Description:

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.

Quotes:

[Hayder] has in no way lost her ability to shock, thrill, entertain, and occasionally torture us with her use of words...A chiller to the very end. Hayder deals with Britain at its grittiest., Peter Millar, , The Times (London)

Starred Review. ...superb stand-alone...Hayder uses her trademark violence to perfect sinister effect., Publishers Weekly

Hanging Hill is an authentically disturbing, gripping winner., Christopher Fowler, , Financial Times

This is an enjoyable book. Hayder has dispensed with her usual set of characters from earlier novels, and come up with a believable and interesting set. The main characters are carefully drawn, and while Zoe is a strong, independent woman, with a few neuroses underneath, she is not too neurotic and the more likable for it. The story itself is a good one, and Hayder's best book so far I think and I hope that Zoe turns up in future books., EuroCrime

Without a doubt [narrator] Rosalyn Landor carries this story. She beautifully manages a broad range of voices and characters...her pacing invigorates the story line...creates excellent differentiation among the players with exquisite voicings..., AudioFile Magazine
