Publisher Description

"The fertility of Hill's imagination, the range of his power, the sheer quality of his literary style never ceases to delight." —Val McDermid, author of Fever of the Bone

In a stand-alone psychological thriller from acclaimed mystery master Reginald Hill, a mysterious ex-con returns to his remote childhood home on a deadly hunt for revenge. Combining the chilling atmospheres of Thomas Harris’s The Silence of the Lambs, the narrative ingenuity of P.D. James’s The Private Patient, and the compelling characterizations of Hill’s own Dalziel and Pascoe series, Hill delivers a frightful, fast-paced study of suspense at its most sinister in The Woodcutter.

Laurie PS ,

Great book

Read straight through over two days....could not put it down!

The Woodcutter

Agree fully. This was first nonfiction book I read since college--what a stunner! I'll bet that there are other great books from the late Mr. Hill.

Excellent, suspenseful book

This was the first book I've read from Reginald Hill. Could not put it down. Well crafted, full of literary references and lovely, challenging British words (the iPad built in dictionary was most helpful).
Powerfully developed, very human characters, the strong, the weak, the good and the evil, populate this book.
I fully intend to start at the beginning and catch up on Mr. Hill's other books.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
