Susan Hill's Simon Serrailler series has established itself as superior crime fare with four gripping psychological thrillers already in print.

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 goes missing and then another respectable woman is taken on her way to work, the townspeople grow angry and afraid. Serrailler is in the greatest danger of his life.

Praise for Susan Hill

"It's the intelligence of this brooding series that rivets a reader's attention." -Maureen Corrigan, Washington Post

"Hill knows how to keep those pages turning." -Chicago Sun-Times

"This is the fifth of Hill's exceptional series (after The Various Haunts of Men, The Pure in Heart, The Risk of Darkness, and The Vows of Silence). Her characters continue to be intelligent and engaging, and the perfect balance of drama, atmosphere, and suspense holds the reader to the very last page. Highly recommended for fans of thoughtful British mysteries, especially those written by P.D. James, Martha Grimes, and Tana French." --Library Journal
