Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Good Read Other reviewers gave it 5 leaves--to me that's for perfection and I don't think this book is perfect but it is a good read. It's my first, but not last Tony Hill book--I enjoyed the view from the profiler's position. The book captured my interest from page 1 and never let it go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OOOOOHHH! This was good! Now I have to see the TV series somehow. I highly recommend this to anyone who likes the gritty murder mystery! Excellent. For those of you who also like Ian Rankin - add this excellent Scottish author to your "stable" - it is really worth reading.
