Vows of Silence, Susan HIll

This is the fourth of the Serrallier mysteries and as the series progresses Hill is starting to give PD James a run for her money.

Once again the Cathedral town of Lafferton is under threat this time from a gunman – not a crazed one – this one has a plan. His intended targets young woman under thirty. DCS Serrallier is stumped, no clues, no leads, no sightings of the gunman no idea of where he will strike next. Paula Devenish is worried, the press are busy hyping the killer and castigating the police. Another wedding looms this one with royalty attending. The whole force is on edge and with Simon dealing with a personal tragedy he could be losing focus. Simon takes a risk that if it fails could cost him his beloved career. Hill’s tale of family, deep religious themes, a killer addicted to killing and a lone wolf Superintendent determined to catch him is a page turner that will keep you on the edge of your seat and even make you cry a little.
