Publisher's Summary

The Burning Man. It’s the name the media has given a brutal murderer who has beaten four young women to death before setting their bodies ablaze in secluded areas of London’s parks. And now there’s a fifth.
Maeve Kerrigan is an ambitious detective constable, keen to make her mark on the murder task force. Her male colleagues believe Maeve’s empathy clouds her judgment, but the more she learns about the latest victim, Rebecca Haworth, from her grieving friends and family, the more determined Maeve becomes to bring her murderer to justice. But how do you catch a killer no one has seen when so much of the evidence has gone up in smoke?
Maeve’s frenetic hunt for a killer in The Burning, Jane Casey’s series debut, is a gripping introduction to one of the most engaging crime fiction characters in recent memory.

Better than I expected! Close to a 5 🌟

After reading some of the less flattering reviews I wasn't sure what I would get- but it was much better than the reviews led me to expect. I thought Maeve was a great new character and I've already purchased the next book in the series. some people criticized the narrator and that baffles me as well - I thought the narrator did a great job and I had no trouble following different characters. Though I'm often not a fan of switching points of view in this book I thought it worked well. I'm tempted to give it 5 stars just to raise the overall average. if there was something in between 4 and 5 star rating that's where I would put it. Couldn't stop listening. A great find in my opinion!

Glad I listened to this one last

I'm really glad that I listened to this book in the Maeve Kerrigan series last because had I listened to it first, I don't think I would have listened to the other books in this series, which are VERY good.

I found Louise to be very annoying in this book and the last hour of the book which is mostly a letter from Louise simply needed to finish!

I don't think this book is critical to Maeve Kerrigan series if you are interested in reading or listening to these books. All of the other books in the series are much better and maybe that is because of the interaction of Josh Derwent. He's a bugger and I love him! He adds to the story.
