Someone is brutally killing women. Women who bear a striking resemblance to former DCI Carol Jordan. The connection is too strong to ignore and soon psychological profiler Tony Hill finds himself dangerously close to the investigation, just as the killer is closing in on his next target.
This is a killer like no other, hell-bent on inflicting the most severe and grotesque punishment on his prey. As the case becomes ever-more complex and boundaries begin to blur, Tony and Carol must work together once more to try and save the victims, and themselves.
A breathless, thrilling mystery from the number one bestseller.

McDermid is as smooth a practitioner of crime fiction as anyone out there * New York Times Book Review *
McDermid earns her customary high marks for planting clues, mastering procedural detail and maintaining suspense as the net closes. As usual, however, the endlessly fraught relationships among the continuing characters are the real draw. * Kirkus Reviews *
McDermid's fiendishly clever eighth novel featuring forensic psychologist Tony Hill and detective Carol Jordan... is not to be missed * Publisher's Weekly *
The book can be read as a story about a hunter/ killer. But it is also a fascinating study of his opponents, the infinitely complex Hill and the clever Sleuth Jordan * Literary Review *
