About The Torment of Others:

Dr. Tony Hill and Detective Chief Inspector Carol Jordan return in the award-winning series that is the basis for the ITV television show Wire in the Blood.

In a small grim room, the body of a woman is discovered, panic and pain etched in her face. The scene matches in every detail a series of murders two years ago-murders that ended when irrefutable forensic evidence secured the conviction of a deeply disturbed young man named Derek Tyler.

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.

In The Torment of Others, Val McDermid keeps the tension mounting, as 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.

,

In this pulse-racing thriller, Dr. Tony Hill and Detective Chief Inspector Carol Jordan team up to solve the grotesque murder of a prostitute.

“Those who thought McDermid had exceeded herself with the brilliant and provocative The Distant Echo are going to be stunned by its sequel…. This is one series where you wait eagerly for the next installment.” —Globe and Mail

“One of McDermid’s finest.” —The Times (London)

“It is hard to know what to praise first here: the impeccable plotting or the sharp social relevance of the narrative (a McDermid specialty). Most of all, though, it’s the relationship between her two central characters that makes The Torment of Others work so well.” —Daily Express

“McDermid is unusual in her ability to keep the suspense high while constructing social mysteries that are far-ranging in their implications…McDermid brings to her mysteries an unusual capacity for compassion, both for victims and for the detectives whose lives are shattered tracking down the killers.” —Booklist, starred review

“Beautifully constructed, impeccably written…This fresh, imaginative psychological thriller should help win the author many new fans in the U.S.” —Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
