What to expect

The third book in the Karen Pirie series, from No. 1 bestselling author Val McDermid.

When a skeleton is discovered hidden at the top of a crumbling, gothic building in Edinburgh, Detective Chief Inspector Karen Pirie is faced with the unenviable task of identifying the bones. As Karen’s investigation gathers momentum, she is drawn deeper into a dark world of intrigue and betrayal.

Meanwhile, someone is taking the law into their own hands in the name of justice and revenge — but when present resentment collides with secrets of the past, the truth is more shocking than anyone could have imagined . . .

From number one bestseller, Val McDermid comes an atmospheric, spine-chilling tour de force — her richest and most accomplished psychological thriller to date.

“The real mistress of psychological gripping thrillers. No one can tell or plot a story like she can.” DAILY EXPRESS
