But we had to share this starred review from Booklist. Our favorite part--"This is a hugely satisfying, highly entertaining, masterfully written book in which Hill is once again at the top of her game." Wonderful to hear! And don't forget that Deb's Book Blog is giving away all FIVE of Susan's Simon Serrallier mysteries--go here to enter!
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. DCS Simon Serrailler has taken some much-needed time off after solving a high-profile, high-pressure case. But he’s called back to work when two local prostitutes are brutally murdered, and his team of detectives is struggling to find a single useful clue to the killer’s identity. But the murders aren’t the only issue Simon has to worry about—his sister, Cat, is still trying to deal with her husband’s tragic death, his father is thinking of heading off to America, and his nephew is showing signs of preteen rebellion. Still, it’s the murders that must be Simon’s top priority, but he continues to hit brick walls at every turn. Fearing he may never solve the case, Simon is nearly ready to give up when the killer reveals himself in a near-tragic event that hits all too close to home. This is a hugely satisfying, highly entertaining, masterfully written book in which Hill is once again at the top of her game. — Emily Melton
