5.0 out of 5 stars A taut and gripping thriller, 20 Mar. 2010
This review is from: The Mermaids Singing (Tony Hill and Carol Jordan, Book 1) (Paperback)
Hi folks; I expect everybody here knows by now that Val McDermid won the Gold Dagger for best crime novel of the year. For all her fans out there I thought you'd also like to know her feet haven't touched ground since!
The Mermaids Singing is quite a departure from Val's Kate Brannigan books, marking a big step forward in writing style. This is a taut and gripping thriller that can easily take on the American 'hard-boiled' and come away dusting its hands. A serial killer with a liking for torture is tracked by a deeply damaged investigator, but this is no easy formula writing, the plot twists and turns like a labyrinth and makes it much too easy to fall into the trap of rashly presuming what and who culprit and victims might be. The suspense build up makes this book totally unputdownable, and I give a personal guarantee that after reading The Mermaids Singing, many heterosexual men will be very, very wary of opening their door to a stranger...... The lucky publishers are HarperCollins. Happy reading!
