Publisher's Summary

One morning in picture-perfect Bath, England, a teenage girl's body is found on the towpath of a canal: Lorne Woods - beautiful, popular, and apparently the victim of a disturbingly brutal murder. Zoe Benedict - Harley-riding police detective, independent to a fault - is convinced the department head needs to look beyond the usual domestic motives to solve the case. Meanwhile, Zoe's sister, Sally - recently divorced and in dire financial straits - has begun working as a housekeeper for a rich entrepreneur who quickly begins to seem possibly dangerous. When Zoe's investigation turns up evidence that Lorne's attempts to break into modeling had delivered her into the world of webcam girls and amateur porn, a crippling secret from Zoe's past seems determined to emerge.

    "Gripping!"
    If you could sum up Hanging Hill in three words, what would they be?

    Thriller, twisting plot


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Unexpected and novel twists in the plot kept my interest. It was definitely unpredictable (in true Mo Hayder style!)


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Final scene - definitely unexpected!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    It took me a while to warm up to this reader, but I did enjoy her performance by the end.

    "My First MH, But Not Last"

    Good story, a little slow initially, but pace picked up and I found myself totally engaged. Like another reviewer, I too like happy endings, and this one was a bit of a cliff hanger, so I was a little disappointed with that.

    Story
    "I just cannot finish listening to this book."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I don't know


    What could Mo Hayder have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I wouldn't presume to tell an author how to write a book for my enjoyment.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Not totally bad, but the "Sally's daughter" writing as well as the narration voice of this character were horrible. The character, the voice were more than I could stand listening to.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Hanging Hill?

    It's the entire story, not scenes.


    Any additional comments?

    As inexpensive as it was it was still more than it is worth. It goes on and on and on. I didn't like the book, fell asleep listening, tried again, but I cannot continue to put myself through this just because it exists as part of my library.

    "Twisting & Turning right up to the end!"

    So many twists and turns to the story, wasn't sure how this would end up - but yet, another twist... twisted it self right out of being a good read at the end of it.

    Story
    "I Didn't Care for This Book as Others Have"

    Due to the reviews, I was looking forward to this book. I should have returned it but due to the reviews I kept giving it a chance. I wished the author had stayed on story path of a mom, down in her luck and in need of work and her employer's occupation. I found this story line solid. Sadly, the author had too many story lines and many should have been eliminated. Also, I find it difficult to believe that two sisters living in the same town not running in to each other sooner! Really, with two teenage kids and one sister being in law enforcement they should have run in to each other! Lastly, I found Millie beyond annoying and for the two possible final outcomes I hope for the latter.
