Image of The Reckoning (Maeve Kerrigan Novels)

Casey gives readers a twisty serial killer story as she probes more deeply into the mind and heart of Detective Constable Maeve Kerrigan. Old and new cases collide, and the resulting sparks could set her career alight — or cause it to go up in flames. Genuinely suspenseful and extremely well written with just a touch of The Internet Is Going to Kill You, The Reckoning will keep readers turning pages long into the night and pushing the book on friends the next day.

Someone is torturing and killing child molesters in London. While the victims are less than sympathetic, Maeve Kerrigan is still doing her best to find out who did it, while dealing with a vengeful mobster, online predators and missing-persons cold cases along the way. In the meantime, she’s partnered professionally with someone extremely unpleasant, who seems determined to make her look bad, and is on the fence about partnering in a more personal manner with another detective.
