Killing Us Softly

Jane Casey is one of the growing number of Irish authors who write both adult crime / mystery fiction and YA titles. Her latest offering, THE KILL (Ebury Press), is the fifth in her acclaimed London-based police procedural series featuring DC Maeve Kerrigan, and the blurb runs thusly:
COP KILLER STRIKES AGAIN!
  The tabloid headlines are lurid but accurate. A killer is terrorising London but this time it is the police who are the targets. And Maeve Kerrigan and her boss Josh Derwent are clueless as to why.
  But it will only be a matter of time before the murderer selects his next victim.
