9780099534990: The Pure in Heart

The second novel featuring Detective Inspector Simon Serrailler set in the English Cathedral town of Lafferton.

A little boy is kidnapped as he stands with his satchel at the gate of his home, waiting for a lift to school. An ex-con finds it impossible to stay straight. A severely handicapped young woman dies in the night — has someone who loves her helped her out of this world?

Once again, Susan Hill brilliantly creates a community, with detail so sharp and convincing that readers feel that these people are their neighbours. And that terror and evil are always in their midst. . . .

About the Author:

Susan Hill is an award-winning novelist. She wrote Mrs de Winter, the bestselling sequel to Rebecca, and the ghost story The Woman in Black, which was adapted for the stage and has been running for eighteen years. Her most recent books are a collection of exquisite short stories, The Boy Who Taught the Beekeeper to Read, and the highly successful crime novel, The Various Haunts of Men. She lives in Gloucestershire where she runs her own small publishing company.

From AudioFile:

Steven Pacey's impressive narration leads us into the heart of this atmospheric mystery, the second in a series about Simon Serrailler, detective chief inspector of the Lafferton CID. In this one, a 9-year-old boy is abducted as he waits for his ride to school, convulsing the quiet cathedral town. Subplots involving Serrailler's family and various townspeople add to the complexity of the story. Pacey beautifully brings to life a wide range of characters, using accent and intonation to help listeners understand personality and relationships. He also paces the many conversations realistically. From exhausted late-night conference between colleagues to the seductive persuasions of a small-time crime boss--we hear, and we enjoy.
