Description
"Smooth. Confident. Deeply satisfying. What else can you say about McDermid's writing? . . . The Jordan-Hill relationship remains the star of the show . . . It's a match made in heaven amid hell on earth."-- Entertainment Weekly (editor's choice) on The Torment of Others Widely recognized as one of our finest crime writers, with numerous accolades and legions of devoted readers worldwide, internationally bestselling author Val McDermid is back with the latest installment in her much beloved series featuring psychologist Tony Hill and former police detective Carol Jordan. Splinter the Silence is an adrenaline-fuelled rollercoaster guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat: a masterful novel centered on the mysterious deaths of several women who were the victims of vicious cyberbullying. Is it violence if it's virtual? The outspoken women targeted by the increasingly cruel internet trolls and bullies would probably say so. For some of them, the torrents of bile and vicious threats prove too much. They begin to silence themselves in a series of high-profile suicides. Or do they? Tony Hill isn't convinced. But he's the only one. Former cop Carol Jordan is too busy messing up her life to care. Until she gets an unexpected second chance. Now it's game on, and the stakes have never been higher. Unpredictable and unputdownable, Splinter the Silence is a must-read that cements Val McDermid's place as one of the best crime writers in the business. "Hill and Jordan dominate as brilliantly as ever."-- Times Saturday Review (UK) on Cross and Burn
