Meet Tony Hill's most twisted adversary - a killer with a shopping list of victims, driven by the most perverted of desires. The murder and mutilation of teenager Jennifer Maidment is horrific enough on its own. But it's not long before Tony realises it's just the start of a brutal and ruthless campaign that's targeting an apparently unconnected group of young people. Tony battles to find the answers that will give him personal and professional satisfaction in his most testing investigation yet.

"Everything a great detective novel should be: pacy, gripping, clever and stylish and, most of all, a fantastic read." (Sunday Express)

"As good and twisted as ever"
Tony and carol again manage to unravel the knot of a kill as well as there own lives will they ever be happy together or apart
"The most annoying narration I have heard"
I nearly returned this book because the narration was so incredibly plodding. Every word was picked out in a jarring staccato akin to a toddler learning to read. And the accents were even worse; never in my life have I heard such a bad Liverpudlian accent!!
Having said all of that, the only reason that I endured the narration was because the storyline showed promise. Having got to the end, I'm quite pleased that I did. I will listen to the next in the series as long as it has a different narrator...
"Gripping stuff ..."
I love all of this series, and Fever of the Bone is no exception ... it had me second guessing for a while, but a clever and satisfying ending.
Brilliant book. Thrilling, tense page turner which I listened to in almost one sitting. The mixture of storylines and personal back stories left me feeling more satisfied with this book than others in the Tony Hill/ Carol Jordan series. Saul Riechlin's narration is most definitely improving and I enjoyed his performance throughout. Can't wait for the next one.
"A little predictable but good overall"
I did get that annoying feeling I knew the answers quicker than the detective team on this one but overall a good, compelling story.
This book was a real struggle for me, and has well and truly put me off buying any more in the series. Tony has turned into a whinge-y sap, and Carol, a completely unlikeable drunk who hates Tony for reasons that make NO SENSE WHATSOEVER.
