Don’t miss the electrifying new Karen Pirie thriller - STILL LIFE is out now

‘The queen of crime is still at the top of her game’

‘No one can tell a story like she can’ Daily Express

‘One of today’s most accomplished crime writers’ Literary Review

‘We are all creatures of habit. Even murderers …’

When human remains are discovered in the grounds of an old convent, it quickly becomes clear that someone has been using the site as their personal burial ground. But with the convent abandoned long ago and the remains dating back many years, could this be the work of more than one obsessive killer?

It’s an investigation that throws up more questions as the evidence mounts, and after their last case ended catastrophically, Tony Hill and Carol Jordan can only watch from afar. As they deal with the consequences of previous actions, someone with a terrifying routine is biding their time - and both Tony and Carol find themselves closer to the edge than they have ever been before …

Electrifying and filled with masterful suspense, this is the most eagerly anticipated thriller yet from number one bestseller and queen of crime Val McDermid.
