Product Description


?When serial crime fiction is done well, readers can drop into any installment and within a few chapters, understand nearly everything about the primary characters and their relationship with one another. And so it is with Val McDermid's Tony Hill/Carol Jordan series, of which Fever of the Bone is the sixth book.? - Canadian Press ()

From the Back Cover

He is psychologist and criminal profiler Dr. Tony Hill’s worst nightmare—a killer driven by the most perverted hungers and unmoved by youth and innocence, a killer with a long shopping list of victims who leaves no trail. The murder-mutilation of teenager Jennifer Maidment is horrific enough on its own, but Hill quickly realizes that it’s just the beginning of a chilling campaign targeting an apparently unconnected group of young people—victims that the monster has been grooming through a social networking site.

It is a case that is reawakening ghosts of Tony Hill’s past. And the longer it takes to uncover a motive and a maniac, the more innocent youth will die.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Gail Cooke TOP 50 REVIEWER on Sept. 26 2010
'It all comes down to blood in the end. Some wrongs you can get past....But certain kinds of betrayal need to be answered. And sometimes only blood will do.'

Those are just a few of the chilling words we read in Val McDermid's introduction to what this reader considers to be her best work to date. With FEVER OF THE BONE, the sixth Tony Hill novel, we meet a new chief constable, James Blake, who is evidently little impressed with Hill's contributions. Of course, this leaves Carol Jordan right in the middle.

However, the middle might be the safest place to be as Carol and Tony are faced with their most demonic adversary yet. The first victim is young Jennifer Maidmont, so viciously attacked that her body was described as 'sexually obliterated.' There was no reason in the world for this vile act. Jennifer was a well cared for girl, pretty, sensible.

Only later is it found that the killer is apparently choosing his victims at random after befriending them on the latest and most popular social networking site for teens. Not satisfied with one victim the psychopath continues his sick spree of murder and mutilation.

Leave it to McDermid to carefully weave events together until a pattern emerges ' compelling reading! There is, of course, as before the emotional relationship between Carol and tony to further hold readers spellbound.

Val McDermid is a seasoned award winning author at the top of her game. Enjoy as she leaves us waiting for the seventh in this estimable series.

By Ted Feit TOP 1000 REVIEWER on Dec 13 2009
Format: Hardcover
Val McDermid's latest Carol Jordan/Tony Hill novel more than lives up to the expectations raised by the previous books in the series. DCI Carol Jordan now heads up her own elite Major Incident Team, handling current as well as cold cases, but the status quo is threatened by the new chief constable, as is the team's consulting arrangement with Dr. Tony Hill, clinical psychologist and criminal profiler extraordinaire. The tale covers a series of horrendous murder/mutilations of young, seemingly unconnected victims, and an old case into which new life [so to speak] has been infused. Newly available lines of investigation, of course, in both forensics and information technology, play a large role. In the current case, not the least of the questions is, what possible motivation could there be in the killing and mutilation of 14-year-olds?

There are few straight lines in the narrative, with scenes alternating from one aspect of the story line to another, but somehow that works to only increase the suspense quotient. The portraits of Carol's team members are well-drawn, with each having a distinct personality and set of talents. I found it fascinating to get inside the head of Tony Hill, a man who is troubled by his own psyche, but whose expertise lies in his ability to get inside of the head of the person whose identity he is hunting. The intimate [albeit chaste] relationship of Jordan and Hill is, as always, a thing of beauty and wholly satisfying to the reader [if not always to the participants]. The novel is tightly plotted, the writing containing some small gems, e.g., "offer[ing] up information . . .

I have read all the Tony Hill and Carol Jordan books at least twice. I enjoy them the second and third reading as much as the first.
