Hanging Hill by Mo Hayder

Married to a successful business man, Sally has always been a bit of a dreamer. Until now. Her sister Zoe is her polar opposite. A detective inspector working out of Bath Central, she loves her job, and oozes self-confidence.

Reviews

an authentically disturbing gripping winner. FT Weekend 20110402 With Mo Hayder you never know where you are going until you get there. A chiller to the very end. THE TIMES 20110416 She handles the plot with all the expertise and flair that her earlier work leads you to expect. SUNDAY TIMES 20110424 Hayder is an excellent writer...She has the priceless ability to keep you turning the pages...especially with the novel's sly and beautifully finessed twist in the tail. SPECTATOR 20110604 ...an incendiary scenario, one that Hayder dispatches with her customary power. Good Book Guide, Oct 11

Maxim Jakubowski's view on DI JACK CAFFERY...

A London cop in self-exile in Bristol who is running from his past, now working in tandem with a local female police diver. Not for the faint-hearted, a series that explores the heart of darkness and chills to the bones. SKIN is the 4th in the series.

1. Birdman (2000)
2. The Treatment (2001)
3. Ritual (2008)

4. Skin (2009)
