Mo Hayder is one of my favourite authors and I've enjoyed all the books of hers that I've read so far.Hanging Hill was, for me, the best by a long shot....the story was fast-moving with a good plotline.Basically the story revolves around 2 sisters who have kind of grown apart until the horrible murder of a teenage girl brings them together again.There are all sorts of different characters in the book-some good, some not-so-good, and this keeps things interesting and makes you wonder what's going to happen next.
Towards the end of the story,I thought I knew who the murderer was, as was Mo's intention, but then out of nowhere it turned out to be not the case....when the identity of the killer was revealed, I literally got chills and thought "Oh,my God-I didn't see that coming"....really good twist.
I highly recommend this book if you like crime fiction-not a lot of really gruesome stuff in it,which was a bit disappointing, as I like that sort of stuff, but a really good,juicy read.Luckily I downloaded this book while on days off, as I literally did not stop reading till it was finished.Poor dog didn't get walked, the housework didn't get done, husband got no attention at all apart from "mmmm?" and "yep".
One of the best books I can remember reading-ever.
