Read full description of the books:
This is just the kind of mystery series that I love. Susan Hill developes her characters in the small town of Lafferton, so you get to know the townspeople in a limited way, just as you'd nod to them on the street in real life. And the main characters are good people, with real problems and serious personality flaws.
There are a lot of different threads in this one, the main story being solving the case left hanging in the last book. The author has no problem portraying evil psychopaths. They are scarier because they kill for pleasure, not for reason.
The author also has no problem with characters who come and go, get relocated, change jobs, die, any of the myriad things that happen in everyone's life. That's what I love best about this series. Main characters grow and change, the mysteries are complex, and the writing is good. I have 5 more to read so far, I hope she continues her Simon Serrailler developement.

Read information about the authorSusan Hill was born in Scarborough, North Yorkshire in 1942. Her hometown was later referred to in her novel A Change for the Better (1969) and some short stories especially "Cockles and Mussels".
She attended Scarborough Convent School, where she became interested in theatre and literature. Her family left Scarborough in 1958 and moved to Coventry where her father worked in car and aircraft factories. Hill states that she attended a girls’ grammar school, Barr's Hill. Her fellow pupils included Jennifer Page, the first Chief Executive of the Millennium Dome. At Barrs Hill she took A levels in English, French, History and Latin, proceeding to an English degree at King's College London. By this time she had already written her first novel, The Enclosure which was published by Hutchinson in her first year at university. The novel was criticised by The Daily Mail for its sexual content, with the suggestion that writing in this style was unsuitable for a "schoolgirl".
Her next novel Gentleman and Ladies was published in 1968. This was followed in quick succession by A Change for the Better, I'm the King of the Castle, The Albatross and other stories, Strange Meeting, The Bird of Night, A Bit of Singing and Dancing and In the Springtime of Year, all written and published between 1968 and 1974.
In 1975 she married Shakespeare scholar Stanley Wells and they moved to Stratford upon Avon. Their first daughter, Jessica, was born in 1977 and their second daughter, Clemency, was born in 1985. Hill has recently founded her own publishing company, Long Barn Books, which has published one work of fiction per year.
