Tuesday, January 29th, 6:00 – 8:30 p.m.
Read the novel, Wire in the Blood by Val McDermid and watch the ITV film adaptation starring Robson Green as the brilliant, passionate and eccentric, clinical psychologist and profiler Dr. Tony Hill. In season one, episode 2 Shadows Rising, Dr. Hill works alongside the ambition and driven Detective Inspector Carol Jordan (Hermione Norris of MI5 fame) to track a serial killer responsible for the murders of dozens of teenage girls. When two teenagers’ bodies are pulled from a Northumberland tarn, Dr Tony Hill immediately suspects a multiple killer. DI Carol Jordan is called to the home of popular chat show hosts Jack and Amanda Vance, who fear they are being stalked. As the dead girls are identified as suspected runaways, the attacks on the Vances escalate dramatically. Could the two investigations be connected?
Join us for a discussion McDermid' novel and the film adaptation.
