'Beautifully told, Hill's gimlet eye and steely prose remind you how fierce she can be' Daily Mail

Lafferton struggles to cope with a series of crimes that threaten the sanctity of hearth and home, leading Simon to engage with his own demons...

One rainy night, a couple welcomes two strangers needing help into their home. It's an act they will regret for the rest of their lives.

On the other side of town a woman is brutally murdered and her husband is left unconscious.

Are the two crimes connected? Serrailler sets out to investigate but will his own demons get in the way?

MEDIA REVIEWS
Simon Serrailler, Hill's brilliant detective, is the central character in the great writer's crime fiction novels -- Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall
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 *

“Finely observed, beautifully written, character driven crime fiction of a high order.”

It is a while since I last read a Simon Serrailler novel, but it was easy to slide back into the characters and I didn’t feel that I needed any more backstory to enjoy this most recent novel.

“Well Developed Story.”

This is the 10th book in the D.C.Simon Serrailler series but reads well as a standalone.

“Did the author get bored and forget to finish the storyline?”

I’m at a loss as to how to review this book. It all started so well. A brilliant con leads to the robbery of a home filled with priceless goods. Then another well-planned burglary again taking only the most expensive... More
