About the Author

Val McDermid grew up in a Scottish mining community then read English at Oxford. She was a journalist for sixteen years, spending the last three as Northern Bureau Chief of a national Sunday tabloid. She is now a full-time writer and lives in South Manchester.


The two major plots of McDermid's mystery develop slowly but unerringly on parallel paths. Profiler Dr. Tony Hill tracks a serial killer whose own abuse ties back to the darkest pages of Germany's history. Meanwhile, British police detective Carol Jordan is undercover in Germany to try to entrap a major crime lord in a dangerously constructed operation. Gerard Doyle handles the suspenseful pacing quite well. Listeners should be forewarned that there is heavy violence and much that is disturbing in the descriptions of abuse and in many of the incidents depicted here. This is an engaging but difficult story. Highly recommended for adult audiences only.-Joyce Kessel, Villa Maria Coll., Buffalo, NY Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

'Val McDermid is one of the few crime authors who can be convincing when it comes to 'writing tough' yet retain a powerful emotional insight... McDermid is doing something quite extraordinary with the crime fiction suspense thriller' Scotland on Sunday

'This is a hugely ambitious novel, involving three police forces, of which the British seem to be the most Machiavellian' Express

Praise for Val McDermid:

'Val McDermid is a roaring Ferrari amid the crowded traffic on the crime-writing road' Independent

'McDermid has become our leading pathologist of everyday evil... The subtle orchestration of terror is masterful' Guardian
