THE CRUELLEST OF CRIMES
The Fife crime legend is back with more adventures for Tony Hill and Carol Jordan. Insidious Intent (published in December) will have pulses racing once again as the pair investigate new and old cases, which aren't as straightforward as they seem. Val McDermid also talks about Out of Bounds, her latest DCI Karen Pirie cold-case thriller and another page-turner, which explores the way families live with the impact of violent crime.
