'The queen of crime is still at the top of her game' Independent

There is one serial killer who has shaped and defined police profiler Tony Hill's life. One serial killer whose evil surpasses all others. One serial killer who has the power to chill him to the bone: Jacko Vance.

And now Jacko is back in Tony's life. Even more twisted and cunning than ever before, he is focused on wreaking revenge on Tony - and DCI Carol Jordan - for the years he has spent in prison.

Tony doesn't know when Jacko will strike, or where. All he knows is that Jacko will cause him to feel fear like he has never known before - and devastate his life in ways he cannot imagine...

A gripping new thriller in the Tony Hill and Carol Jordan series, from the number one bestseller.

MEDIA REVIEWS
It's perhaps fitting that for McDermid's 25th novel she's revisited her most thrillingly murderous creation, Jacko Vance * Daily Mirror *
Val McDermid's 25th novel is stunningly good, but it comes with a health warning. It is truly disturbing * The Times *
McDermid never pulls her punches in her graphic descriptions of the evils men (and women) inflict on each other...tension filled from start to finish * Irish Independent *
Her writing is taut, her plotting pacy... McDermid is particularly good at analysing human damage and its effects * Scotsman *
To write one brilliant book is hard. To write 25 is a miracle. That is what Val McDermid has achieved over the course of her career and it's why she is a much-loved legend in the literary world...the pace here is flawless and the various storylines are expertly interwoven...a superb crime novel * Sunday Express *
Brilliant ... sensational ...unforgettable * Guardian *
It's a tribute to McDermid's skill as a storyteller that she deliberately creates a trio of central characters who are essentially incapable of conventional empathy yet still manages to sustain reader sympathy right through to the coldly brutal finale * Irish Times *
McDermid has pulled out all the stops, delivering a fast-moving tale * Herald *

“Very very good”

Being new to this author and this only being my second book I was apprehensive as to the content. Before I knew it I was sucked in to the plot and terrified that another murder would be commited before being caught.... More
