Review by Maxim Jakubowski

"A rare but welcome appearance of a contemporary Flemish mystery novel in translation (a sterling job by Laura Watkinson) again ably demonstrates that crime has no frontiers and neither do sleuths. (...) The scene is set for a race in overdrive that takes the conflicted characters through the Paris catacombs, Germany, the forests of rural Poland and Tuscany without ever faltering and becomes a compelling psychological page-turner and action-full yarn of great efficiency. More Vandermeeren, please." Maxim Jakubowski, Chair of the Crime Writers' Association (CWA)

Chosen by reviewers

"Our reviewers choose the best books to fill your family’s stockings: THE SCORPION’S HEAD A contract killer with a conscience, a distraught mother suspected of trying to harm her son and a delicious Bond-style mastermind called Dolores Bartosz are the key characters in this dark, twisty tale.

Exactly who is guilty of what isn’t clear until the very last page. It’s written by a psychologist who is also a truly gifted storyteller. Worth reading for the character of Dolores alone. " Daily Mail

Review Financial Times

Great review in the Financial Times "Crime writer Hilde Vandermeeren weaves a smart tale, switching between Gaelle, who wakes up in a psychiatric hospital in Berlin, and Michael, a hitman working for the sinister Scorpio organisation who was supposed to murder her. Even assassins sometimes have a heart, but that flash of conscience can exact a high cost, as Michael soon learns."
