"From the very first moment of Rebecca ("Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again"), readers were immersed in the claustrophobic world of Maxim de Winter, his innocent child bride, and the memory of the malevolent beauty, Rebecca. At the end of Rebecca, Manderley is burning and Maxim and Mrs. de Winter are on their way to the Continent to try to build a quiet, safe life for themselves away from the passionate, violent excesses that nearly destroyed their souls. But could this be possible? Could the de Winters escape or did they ever return home to England to confront the past? What, for that matter, happened to the despicable housekeeper, Mrs. Danvers, and Rebeccas' creepy cousin, Jack Favell?"--Book jacket flap

"Set on the obligatory English moor, on an isolated causeway, the story has as its hero one Arthur Kipps, an up-and-coming young solicitor who has come north to attend the funeral and settle the estate of Mrs. Alice Drablow of Eel Marsh House. The routine formalities he anticipates give way to a tumble of events and secrets more sinister and terrifying than any nightmare: the rocking chair in the nursery of the deserted Eel Marsh House, the eerie sound of pony and trap, a child's scream in the fog, and, most dreadfully, and for Kipps most tragically, the woman in black."--Jacket

But fresh young policewoman Freya Graffham is assigned to the case. She's new to the job, compassionate, dedicated, and inquisitive--maybe too inquisitive.

The soul of discretion : a Chief Superintendent Simon Serrailler mystery by Susan Hill( Book )

From the outside, the cathedral town of Lafferton seems idyllic, but in many ways it is just like any other place. It suffers from the same kinds of crime, is subject to the same pressures from a rapidly changing world, and has the same hopes and fears as any number of towns up and down the land. When Simon Serrailler is called in by Lafferton's new Chief Constable, Kieran Bright, he is met by two plainclothes officers, who ask him to take the principal role in a difficult, potentially dangerous undercover operation. He must leave town immediately, without telling anyone--not even his girlfriend Rachel, who has only just moved in with him. Meanwhile, Simon's sister Cat is facing difficult choices at work, as Lafferton's hospice closes its bedded units--and at home, as her daughter is presented with a glittering opportunity that they would have to struggle to afford. And all is not well with Simon and Cat's stepmother, Judith, either. To complete his special operation, Simon must inhabit the mind of the worst kind of criminal. This takes its toll on Simon and--as the investigation unfolds--also on the town and some of its most respected citizens
