9780099462101: The Pure In Heart: Simon Serrailler Book 2

The Pure in Heart is the second of Susan Hill's novels set in the English Cathedral town of Lafferton and featuring the enigmatic policeman, Detective Chief Inspector Simon Serrailler. A little boy is kidnapped as he stands with his satchel at the gate of his home, waiting for his lift to school. A severely handicapped young woman hovers between life and death. An ex-con finds it impossible to stay straight...Haunting and truthful, gripping and convincing, The Pure in Heart is neither a thriller nor a whodunnit, but a fascinating crime novel arising out of character and circumstance.

Review:

"For the first time in years, P.D. James has serious competition" (Philip Oakes Literary Review)

"She draws us so far into her fictitious community that for the duration of the book (and some time afterwards) we too are living there" ( Daily Mail)

"Beautifully drawn characters...a tantalising mystery" ( Sunday Telegraph)

"Captures sinister atmosphere brilliantly...her characters are drawn with loving detail" ( Spectator)

"Highly unsettling" ( Daily Telegraph)

From the Publisher:

'Not all great novelists can write crime fiction but when one like Susan Hill does it the result is stunning.' Ruth Rendell
