Uncovering The Truth
Let The Dead Speak by Jane Casey is a nail biting thriller that had me hooked from the start. It is the seventh book in the Maeve Kerrigan series but can be read as a stand-alone.
Written from the point of view of Maeve Kerrigan, the reader easily engages with the open and honest style from the start. The reader views all the action and evidence as Maeve ‘sees’ it. I tried to guess the outcome but failed miserably.
The book was full of twists and turns that had me on the edge of my seat. The storyline was fabulous and it would make a wonderful movie.
The novel shows that all is never as it seems. People show one face to the world and are quite another person underneath. Trying to uncover the truth can be a difficult job.
There are many themes including that of the sins of the parents. These should not be passed down the generations. This also links to the theme of guilt. It seems like everyone has something to hide.
Let The Dead Speak was definitely a roller coaster of a thriller which I really enjoyed. It was a very different genre from my usual choices but I shall be hunting out and devouring more by Jane Casey.
A fabulous read that will keep you guessing and gasping.
