The Mermaids Singing Summary

The Mermaids Singing (Tony Hill and Carol Jordan, Book 1) by Val McDermid

In the northern town of Bradfield four men have been found mutilated and tortured. Fear grips the city; not man feels safe. Clinical psychologist Tony HIll is brought in to profile the killer. A man with more than enought sexual problems of his own, Tony himself becomes the unsuspecting target in a battle of wits and wills where he has to use every ounce of his professional skill and personal nerve to survive.
Winner of the CWA's Gold Dagger Award for Best Crime Novel of the Year, The Mermaids Singing is a truly shocking psychological thriller and a startling departure from Val McDermid's Kate Branigan novels.

At Ottakars's, we believe Val McDermid is one of the best British crime writers at work today. Most writers are content to succeed in one style of crime fiction; Val McDermid has written novels in different styles and excels in all of them. From tense and disturbing to witty and fast-paced, her novels are all skilfully plotted and compelling.

We are confident that you will enjoy her books as much as we do and are offering this exclusive Ottakar's edition for only 99p* as an introduction. Luckliy, if you like this one, there are plenty more to read.

Val McDermid's new novel A Place of Execution is published in paperback on the 4th April and will be available at all Ottakar's branches at the special price of GBP4.99* (GBP2.00 off rrp). Her new hardback, Killing the Shadows, is published in June.

*Price applies for a limited period only and is subject to availability.

`Gripping, intelligent stuff'
The Times

`Val McDermid is one of the most versatile of today's crime writers. Read any of her superb books and you will be coming back for more'
June Davies, Ottakar's Staines
