"London police detective Maeve Kerrigan has spent plenty of time at Murchison House. One of the many cement high-rise towers comprising the Maudling Estate housing project, Murchison Tower is home to a motley mix of society. From domestic abuse victims and elderly widows with nowhere else to turn to its flourishing criminal elements, Maeve is familiar with many of its occupants by name or reputation. But when a fire breaks out at Murchison House that consumes the top floors and leaves three dead, Maeve and her colleagues are startled to learn the identity of one of the victims. Geoff Armstrong was a wealthy, notoriously right-wing London politician - the last person they'd expect to find in a place like the Maudling Estate. And things get even murkier when evidence surfaces indicating Armstrong was murdered before the fire broke out. Was his death connected to the fire? To the other deaths at Murchison Tower? And what was he doing there in the first place? Jane Casey's next riveting mystery featuring beloved detective Maeve Kerrigan will keep readers turning the pages from the opening scene to the stunning conclusion"-- Provided by publisher.

I read Jane Casey's newest book first and then had to read the rest in order. Now, of course, I will have to reread the last one. She is one of the best crime writers I have read. Realistic in a women's point of view of the British detective in a London murder squad. She doesn't mince on the realities of no sleep, dealing with male comments about women on the force, the very real politics within the force that can affect the outcome of an investigation, facing violent situations, and of course relationships and friendships within and without the squad. Hard to put down and wanting another Jane Casey book as soon as I've finished. Quality writing.

From beginning, felt that I was missing something......maybe I should have read earlier books re the main characters. Otherwise well written and easy to follow.
