Val McDermid

Scottish crime writer McDermid’s eighth novel featuring Detective Chief Inspector Carol Jordan and psychologist Dr. Tony Hill picks up where The Retribution (2011) left off. The estranged crime-fighting duo have gone their separate ways -- until a woman is found murdered in an abandoned London flat. A serial killer is on the loose, and all his missing victims resemble blonde-haired, blue-eyed Jordan. Time is of the essence when Tony becomes a suspect and Jordan is next on the killer’s list. McDermid’s clever latest will keep even her die-hard fans guessing.
