    Jacko Vance was first introduced in The Wire in the Blood, and quite a despicable human he is Twelve years he s been in prison thanks to Carol Jordan and Tony Hill Twelve years he s plotted and planned his revenge I believe his prison escape plan is highly implausible, but I gave Val McDermid the benefit of the doubt.With a new supervisor, Carol and her very successful team are being split up One last case comes in and they would like to go out with a bang This case i

    I was really disappointed with this book Definitely my least favorite McDermid novel and I ve read the entire Tony Hill Carol Jordan series and all of her standalone thrillers As another reviewer noted, it almost seems like she wrote this book merely to punish all the readers who had become invested in Tony and Carol s relationship, which had always had an air of uncertainty about it but which, by Fever of the Bone, felt like it was finally starting to move in a positive dir

    The Retribution by Val McDermid is the seventh in a series featuring detective Carol Jordan and profiler Tony Hill In the interest of full disclosure, I won this in a first reads GR giveaway However, my review reflects my experience of the book and is not I don t believe influenced by this in any way.I have not read the rest of the series which may in some ways be a disadvantage but which I found believe increased my reading pleasure I found the references to other stories and back

    The Retribution is another murder mystery that was free on the Nook recently It is very definitely not a cozy, however It s the most recent in a series of books starring police detective Carol Jordan and expert profiler Tony Hill in this book, a serial killer that Jordan and Hill put away years ago escapes prison and comes back to get his revenge.If you are a fan of the Jordan Hill series, then I would say you can t possibly miss this book a lot of important stuff happens, and I think if

    I m always keen to read McDermid s Tony and Carol in torment tales, and with the added hook of the reappearance of the dastardly Jacko Vance I was anticipating a good read However, like some of the previous reviewers I felt the story reached a point of twisted brilliance in Jacko s search for revenge but petered off from there with the ending feeling completely implausible and I mean implausible Val was probably thinking A ha, they ll never see that coming whilst rubbing her hands together i I m

    I discovered Val McDermid back in the early 1990s when the first of her Kate Branigan series, Dead Beat was published I ve been a fan of her work ever since and have always looked forward to reading her next book This is the seventh book in the Tony Hill Carol Jordan series, the first of which, The Mermaids Singing, was published in 1995 The fact that this is only the seventh book in the series demonstrates that McDermid doesn t churn them out, factory fashion In recent years she has inter I discovered

    I first discovered Val McDermid s Tony Hill Carol Jordan series about 7 or 8 years ago and I have been a dedicated fan ever since The Retribution is not only the latest in the series of seven books but it also reintroduces one of the serial killers from a much earlier book The Wire in the Blood the evil and twisted Jacko Vance To be honest, I could barely remember a thing about that book so it wouldn t make any difference to reading this book out of sequence if you haven t read McDermid s I first discovered V

    I am a huge fan of the Val McDermid, Tony Hill Carol Jordan books I could not wait for The Retribution, it seems so long since Fever of the Bone and was anxious to see what would happen when they moved to West Mercia, into Tony s new home he inherited from his father This relationship between Tony and Carol is 12 years in the making and I was delighted to see McDermid progress this aspect of the characters story, as it is central to the books I know this book was going to revisit Jacko Valanc I am a huge fan of the Val McD
