<div><p class="description">Internationally best-selling crime writer Val McDermid is one of the most dependable professionals in the mystery and thriller business, whose acutely suspenseful, seamlessly plotted novels have riveted millions of readers worldwide. In her latest, "The Skeleton Road," she delivers a gripping standalone novel about a cold case that links back to the Balkan Wars of the 1990s. <p class="description">In the center of historic Edinburgh, builders are preparing to convert a disused Victorian Gothic building into luxury flats. They are understandably surprised to find skeletal remains hidden in a high pinnacle that hasn't been touched by maintenance for years. <p class="description">But who do the bones belong to, and how did they get there? Could the eccentric British pastime of free climbing the outside of buildings play a role? <p class="description">Enter cold case detective Karen Pirie, who gets to work trying to establish the corpse's identity. And when it turns out the bones may be from as far away as former Yugoslavia, Karen will need to dig deeper than she ever imagined into the tragic history of the Balkans: to war crimes and their consequences, and ultimately to the notion of what justice is and who serves it. <p class="description">"The Skeleton Road" is an edge-of-your-seat, unforgettable read from one of our finest crime writers.<p class="description"><i>"Val McDermid . . . has the ruthless psychological scalpel that forms part of the equipment of all good novelists, whatever their genre. And, fortunately for us, she knows just how to use it."--</i>The Guardian (UK) on "The Retribution"
