Number one best seller Val McDermid returns with her suspenseful new novel featuring two of the most iconic characters in crime fiction: Tony Hill and Carol Jordan.
In the north of England, single women are beginning to disappear from weddings. A pattern soon becomes clear: someone is luring the women away, only to leave the victims' bodies in their own burned-out cars in remote locations. Tony and Carol are called upon to investigate, but this may be the toughest case they've ever had to face. Meanwhile, Detective Sergeant Paula McIntyre and her partner, Elinor, must deal with a cruel cyber blackmailer targeting their teenage ward, Torin.
Impeccably plotted and intensely gripping, Insidious Intent reaffirms Val McDermid's place as Britain's best loved crime writer. This is the anticipated tenth instalment in the Tony Hill and Carol Jordan series.
