Summary

A twisted killer targeting psychologists has left a grisly trail across Europe. Dr Tony Hill, expert at mapping the minds of murderers, is reluctant to get involved. But then the next victim is much closer to home.... Meanwhile his former partner, DCI Carol Jordan, is working undercover in Berlin on a dangerous operation to trap a millionaire trafficker. When the game turns nasty, Tony is the only person she can call on for help.

what on earth

so disappointed, I love Val McDermid books normally and normally can't wait to finish and then regret when I have as they are so good. what on earth happen here? this has taken me over a month to conclude and now I have I'm glad. it wandered all over the place, couldn't work out if I was listening to a spy novel or a murder story and when it finish it seemed to whimper to a stop. will not listen to this one again.

Not the best

I'm really trying to get in to this series, indeed I really enjoyed the first two but I find this narrator very hard work. I don't think he suits the feel of the books at all and in this one, I even more so.
I also felt the story line was quite far fetched.
I actually couldn't finish it.
