"McDermid is as smooth a practitioner of crime fiction as anyone out there....She's the best we've got."
--New York Times Book Review

Scottish writer Val McDermid is one of the most respected authors at the scene of the crime, and Fever of the Bone offers a bravura display of her exceptional storytelling talents. Criminal profiler Tony Hill and his ally Detective Chief Inspector Carol Jordan are back in this terrifying psychological thriller, tracking down a brutal killer who's targeting a group of young people through a social networking site. A winner of the Gold Dagger Award, a Los Angeles Times Book Prize, and an Edgar(R) Award nominee--a New York Times Notable author whose writing Entertainment Weekly calls, "smooth, confident, deeply satisfying,"--Val McDermid is a crime fiction force of nature. And Fever of the Bone is among her best.

Back cover copy

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.
