Product description

Simon Serrailler is on sabbatical on a Scottish island, recovering from an exhausting murder investigation, when he is urgently summoned back to Lafferton. Two local prostitutes have been found strangled. By the time Serrailer has reached the town, another girl has vanished. Is this a vendetta against prostitutes by someone with a warped mind? Or a series of killings by an angry punter? Then the wife of the new Dean at the Cathedral goes missing - has the killer widened their net or is there more than one murderer at large?

Review quote

"A crime tale with an emotional core" Herald "Nothing's quite as it seems, except Hill's brilliantly compelling prose" Daily Mirror "Susan Hill's Serrailler novels, with their persuasively-drawn copper and his equally well-rounded family, are real treats" -- Barry Forshaw Daily Express "Susan Hill is extremely rare if not unique in having achieved enormous literary success in two genres, that of so-called straight novels and crime fiction... Deeply engrossing and enjoyable" -- Antonia Fraser The Lady "There's something reassuringly Victorian about Hill's literary values" -- Jane Jakeman Independent

‘Susan Hill’s Serrailler novels, with their persuasively-drawn copper and his equally well-rounded family, are a real treat’ Daily Express Simon Serrailler is on sabbatical on a Scottish island, recovering from an exhausting murder investigation, when he is urgently summoned back to Lafferton. Two local prostitutes have been found strangled. By the time Serrailer has reached the town, another girl has vanished. Is this a vendetta against prostitutes by someone with a warped mind? Or a series of killings by an angry punter? Then the wife of the new Dean at the Cathedral goes missing – has the killer widened their net or is there more than one murderer at large? ‘A crime series that specialises in sidestepping conventions, always to exhilarating effect. These books success in harnessing all the genre’s addictive power while maintaining a complexity and fascination entirely their own’ Independent ‘Nothing’s quite as it seems, except Hill’s brilliantly compelling prose’ Daily Mirror
