Praise for The Benefit of Hindsight

Simon Serrailler, Hill’s brilliant detective, is the central character in the great writer’s crime fiction novels

Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall

Beautifully told, Hill’s gimlet eye and steely prose remind you how fierce she can be

Geoffrey Wansell, Daily Mail

The Benefit of Hindsight evolves organically by way of a brilliant fusion of parts: plot, setting, characters, dialogue... I read it at a sitting. Not just a good book but an experience

Gwen Moffat, Shots

Superb... It's a book to start when you have time to spare as you're not readily going to put it down until you get to the last page... I read it in just over a day and I'm still thinking about the characters days later

Bookbag

I love the Simon Serailler series and this was my favourite for a while... the ongoing family drama is hugely compelling. Add to that cleverly woven mystery elements and this, for me, puts this series somewhere near the top of my literary crime favourites
