Description

Heavy rain falls on Lafferton, flooding the cathedral town and causing a landslip out on the moors. As the rain water slowly drains away, a shallow grave - and a skeleton - are revealed.

It doesn't take long to identify the remains as those of missing teenager, Harriet Lowther, who was last seen sixteen years ago. But a cold case isn't a priority for a police force already struggling with staff shortages and cuts: if Detective Inspector Simon Serrailler is to solve the case, he will have to do it alone.

Review quote

'Hugely enjoyable ... This is a satisfying crime story and a fearless examination of controversial issues surrounding terminal illness.' -- The Daily Mail 'The Betrayal of Trust isn't only a page-turner - though it certainly fulfils that expectation - it's also a thought-provoking novel about those who suffer and those who care for them.' -- The Guardian 'Hill can't write a bad sentence and her characters are all completely convincing - no more so than her long-serving detective Simon Serrailler.' -- Daily Mirror 'Her intellectual stance is engaging, her plot unpredictable and her detective a likeable presence.' -- Scotland on Sunday 'Far more than a whodunit ... written with a novelist's flair, in that the characters, however fleeting, are carefully drawn and believable.' -- Country Life
