I bought a Kindle cheapie of one of the books in the middle of this series about Maeve Kerrigan, a junior detective in the Met's detective squad and got completely hooked, reading every one of the series that I could get my hands on. What sets this series apart for me is the charecterisation, these are real people with real problems, who make mistakes and wrong calls, but they aren't one note, nobody, with the exception of one oaffish DC, is without their good points and the story lines are intriguingly twisty so you are never quite sure what's going to happen.

 

Jane Casey is Irish, like her heroine, and is married to a criminal barrister which must give her a considerable amount of insight int the criminal mind. I'm glad to say that though these books are certainly not cosy she does not dwell on gory details.

 

There's a story arc going through the series so it's worth while starting at the beginning, though I began with no 4 and still enjoyed the earlier ones. Highly reccommended - it's a long time since I woke up at 3 in the morning and knewthere was no point in trying to go back to sleep until I'd read at least another couple of chapters of my book.

I am on the 4th book now and they are a welcome relief from the real world.  I started a very good Orhan Pamuk book, but couldn't stick with it.
