A shocking tale of psychopathic murder from Gold Dagger Award Winner Val McDermid. The bodies of four men have been discovered in the town of Bradfield. Enlisted to investigate is criminal psychologist Tony Hill. Even for a seasoned professional, the series of mutilation sex murders is unlike anything he's encountered before. But profiling the psychopath is not beyond him. Hill's own past has made him the perfect man to comprehend the killer's motives. It's also made him the perfect victim. A game has begun for the hunter and the hunted. But as Hill confronts his own hidden demons, he must also come face-to-face with an evil so profound he may not have the courage-or the power-to stop it.

Professional reviews

"Narrator Graham Roberts portrays the police investigators in McDermid's intense procedural, the first in the author's Dr. Tony Hill/Carol Jordan series. Roberts also dramatizes the novel's disturbing serial killer and his sexually motivated murders. While dealing with his own sexual problems, psychologist Tony Hill is called in by police to help profile and catch the murderer, who is operating within the gay community. Dr. Hill's burgeoning friendship with police investigator Carol Jordan is an oasis in the dark morass of the novel's graphic crimes. Graham Roberts makes an involving novel more so--if the listener has the constitution for the brutality that is frequently described. J.P.M. (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
