Beautifully told, Hill's gimlet eye and steely prose remind you how fierce she can be -- Geoffrey Wansell * Daily Mail *
The Benefit of Hindsight evolves organically by way of a brilliant fusion of parts: plot, setting, characters, dialogue... I read it at a sitting. Not just a good book but an experience -- Gwen Moffat * Shots *
Superb... It's a book to start when you have time to spare as you're not readily going to put it down until you get to the last page... I read it in just over a day and I'm still thinking about the characters days later * Bookbag *
I love the Simon Serailler series and this was my favourite for a while... the ongoing family drama is hugely compelling. Add to that cleverly woven mystery elements and this, for me, puts this series somewhere near the top of my literary crime favourites * Liz Loves Books *
