Summary

Summary

The Pure in Heart is the second of Susan Hill’s novels set in the English Cathedral town of Lafferton and featuring the enigmatic policeman, Detective Chief Inspector Simon Serrailler. A little boy is kidnapped as he stands with his satchel at the gate of his home, waiting for his lift to school. An ex-con finds it impossible to stay straight. A severely handicapped young woman dies in the night—has someone who loves her helped her out of this world? Once again, Susan Hill brilliantly creates a community with detail so sharp and convincing that readers feel that these people are their neighbors … and that terror and evil are always in their midst.
