Publisher's Summary

For years, the Stranger House has stood in the village of Illthwaite, offering refuge to travellers. People like Sam, a brilliant young mathematician, who believes that anything that can't be explained by maths isn't worth explaining. And Miguel, a historian running from a priests' seminary, who sees ghosts. Sam is an experienced young woman, Miguel a 26-year-old virgin. But both want to dig up bits of the past that some people would rather keep buried. As they uncover intertwining tales of murder, betrayal, and love, they must put aside their differences to find the dark mysteries at the heart of this ancient place.


What the Critics Say

"A mystery novel, but far more than that. It's gripping...Hill is wonderful." (The Times)

Good listen in the end

The Woodcutter was my first Reginald Hill book, I loved it and I want to hear some of his other books, so I bought this one. I found the first couple of hours quite difficult to stick with not because of the narrator who I thought was very good but because I could not make sense of it, however it was worth staying with as it turned out to be a good story and nearing the end of the book could I make sense of the beginning.

Good detective novel with a touch of romance

A good story particularly well told; the reader distinguishing the great variety of accents, genders and ages in a believable way. The combination meant that I could lose myself in the book and, although a long book, it held me to the end
