'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' - The Observer 

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

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

“"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
