AFTER THE FIRE JANE CASEY

SOME THINGS CAN NEVER BE FORGIVEN

ARSON, ACCIDENT 

OR MURDER?

After a fire rips through a North London tower block, two bodies are found locked in an 11th floor flat. But is the third victim that ensures the presence of detective Maeve Kerrigan and the murder squad.
It appears that controversial MP Geoff Armstrong, trapped by the fire, chose to jump to his death rather than wait for rescue. But what was such a right-wing politician doing in the deprived, culturally diverse Maudling Estate?
As Maeve and her senior colleague, Derwent, pick through the wreckage, they uncover the secret world of the 11th floor, where everyone seems to have something to hide.
MY REVIEW

This is my first book that I have read by Jane Casey. As a fire rips through Murchison House block of flats on Maudling Estate in North London, the questions the police want to know was could this have been an accident or was it arson?  The fire seemed to of have started on the 10th floor. Two bodies are found in an 11th floor flat. I highly recommend reading After the Fire.
This is a lively, gritty thriller. Every scene is well-timed. The characters are quickly, expertly drawn. Readers will be looking for every clue.
After the Fire. For those readers who are coming  to this series for the first time, like myself, I promise you that you don’t need to have read the other books to understand what takes place in After the Fire. However, there are references to past events and storylines that run through several books. The Maudling Estate featured in The Kill, as did some minor characters who assume greater importance in After the Fire.
