    Description

    The Sunday Times best seller and winner of the Irish Independent crime fiction book of the year! 

    Guilty? 

    A year ago, Leo Stone was convicted of murdering two women and sentenced to life in prison. Now he’s been freed on a technicality, and he’s protesting his innocence. 

    Not guilty?

    DS Maeve Kerrigan and DI Josh Derwent are determined to put Stone back behind bars where he belongs, but the more Maeve digs, the less convinced she is that he did it. The wrong decision could be deadly...then another woman disappears in similar circumstances. Is there a copycat killer, or have they been wrong about Stone from the start?

    "You'll be checking the locks and looking over your shoulder after reading this one: Cruel Acts is clever, classy crime fiction with a conscience. I couldn't put it down." (Erin Kelly, best-selling author of He Said/She Said)

    "Jane Casey's brilliant storytelling pulled me straight into Maeve Kerrigan's world, leaving me breathless and wanting more. Brava!" (Fiona Barton, best-selling author of The Widow

    Not as gripping with this narrator

    I enjoyed the over all writing/plot/story - however, without the narration of Sara Coombs (who has read all of the other in the series) I was not as engaged as I have been with the prior books. If there is a next book with Lennon as the narrator, I may not bother with it.

    Bring back Sarah Coomes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Caroline Lennon isn't a bad narrator, she just isn't Maeve and Derwent. Sometimes, it's difficult to tell who is speaking with Caroline's reading. She needs to better differentiate the voices. It's really unfortunate when the narrator is changed mid-series unless the narrator needed to be changed. Sarah Coomes did a great job with Maeve and Derwent and all of the other characters. I feel like I know them and to have different voices makes it very hard to enjoy the book as I would have with Sarah reading the book.

    Anyway - it was a good book. I like that the characters continue to develop. We need to hear more about Derwent's relationship with Melissa. It was barely mentioned. I was surprised to see Godly so involved again. The author never explained his true role.

    I cannot wait for the next book in the series - but please bring back Sarah Coomes.

    I NEED Sarah Coomes back!!!

    I absolutely love Jane Casey, and Maeve Kerrigan and Josh Derwent are two of my favorite characters. I was in shock when I first downloaded this book and started to listen that Sarah Coomes had been replaced. I waited a few days, and decided to listen again to give Caroline Lennon a fair shot. I have to say my second listen, now that I was less frustrated, was a bit better, but still not great. Sarah Coomes brought Kerrigan to life, and to change narrators after 7 books is just terrible for us as listeners.

    Where is Sarah Coomes?!!!!

    I love this series but why would you change the narrator? I am so disappointed!!! You can’t change the voices of the characters on the 8th book! Please have Sarah Coomes come back and redo this book and any future books.

    Where is Sarah Coomes?

    Where is Sarah Coomes? I’m sure Jane Casey has written another great addition to the series, but this replacement narrator on book 8, is not Maeve. What a disappointment. Caroline Lennon may be a great narrator for other series/books but not for this one.

    I Love This New Narrator!

    I must be in the minority here, but I love Caroline Lennon's narration. A big improvement over Sarah Coomes! Sarah had a lovely voice when she chose to tone it down, but I hated the way she did men's voices and the breathy, hyper style. I find Caroline's much more listenable, and I like how she tells the story as if she really understands and likes it. All this complaining! You may miss Sarah Coomes but Caroline Lennon is certainly not "bad."

    The story itself is one of my faves in the series. It's really well done. One of the more interesting cases with a nice twist at the end.

    Terrible Narration!

    I’ve loved the series but this narrator is horrible! I did not enjoy this book nearly as much as the others, most likely due to the narration.

    Good story, missing old narrator

    I always love the books from this series. I read this one first and am now listening to the audio version. I am very disappointed they changed narrator though. I very much preferred Sarah Coomes. Not sure if I'll buy the next audiobook as well.

    Great except for narration.

    Not sure what happened but the usual narrator for the Maeve Kerrigan series changed in this book, and not for the better. Not only did she have a different voice but the accent seemed off as well. It made listening to the story much harder.

    Again a super book

    These books are highly addictive, very good plots, tense atmosphere, a bit of humour here and there. And on top: extremely well narrated! Highly recommendable!

    A beautifully woven thriller.

    You can clearly see the scenes better than in a movie. It's like sneaking in the lives of meanwhile good friends. And with every book I fall deeper in lover with Derwent 😀
