Jane Casey has written ten crime novels for adults and three for teenagers. A former editor, she is married to a criminal barrister who ensures her writing is realistic and as accurate as possible.
This authenticity has made her novels international bestsellers and critical successes. The Maeve Kerrigan series has been nominated for many awards: in 2015 Jane won the Mary Higgins Clark Award for The Stranger You Know and Irish Crime Novel of the Year for After the Fire. In 2019, Cruel Acts was chosen as Irish Crime Novel of the Year at the Irish Book Awards. It was a Sunday Times bestseller.
Born in Dublin, Jane now lives in southwest London with her husband and two children.

An abstract summary might well suggest that this is a book that is wholly and exclusively concerned with the abuse of and violence towards, women. Certainly, this is a major issue, but it is so convincingly integrated into the fabric of the novel as a whole, that the book rises above any obvious message. It is an impressive crime novel by any standards. The plot is intricate, with plenty of unexpected turns. Even more absorbing are the relationships between the key characters. The tone of the exchanges between Maeve and Josh Derwent is particularly skilfully handled. Yes, at time, all teeters towards sentimentality, but there is more than enough harsh reality to offset that and powerful feeling is balanced with restraint. The book is somewhere between a psychological thriller and a police procedural. In my view it merges the two most successfully.
