Publisher's Summary

Simon Serrailler is faced with that most complicated of investigations - a cold case. Freak weather and flash floods all over southern England. Half of Lafferton is afloat. A landslip on the Moor has closed the bypass and, as the rain slowly drains away, a shallow grave - and a skeleton - are exposed. It doesn’t take long to identify the remains as those of the missing teenager, Harriet Lowther, last seen carrying a tennis racket while waiting for a bus. But that was 16 years ago.
How long will it take to trawl through the old, stale evidence and assess it anew?

Excellent crime writing

The author manages to weave into the thread of the crime her obvious concern for terminal illness, health care, and euthanasia. Very skillfully worked, the crime novel in itself is convincing and well written, only revealing the perpetrators well towards the end of the book. And as for the reader, he is most excellent. I don't think it would be the same without him, I shall be looking for other "reads" with him, definitely.

Not for the faint- hearted

I have always enjoyed the Serrailler series and eagerly fall on a new publication. This had all the familiar and enjoyable characters and small town settings but it gives a whole new meaning to the phrase "old age is not for sissies". Dementia, Parkinson's, old peoples' homes and assisted dying are all looked at without sentimentality. Susan Hill writes well and I was absorbed and appalled in equal measure - but not entirely entertained.
