Books - Hanging Hill
Mo Hayder, internationally best-selling author of Skin and Gone, has firmly established her reputation as a master of gritty, gripping page-turners. Fast-paced and addictive, her latest, Hanging Hill, centers around a pair of estranged sisters, one a policeman, and the gruesome homicide of a teenage beauty which leads them deeper than they ever anticipated into an underground world of sex and violence.
One morning in picture-perfect Bath, England, a teenage girl's body is found on the towpath of a canal. Lorne Wood—beautiful, popular, and apparently the victim of a brutal murder. Why was she on the towpath late at night alone? 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 supporting a daughter who was friends with the dead girl—has begun working as a housekeeper for a rich entrepreneur who quickly begins to seem less eccentric than repugnant, and possibly dangerous. When Zoe's investigation uncovers evidence that Lorne's attempts to break into modeling had delivered her into the world of webcam porn, a crippling secret from Zoe's past seems determined to emerge.
