The residents of Bradfield are devastated when their star midfielder dies, the victim of a bizarre, seemingly motiveless murder. In a hospital, recovering from injuries, criminal profiler and psychologist Dr. Tony Hill struggles to make sense of the fragments of information he can gather in order to help his ally, Detective Chief Inspector Carol Jordan, bring a killer to justice. Then an explosion rips through a soccer stadium, leaving dozens dead and many more injured, and Jordan finds herself pushed to the margins of the investigation by the intelligence services. Despite the dark places in their relationship, Tony and Carol remain the best hope for uncovering the truth about an ever-increasing series of unspeakable crimes. Are they terrorist attacks, a personal vendetta—or something even more sinister? Download and start listening now!

    " Well I couldn't put down the book... it was great reading "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jennifer Doolan | 1/28/2014

    " I usually like reading Val McDermid books but this one took a while to get into and I felt like it wasn't until near the end of the book that it got exciting. I wouldn't recommend this one but I recommend others by the same author. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ruth | 1/26/2014

    " A cracking good read. Tony Hill confined to bed by a damaged knee, solves a series of poisonings and a bomb attack. Rather too many sexual allusions (do I need to know the sexual preference of his team?) and too much swearing for my liking. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Naomi | 1/25/2014

    " I think this is my favorite Tony Hill book thus far. Not as twisted and graphic as some of them, but incredibly well written with excellent character development. I think this book also book gave the best insight as to the quirkiness of Tony Hill with the introduction of his mother. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori | 1/17/2014

    " intrigue, different form of murder and the 2 leads are at each other's throats, what could be better. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Philip Benge | 12/19/2013

    " Very dark, very adult and very good "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leah | 12/17/2013

    " Like this author's characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Courtney | 11/17/2013

    " Not my favorite, but it would do in a pinch. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary G. | 9/28/2013

    " One of the best Tony Hill/Carol Jordan books. Brought to life new aspects of the characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynn Weber | 8/11/2013

    " Another solid Val McDermid mystery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Suzanne | 7/10/2013

    " Very entertaining and very difficult to put down! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne | 7/6/2013

    " I'm not sure you can get this in the US yet. I had my boss buy it for me in the UK. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wilma Rebstock | 3/10/2013

    " This particular novel of Val VcDermid didn't grab me as many of her others did. It was a good way to spend a few days though. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katherine | 1/18/2013

    " Getting back to normal but still not quite as good as 'Wire In The Blood'. To bad the author went down that stupid relationship road between the two main characters. Makes for very strange and unrealistic scenarios that spoil her books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 1/18/2012

    " a right rip roaring read! Sad now, as have read all the Tony Hill/Carol Jordan books - will have to start picketing McDermid's publisher for a new one! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gina | 4/2/2011

    " Another engrossing book from the Tony Hill mystery series. In this book what appears to be an Islamic terrorist attack is something quite different. Then there is another series of murders by poison that might or might not be connected. Tony Hill makes an interesting, but flawed, hero. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa42 | 3/27/2011

    " This book was one of my favorites in the series. I liked the two very different crimes going on and all the twists and turns with both. As always its the relationship between Tony and Carol that keeps me coming back for more. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kaylol | 12/9/2010

    " I've come to think that anything by Val McDermid has to be good. This one's excellent "

    " I liked the DVD but the but was even better "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pam | 8/16/2010

    " Enjoyed this installment in McDermid's Tony Hill/Carol Jordan series. The two mysteries are quite interesting, and the complicated nature of Tony and Carol's relationship is always compelling. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gina | 5/21/2010

    " Another engrossing book from the Tony Hill mystery series. In this book what appears to be an Islamic terrorist attack is something quite different. Then there is another series of murders by poison that might or might not be connected. Tony Hill makes an interesting, but flawed, hero. "

    " Complex story lines, fast pacing, & great character development keep you spellbound. Volume five in a consistently excellent series from one of my favorite authors. "
