Shortlisted for the Theakston Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year 2019 

'Somebody has been here before us. And he's still here . . .'

When a body is discovered in the remote depths of the Highlands, DCI Karen Pirie finds herself in the right place at the right time. Unearthed with someone's long-buried inheritance, the victim seems to belong to the distant past - until new evidence suggests otherwise, and Karen is called in to unravel a case where nothing is as it seems.

It's not long before an overheard conversation draws Karen into the heart of a different case, however - a shocking crime she thought she'd already prevented.

As she inches closer to the twisted truths at the centre of these murders, it becomes clear that she's dealing with a version of justice terrifyingly different to her own . . .

Number one bestseller and queen of crime Val McDermid returns with her most breathtakingly atmospheric and exhilarating novel yet.

MEDIA REVIEWS

There is nothing more gratifying than watching a master craftswoman at work, and she is on fine form here - Observer

Another stellar read from McDermid, and further evidence that her "Queen of Crime" status will not be challenged - Scotsman

The masterly handling of the pace and plot, blended with brilliant characterisation, show why best-selling writer Val McDermid retains her title of new Queen of Crime - People

McDermid's deceptively languid style, sly black humour and metronomic sense of pacing delivers a compulsively readable tale - Irish Times

Her trademark combination of macabre suspense and a light touch keep you reading gratefully - Sunday Express

“4 stars”

I have read all of Val McDermid's books and I have to admit I found it a little hard to get into this particular title at first. I have read the others in this series and felt engaged with Karen Pirie so was... More

“"Like Trevor Eve...but less shouty!"”

Well, this was my first Val McDermid book and it certainly won't be my last!

I was a mite concerned coming in at book five of the Karen Pirie series, but I shouldn't have worried. While there are a few nods... More
