Review: The Kill

The Kill
The Kill by Jane Casey

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

As with the last one, this was a page turner and for a me a welcome break from struggling with other books.
The romance took an interesting turn, two near-sex scenes played out different from my expactation, one bordering on rape, the other was left hanging.
The case - or are they cases and the revisiting of old enemies takes some nice turns. The story and the meandering investigation keeps you guessing, at least in my case. Some facts (key facts) are only told in the who-dunnit-reveal, Agatha Christie-like, so the reader has no real chance to solve the puzzle before.
The ending has a nasty surprise, and with that two lines of the story remain open for the next book, which is not yet published.
Highly recommended. As a standalone you miss out on some background, but not much, the main facts are explained.
