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-fueled roller coaster 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 cyber bullying. 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 un-put-down-able, Splinter the Silence is a must-read that cements Val McDermid place as one of the best crime writers in the business. Val McDermid is the best-selling author of twenty-nine previous novels, which have been translated into over forty languages. She lives in Scotland.

Professional reviews

"Gerard Doyle's performance of this mystery is so fine that listeners may have to remind themselves they're listening to a one-man show, not full-cast audio theater. His narration combined with such good writing makes this pure pleasure for the ears and mind. A rash of suicides is killing publicly assertive women--or are they being murdered? Ex-cop Carol Jordan is drafted to lead a new high-profile police unit. With the personal and professional assistance of psychologist Tony Hill, she takes on the suspicious deaths as a sort of a warm-up exercise for her team. Doyle's performance enhances McDermid's story and characters. G.S.D. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
