This was honestly one of the best books I have read in a long time, a good slow burning start that explodes into a great story that I just couldn’t put down. I loved the characters Carol, oh so human with all of her faults and Tony is just a nice guy with a heart of gold. I haven’t read the others in this series but you can be sure I will be going back to pick up the other 8 books that I have previously missed out on. Beautifully written by Val McDermid who is definitely at the top of the tree in this genre.
The Blurb –
‘That day, waiting had been almost unbearable. He wanted something more spectacular, something that couldn’t be ignored. These deaths needed to make a mark . . .’
Psychological profiler Tony Hill is trained to see patterns, to decode the mysteries of human behaviour, and when he comes across a series of suicides among women tormented by vicious online predators, he begins to wonder if there is more to these tragedies than meets the eye. Similar circumstances, different deaths. Could it be murder? But what kind of serial killer wants his crimes to stay hidden?
Former DCI Carol Jordan has her own demons to confront, but with lives at stake, Tony and Carol begin the hunt for the most dangerous and terrifying kind of killer – someone who has nothing to fear and nothing to lose . . .
