But there's no way Tyler could have killed the latest victim. He's been locked up in a mental institution since his trial, barely speaking a word. So is there a copycat?
All his years of experience tell top criminal psychologist Dr. Tony Hill that there isn't, but that would make the murders literally impossible. While Hill tries to crack Tyler, DCI Carol Jordan and her team must mount a desperate undercover operation to trap the murderer, a decision that will have terrible consequences.
As the tension mounts, a mixture of psychological insight and dogged detective work leads inexorably to a terrifying climax where Tony faces one of the most perverse killers he has ever encountered.

"One of McDermid's finest." (The Times [London])
I have enjoyed everything I have read or heard by this author for years. The readers are usually exceptionally clear even when speaking in UK regional dialects. The characters are enjoyable and well-defined, the storyline thrilling yet plausible. There is a degree of violence certainly, but it is not overly graphic. Any book suffers when abridged and this is no exceptionj. There were points in listening to this selection where I went back to listen again thinking I had missed something only to find it had likely been edited away...
I would NEVER have wasted a credit on this if I new it was an abridged edition (and not a well done one either). My error and it won't happen again.
I have been a fan of the "Wire In The Blood" TV series and was delighted that two of the original novels were in audio format. Fantastic plot and characters, I wish there were more.
