The funeral was held in an Anglican church on a hill just outside the ancient spa town of Bath. Over a thousand years old, the church was no bigger than a chapel, and its driveway was too small for the reporters and photographers who jostled each other for a good vantage-point. It was a warm day, the smells of grass and honeysuckle drifting across the graveyard as the mourners arrived.
Hanging Hill was a little different than other Mo Hayder books that I have read, although I enjoyed it as much or more than her other works. It was a bit more realistic than her previous books which often required the reader to suspend reality or, at least logic, for a bit. The unreality of her earlier books did not make them any less wonderful to read but I felt that the greater reality which marked this one made it all the better. This is the first book I've read by Hayder, and I'm already looking for her others. She writes like an upscale Denise Mina, with dark secrets and horrible twists and turns, but the story takes place in Bath, England instead of seamy Glasgow. Her style is evocative and lyrical, too, without calling attention to itself. It reminds me of a slightly lighter version of Dennis Lehane's earlier novels.
