Mapping the minds of murderers is what Dr. Tony Hill does better than anyone. So when a twisted killer starts targeting psychologists across Northern Europe, he's the obvious choice to track the executioner's mental and physical journey.

Except that Tony doesn't want to do this anymore.

But the case is about to come uncomfortably close to home. The next victim is a friend of his. And his former partner, DCI Carol Jordan, is herself in Germany, working undercover in a world where human life is cheaper than a drug deal. She needs his help as much as the beleaguered European police forces do.

Confronting the worst of contemporary crime and struggling to unravel roots that lie deep in the tormented past of Nazi atrocities and Statsi abuses, Tony and Carol are forced to battle for their survival against overwhelming odds.

Deftly merging the dark world of forensic psychology and the crime-streaked word of post-Cold War Europe, McDermid has created a truly original crime thriller for our time.

    " This is the first book from Tony Hill series by Val McDermid I've read. It was quite long book, but the characters are well defined and I wasn't confused who is who. The action was well conducted. Good crime book. "

    " Ultimately disapointing. I actually enjoyed most of this. It is a long book but it didn't drag (in fact the ending was rather rushed) and the multiple story lines kept it interesting. In fact it is actually 2 completely independent stories, which leads me to the first problem, why are there 2 stories? The 2nd story seems only to be there so that the profiler can be in Germany, a extremely complex mechanism for such a minor thing. It would have worked if, and here is my 2nd problem, this 2nd story was not totally abandoned at the end of the book with a ridiculous ending. With no actual evidence the profiler (with police support) confronted the suspect and they just killed him, just awful. My 3rd problem was the plot hinging observation of the undercover detective with the profiler, in a curtainless window at night, how contrived. It was a real shame as a lot of the book was very enjoyable and both stories had a lot of potential. I would not recommend. "

    " This novel had two stories going at the same time with a satisfactory ending for both,involving three police forces. Bravo for The Last Temptation for keeping me on the edge of my seat throughout. Excellent read. Worth every star I could give it. "

    " Very exciting, edge of my seat, page turner. It actually helps that I saw the BBC series, because the characters are very accurately portrayed there. "
