The suspense and tension in "The Retribution" thus comes from the certainty that Vance is out there and at some point, in some unknown way, will come after Carol Jordan and Tony Hill. A second plot line concerns the multiple murders of prostitutes, probably at the hands of another serial killer. Jordan is asked to investigate, the last case her task force will handle before the team is broken up and scattered to different offices due to budget cuts.
It would be a shame to give away any of the twisting plot developments, but suffice it to say that the book was gripping, combining the suspense of both the search for Vance and the investigation of the serial killings.Read more ›
Then this one ... my word. Does McDermid want to show off how brutal her plots can be? It seems that she wants to kill characters for no reason whatsoever, not to mention having other characters experience unendurable pain. The character of Carol Jordan has lost all my sympathy. She's an alcoholic who refuses to admit she has a problem; she blames her closest friend for the fact that her life has fallen apart; she's a sad, soppy, mess. I can't find anything to relate to in this Carol. Tony is absolutely devoted to her still, which begs the question: Why? Why on earth would he want to have this horrible, toxic woman in his life?
As for the Jacko plot, I agree wholeheartedly with another reviewer who pointed out that he could not possibly have wreaked all that havoc. He would have had to enlist the help of a small army to get so much revenge in such a short time - and he didn't. One man could not have caused so much destruction, especially with the entire country on the lookout for him.
McDermid writes a nice lesbian relationship, but I think she's incapable of writing a heterosexual relationship that doesn't involve immense pain, game-playing, and enormous personal issues. She needs to either (to be crude) take a dump or get off the pot, as far as Tony and Carol are concerned. This "Tee-hee, I'm going to bring them together, then break them apart" approach is tiresome.
The TV series, with Robson Green bringing Tony Hill to vivid life, is fascinating, and written much better than the books. I've read fanfics that are written better. Ms. McDermid, please try thinking outside this narrow box you've created.
