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 much beloved series featuring
psychologist Tony Hill and former police detective Carol
Jordan. Splinter the Silence is an adrenaline-fuelled
rollercoaster guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your
seat: a masterful novel centered on the mysterious deaths of
several women who were the victims of vicious cyberbullying.
Is it violence if itâ€™s virtual? The outspoken women targeted
by the increasingly cruel internet trolls and bullies would
probably say so. For some of them, the torrents of bile and
vicious threats prove too much. They begin to silence
themselves in a series of high-profile suicides.
Or do they? Tony Hill isnâ€™t convinced. But heâ€™s the only
one. Former cop Carol Jordan is too busy messing up her life
to care. Until she gets an unexpected second chance. Now
itâ€™s game on, and the stakes have never been higher.
Unpredictable and unputdownable, Splinter the Silence is a
must-read that cements Val McDermidâ€™s place as one of the
best crime writers in the business.
