‘The Queen of Crime reigns again with a thrill from Hill’ Independent

‘No one can plot or tell a story like she can’ Daily Express

‘That day, waiting had been almost unbearable. He wanted something more spectacular, something that couldn’t be ignored. These deaths needed to make a mark . . .’

Psychological profiler Tony Hill is trained to see patterns, to decode the mysteries of human behaviour, and when he comes across a series of suicides among women tormented by vicious online predators, he begins to wonder if there is more to these tragedies than meets the eye. Similar circumstances, different deaths. Could it be murder? But what kind of serial killer wants his crimes to stay hidden?

Former DCI Carol Jordan has her own demons to confront, but with lives at stake, Tony and Carol begin the hunt for the most dangerous and terrifying kind of killer – someone who has nothing to fear and nothing to lose . . .

Number one bestseller Val McDermid returns with a gripping, chilling, suspenseful novel featuring two of the most distinctive characters in crime fiction: Tony Hill and Carol Jordan

Reviews

No one rivals Val McDermid's skill at writing truly terrifying thrillers
goodhousekeeping.co.uk
With the deaths of PD James and Ruth Rendell, Val McDermid is the obvious successor as Britain's Queen of Crime. For me, she has already held that title for many years. Her latest novel, starring the socially awkward but clever criminal profiler Tony Hill and ace detective Carol Jordan, demonstrates her supremacy
Marcel Berlins, The Times
The Queen of Crime reigns again with a thrill from Hill
Independent
McDermid remains unrivalled . . . Brilliant
Observer
McDermid still writes with the telltale verve that's won her the accolade queen of psychological thrillers
Guardian
The real mistress of psychological gripping thrillers; no one can plot or tell a story like she can
