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.

One of my favourites

I am greedily working my way through this series and although I started to suspect "whodoneit" the twists and turns kept me enjoying this to the end.
One of my favourites so far

Good Read!

Struggled with the first few chapters as there were so many characters and families but it all came together well. I very much enjoyed it and can certainly recommend it.

Thoroughly brilliant series

I am so pleased I found these - hooked from book one and they are all great books. Perhaps Steven Pacey makes the difference as he narrates everything so well - you really get pulled into the stories.

I would read these in order as the family background runs through the books and it helps if you know the history.

Definitely more of these please!

Series begins to get tiresome.

What did you like best about A Question of Identity? What did you like least?

I enjoyed this series to begin with but now the characters are getting in the way of the story rather than wanting to know them more I am getting bored with how utterly miserable they all are. I know that crime fiction isn't laugh a minute but you need some lightness in the dark.
I probably won't read any more of these.

What about Steven Pacey’s performance did you like?

Steven Pacey is always good. Consistent and a nice voice.

Another great tale of the family name I can't spell.

Keeps you thinking about who did it, and the result was a surprise to me. Simon continue to suffer in love but there is a new family twist!

Good listening

Nicely narrated by Steven Pacey.

I quite enjoyed this book, it did take a little while to get into it as characters were introduced and I couldn't work out relationships or why they were mentioned. however I stuck with it on the second attempt and it was OK. Some parts were strange in that characters behaved in a way one wouldn't expect, but overall a good story, and well read.

Brilliant!

I am a fan of Susan Hill's Serrailer novels. They are beautifully written, intelligent and gripping - psychologically accurate with complex, totally believable characters. The side stories of the Serrailer family whic run alongside but are separate to the thriller plot line make these truly literary novels and not confined to the crime genre.

The reader is excellent.
