THE VARIOUS HAUNTS OF MEN

Susan Hill

Publisher: Vintage
ISBN: 0099462095
2004

Susan Hill biography by Chris High

A lonely woman of 53 never returns from a morning run - hidden in her cupboard is an expensive pair of cuff-links with a note: “To You, with all possible love from your devoted, Me”.

A girl vanishes in the dusk - is it to do with her teenage crush on Dava, the blue-eyed ' therapist' whose speciality is 'inner harmony'? Experienced policemen know that most missing persons either turn up or go missing on purpose. But fresh-faced DS Freya Gresham won't drop it - what could possibly link the people who disappear on “The Hill”?

The Various Haunts Of Men
by Susan Hill


In the first of three novels to feature DCI Simon Serrailler, Susan Hill proves that she is more than capable of switching between genres with aplomb. The descriptions, as one might expect from the author of classics such as The Woman In Black, are almost filmic whilst the dialogue is snappy enough to carry the plot along at a whirlwind pace.

In The Various Haunts Of Men, Susan Hill has created a totally believable contemporary provincial world, whilst her portrayal of the everyday only enhances the incredible tension that is held within the story.
