This is well written and kept me engaged although I got confused many times by the author's introduction of yet another new character We are allowed inside their thoughts which is intriguing but seemed like window dressing as most of them are not integral to the plot There is a prolonged discussion too about illness and about the pros and cons of medical doctors versus holistic and alternate therapists All of which was again not necessary to the story but was interestingThe worst thing this writer does is break with traditional story lines and kill off the main detective that you have grown to admire and sympathize with This is subtitled a Simon Serrailler mystery but he was barely mentioned in the text all we are told about him is he is handsome cold artistic and competent at his job as head of police

THE VARIOUS HAUNTS OF MEN Pol Proc DS Freya Graffam England Cont – NRHill Susan – 1st in seriesChatto Windus 2004 UK Hardcover – ISBN 185619714xFirst Sentence Last week I found a letter from youIn a small English cathedral town a 53 year old single woman disappears while on her daily run on “The Hill” DS Freya Graffam searches the woman’s cottage for clues and finds a hidden present; a pair of expensive cufflinks and a note saying “To You with all possible love from your devoted Me” It is surprising as no one knew the woman had been seeing any one As Freya investigates she also finds a number of other people who have disappeared from “The Hill” as wellI was annoyed by this book almost from the first page I felt drowned in a minutia of detail which had no real relevance to the plot There are too many strands to the plot many of which are just left hanging at the end Many of the characters begin as interesting but again fade off to nothing This is supposed to be a “Simon Serrailler” book but his presence in the story is negligible The subject of conventional versus non conventional medicine could have been interesting but becomes rambling instead The book is overlong and I lost interest about half way through the book and skimmed from there on until toward the end I was underwhelmed by the killer’s motive and annoyed to have the killer revealed significantly before the end of the book The end of this book was one that moved it into the category of a wall banger for me This book has been sitting on my shelf since 2004 I regret having wasted the time to read it and even wasted the money to buy it
