Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "When eighteen-year-old Chloe Emery returns to her West London home she finds her mother missing, the house covered in blood. Everything points to murder, except for one thing: there's no sign of the body. London detective Maeve Kerrigan and the homicide team turn their attention to the neighbours. The ultra-religious Norrises are acting suspiciously; their teenage daughter and Chloe Emery definitely have something to hide. Then there's William Turner, once accused of stabbing a schoolmate and the neighborhood's favorite criminal. Is he merely a scapegoat, or is there more behind the charismatic façade? As a body fails to materialize, Maeve must piece together a patchwork of testimonies and accusations. Who is lying, and who is not? And soon Maeve starts to realize that not only will the answer lead to Kate Emery, but more lives may hang in the balance. With Let the Dead Speak, Jane Casey returns with another taut, richly drawn novel that will grip readers from the opening pages to the stunning conclusion"--

    *Starred Review* Getting to the truth is no easy job for newly promoted Detective Sergeant Maeve Kerrigan and close colleague DCI Josh Derwent. Logical assumptions prove false, and wrong turns are taken after the partners are called to the blood-soaked home of divorced Kate Emery. Chloe Emery, 18, Kate's only child, returns unexpectedly early from her remarried father's house to encounter the slaughterhouse scene, which sends the homicide unit searching for Kate's body. Meanwhile, Chloe, determined not to return to her father's house, stays at the home of neighbors Eleanor and Oliver Norris, whose 13-year-old daughter, Bethany, is Chloe's closet friend. When the two girls disappear, the diligent investigators gradually find that the neighborhood hides a trove of secrets, some of them long-buried by the Christian fundamentalist Norris family. As suspicion turns from one person to another, and more bodies appear, Casey also reveals some inner thoughts of Derwent and Kerrigan, as each confronts hard truths about his or her life and work, with Derwent forthcoming about his fears. These character-driven Kerrigan mysteries are among the genre's finest, and the last page here is likely to leave readers breathless and longing for Casey's next. Copyright 2017 Booklist Reviews.
