Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The fact that The Vows of Silence is light on what traditionally constitutes a mystery plot hardly registers. It’s the intelligence of this brooding series that rivets a reader’s attention.” Washington Post
“This top-notch, tautly plotted British mystery series just keeps getting better. Serrailler is a satisfyingly complex character with a challenging job aided by a supporting cast of strong and believable characters.” Library Journal
“Hill tackles Val McDermid territory with a bit more subtlety and a close look at love—how it begins, persists and ends—that may have readers turning to their significant others for a reassuring kiss.” Kirkus Reviews
