The Torment of Others by Val McDermid – Book Review


Carol Jordan was broken physically and emotionally by her undercover investigation in Europe. However, her previous boss, who is struggling with a series of missing children, brings her in to head an elite team. Despite her condition, and with the support of Tony Hill, Jordan gives it a go. And when a couple of prostitutes are killed in a very gory manner – a manner extremely similar to that of a bloke who is currently locked up – Jordan is going to be pushed to the extreme.

I cannot stop reading this series. I really like McDermid’s style and as soon as I finished this one, I grabbed the next. The red herring in this one had my brain going one way and then the next, and trying to figure out how the various interactions actually all fit together. And it’s also violent and horrible. Love it.
