There is one serial killer who has shaped and defined police profiler Tony Hill's life. One serial killer whose evil surpasses all others. One serial killer who has the power to chill him to the bone: Jacko Vance.

And now Jacko is back in Tony's life. Even more twisted and cunning than ever before, he is focused on wreaking revenge on Tony - and DCI Carol Jordan - for the years he has spent in prison.

Tony doesn't know when Jacko will strike, or where. All he knows is that Jacko will cause him to feel fear like he has never known before - and devastate his life in ways he cannot imagine...

The Retribution

Had it not been for the disappointing ending, I would have given this book 5 stars. The main plot was gripping, to the point where, at one stage, I was hesitant to turn the page for fear of who was next on Jacko Vance's list. The sub plot was a welcome distraction, and served only to further my admiration of Dr Hill's character. Carol Jordan was at her acidic best, and although the storyline did provide the opportunity to finally hear some touching comments from her team, the ending definitely did not justify the focus and inner-strength demonstrated by her character in previous novels. I understand this was a story of truly mixed emotions, but for the first time with any of her novels, this left me with the impression that Val McDermid couldn't quite find the right words to bring this story to a satisfying conclusion. I would highly recommend it though, as long as you've read Mermaid's Singing beforehand. You might like the end?

Horses for courses

Pacy and demanding to be finished BUT as a first time reader of this writer felt that I was forever being given a summary of the outcome of previous novels in the series. I wanted the story to be stand alone really without being treated as a joiner to a well established club of aficionados. Won't be returning to thus series but can see the attractions to folk without a literary family - as a profiler might conclude 😊🔫
