William Trevor (1994)
An outstanding psychological thriller that is no less menacing for its subdued tone. Hilditch is the epitome of a mild-mannered serial killer, a quiet, middle-aged man living a seemingly mundane life, while a complex, darker true nature lies just beneath the surface. The story intertwines multiple points of view: Felicia, the pregnant Irish girl who has immigrated to England to find the boyfriend who abandoned her; Hilditch, the seemingly good Samaritan with a haunting collection of young women in his past; and Miss Calligary, a door-to-door evangelist who becomes suspicious of Hilditch when Felicia disappears. A compelling and unpredictable read from start to finish.
