A cruel and strange murder confronts detective Simon Serrailler in the 7th novel in this highly successful crime series from international bestselling author Susan Hill.
Duchess of Cornwall Close: sheltered accommodation, a mix of bungalows and flats, newly built and not quite finished. Despite the bitterly cold weather, elderly residents are moving in. They don't notice the figure in the shadows. Someone who doesn't mind the cold. Then, one snowy night, an old lady is murdered--dragged from her bed and strangled with a length of flex. DCS Simon Serrailler and his team are aware of bizarre circumstances surrounding her death--but they keep some of these details secret, while they desperately search for a match. All they know is that the killer will strike again, and will once more leave the same tell-tale signature. The break comes when Simon's former sergeant, the ever cheerful Nathan Coates, tracks down a name: Alan Keyes. But Alan Keyes has no birth certificate, no address, no job, no family, no passport, no dental records. Nothing. Alan Keyes does not exist.
A Question of Identity introduces a new and chilling element into the Simon Serrailler series: it takes the reader inside the mind of a deranged killer. This is Susan Hill's most thrillingly imagined crime novel to date.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Susan Hill:"Not all great novelists can write crime fiction, but when one like Susan Hill does, the result is stunning." —Ruth Rendell "If we're looking for writers to join P. D. James and Ruth Rendell in the pantheon of Britain's best, Hill is definitely on the list." —The Globe and Mail "This is a crime series that specializes in side-stepping conventions, always to exhilarating effect.... The books succeed in harnessing all the genre's addictive power while maintaining a complexity and fascination all their own." —The Independent
