A murder without a body.
Eighteen-year-old Chloe Emery returns to her West London home one day to find the house covered in blood and Kate, her mother, gone. There may not be a body, but everything else points to murder.
A girl too scared to talk.
Maeve Kerrigan is young, ambitious and determined to prove she's up to her new role as detective sergeant. She suspects Chloe is holding something back, but best friend Bethany Norris won't let Maeve get close. What exactly is Bethany protecting Chloe from?
A detective with everything to prove.
As the team dig deeper into the residents of Valerian Road, no one is above suspicion. All Maeve needs is one person to talk, but that's not going to happen. Because even in a case of murder, some secrets are too terrible to share....

"Jane Casey is one of the brightest stars in the modern crime firmament, and Let the Dead Speak may be her best yet. Fiendishly gripping." (John Connolly, best-selling author of the Charlie Parker series)

Another excellent Jane Casey thriller
Loved it all, bar a few glaring procedural errors which it seemed unbelievable that a bright spark like DS Kerrigan ...or indeed even a child would make as belied common sense. Tour de force performance from the dulcet toned Caroline Lennon. Great layered plot that just kept on going and enjoyed it 98% to the max minus the couple of niggles that beggared belief. Can't wait for the next one.

Absolutely fabulous crime writer just getting better
Thoroughly enjoyed yet another clever story by Jane Casey. Plausible plot that keeps you guessing combined with my favourite detectives and a fantastic narrator is audible experience at its best. Loved it!

Good read but let down by lead characters
The crime story is ok but the Derwent/Kerrigan thing was mismatched to previous stories and really let down the thread of previous books. After all the things they have been through together it’s probably time she stopped whining about him and saying he can’t be trusted and she doesn’t like him - irritating. His domestic bliss is a bit odd too.
