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 series featuring psychologist Tony Hill and former police detective Carol Jordan. In Insidious Intent, Tony and Carol are on the hunt for a serial killer who victimizes women at weddings without a date-and forces the duo to confront their most haunting moral dilemma so far. In the north of England, single women are beginning to disappear from weddings. A pattern soon becomes clear: Someone is crashing the festivities and luring the women away-only to leave the victims' bodies in their own burned-out cars in remote locations. Tony and Carol are called upon to investigate-but this may be the toughest case they've ever had to face. Meanwhile, Detective Sergeant Paula McIntyre and her partner Elinor must deal with a cruel cyber-blackmailer targeting their teenage ward, Torin. Impeccably plotted and intensely gripping, Insidious Intent reaffirms Val McDermid's place as Britain's reigning Queen of Crime.

    A solid thriller from a much-loved author. A sub-plot involving sexting seemed tacked on and the life-or-death stakes of the main storyline seemed a bit underdeveloped. Ending a thrill. The reader wasn't right for this, though. His plummy and measured diction didn't let the action take off - this story needed to be breathlessly told - and wasn't.
