'A crime tale with an emotional core.'
'A crime series that specialises in sidestepping conventions, always to exhilarating effect. These books succeed in harnessing all the genre's addictive power while maintaining a complexity and fascination entirely their own.'
'Nothing's quite as it seems, except Hill's brilliantly compelling prose.'
'Susan Hill's Serrailler novels, with their persuasively-drawn copper and his equally well-rounded family, are real treats.'
*The Daily Express*
'Susan Hill is extremely rare if not unique in having achieved enormous literary success in two genres, that of so-called straight novels and crime fiction ... Deeply engrossing and enjoyable.'
