Another absolutely captivating story from a superb writer. Book after book from this lady is amazingly intense and so well written. It just never stops - the way the stories grab your attention and hold you from beginning to end. Never a disappointment. Never a let-up in intensity from one book to the next. It is a joy to read this lady's writing - she does it so damned well.

Only John Connelly comes close to delivering the amazing combination of humanity, horror, and the struggle between what we can and can't control. Lucky for us, Mo has done it again. This book is worth every sentence.

While I think I preferred ``Gone'' to this one, I still enjoyed it.

I just discovered Mo Hayder's books this past summer. Have already read all of them. Hanging Hill is another full of twists and turns and more importantly a can't put it down book.

The author is known for writing thrillers, sometimes with horrific plots and graphic details. This novel pales by comparison, with merely an offstage rape scene to occasion a police procedural of somewhat questionable means, and a side story about two sisters who have had virtually no contact for 20 years but are in a sense joined at the hip by the rape victim, and then that thread develops into an evolving family relationship. The story is more about the various characters—the two sisters, their lovers, their own background and history—and how each is affected, rather than the crime and ensuing investigation which seems to be an afterthought to contribute to the main plotline. Written with verve, the novel seems to drag along except for some more “exciting” portions. Much of the descriptions of one sister’s divorce and subsequent life seem labored, and the ending was to this reader quite unsatisfactory. In fact the title of the book might be a fit description for its conclusion: It seems to just hang without any wrapping up. That notwithstanding, the novel still bears reading, and is recommended.
