Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"With crime rates down, Lafferton has been quiet, until one night when a couple opens their front door to a distressing scene. Serrailler makes a serious error in judgment when handling the incident, and the stress of this, combined with the ongoing trauma of losing his arm, takes its toll. Meanwhile, Serrailler's sister, Cat, has begun a new role as a private GP, and terrible and unexpected events at the homes of two of her patients test her medical skills..."--from book jacket.

    Man Booker–shortlisted Hill's slow-burning, character-driven novel, the tenth in her Simon Serrailler series, combines two mysteries with a tale of personal strife. Lafferton, England, DCI Serrailler is back at work after losing his arm to violence. He's barely holding up, with panic attacks threatening to derail his career, when a decision goes badly wrong, and he's blamed for the death of a local woman. At the same time, his sister, Dr. Cat Deerbon, is pulled into the twilight world of prenatal depression when one of her patients can't shake the feeling that her baby is doomed and later can't show the child any love, a situation that's meticulously and sensitively portrayed by Hill (The Comforts of Home, 2018). The question of what will become of the unfortunate mother and baby lies beneath an intimate look at wrenching choices and their aftermath. This is one to hand to Tana French fans and all who enjoy a mix of the personal and the mysterious. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
