      Description: The residents of Bradfield are devastated when their star midfielder dies, the victim of a bizarre, seemingly motiveless murder.In a hospital, recovering from injuries, criminal profiler and psychologist Dr. Tony Hill struggles to make sense of the fragments of information he can gather in order to help his ally, Detective Chief Inspector Carol Jordan, bring a killer to justice. Then an explosion rips through a soccer stadium, leaving dozens dead and many more injured, and Jordan fi [...]

      I wasn't sure what to expect, given Val McDermid's comments re: the Tony/Carol relationship but when a novel opens with a madman with an axe, what's not to like? (But does Tony have to be in peril so early on? Does he have to be in peril at all? Hasn't he been in danger in all of the other novels as well?) And there's poisoning, and nefarious plotting, and a wicked mother. I'm really impressed with Ms. McDermid's ability to keep track of all these storylines.And the fangirl in me leapt with joy [...]

      I always love these books, I love the chemistry between Tony and Carol, was interesting to see another side of tony in this book though it all finished a bit to quickly and cleanly for me.

      After having an unpleasant experience of Val McDermid with that dreadful Lindsay Gordon story, it wa sa relief to get back to the fab Tony Hill. I liked the story, not the best one I've read, but the plot did keep me guessing as to what was really going on. And is it just me or wouldn't you like to give Carol Jordan a little slap every now and again for being just a teensy little bit too grumpy with old Tony? Lighten up girl x

      I really should read these in order, but as I'd seen the British series based on them, I didn't initially see the point. I really like the characters McDermid has created and the way the story begins with Carol and Tony working on separate cases only to have the streams cross and find themselves working together, as if the universe itself is bringing them together. This story sees Tony begin to work through a personal issue as Carol finds herself drawn to him, but confused as to why he pushes he [...]

      McDermid approaches the fifth novel in the Hill-Jordan series from a unique perspective, set up in such a way to keep the format fresh. Turning the novel into a series of chapters broken up by day, the story progresses in such a way that the reader is kept wanting a little more with each page-turn. A freak attack at Bradfield Moors leaves Dr. Hill incapacitated and a guest of a hospital room, with at least one unwanted guest and little ability to help Jordan and her team. When a footballer is ad [...]

      Beneath the Bleeding is a slightly weaker entry to the Tony Hill/Carol Jordan series.Having said that, though, there's no sign of weakening where McDermid's talent for managing a tight plotline is concerned. She's one of the best.But this novel is missing something that was prevelant in The Mermaids Singing and The Torment of Others. And that is the ever present intensity and suspense. You could put those two novels up against any horror novel and challenge it for chills.This novel does have a g [...]

      I love a book like this sometimes it sounds daft to say I like a book that doesn't have an intense climax but the wire in the blood books are so deliciously descriptive they're impossible to discuss. I love the psychology which Dr Tony Hill brings to the mix and the different messed up characters that make up the MIT team and they're individual stories that come together as a whole. It's also near on impossible to guess who the killer is or what their motive is for right up to the very end and b [...]

      I think this is my favorite Tony Hill book thus far. Not as twisted and graphic as some of them, but incredibly well written with excellent character development. I think this book also book gave the best insight as to the quirkiness of Tony Hill with the introduction of his mother.

    10. Ronja on said:

      I'm more or less listening to the rest of the series because there were only a couple of volumes missing in the middle. I'm not overly enthusiastic. There's a lot of crime literature out there that is a lot better. But as an audio book to listen to while doing something else it's fine.

    11. Lorraine on said:

      This is another exciting book in the Tony Hill and Carol Jordan series. This book finds Tony stuck in the hospital with a damaged knee after an ax attack by an inmate at the mental institution. Carol's team gets the job of finding out who murdered the soccer star by ricin poisoning. Tony hears the evidence from Carol and finds another poisoning victim. Carol goes another direction and doesn't want to hear Tony's ideas (big mistake) so he gets Paula to assist. Of course, his way is the right way. [...]

      DCI Carol Jordan and Dr. Tony Hill team up for a fifth time in author Val Mcdermid's, "Beneath The Bleeding". Jordan is running the Bradfield Police while Hill is working out of Bradfield Moor Secure Hospital. While at the hospital, one of the more dangerous patients, LLoyd Allen has managed to stop taking his medication for quite some time. On one night Allen picks up a fire axe and hurts orderly Jerry Golabeck, 24 very badly. In the ensuing madness Tony Hill wanders into Allen's path. Hill des [...]

      BENEATH THE BLEEDING is the fifth book in the Tony Hill / Carol Jordan series from Scottish writer Val McDermid. Which fans of this writer will already know. Fans will also know that anybody as daft as me, who would leave this book on the review pile for as long as I have, is really missing out on a very good thing.Now there are plenty of serial or multiple killer books floating around out there, and many readers are well over the whole idea, but you do have to give a moment's thought to revisin [...]

