    Some Testimonial About This Book:

  • Sue

    This is becoming one of my favorite series and this has been the best episode so far. the characters continue to be vividly drawn, their actions often woefully human and unexpected. Easy endings and p...

  • Kim

    Another great crime novel featuring Simon Serailler and his team. I read a lot of crime series and this one is different for a couple of reasons: firstly, the books are very character-driven, not just...

    I have just read Susan Hill's second and third mysteries, The Pure in Heart and The Risk of Darkness, back-to-back, and I'm so glad I did, because the stories continue almost seamlessly. A warning to ...
