Staff Reviews

People are missing in Bafferton. A woman never returns from a walk, a jogger never returns home, and an old man disappears. The enigmatic Inspector Simon Serrailler and his assistant are assigned the cases. Well written, interesting characters. If you like PD James or Elizabeth George you'll enjoy Susan Hill. — Sarah Knight


As the story begins, a lonely woman vanishes while out on her morning run. Then a 22-year-old girl never returns from a walk. An old man disappears too. When fresh-faced policewoman Freya Graffham is assigned to the case, she runs the risk of getting too invested--too involved--in the action. Alongside the enigmatic detective Chief Inspector Simon Serrallier, she must unravel the mystery before events turn too gruesome. Written with intelligence, compassion, and a knowing eye--in the tradition of the fabulous mysteries of Ruth Rendell and P.D. James--The Various Haunts of Men is an enthralling journey into the heart of a wonderfully developed town, and into the very mind of a killer.
