Overview

Praise for Sophie Hannah:

“What does motherhood mean? What should a mother do if her child is in danger? . . . It’s those choices and their consequences that make Little Face compelling.”—The Washington Post

“As . . . Agatha Christie gleefully trampled on that sacrosanct rule of the mystery novel to ‘play fair with the reader,’ the power this novel packs derives from narrators who play fast and loose with what they know. . . . The solution is a stunner.”—The Boston Globe

“Spine-tingling.”—Romantic Times (top pick)

“A tautly claustrophobic spiral of a story.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Clever and original. . . . She has a brilliant new career ahead of her.”—BookPage

“A splendid crime-psychological thriller. . . . A book so well-plotted and so well-written deserves to have its surprises kept intact.”—St. Louis-Post Dispatch

“Riveting reading.”—Mystery Scene

A serial rapist relies on successful career women’s shame to insulate him from punishment. Then one of them sets out to find her missing lover, a married man, and in so doing exposes a sinister plot.

Sophie Hannah is an award-winning, best-selling poet in England. Her previous psychological thriller, Little Face, was an acclaimed bestseller in the United Kingdom, as was Hurting Distance.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

In Hannah's intense second thriller (after Little Face), Det. Sgt. Charlie Zailer and her sidekick, Det. Constable Simon Waterhouse, pursue a serial rapist who preys on successful single career women and sells tickets to "live" rape parties. Naomi Jenkins, a sundial maker prone to panic attacks, reports her married lover, Robert Haworth, missing after he fails to show up for their weekly tryst. Later, in order to speed up the search, Naomi informs the police that Robert raped her three years earlier. Simon finds Robert at home, near death, after possibly being bludgeoned by his wife. But there's far more going on, and making matters more dodgy, aside from a growing victim list, is the foolish fling Charlie has with the owner of a chalet-style resort in Scotland. Full of clever plot twists, this satisfying shocker about "the victims and the perpetrators of violent crimes" suggests how obsessive love, while not a crime, is certainly within hurting distance. (Oct.)

    Sophie Hannah, Hurting distnce

    This is a great book. However: it should be pointed out that it has also been published with the title "The truth-teller's lie."
    So be careful not to end up buying the same book twice.

    Excellent police procedural

    Sundial maker Naomi Jenkins comes to the Spilling police station because she is panicking over the whereabouts of her forty years old lover Robert Haworth, a lorry driver. Every Thursday for the past year, they have met at the Rawndesley East Services Traveltel for a three hour tryst the married with no kids Robert failed to show up for the first time Naomi believes his wife Juliet harmed him. Detective Sergeant Charlie Zailer and Detective Constable Simon Waterhouse have no time for a trivial side inquiry as they work on the case of a blatant serial rapist who charges admission to watch him live while he forces himself on career women. They take a haphazard look into the reported Haworth disappearance, but his wife convinces the police he is not missing. Realizing the cops are going to drop the case, Naomi claims Robert raped her three years earlier. Simon visits Robert¿s home to question him re the allegation only to find him dying from knife wounds. Meanwhile as more victims surface Charlie gets involved with resort owner Graham Anguilley that keeps her mind off the case. --- Loaded with brilliant twists and red herrings, the second Spilling English police procedural (see LITTLE FACES, not read by me) is a terrific tale that focuses on the victims and culprits of violent crimes as the investigation serves as a mechanism for a deep look at the symbiotic nature of violence and not just crime. Ironically love can turn into a bullying ¿sibling¿ relationship between a victim and their perpetrator. Fans will appreciate this strong insightful thriller filled with spins into the psyche of people. --- Harriet Klausner
