Product Description

We met the enigmatic and brooding Simon Serrailler first in The Various Haunts of Men and got to know him better in The Pure in Heart and The Risk of Darkness. The Vows of Silence, the fourth crime novel by Susan Hill featuring Chief Inspector Serrailler, is perhaps even more compulsive and convincing than its predecessors.

A gunman is terrorizing young women in the cathedral town of Laffterton. What—if anything—links the apparently random murders? Is the marks¬man with the rifle the same as the killer with the hand¬gun? With the complexity and character study that earned raves for The Pure in Heart and the relentless pacing and plot twists of The Various Haunts of Men, The Vows of Silence is truly the work of a writer at the top of her form.

Author Information
Susan Hill is also the author of the ghost stories The Woman in Black and The Man in the Picture, as well as three other mysteries starring Chief Inspector Simon Serrailler: The Various Haunts of Men, The Pure in Heart, and The Risk of Darkness. She lives in England, where she runs her own small publishing company, Long Barn Books.