      Many cases going on at once in this fifth entry in the Detective Chief Inspector Carol Jordan/Dr. Tony Hill mysteries. I didn't care for it at all, but at least it introduced Tony's mother, Vanessa Hill, and it also revealed Tony had suffered an abusive childhood. I think finding out more about Tony's past makes the book worth reading, but for me, the various unrelated crimes were never engaging enough.Tony is a hero at the start this time. A mental patient at Bradford Moor Secure Hospital loses [...]

      I realize I'm a bit obsessed about these two and their compadres, just a bit. The writing is so good, the situations so unique and character development amazing. So, here I am again.Unfortunately, Tony tacked when he should have gibed and got in the way of a psychotic patient with an axe. Consequently, he's down, recovering but down nonetheless, for a while at any rate. The surprise arrival of his mother is guaranteed to assist Tony's recovery, not because of her gentle bedside manner, as a surv [...]

      This is the first of Val McDermid's books I've read, although I am aware of the characters through the Wire In The Blood TV series. So I sort of knew what I was getting - basically a drawn out crime thriller which will dumbfound detectives until right to the last when Robson Green will solve it in a stroke of brilliance.And so it proceeds. A famous footballer is murdered and later a terrorist bomb explodes at the club's stadium on match day. Psychologist Dr Tony Hill and DCI Carol Jordan are on [...]

    17. Eve Nolon on said:

      I have absolutely no idea how this book happened after THE TORMENT OF OTHERS. The reaching is comical. It's as if McDermid realized she might have to deviate from the formula after the character growth in the last story. I am still shaking my head in disbelief at the idiocy that was fucking everywhere. I mean, what?After four books wherein Tony's ridiculous theories are pretty much on the money, and both Carol and Tony benefiting from their successes, Carol turns on Tony because, well, I don't k [...]

      As I said in an another review, I think my taste for detective fiction is becoming jaded. I'm also experiencing this in TV fiction - Silent Witness is becoming very 'samey' and the issues about whether the police and CSOs do the detecting or whether the MEs do it is a major bone of contention for me. Still, enough post mortems for now, and back to the book at hand.McDermid is the Queen of UK crime fiction writers, and this is a good read. However, it's necessary for a reader to suspend disbelief [...]

      A star soccer player from the Bradfield team is murdered by ricin poisoning. Tony Hill is in the hospital recovering from a serieous leg wound received when he tried distracting a violent mental patient who was wielding an axe. Carol Jordan is investigating the poisoning and it soon becomes apparent that a serial killer is at large as more men fall victim to exotic poisons. Also, a bomb goes off at the local soccer stadium killing over 30 people and the case is quickly taken over by a British co [...]

      I was so excited to get my eyeballs on this book and I hate to say it but I was disappointed. Two competing mysteries seem to be taking place and I couldn't quite wrap my head around either one of them. The murderer(s) showed up very late in the book and barely even made the radar; the reasons for the murders felt weak and left a little too untested and unexplained. Add to that the poorly manufactured romantic tension between the lead detective and her friend, the forensic psychologist, and you [...]

    21. Jorge on said:

      Have read a few books by this author and have really enjoyed them .This one, though, has been quite disappointing. Long, boring and with a predictable ending. How come that Carol and his team didn´t realize that a poisoning murderer needs to get the poison from somewhere? That should have been the first line of investigation, and in fact it´s just the last 20 pages when they follow that trail. It seemed that the author wanted to end the book quickly and that was the easiest solution. Besides d [...]

      Ein solider Krimi, den man gut lessen kann. Allerdings frage ich mich, warum es nötig war, zwei parallele Fälle hineinzupacken. Ich dachte die ganze Zeit, die würden irgendwann zusammen laufen, aber nein - sie haben tatsächlich nichts miteinander zu tun.Und die Szenarien fand ich teilweise auch etwas weit hergeholt, allerdings nicht so weit, dass sie völlig unglaubwürdig wären. Aber es hat bei mir halt einen etwas merkwürdigen Nachgeschmack hinterlassen.

      I really enjoyed Beneath the Bleeding by Val McDermid. Contains quite a complex plot involving a madman run amok with an axe, several poisonings (some fatal), a bombing at a sports stadium with multiple fatalities, and a conniving, cold, & unfit mother . . . Looking forward to book #6 of the Tony Hill & Carol Jordan series!

    24. Hapzydeco on said:

      Good example of Val McDermid's early work. Using her great imagination, Val McDermid sets the table for her future dark, character-driven British crime fiction. As well as the romantic tension between cranky pants Carol Jordan and the cerebral Tony Hill. This novel is not as gruesome as some of Val McDermid's other books.

    25. Susan Armstrong on said:

      This was my least favourite McDermid mystery. One of the mysteries is implausible, the actions of the murderer were completely inconsistent with his character, and the other mystery lacked tension. The dynamic between Jordan and Hill - unchanging - was simply tedious. Maybe I've read too many of McDermid's now and we've reached the end of our love affair. I'll give her one more chance.

    26. Carol/Bonadie on said:

      Jordan and Hill collaborate on two cases; a poisoner and a bomber. This while Tony is stuck in hospital and an estranged family member shows up. The ins and outs of unexpected cases, and the twists in the lives of the detectives, make this an entertaining (if violent) series.
