Pub. Date:

The Number One bestselling crime series featuring Tony Hill, hero of TV's Wire in the Blood, written by the award-winning Val McDermid. This is a psychological thriller - and serial killer - that will keep you up at night.

For some, there is nothing so sweet, so thrilling, as the torment of others ...

A dead girl lies on a blood-soaked mattress, her limbs spread in a parody of ecstasy. The scene matches a series of murders which ended when irrefutable forensic evidence secured the conviction of one Derek Tyler. But Tyler's been locked up in a mental institution for two years, barely speaking a word - except to say that 'the Voice' told him to do it.

Top criminal psychologist Dr Tony Hill is prepared to think the unthinkable - this is not a copycat murder but something much stranger. While DCI Carol Jordan and her team mount a desperate and dangerous undercover police operation to trap the murderer, Hill heads towards a terrifying face-off with one of the most perverse killers he has ever encountered...

Dr. Tony Hill and Detective Chief Inspector Carol Jordan return for the first time since The Last Temptation in A Golden Dagger nominee for 2004 Best Novel of the Year Devastated after the vicious assault she suffered in The Last Temptation, Detective Chief Inspector Carol Jordan has returned to Bradfield to resume her career. But she is surprised to discover that clinical psychologist Dr. Tony Hill has followed her there to take up a post in a high security mental hospital. When she is assigned a case involving the grotesque murder of a prostitute, she turns to him for help. The killing resembles in every detail a series of murders that took place a couple of years before-for which Derek Tyler was tried, convicted and sentenced. Another murder soon follows. The police mount a full investigation and this terrifying scenario presents itself: is it possible the killer is someone on the inside of the investigation?
