The Mermaids Singing Summary

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

Gold Dagger Award winning psychological exploration of the world of the serial killer, with a twist.

You always remember the first time. Isn't that what they say about sex? How much more true it is of murder...

Up till now, the only serial killers Tony Hill had encountered were safely behind bars. This one's different - this one's on the loose.

In the northern town of Bradfield four men have been found mutilated and tortured. Fear grips the city; no man feels safe. Clinical psychologist Tony Hill is brought in to profile the killer. A man with more than enough 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 nerve to survive.

The Mermaids Singing Reviews

"This reading, by Alan Cumming, lives up to the novel's reputation, by capturing in this taut, psychological thriller the smell and taste of fear - a thoroughly unpleasant experience - but one I would recommend to anyone who enjoys (if that is the right word) a thriller in the serial-killer, savage torture and sexual brutality mode... three hours listening to a good adaptation (which this is) is a lot quicker than reading the book, and probably a good deal more thrilling."
Crime Time January 1997
