Written By: Val McDermid. Publisher: Brilliance Audio. Rich in atmosphere, Killing the Shadows uses the backdrops of city and country to create an air of threatening menace, culminating in a tense confrontation between hunter and hunted, a confrontation that can have only one outcome. The story itself was not one McDermid's best. I expect suspense fiction to include some far fetched twists but I felt like this one had too many so that when the killer was revealed it was a big eye-rolling moment instead of the climax of all the lead up.

A killer is on the loose, blurring the line between fact and fiction. He may have set the book in London, but it’s unmistakably Edinburgh that comes eerily off the page. Behind the soot-black facades of the Royal Mile lie the old tenements surrounding their barren courts. Back in the eighteenth century, these were the equivalent of today’s council-housing schemes overcrowded with the dispossessed of the city, home to drunks and laudanum addicts, haunts of the lowest whores and street urchins.

It’s hard to miss them. According to the guide book, Fernando and Isabella had them hung up there after the reconquest of Granada.

Killing the shadows, . Killing the Shadows, . It’s hard to miss them. They were used to shackle the Moors’ Christian prisoners. I must say, if that’s typical of Isabella’s idea of decor, I can’t wait to see the inside.

Vari Sylvester holds interest through a long and complicated plot, ending in a hair-raising rescue in remote Scotland. The killer's identity is revealed in eerie sections enhanced by the audio, but which shift the focus from surprise to suspense. The graphic violence and sexual content are somewhat blunted by Sylvester's clinical tone while the intermittent Rachmaninoff prelude seems an odd choice. c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine.

Val McDermid is a celebrated and best selling Scottish crime writer, best known for a series of suspense novels featuring her most famous creation The Wire in the Blood, which has been adapted for television under the name Wire in the Blood, and starred Robson Green. To the right listener, they tell us all about themselves: where they came from, how they lived, how they died – and who killed them.

A killer is on the loose, blurring the line between fact and fiction. His prey—the writers of crime novels who have turned psychological profilers into the heroes of the nineties. But this killer is like no other. His bloodlust shatters all the conventional wisdom surrounding the motives and mechanics of how serial killers operate. And for one woman, the desperate hunt to uncover his identity becomes a matter of life and death.

Professor Fiona Cameron is an academic psychologist who uses computer technology to help police forces track serial offenders. She used to help the Met, but vowed never to work for them again when they went against her advice and badly screwed up an investigation as a consequence. Still smarting from the experience, she's working a case in Toledo when her lover, thriller writer Kit Martin, tells her a fellow crime novelist has been murdered. It's not her case, but Fiona can't help taking an interest.

Which is just as well, because before too long the killer strikes again. And again. And Fiona is caught up in a race against time, not only to save a life, but to bring herself redemption, both personal and professional.

Rich in atmosphere, Killing the Shadows uses the backdrops of city and country to create an air of threatening menace, culminating in a tense confrontation between hunter and hunted, a confrontation that can have only one outcome.

Blackbeard
A serial killer is stalking and executing thriller writers in manners scripted in their novels.

Psychologist Fiona Campbell is drawn into the case when her lover Kit Martin is targeted as a potential victim.

Campbell is a psychologist who uses computer technology to help law enforcement in locating offenders through crime linkage and geographical profiling. She has sworn never to work again with the Metropolitan police after they ignored her advice and messed up an investigation. This has created a rift between her and longtime friend, Detective Superintendent Steve Preston. This breach increases with dramatic results when Preston fails to give adequate support to Fiona's fears.

The novel has a number of subplots which initially appear to be distractions. Yet nothing is ever quite as it seems in a McDermid thriller. She neatly ties everything together with compelling surprises and plot twists.

An enjoyable, if nail-biting, ride.

Intricate,fast paced,intelligent and with more twists than a mountain stream,this is a great bet for another Edgar nomination and a must read for all true fans of modern crime thrillers.
Vikus
This is as satisfying a modern mystery as I have read in years. The basic plot description reads as a serial killer of serial killer thriller writers. I will add to this that Ms. Mc Dermid gices us in 1 book: a) 3 seprarate serial killer investigation in varying degrees of detail and all interesting; b) several intelligent detectives, none of them Lestrade-ish or tokenish; c) interesting victims; d) a very charismatic heroine in all senses; e) red herrings in the classic tradition, as well as a surprising main villain. Just read this one; you will not be dissapointed.

I have always enjoyed V Mc Dermids writing and style,this book was very well written and exciting and I finished the book in 2 days.She manages to keep me turning the pages even though I should be sleeping or working.The manner in which she keeps several stories flowing alongside one another that you are able to follow the different stories without getting lost is really good!
Swordsong
Another incredible page turning thriller by a truly gifted author. The hardest thing about reading such a good book is coming to the end!
Trash Obsession
Val McDermid never lets a reader down. I read this after the latest Tony Hill instalment, not as riveting but still as tasty.
