A particularly unpleasant murder, that of a very old woman in a housing project, rocks the town of Lafferton. The murderer has left a distinctive "sign" on the body and at the scene of crime. A couple of weeks later, a similar murder occurs, and a month or so later, so does another. Initial investigations discover that the mysterious "sign" left on the body was the calling card of a suspect who was charged with several murders in the northwest of the country, tried but acquitted on the grounds of insufficient evidence. All indications suggest that this person has simply vanished. Or is he right under their noses? Simon Serrailler is obliged to make delve deeper and scratch out answers.

Although they work beautifully as mysteries, Susan Hill’s Serrailler books are literature. I wish there were a hundred of them.

A "crime novel" spoiled, for me, by romance.

It helps to read the Lafferton books in order, since the family subplot is ongoing from book to book. I like the two elements intertwined: personal + the latest crime to be solved.

Engrossing thriller. It takes a few chapters to get into it but the ending & identity of the murderer will make your jaw drop. Lots of changes in store for Simon, Cat & the whole clan.

I love the stories about the Serraileur family - it adds a lot of interest for me. These books are more than just mysteries.

Hill needs to decide if she is writing a family drama about Cat, her children and family, and hospice issues or a mystery. There is too much going on here which does not further the mystery, and even distracts from it. This is almost two separate books.
