Steven Pacey offers a suburb reading of Susan Hill’s entertaining newest mystery featuring Superintendent Simon Serrailler and the denizens of Lafferton, an imaginary English cathedral town. In this book, Serrailler is called back from vacation to oversee an investigation into the serial murders of young prostitutes. As the investigation unfolds, we pursue the lives of several of the “working girls,” follow the goings-on at the cathedral, and track life’s complications for Serrailler and his extended family. The action varies from calm conversation to heightened suspense, and Pacey’s fine-tuned reading increases the pleasures of both. His mastery of class and regional accents serves to deepen listeners’ understanding of the plot and issues. And his ability to voice believable men, women, boys, and girls is truly remarkable.
