But here instead of bridges yet crossed and yet burned at the end of The Retribution, we will see others re-built instead.

He cannot believe that his mother has left him alone for the night, 14-year old as he is. And Paula takes his claim very seriously. Because someone is brutally killing women. Women who who bear a striking resemblance to former DCI Carol Jordan - but is this the right way around?
Or is Carol Jordan simply fitting into the scheme of the abducter and later on also killer of a certain type of woman he wants to punish? Punish for what? For being a bad wife? He certainly is looking for a GOOD wife...

And in her aberrant and blind ambition she takes out the most unexpected person as her designed culprit...
This is really a step in the right direction Val McDermid has taken here.
After the "Retribution" case there really remained only a few feeble "bridges" to start with a new relationship between Carol Jordan and Tony Hill.
But the skilled authoress took her chances and ...

But the thrilling story will keep You bound until the end.
Now I am awaiting the next book of this series, while I am biting my nails!
