DCS Simon Serrailler, gravely wounded in The Soul of Discretion (2015), retreats to the Scottish island of Taransay to recuperate and contemplate his future. The island's solitude proves restorative, and Simon instinctively begins investigating when the body of popular islander Sandy Murdoch washes ashore. Common sense indicates accidental death; Taransay is constantly pummeled by the sea and storms. But a hidden bullet wound shifts Simon's investigation into a murder inquiry. Meanwhile, back in Lafferton, Kieron Bright, Simon's chief (and new brother-in-law), seeks Simon's take on a cold case. Kimberley Still disappeared while taking her lunch break in a Lafferton park, and her grief-fueled mother has enlisted the media in decrying the department's investigation. After discovering the truth behind Murdoch's murder, Simon returns to Lafferton to tackle the cold case and becomes instantly immersed in the comforting, benign turmoil of his family's changing seasons. Hill's writing prowess is on full view here; both newcomers and the series' many established fans will find it difficult to leave the Serraillers' world at the close of this long-awaited entry. A good choice for Louise Penny fans. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.
