Insidious Intent Reviews

[T]horoughly pleasing, engaging, indeed compelling, a very fine piece of craftsmanship. It will reward those who have followed the Jordan and Hill sequence, and send latecomers back to the earlier novels. * Scotsman *
Val McDermid, known as the queen of psychological thrillers, surpasses herself here, delivering one of the most surprising twists you'll read this year. Outstanding. * Irish Independent *
The tenth outing for the much-loved duo is a reliably engrossing thriller - and one that ends with a colossal reminder of just why McDermid has been the queen of crime for three decades. * Heat *
Elegantly plotted, it's pure class * Sunday Mirror *
Dark and expert crime writing . . . beautifully crafted * The Arts Desk *
McDermid ratchets up the tension . . . [her] most expressive and emotional novel to date, giving readers more than just a clever criminal to get their teeth into. * The National *
There aren't many to touch her for insight into the minds of hunter and hunted. -- Susan Hill
Here is another gripping crime novel by Val McDermid . . . an exciting book by one of today's most accomplished crime writers * Literary Review *
