Praise for Insidious Intent

"Here McDermid is at her finest . . . Insidious Intent is a bold gamble that has the potential to shake long-cherished characters from their emotional complacency and advance the series into uncharted territory."--Los Angeles Times

"One of crime fiction's most eminent writers returns with another intricately plotted thriller."-- Entertainment Weekly "Best New Books"

"A highlight of novels written by Val McDermid is the tight control she maintains over her complex plots that are enhanced by believable and complicated characters . . . McDermid brings something special to the table as she shows in her latest novel . . . The intense plot moves briskly. McDermid keeps each twist believable . . . The author's expert exploration of the human experience has never been better."--Washington Post

"The 424 pages just flew by to a very shocking conclusion . . . You mustn't skip this one. When you read it, you'll understand."--Deadly Pleasures

"McDermid puts both her characters and the reader through the emotional wringer with Insidious Intent . . . It's both a terrific individual read and a culmination of ongoing character arcs throughout the books. McDermid is a maestro still at the top of her game, and adroitly balances shock and inevitability as events for beloved characters take a dark turn."--Mystery Scene

"The narcissistic, controlled killer is engaging quarry and McDermid's procedural details are as on point as ever . . . The final twist is both shocking and fitting, a must-read for series fans."--Booklist (starred review)

"DCI Carol Jordan is tested to the max by the Wedding Killer . . . McDermid . . . rais[es] the heat in agonizingly tiny increments, until she's ready for a finale guaranteed to leave you reeling."--Kirkus Reviews

"Thoroughly pleasing, engaging, indeed compelling, a very fine piece of craftsmanship."--Scotsman (UK)

"Val McDermid, known as the queen of psychological thrillers, surpasses herself here, delivering one of the most surprising twists you'll read this year. Outstanding."--Irish Independent (UK)
