Ausgezeichnet: DIVA Literary Awards - Best Novel 2017, Nominiert: Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year 2018
Discover the breathtaking new novel from the inimitable queen of crime and number one bestseller Val McDermid, featuring two of the most iconic and unforgettable characters in crime fiction: Tony Hill and Carol Jordan
'Murdered people don't kill themselves . . .'
A quiet night on a country road. The stillness shattered by a car engulfed in flames, and a burned body discovered in the driver's seat. As the investigation unfolds, DCI Carol Jordan and psychological profiler Tony Hill quickly realise that this is more than just a tragic accident. And so begins the hunt for a truly terrifying killer, someone who believes he is invisible, untraceable and untouchable.
As other victims are found to have met the same terrible fate, and with more women at risk, Tony and Carol are drawn into a dark and twisted web of fear and revenge that will force them to question their own ideas of justice . . .
'The queen of crime is still at the top of her game' Independent
[T]horoughly pleasing, engaging, indeed compelling, a very fine piece of craftsmanship. It will reward those who have followed the Jordan and Hill sequence, and send latecomers back to the earlier novels. Scotsman
