Product Description

Susan Hill—the Man Booker Prize nominee whose ghost story The Woman in Black is now a major film starring Daniel Radcliffe—has written her most captivating work in The Betrayal of Trust. The English town of Lafferton is ravaged by flash floods. A shallow grave is exposed; the remains of missing teenager Harriet Lowther have been uncovered. Harriet was the daughter of a prominent local businessman, and her death twenty years before had led to her mother’s suicide.

Cold cases are always tough, and in this mystery in the enduringly popular series, Chief Superintendent Simon Serrailler must confront his most grisly, dangerous, and complex case yet. Susan Hill’s understanding of the human heart, her brilliance when evoking characters, and her tremendous powers of storytelling come into full force in The Betrayal of Trust.

Praise for The Betrayal of Trust:

"Beautifully written… Hill is giving us a timeless panorama of life and death in an English town, one in which a murder investigation is only one drama among many." —Patrick Anderson, The Washington Post

"Hill, an award-winning novelist, shows just how good crime writing can be in this sixth installment of her series featuring Chief Superintendent Simon Serrailler." —Parade

"Not all great novelists can write crime fiction, but when one like Susan Hill does it, the result is stunning.” —Ruth Rendell

Susan Hill is the author of the famous ghost story The Woman in Black, now a major film starring Daniel Radcliffe, as well as seven acclaimed mysteries starring Simon Serrailler. She lives in England, where she runs her own small publishing company, Long Barn Books.
