"When Detective Carol Jordan and psychologist Tony Hill captured serial killer Jacko Vance, they thought they were through with him. That story was recounted in Val McDermid's novel WIRE IN THE BLOOD. But seven years later, Vance escapes the British jail where he was serving a life sentence. He's anxious to get back to his bloody hobby of murdering girls, but first there's a little matter of revenge. In THE RETRIBUTION, the hunters become the hunted as Vance tracks down the people who captured him. Narrator Gerard Doyle's delightful British accent goes from barely noticeable to backwoods thick as he interprets the speech of characters from all over Great Britain. M.S.
