Number one bestselling author, Val McDermid, returns with her pulse-pounding, suspenseful new novel featuring two of the most distinctive and iconic characters in crime fiction: Tony Hill and Carol Jordan.

Murdered people don’t kill themselves…

When charred human remains are discovered in the driver's seat of a burning car, DCI Carol Jordan and psychological profiler Tony Hill are brought in to investigate. They soon discover that what appeared to be a terrible accident is, in fact, murder. 

Delving deeper into the case, they begin the dangerous hunt for a most sinister killer with the power to inflict untold fear and pain on their victims.

Book Ten in the Tony Hill and Carol Jordan series

The Tony Hill and Carol Jordan Series in reading order: The Mermaids Singing, The Wire in the Blood, The Last Temptation, The Torment of Others, Beneath the Bleeding, Fever of the Bone, The Retribution, Cross and Burn, Splinter the Silence, Insidious Intent.

Hailing from Kirkcaldy on the East Coast of Scotland, Val McDermid is a playwright, journalist and, first and foremost, one of the world’s most popular and consistently inventive crime writers.

MEDIA REVIEWS
[T]horoughly pleasing, engaging, indeed compelling, a very fine piece of craftsmanship. It will reward those who have followed the Jordan and Hill sequence, and send latecomers back to the earlier novels. * Scotsman *
Val McDermid, known as the queen of psychological thrillers, surpasses herself here, delivering one of the most surprising twists you'll read this year. Outstanding. * Irish Independent *
The tenth outing for the much-loved duo is a reliably engrossing thriller - and one that ends with a colossal reminder of just why McDermid has been the queen of crime for three decades. * Heat *
Elegantly plotted, it's pure class * Sunday Mirror *
Dark and expert crime writing . . . beautifully crafted * The Arts Desk *
McDermid ratchets up the tension . . . [her] most expressive and emotional novel to date, giving readers more than just a clever criminal to get their teeth into. * The National *
There aren't many to touch her for insight into the minds of hunter and hunted. -- Susan Hill
Here is another gripping crime novel by Val McDermid . . . an exciting book by one of today's most accomplished crime writers * Literary Review *
