Cracking Crime: The Various Haunts of Men by Susan Hill

The Various Haunts of Men by Susan Hill

People are going missing. Only one thing links their cases: they all disappear on the Hill.

About the book

A woman vanishes in the fog up on the Hill in Lafferton. The police have one lead – a pair of expensive cuff-links found in her flat, with a mysterious note attached to them.

Then a young girl, an old man and even a dog disappear in quick succession in exactly the same place.

Young policewoman Freya Graffham and Chief Inspector Simon Serrailler are given the task of unravelling the mystery. But can they find the Hill killer before he strikes again?

It’s Dead Good because…

The first in Susan Hill’s bestselling Simon Serrailler series, The Various Haunts of Men grips you from the opening lines and has an ending so shocking you’ll need a stiff drink after reading it. Peace is shattered in the idyllic town of Lafferton as innocent people start disappearing. The main story, which follows the police in their hunt for the missing, is interspersed with chapters narrated by the killer – allowing the reader to build a fuller picture than the police, and providing a chilling insight into the mind of a psychopath. The Daily Mail called it ‘a gripping whodunnit’, the Daily Telegraph hailed Susan Hill as a successor to P.D. James and Ruth Rendell, while Ruth Rendell herself declared: ‘I loved this book’. Read it and see for yourself!
