Review:

This sadistic, twisted yet intriguingly ingenious thriller garnered Val McDermid Britain's top crime-fiction award, the Gold Dagger, which only proves it's not as genteel a nation as we've been led to believe. The Mermaids Singing follows a killer who thrives on finding ever more inventive ways to seduce and torture sexually confused young men and records their death struggles digitally to market them as interactive home movies.

From the Publisher:

'Compelling and shocking' Minette Walters

'Manchester's answer to Thomas Harris' - Lucretia Stewart, Guardian

'A superb psychological thriller' - Cosmopolitan

'Truely, horribly good' - Mail on Sunday
