Jacko Vance, the serial-killer, the murderer of teenage girls has escaped from Prison. He is all out for revenge from all those who had put him behind the bars- for the lost time. Dr. Tony Hill, the psychological profiler, Carol Jardon, MTI team's boss and all others responsible for his loss of freedom are on his list. How is he going to take his revenge? Who is he going to kill first? How will retribution be met? The hunters have become hunted here.
The MTI team is also on look out for a serial killer who is killing sex workers. Every time a new method and a different kind of victim.
Will Jordan, Hill and their team stop the serial killer? Will Hill deliver? What will Vance do next? Who is he going to attack and how? Will Hill predict Vance's move? Will Jordan and Hill make any progress in their complex relationship?
I couldn't guess Vance move. A gripping page turner. I love it. I have read most of McDermid's books and love them, especially those featuring Tony Hill and Carol Jordan. This is McDermid's 25th book and 7th book featuring the duo.
I borrowed this book from my local library.
