Retribution by Val McDermid is the 7th book in her police procedural series that features DCI Carol Jordan and Criminal Profiler Tony Hill. In this outing they are up against an old nemesis, Jacko Vance, a serial killer that they put behind bars twelve years ago. Jacko has escaped from prison and is hell bent on revenge against those that he blames for his downfall, with Carol and Tony at the head of the list.

While Carol and her team are working on case of a killer who is murdering prostitutes, they are also having to watch their backs for Jacko not realizing how twisted his revenges are going to be. I always enjoy reading about this duo even though I find Carol a little too full on, but I found I had to overlook a number of implausible details in this one, beginning with Jacko’s escape. I also found it difficult to believe that Jacko would delay leaving the country in order to wreak his revenge.

I have been reading this series for years and will certainly be continuing on as the books are solid, well crafted police procedurals. Also as this book has brought about an enormous change in Tony and Carol’s relationship I need to read on to see what happens next. ( )

#7 in Hill/Jordan series and sequel to Hill/Jordan #2, "The Wire in the Blood" featuring Jacko Vance.
As usual, great read by Val McDermid. ( )

Retribution. Tony Hill/Carol Jordan Book 7. Val McDermid. 2011. Yet another series that I have not read in years. Hill is a psychologist, a criminal profiler who works for the police. For years he and Carol, a police inspector, have worked on grisly serial murders. They work well together and their history is hinted at but not explained in this title. Carol has left the police force and she and Tony are not on the same friendly terms they were in previous books in the series. However Carol is persuaded to return to work to head a super police group that will work on major crimes independent of local departments. Tony will work with her. They start looking into the mysterious suicides of two prominent women who have been hounded to death by vicious anonymous attackers on various social media outlets. Needless to say these are not suicides ( )

Police Profiler Tony Hill "helps" resistant police in search of escaped serial killer of young prostitutes; with unexpected outcome.
I like Tony Hill the UK TV Series character better than McDermid' characterization. ( )

McDermid keeps this series fresh (considering the number of sociopath serial killers Tony & Carol deal with) - this book brings back one of the worst of the lot.
If you've not read any of the series, it'll work alone, but I recommend starting with "The Mermaids Singing".
Or try some of the stand-alones like "The Vanishing Point". ( )

Nemesis is lame; but she is of colossal stature, like the gods, and sometimes, while her sword is not yet unsheathed, she stretches out her huge left arm and grasps her victim. The mighty hand is invisible, but the victim totters under the dire clutch.
