BLOG TOUR ~ The Cutting Place by Jane Casey

Hi Everyone,

Today is my stop for the final day of the Blog Tour for The Cutting Place by Jane Casey where I have a review from her latest novel. I was thrilled to be asked by Ciara Swift from Harper Collins Ireland who organised this tour to take part along with some other fab book bloggers. You can find out who else has taken part in this fabulous Blog Tour at the end of this review so without further ado, here it is:


1. Filthy rich
2. Extremely powerful
3. Totally ruthless
4. Guilty

You've got to be in the club to know the truth.

Everyone's heard the rumors abour elite gentlemen's clubs, where the champagne flows freely, the parties are the height of decadence and the secrets arex darker than you could possibly imagine.

DS Maeve Kerrigan is back on the case but finds herself in an unfamiliar world of wealth, luxury and completely ruthless behavious as she investigates the murder of Paige Hargreaves, a young journalist. She was working on a story about the Chiron Club, a private society for the richest and most privileged men in London but then she disappeared.

It becomes clear to Maeve that the members of this club have many secrets. But even Maeve is hiding her own secrets, even from her partner DI Josh Derwent. Will she uncover the truth about Paige's death? Or will time run out for Maeve??

Well, I didn't like it.........I LOVED it. I was gripped from the first page and couldn't turn the pages fast enough to see how this all panned out for DS Maeve Kerrigan and DI Josh Derwent, it was brilliant. Full of action, secrets, lies and been led down the wrong paths on a few occasions. The story is told in two timelines, present day and 2 years ago which are intertwined and expertly tied up as you reach the end. Jane deals with a few themes throughout this storyline including domestic abuse which was researched and handled quite sensitively. I'd even go as far as saying that this is one of the best police procedurals novels that I've read in a long time.

This is Jane's 10th novel in the Maeve Kerrigan series and ashamedly this is the first one that I've read, you can jump in and read this without reading the others but in a way I wish I'd have read the others to get the stories and backgrounds of the characters, however before the world came to a lockdown I'd reserved the whole series in my local library so I'll have something to look forward to when life starts getting back to normal again.


The Cutting Place is available in all good bookstores and I know many of them are able to deliver/post out books when ordered and it's also available on Kindle where it is currently £2.99 at the time of publication of this review.
