The Reckoning Summary

The Reckoning: (Maeve Kerrigan 2) by Jane Casey

To the public, he's a hero: a killer who targets convicted paedophiles.
Two men are dead already - tortured to death.

Even the police don't regard the cases as a priority. Most feel that two dead paedophiles is a step in the right direction.

But to DC Maeve Kerrigan, no one should be allowed to take the law into their own hands. Young and inexperienced, Kerrigan wants to believe that murder is murder no matter what the sins of the victim. Only, as the killer's violence begins to escalate, she is forced to confront exactly how far she's prepared to go to ensure justice is served...

The Reckoning Reviews

stands out from the pack as both a twisty, well-crafted mystery and as a humanistic portrait of an ambitious professional with a strong moral centre. The series could almost be subtitled "Jane Tennison: The Early Years" * Irish Times *
The plots [Maeve] has to unravel are impeccably weaved and unfold dexterously while maintaining a strong sense of place and a compulsive, menacing atmosphere. Driven by a strong sense of justice, she is a character younger female readers will find easy to identify with. Definitely one for the future. -- Maxim Jakubowski * Love Reading *
Maeve Kerrigan [is] a fascinating and plausible character...What she has is persistence, integrity and emotional intelligence, and a very deft way of insinuating herself into a reader's affections * The Irish Independent *
A] dramatic, expertly crafted thriller * Entertainment Weekly *

About Jane Casey

"All my criminal elements have some basis in reality, no matter how awful they may be. Nothing is completely farfetched." Jane Casey

Crime is a family affair for Jane Casey. Married to a criminal barrister, she has a unique insight into the brutal underbelly of urban life, from the smell of a police cell to the darkest motives of a serial killer.

This gritty realism has made her books international bestsellers and critical successes; while D.C. Maeve Kerrigan has quickly become one of the most popular characters in crime fiction.

Her novel The Stranger You Know won the Mary Higgins Clark Award and she has also been shortlisted for the Irish Crime Novel of the Year Award four times as well as the CWA Dagger in the Library Award.
