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', young and old, men and women, even a little dog? In "Various Haunts of Men", Susan Hill has created an absolutely convincing small cathedral town (within the orbit of a large urban city). She has peopled it with 'real' characters-the husband-and-wife GPs, the exceedingly dodgy surgeon, the grieving widow who is helped through the ritual of Christmas by her kindly neighbour, the down-to-earth flatmate...and the tall blond police officer, Simon, who stands at the centre of an ordinary world in which gruesome things go on in lock-up garages.

Susan Hill has written a slew of books but this is the first ...
The first in a trilogy of British mystery procedurals featuring Inspector Simon Serrallier combines fine story telling abilities as well as strength of plot and a cast of characters that make this a great read..A series of disappearances seem as if they must be related but the police are puzzled as ...
