9780007344758: The Torment of Others

The Number One bestselling crime series featuring Tony Hill, hero of TV's Wire in the Blood, written by the award-winning Val McDermid. This is a psychological thriller - and serial killer - that will keep you up at night. For some, there is nothing so sweet, so thrilling, as the torment of others ...A dead girl lies on a blood-soaked mattress, her limbs spread in a parody of ecstasy. The scene matches a series of murders which ended when irrefutable forensic evidence secured the conviction of one Derek Tyler. But Tyler's been locked up in a mental institution for two years, barely speaking a word - except to say that 'the Voice' told him to do it. Top criminal psychologist Dr Tony Hill is prepared to think the unthinkable - this is not a copycat murder but something much stranger. While DCI Carol Jordan and her team mount a desperate and dangerous undercover police operation to trap the murderer, Hill heads towards a terrifying face-off with one of the most perverse killers he has ever encountered...

From the Back Cover:

New York Times bestselling author Val McDermid resurrects two of her most compelling characters in her most chilling novel yet...
 
THE VOICE SEEPS LIKE BLOOD...
Two years ago, Derek Tyler confessed to a sickening quartet of murders. Now the convicted perpetrator remains locked away, as do the gruesome, inimitable details of his crimes, which is precisely why this can't possibly be happening all over again--but it is.
 
SOOTHING, CAJOLING, PRAISING, COMMANDING...
One by one, mutilated corpses are turning up, each marked by the unmistakable calling card of the same warped killer. Still shattered in the wake of her own unbearable trauma, Detective Chief Inspector Carol Jordan is called in to make sense of the implausible scenario, with criminal psychologist Tony Hill on hand to complicate matters at every turn.
 
AS IMPOSSIBLE TO SILENCE AS IT IS TO DEFY.
As a seasoned profiler, Tony is convinced that the new murders aren't the work of a copycat killer. Together, he and Carol prowl the mist-shrouded alleyways of tawdry Temple Fields, tracking a cunning serial killer who seems to be safely locked away yet somehow simultaneously on the loose, preparing to strike again...
 
"McDermid is unusual in her ability to keep the suspense high while constructing social mysteries that are far-ranging in their implications."
-- Publishers Weekly (starred review)
