"As a follow-up to McDermid's 1995 novel, THE MERMAIDS SINGING, ISIS AudioBooks has recorded the second suspenseful thriller featuring Dr. Tony Hill of the National Profiling Task Force. Under Hill's tutelage, Detective Shaz Bowman uncovers a serial killer in the most unsuspected of men, and when tragedy strikes, Hill battles his own demons to face the killer. Michael Tudor Barnes reads this grim serial-killer story with an eerie, acerbic tone. The English actor, best known in Britain for his role as Willy Roper in the BBC's EASTENDERS, delivers his reading with cold brilliance while lending the very human qualities that mark McDermid's writing.
