9780099575948: The Soul of Discretion: Simon Serrailler Book 8

The cathedral town of Lafferton seems idyllic, but in many ways it is just like any other place. As part of the same rapidly changing world, it shares the same hopes and fears, and the same kinds of crime, as any number of towns up and down the land.

When one day DC Simon Serrailler is called in by Lafferton’s new Chief Constable, Kieron Bright, he is met by four plainclothes officers. He is asked to take the lead role in a complex, potentially dangerous undercover operation and must leave town immediately, without telling anyone – not even his girlfriend Rachel, who has only just moved in with him.

Meanwhile, Simon’s sister Cat is facing difficult choices at work that will test her dedication to the NHS. But an urgent call about her and Simon’s father, Richard, soon presents her with a far greater challenge much closer to home.

To complete his special op, Simon must inhabit the mind of the worst kind of criminal. As the op unfolds, Lafferton is dragged into the sort of case every town dreads. And Simon faces the fight of his life.

Review:

"This is modern crime writing with a dark, fierce edge – and all the better for it" (Geoffrey Wansell Daily Mail)

"A wonderful storyteller… she is also one of those rare crime writers whose books invite a second reading" ( Scotsman)

"Hill's Serrailler novels have developed into a series whose appeal stretches beyond their genre... The secret of Hill's narrative style is that she forces the readers to invest emotionally in her characters. And then she makes ghastly things happen to them... It sounds easy, but it isn't" ( Spectator)

"The Simon Serrailler novels are in a league of their own; literate, detailed and full of drama - they stand head and shoulders above the majority of crime novels. This is the eighth novel in the series and is the darkest and most disturbing yet. It is also the best." ( CrimeSquad)

"Kept me turning the pages, gripped" ( Woman & Home)

Review:

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

'What you know about human nature is simultaneously being enlarged and improved upon thanks to Hill's almost Shakespearean insights into what it is to be.' (The Daily Express)

'She has the priceless ability to construct a solidly-researched narrative that keeps the reader turning the pages.' (The Independent)
