I’ve found its best for me to rate a series book - particularly in a long-running series - against its predecessors. By the time the author is on their fifth or sixth book, they’ve built up a continuum of quality in their work which makes it easy (and fair?) to judge a book.
One reason I like series books is that the author can create a cast of characters and follow them through the years. Susan Hill “ages” Simon Serrailler and his family and fellow cops. This book has a wide range of characters and plot lines, most of which come together in the end. One of the creepiest is a couple who moved to Lafferton and has a baby that neither parent can bond with. Serrailler himself botches a couple of cases with somewhat disastrous results. This book is a lot calmer than the previous one where Simon Serrailler loses his arm in the line of duty. Here he learns how to deal - and not to deal - with the loss of the arm.
I’m glad Susan Hill has returned in good form with “The Benefit of Hindsight” because I realised while reading it that Hill’s “creations” are a few of the only fictional characters I wouldn’t mind hanging out with!

It follows the usual pattern regarding Simon's family and to some extent his personal life.
Sadly, nothing compelling about the book at all. Laboured and uninteresting. Not recommended at all.
