The first book in the Maeve Kerrigan series is told from two POV’s. That of Maeve Kerrigan, a young up and coming detective constable, and Louise North, a solicitor working at a financial firm who happens to be a friend of the latest victim, Rebecca.

The Burning starts off on a high note when a young woman fears she might be the next victim of the serial killer, “The Burning Man” and decides that she isn’t going down without a fight. Unfortunately for her and the residents of London she is mistaken, and the “The Burning Man” is still stalking the streets.

Maeve and her co-worker Rob Langton are investing the horrific murders of the five women who are supposed to be victims of “The Burning Man”. As they delve into the life of Rebecca (the fifth victim), they discover that everything doesn’t completely add up. And their investigation takes them someplace they hadn’t expected…

The Burning is a cleverly written crime mystery that is perfectly suited for a rainy weekend. Maeve is a solid strong character who is dealing with the stress of her job and her relationship with her live in boyfriend Ian. I enjoyed witnessing the banter between her and Rob. They have a good rapport and work well together. It wasn’t as much of a psychological thriller like I had first anticipated, but I did enjoy it and found the story to flow nicely.

**I received this book on behalf of the Publisher in exchange for nothing but my honest opinion.**

This is another mystery novel that focuses on the search for a serial killer. The bodies that are found are gruesome but there is not a lot of violence. The emphasis is on the methodical sifting through clues, and data, and CCTV tapes looking for evidence to solve the crime.

I thought this was a fine police procedural. I liked the emphasis on Maeve as the lone female policewoman in her group, and the issues that this caused (for her). It was realistic (I think) in that many men she worked with treated her well, others went out of their way to poke fun or make things difficult for her. Yet, Maeve is always determined to do a good job and keeps plugging away. There are no perfect characters in this book; all of them are human with flaws, arguing and making mistakes.

For me, the element that elevated this beyond the standard police procedural was the use of two primary narrators, both female. The alternation between the two gives the reader some insight into knowledge that Maeve does not have.

I also liked that this had a very exciting finish. I felt the resolution was fairly obvious, but I was still glued to the book in the last 75 pages.

I initially was offered this book to read by the publisher. There was a limited time to access it and I saw that I was going to miss that, so I purchased the e-book.

The Burning is the first book in the Maeve Kerrigan series. London is on edge. A serial killer dubbed the Burning Man has struck four times. Four young females have become victims. The police department is feeling the heat from the public and press to solve the murders.

The book starts out fast with a young drunken women who accepts a ride home with a man. She smells petrol and makes the leap to assume he is the Burning Man. Detective Constable Mauve Kerrigan is called to the hospital to talk to the young girl. Her supervisor feels the young girl will open up to her.

Maeve is soon involved in another murder. Is it the fifth murder of the Burning Man or is it a copy cat? She is put on the trail of looking into the murder of Rebecca Haworth. The chapters are told from two POV. One viewpoint is Mauve's and the other is Louise North who was the best friend of Rebecca Haworth.

What made this book so enjoyable for me was the character of Maeve Kerrigan. She is working in an all male environment and putting up with the jibes and teasing with dignity. She has tenacity and keeps trying to find the truth to what has occurred. She is motivated to move up through the ranks. She is a very good Detective Constable. The author has written a very good character driven book with a solid mystery. I have now found a new series to follow as I want to see what Maeve encounters next in her job and personal life.

Maeve has appeal and potential but she is not a fully developed character. Her naivete comes through, particularly in her choices for romance in her life. Seriously, physically challenged due to an encounter with the serial killer and she is off to a sexual escapade at a hotel with a co-worker. Really??? Although, she does seem to charm her boss as the young female detective on the squad.
The plot lacked much tension. One story line centered on the serial killer. He treated his victims gruesomely but the capture and confession was finalized and wrapped up and tied with a bow very rapidly. The second story line of Rebecca quickly presented two possible killers. I easily picked the killer. Even the reveal of the killer did not offer much tension or sinister quality to it.
To my mind there are other mystery series featuring young female leads (Lacey Flint, Anna Travis) who have more dimension and interest for me, although in the romance department all exhibit the same level of naive decision making.
Overall, the book is well written but this is not a roller coaster ride, just a quick trip on a merry go round.
