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.

Val McDermid, one of the most reliable of British mystery novelists, is in good form with Splinter the Silence, the latest in the series featuring police investigator Carol Jordan and psychologist/profiler Tony Hill. These protagonists are one of the most interesting — if not always the most appealing — crime fighting duos in fiction. MdDermid’s only misstep is the ending. It relies too much on conventions of the genre, not to mention a hard to believe rescue, but by the time everything plays out, our enjoyment level remains high because she is one of the best at generating and maintaining a breakneck pace, even though, in Splinter the Silence, there are few real surprises along the way.

This time out, the bad guy seeks out high profile female victims of cyber bullying. These women are known for feminist sensibilities and are tough and capable, but not enough to remain unscathed. To Jordan and Hill, their apparent suicides don’t make much sense, but as the investigation deepens, so does their understanding of what is actually going on. Amid all of this, Carol Jordan is fighting an exceedingly tough patch with her escalating alcoholism, just as she rejoins the police force as the head of a new department with everything to lose. But her loyal friend Tony Hill is on hand to offer much needed support. Their relationship never disappoints. The best news for fans of this series is that Val McDermid has set up a perfect scenario for future installments.

This was a nice change of pace for the usually less optimistic policing duo, Carol and Tony. Even though things seem dire at first, the whole interrelationship atmo is positive and caring.
Carol has some soul searching to do, Tony surprises himself ( and us) and Stacy Chen finds out about humans and emotions.all of our usual players and even some of the less usual ones are set to the task by one of Tony’s gut feelings. Everyone is out to prove something this time and the answers won’t come easily.

Val Mcdermid is always determined to let her very humane characters grow and she has succeeded yet again in writing a well balanced’ logical, strategically and logically under built story. Though her usually gritty and dark wasn’t as present as it has been in the past’ I found this story enjoyable and well constructed. I love crime most when it’s believable.

Mcdermid has an amazing pace. She knows when and how to throw tidbits of information. She is very gifted in thinking patterns’ even though some of her characters are allowed out of the box. She’s never pushing conclusion or adding deus ex machina éléments. Everything has its own flow and fall into place at a logical point in the story. For me that’s the hardest part of good crime writing. Not rushing the information, knowing when an how to introduce it. I just hope everyone enjoyed it as much as I have.

I suppose to understand my title to this review you will just have to read this Tony Hill and Carol Jordan novel for your own excitement and satisfaction. MIT’s squad was totally destroyed after Jacko Vance . Now there is a new serial killer that Tony finds on his own because he is bored. This one is a misogynistic bullying cyber stalker who adds a literary flare to his patterns when making the women with causes outside of their familial responsibilities by referring to older rebellious women writers who committed suicide. The book of the author left at the seen is the only clue and it was not obvious to Tony for quite some time . This time Stacy does a great trip into cyberspace to really help solve this case too. I loved this quick read and I believe I felt this way mostly because of the building of the character relationships over the years in this series written by Val McDermid ! These are my most favorite of her creations and I know one day I may meet them because they seem so real . I do not know what will come next but I am ready !
