'A compulsively readable tale' Irish Times 'Another stellar read from McDermid, and further evidence that her "Queen of Crime" status will not be challenged' Scotsman 'Somebody has been here before us. And he's still here . . .' When a body is discovered in the remote depths of the Highlands, DCI Karen Pirie finds herself in the right place at the right time. Unearthed with someone's long-buried inheritance, the victim seems to belong to the distant past - until new evidence suggests otherwise, and Karen is called in to unravel a case where nothing is as it seems. It's not long before an overheard conversation draws Karen into the heart of a different case, however - a shocking crime she thought she'd already prevented. As she inches closer to the twisted truths at the centre of these murders, it becomes clear that she's dealing with a version of justice terrifyingly different to her own . . . Number one bestseller and queen of crime Val McDermid returns with her most breathtakingly atmospheric and exhilarating novel yet ___________________ Don't miss the electrifying new Tony Hill & Carol Jordan thriller - HOW THE DEAD SPEAK is out 22nd August and available to pre-order now ___________________ Praise for Queen of Crime Val McDermid: 'It grabs the reader by the throat and never lets go' Daily Mail 'As good a psychological thriller as it is possible to get' Sunday Express 'One of today's most accomplished crime writers' Literary Review 'McDermid remains unrivalled' Observer 'The queen of crime is still at the top of her game' Independent

Her trademark combination of macabre suspense and a light touch keep you reading gratefully * Sunday Express * McDermid's deceptively languid style, sly black humour and metronomic sense of pacing delivers a compulsively readable tale * Irish Times * The masterly handling of the pace and plot, blended with brilliant characterisation, show why best-selling writer Val McDermid retains her title of new Queen of Crime * People * Another stellar read from McDermid, and further evidence that her "Queen of Crime" status will not be challenged * Scotsman * There is nothing more gratifying than watching a master craftswoman at work, and she is on fine form here * Observer *
