Publisher's Summary

Is it violence if it's virtual? The outspoken women targeted by the increasingly cruel Internet trolls and bullies would probably say so. For some of them, the torrents of bile and vicious threats prove too much. They begin to silence themselves in a series of high-profile suicides. Or do they? Tony Hill isn't convinced. But he's the only one.
Former cop Carol Jordan is too busy messing up her life to care. Until she gets an unexpected second chance. Now it's game on, and the stakes have never been higher. Unpredictable and un-pause-able, Splinter the Silence is a must-listen that cements Val McDermid's place as one of the best crime writers in the business.

Vintage Tony Hill Novel!

This book gripped me from the first sentence and didn't let go until the very very end! This is classic Tony Hill/Carol Jordan, not to mention Val McDermid, the genius behind this series. I have felt that the last two Tony Hill books were kind of tired, and left me underwhelmed. But McDermid has put Humpty back together again and the results are sublime!

Carol is facing an enormous personal crisis, Tony is the only one who can help, Stacy finally has what she wants and has to face the reality of that, and Paula's character continues to develop as she becomes even more integrated into the personal and professional lives of these characters. All the while, we have a dastardly criminal who seems to be a ghost stirring up mayhem for the team to wrestle with. All the bells and whistles are here, Tony and Carole leading their crew, driving them to solve this, and to solve it yesterday.

It's been a long LONG time since I've read a book like this in one sitting, but McDermid is such a gifted writer, these characters are so dimensional and authentic, and the story is so tightly woven I just could not stop listening. If you've been waiting for Tony to get his groove back...wait no longer. He's back with bells on!

Worthy of reading again in future

Great characterization of two heroes riddled with faults, both emotionally injured and broken. They come together again to heal each other and reform their fractured team of highly effective misfits.
What starts out as a team building exercise, investigating a strange suicide after cyber bullying; soon becomes a puzzling series of incidents. Each similar to the death of a poet, who is now praised as a feminist. What is the message...
