Val McDermid is a world-class crime writer whose books have sold
millions worldwide. Now she’s back with a chilling, high-velocity thriller
featuring her immensely popular creations, clinical psychologist Dr. Tony Hill
and detective Carol Jordan.
Tony Hill has had a good run. He and detective Carol Jordan have put
away scores of dangerous criminals at a rate that colleagues envy. But there is
one serial killer who has shaped and defined their careers, and whose evil
surpasses all others: Jacko Vance, ex-celebrity and sociopath. Jacko’s
brilliance and utter lack of remorse haven’t left Tony’s mind for a moment in
the ten years since the criminal’s imprisonment. Now Jacko has escaped from
prison and, even more twisted and cunning than before, is focused on wreaking
revenge on Tony and Carol for his years of confinement.
Tony and Carol don’t know when or where Jacko will strike. All they
know is that he will cause them to feel fear like they’ve never known.
A chilling, utterly gripping tour de force, The Retribution is
the ideal introduction or reintroduction to the world of Tony Hill and Carol Jordan.
It is an unforgettable read.
