From the Back Cover:

Extraordinary Acclaim for Val McDermid:

"Cunningly plotted... McDermid administers the venom drop by drop... Individually the characters are sensitively drawn. Collectively, they present the inscrutable face of closed-off communities so terrified of change they would kill for peace."
-The New York Times Book Review on The Distant Echo

"If you still haven't absorbed the fact that Val McDermid is writing at the top of anyone's game, here's another chance to join the celebration. Her clean, crisp writing, especially about crime science, might just remind you of the early books of P.D. James."
-Chicago Tribune

"Ambitious... bone-chilling... McDermid has always been attuned to the ways in which the mystery novel can function as a work of social criticism."
-The Washington Post

A dead girl lies on a blood-soaked mattress, her limbs spread in a parody of ecstasy. The scene matches a series of murders which ended when irrefutable forensic evidence secured the conviction of one Derek Tyler. But Tyler s been locked up in a mental institution for two years, barely speaking a word - except to say that the Voice told him to do it.

While DCI Carol Jordan and her team mount a desperate and dangerous undercover police operation to trap the murderer, Hill heads towards a terrifying face-off with one of the most perverse killers he has ever encountered.
