Publisher's Summary

A serial killer who wants to watch you burn.…
The media call him The Burning Man, 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 the fifth victim has been found….
Maeve Kerrigan is an ambitious detective constable, keen to make her mark on the murder task force. Her male colleagues believe Maeve’s empathy makes her weak, 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? And when so much of the evidence they leave behind has gone up in smoke?

A really strong Detective Story Read with style

The three narrators are excellent and they tell a superbly crafted tale in a totally absorbing way.
The plot is simple and the number of characters is small enough to be well developed and you get plenty time to get to know them.
It is a strange book in that it seems to have so little action and drama but it is wonderfully captivating and creates and urgent demand for the reader to understand
Absolute pleasure this one and I will be checking out more of Jane Casey's catalogue
Definitely worth a listen.
