Simon Serrailler - the Detective Chief Inspector to whom readers were introduced in The Various Haunts of Men - is on vacation in Venice, trying to come to terms with the brutal murder of a young woman who had been in love with him, when a telephone call summons him home.A little boy has been snatched from the front gate of his home, where he was waiting for his lift to school. At the same time, a severely handicapped young woman is hovering between life and death. And an ex-con is trying to go straight, but he's finding it impossible. The Pure in Heart is a crime novel arising out of character and circumstances, about the psychology of crime, something more enthralling than plain thrillers or whodunits.In Lafferton, Serrailler's town, Susan Hill has brilliantly created a community with detail so sharp and true to life readers feel that these people are their own neighbors and friends. But there is terror and evil in their very midst.
