The Risk of Darkness, Paperback Book
4 out of 5 (1 rating)


Children are vanishing. The village of Lafferton is shattered. There are no witnesses and no leads - just a kidnapper at large.

Then Detective Chief Inspector Simon Serrailler receives a call: a child has been snatched in Yorkshire.

Has the abductor struck again? And will they find this child alive? "Not all great novelists can write crime fiction but when one like Susan Hill does the result is stunning." (Ruth Rendell).

Review by

Another really good book in an excellent series, this is the third. Definitely a middle of the series book though and not the place to start. It continues a story begun in the previous book and more or less ties it up. It doesn't answer everything but I'm quite happy with it anyway. Good, and I will keep reading. Not much more to say really!
