McDermid is at the top of her form in this sizzling story. . . . You will not put this one down until the final sentence.”Margaret Cannon, The Globe and Mail
Hill and Jordan dominate as brilliantly as ever.”The Times (Saturday Review) (UK)
Val McDermid’s Tony Hill and Carol Jordan novels are thrillers at their bestunbearably suspenseful, psychologically complex, expertly plotted and impossible to predictand they have riveted millions worldwide. As Cross and Burn opens, Tony and Carol are facing the biggest challenge of their professional lives: how to live without each other. No one has seen Carol in three months, and without her, the police brass no longer want Tony’s services. Even more damaging is the fact that they both hold Tony responsible for the bloody havoc their last case wreaked on Carol’s life and family, and Carol has sworn she’ll never speak to Tony again. But just because Tony and Carol’s relationship is finished doesn’t mean the killing is. A body has been discovered in an abandoned flat inhabited by squatters. As connections to other missing or dead women emerge, a horrifying pattern becomes clear: someone is killing women, all of whom bear a striking resemblance to Carol Jordan. And when the evidence begins to point in a disturbing and unexpected direction, thinking the unthinkable seems the only possible answer.
Pure reading joy! Welcome back, queen of crime Val McDermid.”The Florida Times-Union
