I have had a couple of the Maeve Kerrigan books on my kindle for a while but hadn't got around to reading them. When I found that a short story prequel had been published I seized the opportunity and started reading immediately. It was a change reading a detective novel, and I read a lot of them, from a rookie's point of view. I really enjoyed my introduction to Maeve,liked her, and am interested in how her relationships with fellow characters develop over the series. I won't be leaving it long before I read another book by Jane Casey.
