Hill tackles Val McDermid territory with a bit more subtlety and a close look at love-how it begins, persists and ends-that may have readers turning to their significant others for a reassuring kiss.-- "Kirkus Reviews"
The fact that The Vows of Silence is light on what traditionally constitutes a mystery plot hardly registers. It's the intelligence of this brooding series that rivets a reader's attention.-- "Washington Post"
This top-notch, tautly plotted British mystery series just keeps getting better. Serrailler is a satisfyingly complex character with a challenging job aided by a supporting cast of strong and believable characters.-- "Library Journal" --This text refers to the audioCD edition.
'As always, Hill creates a marvellous cast of characters with absorbing contemporary concerns.' (The Daily Mail)
'The narrative is so streamlined and effective that it races beautifully along until it smacks against the buffers of an unexpected but entirely convincing ending.' (The Spectator) --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

What always grips me about these stories is that Simon is a far from perfect human being. He resents his father's new partner and cannot make up his mind about whether he wants someone in his own life permanently. He rows with his much loved sister Cat, and lets his own feelings colour his relationships with colleagues to the extent he almost misses his chance to unmask the gunman.
As ever, this is a complex story with many sub plots which keep you guessing right to the end. I had my suspicions about the identity of the gunman - which proved to be correct - but this did not spoil my enjoyment of the story. The clues are there but so are the red herrings and there are several possible candidates. Will Helen and Phil find happiness in spite of Helen's disapproving son? How will Cat cope when she has to be doctor and wife and still maintain a normal front for the children? What about the fate of the various young women about to be married and the Royal visitors to the society wedding? Jane Fitzroy also makes an appearance - how will Simon deal with seeing her again? This is a well written and thought provoking psychological thriller about human beings - faults and all.
