A woman vanishes in the fog up on "the Hill", an area locally known for its tranquillity and peace. The police are not alarmed; people usually disappear for their own reasons. But when a young girl, an old man, and even a dog disappear, no one can deny that something untoward is happening in this quiet cathedral town. Young policewoman Freya Graffham is assigned to the case; she's new to the job, compassionate, inquisitive, dedicated, and needs to know, perhaps, too much. She and the enigmatic detective Chief Inspector Simon Serrailler have the task of unravelling the mystery behind this gruesome sequence of events. From the passages revealing the killer's mind to the final heart-stopping twist, The Various Haunts of Men is an astounding and masterly crime debut and is the first in what promises to be a magnificent series featuring Simon Serrailler.
brilliant characters....slightly weak ending
A very absorbing read as the characters were so well introduced and developed. Overall this was an excellent audiobook, which left me looking for oppurtunities to tune in. However, the book is broken into 7 or 8 chapters which are at least a couple of hours long, very annoying if you lose your place and the book did sort of die off at the end, which left me feeling slightly deflated.
The various haunts of men
Brilliantly read, characters brought to life, really felt like you were in the mystery with them, can't wait to listen to further audios in this series!
