A Question of Identity: Simon Serrailler, Book 7 | [Susan Hill]

A Question of Identity: Simon Serrailler, Book 7

Duchess of Cornwall Close: sheltered accommodation, a mix of bungalows and flats, newly built and not quite finished. Despite the bitterly cold weather, elderly residents are moving in. Then, one snowy night, an old lady is murdered - dragged from her bed and strangled with a length of flex. DCS Simon Serrailler and his team are aware of bizarre circumstances surrounding her death, but keep some details secret while they desperately search for a match. All they know is that the killer will strike again, and will once more leave the same tell-tale signature.

Publisher's Summary

Duchess of Cornwall Close: sheltered accommodation, a mix of bungalows and flats, newly built and not quite finished. Despite the bitterly cold weather, elderly residents are moving in. Then, one snowy night, an old lady is murdered - dragged from her bed and strangled with a length of flex. DCS Simon Serrailler and his team are aware of bizarre circumstances surrounding her death, but keep some details secret while they desperately search for a match. All they know is that the killer will strike again, and will once more leave the same tell-tale signature.

Then Simon's former sergeant, the ever-cheerful Nathan Coates, tracks down a name: Alan Keyes. But Alan Keyes has no birth certificate, no address, no job, no family, no passport, and no dental records. Nothing. Alan Keyes does not exist.

The seventh in the best-selling Simon Serrailler series, A Question of Identity is Susan Hill's most thrillingly imagined crime novel to date.

    "Thoroughly enjoyable read"

    I've listened to all the Simon Serrailler crime novels and have thoroughly enjoyed them. Particularly gratifying is getting to know the characters in depth and following their travails as well as the crime in hand. To say that Steven Pacey 'narrates' the story is to do him an injustice. He makes the novel and all the characters come to life by adopting very different voices for all the main characters. So distinctive are they you know instantly who is speaking and can picture them in your mind's eye. Thoroughly recommend this series but you should start with Book 1 - I envy you the journey.

    "An improvement"

    I'd given up to the Seraillier novels, they were too middle class, and his flippin' sister got on my nerves with too graphic descriptions of grim medical conditions that seemed to take up 50 per cent of the story. This was a more balanced storyline, there have been some pretty awful ones in the past. However, I still think the first novel in the series is the best.

    "Back on form"

    I am a great fan of the Simon Serrailler books, but was slightly disappointed at Book 6. This one, though, was back to its usual standard. The books have two aspects - the solving of the crime and the continuing lives of the characters. It is not a James Bond type action story, but much more of a thoughtful, fascinating look at what makes various people tick. I would definitely recommend reading these books in the right order, as there is so much to be gained by relating to the continuing lives of the main characters. Just one slight quibble - I'm not sure that I quite believed who the culprit eventually turned out to be, but all in all an extremely enjoyable read. Steven Pacey is the perfect narrator for these books.

    "Brilliant Serrailler"

    Another brilliant Serrailler story from Susan Hill that I really couldn't stop listening to. What I love about this series is the mixture of characteristion that is sometimes reminiscent of PD James and the familiarity of the lives of the extended Serrailler family. Steven Pacey has the perfect voice for this series too. If you have never listened to this series start with Book 1 - I'm envious of all you've got to look forward to !

    "Another Masterpiece"

    Susan Hill has done it again, I've listened to all the Simon Serrailler novels from book 1 through to 7 and have absolutely loved getting to know all the main characters, its almost like they are real people the whole stories are so well written. Steven Pacey does a fantastic narrator's job bringing the whole text to life. Can highly recommend book 7 in the Serrailler series, definitely worth a listen as a stand alone crime novel or as a follow on from book 6 and all the other books in the series. I simply can not wait for audible to get in book 8 once its released now having just finished book 7 tonight, its definitely left me wanting more.

    "A very satisfying continuation of the series"

    I've followed all the books in this series featuring the thoughtful and aloof detective Simon Serrailler and am glad to say that his latest book is excellent. A satisfyingly complex detective story enhanced by the well-rounded characters whose lives thread through all the books. I think one gets more from the series if read in chronological order for, although their back-stories are eluded to in this book, one gets a greater sense of the evolving lives of the characters who populate all the books. The reader is first class

    "Another great book"

    Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Another good read in this series. The crime story was a good one, very gripping but what I love about these books is the ongoing stories of the Serrailer family. The characters are well written and I care deeply about what happens to them. The writing is clean, strong and active.
    The reader is excellent and brings the story to life, as usual. A great read.

    "The best Serrailler book yet!"

    Great intricate story line. If you haven't started the Serrailler series yet leave this to the end as it adds more to the series. Excellent narration.
