Reviews

Praise for Cross and Burn "McDermid is at the top of her form in this sizzling story. . . . You will not put this one down until the final sentence."--Margaret Cannon, The Globe and Mail "Pure reading joy! Welcome back, queen of crime Val McDermid."--Jane Crooks Britt, The Florida Times-Union "Cross and Burn is a gripping read on a number of levels. . . . Val is back in top form with this novel. Satisfying on many different levels."--Deadly Pleasures "Val McDermid's compulsively readable Tony Hill and Carol Jordan series finds a fresh hell to discover in her latest installment. . . . While McDermid is top of her class when it comes to writing intelligent, twisty, suspenseful thrillers, one of her strongest talents as a writer is her concern about relationships. . . . Completely absorbing. The way the characters are drawn so three dimensionally enriches every part of McDermid's novels. Cross and Burn is well worth the reading journey."--Robin Agnew, Mystery Scene "Hill and Jordan dominate as brilliantly as ever."--The Times (Saturday Review) (UK) "Connoisseurs of the crime novel will happily devour veteran thriller writer McDermid's masterful blend of crisp prose, complex characters, and relentless suspense."--Allison Block, Booklist (starred review) "Enthralling and engrossing, perfect in every way. . . . There is no good place to stop reading Cross and Burn. The series . . . gets better and better. . . . Hill and Jordan, whether together or apart, are fascinating characters, and this latest installment of their lives is too good to miss--whether you've been along for the ride since the beginning or just jumped on the train."--Joe Hartlaub, Bookreporter.com "Cross and Burn, the new Val McDermid novel, is the eighth title in her Wire in the Blood series featuring Tony Hill, the psychologically scarred forensic profiler, and DCI Carol Jordan. . . . What makes this series stand out is not so much the novels' plots, good though they are, as their powerful characterization, together with the authority and conviction underpinning the settings. In this case, McDermid makes us believe in Bradfield and care about a host of characters--and, in particular, about the tangled relationship of Jordan and Hill."--Andrew Taylor, The Spectator (UK) "Fiendishly clever . . . The ingenious way in which [the villain] tests the mettle of Hill and Jordan is not to be missed by fans of the unusual sleuthing duo."--Publishers Weekly (starred review) "Fans of criminal psychologist Tony Hill and cop Carol Jordan will be delighted to see them pressed back into action. . . . As ever, McDermid's gift for taking ordinary, everyday events and giving them a sinister twist, plus her keen observations of human nature, make for a truly gripping tale."--Northamptonshire Telegraph (UK) "McDermid earns her customary high marks for planting clues, mastering procedural detail and maintaining suspense as the net closes. As usual, however, the endlessly fraught relationships among the continuing characters are the real draw."--Kirkus Reviews "Fans will admire Val for continuing to break borders and uncovering such intense and taboo issues. . . . McDermid unfolds a great study on human nature and the twisted individuals living on the fringes of society. . . . A tight assemblage of accidents just waiting to explode. . . snowballs into a chaotic and tense finale leaving little doubt about McDermid's expertise."--Michael Leonard, Curled Up with a Good Book (Blog) Praise for "Cross and Burn" "McDermid is at the top of her form in this sizzling story. . . .

And readers are again left to marvel at her ingenuity."--Jay Strafford, "Richmond Times-Dispatch" "McDermid knows crime, but more importantly, she knows the dark side of men and women and the havoc they can wreak on each other's lives. . . . "The Vanishing Point" is a stand-alone and does it ever. . . . [The] opening is shocking, edge-of-your-seat unnerving and violent on different levels. The reader is immediately drawn in by Harker's overwhelming panic and fear. It's taut, smart, vivid writing."--Victoria Brownworth, "Lambda Literary" "Her 26th novel opens with a nerve-shredding set piece that will send a chill down many a parent's spine. . . . . McDermid vividly conveys the rising terror and panic of the situation. . . . . McDermid keeps tension high with red herrings and plot twists. The sheer brio of her writing produces that increasingly rare thing, a genuine page-turner that doesn't insult its readers' intelligence."--Shirley Whiteside, "The Independent on Sunday" (UK) Praise for "The Retribution" "It's no big deal for an author to return to a beloved sleuth--but a beloved serial killer? . . . Hill and Jordan are two very bright detectives, but you still want to toss them under the bus when Jacko, who is every bit as charming as he thinks he is, flashes his come-hither smile."--Marilyn Stasio, "The New York Times Book Review" "Everyone else's serial killers seem pale imitations. . . . Val McDermid . . . has the ruthless psychological scalpel that forms part of the equipment of all good novelists, whatever their genre. And, fortunately for us, she knows just how to use it."--"The Guardian" "Gripping and well-written."--"The Philadelphia Inquirer"
