After the Fire
After the Fire. Three people are killed in a fire at the Maudling Estate housing project, one of whom was a wealthy politician who seemed to be distinctly out of place in this setting. Maeve and her boss, Josh Derwent, go at each other with fervor in this installment, and both are developed with more depth and complexity than in the earlier novels. Josh’s boss, Una Burt, has his number, and that adds to the plot in interesting ways. While the mystery is well done, I find it is the characters that I enjoy most in Casey’s novels. Readers who enjoy character-driven crime fiction are those most likely to enjoy this novel and this series. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase After the Fire from amazon.com.
