Val McDermid on BBC Breakfast

Val McDermid recently appeared on BBC Breakfast to talk about SPLINTER THE SILENCE, her latest novel. STS is the ninth novel to feature Tony Hill and Carol Jordan.

Is it violence if its virtual? The outspoken women targeted by the increasingly cruel internet trolls and bullies would probably say so. For some of them, the torrents of bile and vicious threats prove too much. They begin to silence themselves in a series of high-profile suicides.

Or do they? Tony Hill isnt convinced. But hes the only one. Former cop Carol Jordan is too busy messing up her life to care. Until she gets an unexpected second chance. Now its game on, and the stakes have never been higher.

Here is Val on BBC Breakfast:


SPLINTER THE SILENCE has recently be released in the U.K. and will land stateside in December.
