    One thought on “The Reckoning”

    1. The Reckoning is the second book in the Maeve Kerrigan series and though not quite as good a read as the debut, still an interesting read nonetheless.This time paeodophiles are being brutally murdered and no obvious reasoning is forthcoming. Kerrigan and the team are put onto the case and soon enough the bodies start piling up. About halfway through the book the storyline takes on a different turn sending the whole thing into a different direction. It was cleverly done and not an obvious route t [...]

    2. The Hook - A promising series I started and forgot about.The Line – ”The morning after the night before is never a lot of fun, especially if don’t drink much as a rule.”The Sinker – Nothing horribly earth shattering but I thoroughly enjoyed this second book in the Maeve Kerrigan Series.I suppose you could call it a London police procedural. Just as I would expect there’s a new round of brutal killings of women and the perpetrators of these to find. There are grizzly details so this i [...]

    3. The Reckoning is the 2nd book in the Maeve Kerrigan series by Jane Casey though it is actually the third book I have read due to previously reading one out of order. I enjoy this series and this book but thought its strength was more in the attempt to add meat to the bones of the characters than a one off novel.In this book Maeve is searching for a killer who is targeting paedophiles and torturing them. Like a lot of good thrillers all is not as it seems and all becomes clear around halfway thro [...]

    4. I found The Reckoning to be somewhat of a curious read. At one level, I thoroughly enjoyed the story. The writing was engaging, the procedural elements are well done, there’s a nice mix of characters, and the plot has a nice puzzle. The twist halfway through was well executed and worked to elevate the plot above usual police procedural fare. That said, the story was a little uneven in pacing, was a little clichéd in terms of character traits (the world weary superintendent, over-bearing, miso [...]

    5. 4.5 again, although things are already starting to blur slightly between the two books, which I read back to back.The description on this one is quite misleading, as "the public" hardly gets the chance to consider the killer a hero at all. Very grim killings, and Maeve struggles hard with her new "partner"/superior and his attitudes towards her (in particular, and everyone in general) and his moods and his behaviour. She's also struggling with her personal life, having moved into the latest of a [...]

    6. Paedophiles are being tortured and murdered in London. In the second instalment of the Maeve Corrigan series, Maeve is assigned to the team hunting the paedophile killer. A case of a missing girl, Cheyenne becomes linked to the killings. We follow Maeve and her colleagues as they investigate.One again, Jane Casey has crafted a brilliant and exciting well paced story. I love this series because it feels realistic and British in tone. Maeve is a fantastic character and she just gets better with ea [...]

    7. I'll be honest, I was pretty ambivalent towards the first book in this series, The Burning. However, I was desperate for a new audiobook on my drive to work, and so I found myself engrossed in a mystery that otherwise I would not have picked up.In this second book in Casey's Maeve Kerrigan series Maeve's personal life isn't the best, she's moved into the latest of bad apartments, and she's got a new superior who really rubs her the wrong way. On top of that, someone's targeting and torturing kno [...]

    8. The Reckoning is Janie Casey's second crime novel starring Maeve Kerrigan as Detective Constable of the London Police force. Someone is targeting registered pedophiles and the violence is escalating and even the police don't regard the murders as a priority. Maeve is shocked by the violence inflicted during these kills – the victims were made to suffer. On the personal side, she and Rob are realizing how much they care about each other, although dating a co-worker is frowned upon. Maeve is pai [...]

    9. The Reckoning By Jane CaseyMy Speedy SummaryMaeve, a detective, is involved in finding out who is meticulously murdering some of London's pedophiles among other crimes.My ThoughtsI found this to be a riveting  detective story with tons of dysfunctional charactersis included some of the good guys, too.  I read  this as a stand alone but I truly wish I would have read the first book in this seriesThe Burning.  The central character, Maeve Kerrigan, a detective, was damaged in a way that was [...]

    10. What an exciting sequel! Finding a new mystery series is always exciting - especially when an anticipated sequel ends up being stronger than the first book! The criminals in the second Maeve Kerrigan book are truly depraved, and the plot twists and turns in some very surprising ways! Casey’s characters remain strong, and fully developed. And not at all static - I think I anxiously flipped pages partly for the plot itself and partly just to see the relationship between Maeve and Rob! Some new c [...]

    11. I have become a serious fan of Jane Casey and her Maeve Kerrigan police procedural series.Maeve is 28, and a Detective Constable for the London Police Murder Squad. She adores her boss, Superintendent Charles Godley, but he pairs her with a brash newcomer to the squad, Josh Derwent, insensitive and sexist. In fact, this is how most of the squad fellows are except for Rob Langton, with whom Maeve has been having a surreptitious on-and-off relationship. Members of the same squad shouldn’t date, [...]

