The Woodcutterby Reginald Hill
Synopses & Reviews
Wolf Haddas life has been a fairy tale. From his humble origins as a Cumbrian woodcutters son, he has risen to become a hugely successful entrepreneur, happily married to the woman of his dreams.
A knock on the door one morning ends it all. Universally reviled, thrown into prison while protesting his innocence, abandoned by friends and family, Wolf retreats into silence. Seven years later, prison psychiatrist Alva Ozigbo makes a breakthrough. Wolf begins to talk, and under her guidance he is paroled, returning to his family home in rural Cumbria.
But there was a mysterious period in Wolfs youth when he disappeared from home and was known to his employers as the Woodcutter. And now the Woodcutter is back, looking for the truth—and revenge. Can Alva intervene before his pursuit of vengeance takes him to a place from which he can never come back?
The Woodcutter is a treat that both lovers of the Dalziel and Pascoe series and newcomers to the always masterful work of Reginald Hill will devour.
"Thefertility of Hill's imagination, the range of his power, the sheer quality ofhis literary style never ceases to delight." —Val McDermid,author of Fever of the Bone
In a stand-alone psychological thrillerfrom acclaimed mystery master Reginald Hill, a mysterious ex-con returns to hisremote childhood home on a deadly hunt for revenge. Combining the chillingatmospheres of Thomas Harriss The Silence of the Lambs, the narrativeingenuity of P.D. Jamess The Private Patient, and the compellingcharacterizations of Hills own Dalziel and Pascoeseries, Hill delivers a frightful, fast-paced study of suspense at its mostsinister in The Woodcutter.
