"Simon Serrailler is on sabbatical on a Scottish island, recovering from an exhausting murder investigation, when he is urgently summoned back to Lafferton. Two local prostitutes have been found strangled. By the time Serrailer has reached the town, another girl has vanished. Is this a vendetta against prostitutes by someone with a warped mind? Or a series of killings by an angry punter? Then the wife of the new Dean at the Cathedral goes missing - has the killer widened their net or is there more than one murderer at large?"--Back cover.

Typical Susan Hill and a very good read.She knows her English people at all levels of society very well and her people, with all their foibles, are entirely believable.

I enjoyed this book but was very disappointed with the bad language sprinkled throughout.
I am sure Susan Hill could have used different words to express her feelings.

One of my favorite British crime novelists. Lots of character depth and mystery, hard to put down.
