Jane Casey

Genres: Crime | Fiction | Irish Writing | Novel | Professional Development

Jane Casey is no stranger to the crime world. Married to a criminal barrister, she’s got the inside track on some of the country’s most dangerous offenders, giving her writing an unsettlingly realistic feel. This authenticity has made her novels international bestsellers and critical successes. They have been nominated for several awards and in 2015 Jane won both the Mary Higgins Clark Award and Irish Crime Novel of the Year for The Stranger You Know and After the Fire, respectively. In 2019, Cruel Acts (the eighth book in her Jane Kerrigan series of crime novels) was chosen as Irish Crime Novel of the Year at the Irish Book Awards. Born in Dublin, Jane now lives in southwest London with her family. Her new book The Killing Kind is a standalone novel and was published by Harper Collins in February 2022.
