Waterstones Says

Reuniting Tony Hill and Carol Jordan in a grisly tale of buried remains and disturbing secrets, How the Dead Speak is vintage McDermid. Unfailingly gripping and meticulously plotted, this is another one-sitting crime thriller from an acknowledged titan of the genre.

Shortlisted for the British Book Awards Crime & Thriller Book of the Year 2020

Longlisted for the Theakston Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year 2020

Longlisted for the The McIlvanney Prize for Scottish Crime Book of the Year 2020

After an explosive case that forced Tony Hill and Carol Jordan to reassess everything they thought they knew about right and wrong, both are dealing with the fallout in their own separate ways. While Tony must pay the price for his actions, Carol is conducting investigations into suspected miscarriages of justice.

But when a shocking discovery is made on a construction site, and skeletal remains are found to belong to a killer who is supposedly alive and in prison, suddenly, Tony and Carol are brought into each other's orbit once again...

The next eagerly anticipated, electrifying thriller from number one bestseller and queen of crime, Val McDermid, featuring the unforgettable Tony Hill and Carol Jordan.
