Opening with the thoughts of a serial killer and then continuing with short chapters, this quickly draws the reader into the lives of the profiler Tony Hill, the victims, relatives of the victims and the other police officers (interestingly mainly female). Val McDermid certainly knows how to keep the suspense going. The reader becomes caught up with the disturbed thoughts of the psychopathic killer, with the horror and pain of the victims and with the grief of the friends and relatives of the missing persons. She also deals with the difficult relationship between Hill and his ex-partner Carol Jordan. Although the book has many dark and horrific moments, it is also about relationships all of which are believable and some are rewarding. It is a very compulsive read indeed.
Guilt and grief have driven a wedge between long time crime-fighting partners psychologist Tony Hill and ex-DCI Carol Jordan. But just because they're not talking doesn't mean the killing stops. Someone is killing women. Women who bear a disturbing resemblance to Carol Jordan. And when the evidence begins to point in a disturbing direction, thinking the unthinkable seems the only possible answer. Cornered by events, Tony and Carol are forced to fight for themselves and each other as never before...
