Product Description

Susan Hill’s Chief Superintendent Simon Serrailler series has established itself as superior crime fare with a psychological edge. With six gripping thrillers set in the town of Lafferton already in print, Hill’s readers will welcome this installment in paperback.

Serrailler has just wrapped up a particularly exhausting and difficult case and is on sabbatical on a far-flung Scottish island when he is called back to Lafferton by the Chief Constable. Two local prostitutes have been found strangled. When the wife of the St. Michael’s Cathedral Dean and a respectable woman who is on her way to work go missing, the townspeople grow angry and afraid, and Serrailler realizes he is in the greatest danger of his life. In her most electrifying novel to date, Susan Hill has written a gripping and sharply observant story that shows the darker side of a quiet cathedral town.
