The Reckoning by Jane Casey is a TRUE Thrill Ride!

The Reckoning by Jane Casey is a TRUE Thrill Ride!

By Amy Lignor

From the prolific author who created “The Burning,” comes a new title that is extremely interesting.

As readers begin, they are greeted with a protagonist who is, quite literally, the ultimate ‘sicko’ hero—using his time and energy to get rid of child sex offenders in some of the most gruesome ways possible; from fractured skulls and slit throats to a former ‘Man of God’ who is shot in the head. Although this may seem ugly, the punishments seem to fit the crimes.

The police department is on his tail. Detective Constable Maeve Kerrigan is placed on the case while she recovers from her last triumph, spending her time moving into a new apartment and a relationship with her colleague, Rob Langton…a partnership that may not be the best thing for her right now. Maeve is partnered in this very difficult case with a new Detective Inspector by the name of Josh Derwent. A complete chauvinist, Josh is difficult to get along with as he’s the ‘boss’ on the case and never lets anyone forget it—especially Maeve.

Along comes John Skinner, a criminal who admits that it was he who ordered the killings of these ‘pedos,’ as the cops refer to them, because his daughter disappeared and he’s sure that one of them had something to do with it. Instead of this being an open-and-shut case, more bodies begin to surface and DNA appears that belongs to a girl who disappeared eighteen months earlier, opening yet another door for the cops to walk through.

This is a very busy story. From a multitude of threats to the police and the criminals; to a stalker with a camera and many questions involving the crimes that make the police start to doubt their own co-workers, the action never ends.

Brilliantly written, Maeve Kerrigan’s third time in the spotlight keeps the reader guessing until the last page. But even if you haven’t read the first two, this exciting story will certainly stand alone.

Until Next Time, Everybody,

Amy

  The Levelling Film Review by Kam Williams Prodigal Daughter Tries to Reconcile with Estranged Dad in Haunting Parable of Biblical Proportions It's not very clear whether Harry Catto's (Joe Blakemore) death was a murder or a suicide.
