Description

In this the tenth Simon Serrailler crime novel Simon must engage with his own demons as Lafferton struggles to cope with a series of crimes that threaten the sanctity of hearth and home. On the face of it DC Simon Serrailler has had time to recuperate after the violent incident that cost him his arm and nearly his life. He is back in harness at Lafferton CID but is spending his spare time high up in the cathedral roof making drawings of the medieval angels which are being restored. Lafferton is going through a quiet patch so far as crime is concerned until one rainy night two local men open their front door to a couple seeking shelter. A serious error of judgement in the investigation puts Simon’s reputation on the line and calls into question how full his recovery has really been. In her new role as a private GP Simon’s sister Cat’s medical and counselling skills are tested by terrible and unexpected events at the homes of two very different Lafferton women. Simon and Cat’s unreliable father Richard has returned to live nearby in a luxury apartment for the well-heeled over 60s. He’s soon up to his usual tricks. In this the tenth Simon Serrailler crime novel Simon must battle his own demons as Lafferton struggles to cope with a series of crimes that threaten the very sanctity of hearth and home. ‘Modern crime writing with a dark fierce edge’ Daily Mail ‘Fans cherish Hill’s work for its judicious mix of the professional and personal… Serrailler is one of the most richly drawn coppers in the field’ Barry Forshaw Guardian ‘As addictive as Rankin’ Scotsman ‘Keeps the reader gripped until the last page’ Sunday Express ‘Nothing’s quite as it seems except Hill’s brilliantly compelling prose’ Daily Mirror ‘Exhilarating… addictive’ Independent
