Additional Information

“Smooth. Confident. Deeply satisfying. What else can you say about McDermid’s writing? . . . The Jordan-Hill relationship remains the star of the show . . . It’s a match made in heaven amid hell on earth.”—Entertainment Weekly (editor’s choice) on The Torment of Others

Widely recognized as one of our finest crime writers, with numerous accolades and legions of devoted readers worldwide, internationally bestselling author Val McDermid is back with the latest installment in her much beloved series featuring psychologist Tony Hill and former police detective Carol Jordan. Splinter the Silence is an adrenaline-fuelled rollercoaster guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat: a masterful novel centered on the mysterious deaths of several women who were the victims of vicious cyberbullying.

Is it violence if it’s virtual? The outspoken women targeted by the increasingly cruel internet trolls and bullies would probably say so. For some of them, the torrents of bile and vicious threats prove too much. They begin to silence themselves in a series of high-profile suicides.

Or do they? Tony Hill isn’t convinced. But he’s the only one. Former cop Carol Jordan is too busy messing up her life to care. Until she gets an unexpected second chance. Now it’s game on, and the stakes have never been higher.

Unpredictable and unputdownable, Splinter the Silence is a must-read that cements Val McDermid’s place as one of the best crime writers in the business.

“Hill and Jordan dominate as brilliantly as ever.”— Times Saturday Review (UK) on Cross and Burn

I've read most of Val McDermid's books. This book seemed to delve into the Carol/Tony characters at length. Usually there is a balance between antagonist and protagonist while being able to get into the mind of the villain. This book might appeal to those who long for more development between Carol/Tony. I found the last quarter of the book pertaining to the culprit and crime, wrapped up too quickly. So, if you've read Val's other books for the psychological twists, turns and wrong-ways, this book hasn't done what her other works have. On the other hand, is you have read Val's other are rewarded with fantastic play between our heroes finally growing closer.
Val McDermid’s Carol Jordan/Tony Hill series takes a new turn in “Splinter the Silence.” Jordan, a former detective chief inspector with the Bradfield Metropolitan Police, has to face facts—she has an addiction that must be dealt with before it is too late. Carol’s friend, clinical psychologist and profiler Tony Hill, has borne the brunt of Carol’s aggressiveness and mood-swings before, and he hesitates to interfere in her personal life now. Nevertheless, Hill decides to reach out to Carol at a time when she is in desperate need of sound advice and moral support.

McDermid reunites Jordan (who is appointed to lead an elite “flying squad” assigned to handle homicides and other major incidents across six forces) with DS Paula McIntyre, digital forensics expert Stacey Chen, and others whom Carol has handpicked for their skill, loyalty, diligence, and resourcefulness. Unfortunately, Jordan has made powerful enemies who are eager... Read more
