Revenge


Formats & editions


A new Simon Serrailler short story to be published in the run-up to the tenth Simon Serrailler thriller, The Benefit of Hindsight, from the million-copy bestseller Susan Hill

A new Simon Serrailler short story from Susan Hill, throwing Simon into a case like no other: an effigy is hanging in the woods, and soldiers are on the run from demons in their past

Simon Serrailler is awoken into a hazy dawn by the sharp ringing of his phone. Called out to the scene, he’s told that there’s a body strung up in tranquil Harnham Woods. But on closer inspection it’s an effigy – a carefully made dummy, stirring in the breeze. Simon knows that this is no practical joke. It’s a message.

The gruesome result of the search will show that he was right. And the trail will lead him into a dark history of deceit, subterfuge and the damaged lives of soldiers recently returned from Afghanistan. But the question remains: who has finally got their revenge?

If you enjoyed 'Revenge', look out for the tenth Simon Serrailler thriller, The Benefit of Hindsight in October 2019
