Simon Serrailler has just wrapped up a difficult case for SIFT—Special Incident Flying Taskforce—and is on a sabbatical on a far-flung Scottish island when he is called back to Lafferton. Two local prostitutes have gone missing and are subsequently found strangled. By the time he gets back, another girl has disappeared. Is this a vendetta against prostitutes by someone with a warped mind? Or a series of killings by an angry punter? But then one of the Cathedral wives goes missing, followed by another young married woman. Serrailler follows lead after lead, all of which become dead ends. It is only through a piece of luck, a chance meeting, and a life put in grave danger that he finally gets a result.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Hill once again shines with a book that’s part taut suspense thriller, part classic British procedural, and part modern morality tale with an overlay that is at once heartwarming and terrible…This is a hugely satisfying, highly entertaining, masterfully written book in which Hill is once again at the top of her game.” Booklist (starred review)
“Steven Pacey offers a suburb reading of Susan Hill’s entertaining newest mystery…The action varies from calm conversation to heightened suspense, and Pacey’s fine-tuned reading increases the pleasures of both. His mastery of class and regional accents serves to deepen listeners’ understanding of the plot and issues. And his ability to voice believable men, women, boys, and girls is truly remarkable.” AudioFile