    12. It's a satisfying feeling - for me at least - to find an author who combines a good story, good characters AND good writing. It shouldn't be hard to find that combination, but it really is. This is the second book I've read in this series featuring a young and strong heroine, Maeve Kerrigan, a Detective Constable who is part of an elite murder squad in London. This is the second in the series. Maeve has been paired with a difficult partner and superior, Josh Derwent, who derides her and too ofte [...]

    13. had The Burning on my recommended list so when this was offered by Vine I decided to give it a go. I am so pleased I did as it is well written, has good characters and an interesting premise for a crime novel.When two paedophiles are found dead having clearly been tortured, the police investigate with varying amounts of interest. When a notorious crime boss notifies police that his 14 year old daughter is missing urgent action is required. This is a thrilling book and although there is plenty o [...]

    14. 'The Reckoning' is written from the perspective of Detective Constable Maeve Kerrigan, familiar to readers of Jane Casey's previous novel, 'The Burning.' She has recovered from the events in the Burning, and is working with her same team except with three new officers and a new partner for Maeve, the abrasive DI Josh Derwent. There's something very real about the relationships that form and the way the officers work together, and I found myself thoroughly believing as the story progressed.The pr [...]

    15. Casey is definitely getting better as she goes along. #1 (The Missing) was truly dreadful. #2 (The Burning) was pretty good. And this is much better. The dialogue is still a little trying/unbelievable at times, but the doers were not as obvious this time around. My only real complaint: it's great to have a strong, young female detective as the protagonist, but when she is also the target of violence and stalking and harassment, some of which have nothing to do with her job (and none of the other [...]

    16. If you are looking for well-developed characters, believable situations, and lots of tension, you've found your author. I'read all three books writting by Jane Casey, and can't wait for the next one. Set in London, it follows the professional life of an Irish detective raised in England. It feels like you stepped into the murder squadroom and have become a part of the action.

    17. Took me a while to get going with this but once i did i enjoyed it. Have to say though that the two 'Rob' chapters seemed pointless.

    18. Maeve gets paired up with a crusty DI with a heart. We learn more about Godley. Maeve's personal life gets more exposure. Good series. I took a while to warm up to this one because I kept thinking. What? Another serial killer?

    19. I loved everything about this book. The writing style, The mystery story line, and the characters. This was my first Maeve Kerrigan book, but I had no trouble getting into the story. I think I will go back and read the first one in the series now. 5 Stars!

    20. The Reckoning is the 2nd book in the Maeve Kerrigan mystery series. I liked the first book The Burning so I wanted to continue with the series. I enjoyed the second book even more than the first book.Many have given a synopsis of the book so I am going to say what made this book special to me and why I liked it. The mystery portion was very good. It was not static as it changed though out the book. Once one mystery was solved, it led into another mystery. There were subplots that ran along side [...]

    21. Jane Casey's debut novel The Missing, was a gripping standalone read that never flagged. In a similar way to the TV show of the same name, it took us into the nightmare world of the family left behind when a child goes missing. Her second book The Burning (although a more standard cops try and catch the bad guys read) was almost as gripping and introduced us to the character of DC Maeve Kerrigan, a tough Irish lass who wouldn't be out of place in a Marian Keyes novel - and I mean that as a compl [...]

    22. The second of the D.I. Maeve Kerrigan stories and another enjoyable book from Jane Casey. There is quite a lot happening here, just when you think it's over, although it's clearly not, due to the number of pages left in the book, it continues to hold your interest and holds its pace and intrigue to the end. The story is about a killer/killers (the police can't be sure if there is more than one involved), are targeting paedophiles and torturing them to death. They can't make sense about how the k [...]

    23. i tend to have lower expectations for crime novels that revolve around serial killers-- a lot of the time they feel like a cop-out because they get to rely a lot on the thrill of preventing another murder. personally, i like my mysteries more introspective and quieter (see: my love for tana french's dublin murder squad) but the book manages to straddle the line between the two and does so at an impressive pacee quality of the writing still surprises me haha, though i should've known to trust jan [...]

    24. Early in 2014, I received an egalley from NetGalley of The Burning by Jane Casey. It was an excellent police procedural, the first in a series featuring Maeve Kerrigan.The Reckoning is the second book in the series. This time, Maeve is partnered with the brash (and completely politically incorrect) detective Josh Derwent. The case they are investigating involves the gruesome murders of three sex offenders, and Derwent does all he can to make things uncomfortable for Maeve. The characters are wel [...]

    27. I won this book in a giveaway.I'm a big reader of british mysteries and I will be sure to add Jane Casey to my list of must-reads.The plot in this book revolves around a young girl who goes missing. This young girl isn't anyone ordinary though. Her father is a violent mobster who begins to search for his daughter by systematically torturing and killing sex offenders. DC Maeve Kerrigan is assigned to the case and she proves to be a very likable character. She shows a great deal of empathy toward [...]
