easy read for me because I was interested in the story and what would happen next. The pages flew by and before I knew it, I was halfway through the book. I have to say, I'm very picky about the main characters in books. After reading (most [...]

    28. Jane on said:

      The Stranger You Know is the fourth book in the Maeve Kerrigan police procedural series from Jane Casey, and I think it may be the best so far. The first book was a great start, but seemed a bit clichéd, and there was a lot of introductory material. The second and third were even better, with a lot of character development and a more complex case. The pacing of The Stranger You Know is terrific – I had a hard time putting the book down. The narrative is a great blend of character development [...]

      This book is the fourth in an excellent police detective series featuring 28-year-old London Detective Constable Maeve Kerrigan, an attractive Irish woman trying to survive in a British, male-dominated police department.In this installment, a brutal serial killer of young women is stepping up his pace, and Maeve is invited to be on the task force. Superintendent Godley deliberately excludes Maeve’s partner, however - the difficult Josh Derwent, and at first Godley refuses to explain why. Maeve [...]

      This is the fourth book in the Maeve Kerrigan series by Jane Casey but the first one that I have read. It being part of a series was no detriment to the story, the threads of previous stories and background were easy to pick up as the characters are strong and the writing excellent.The story revolves around a spate of murders that have recently occurred throughout London and the fear that the murderer is ready to strike again; added to that is the possibility that these murders have a striking s [...]
