Publisher's Summary

They moved everyone that long hot summer fifteen years ago. They needed a new reservoir and an old community seemed a cheap price to pay. They even dug up the dead and moved them too.

But four inhabitants of the valley they couldn't move, for nobody knew where they were. Three little girls had gone missing, and the prime suspect in their disappearance, Benny Lightfoot. This was Andy Dalziel's worst case and now fifteen years on he looks set to relive it.

It's another long hot summer. A child goes missing in the next valley, and old fears arise as someone sprays the deadly message on the wall of Danby: BENNY'S BACK!

Music and myth mingle as the Mid-Yorkshire team delve into their pasts and into their own reserves of experience and endurance in search of answers which threaten to bring more pain than they resolve.

    "Splendid."

    Classic Andy and Pascoe with the always clever Wield and the up and coming Novello make this a winner.

    Excellent narration by one of the great voice actors. Really enjoyed it.

    "A mystery written like literature."

    It is so difficult these days to find a good mystery with great characters that is also well written and a pleasure to the English language ear. Beulah Height kept me caught up in its characters and story for many days.

    "Most enjoyable book to listen to."

    Reginald Hill was a great writer but Jonathon Keeble made this book even better with his narration. He can do a 'reet Yorkshire' accent brilliantly. Despite the difficult subject matter I smiled a lot throughout this book at Daziel's quips and observations and Keeble's delivery of them. Very good book, good story line, brilliant narrator.

    "How high can Hill go?"

    Great to have some new Dalziel and Pascoe books read by a proper narrator. Whoever has influence should get Jonathan Keeble to redo all the books butchered by Brian Glover

    "What a brilliant read"
    Where does On Beulah Height rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Its in the top ten for sure, I was captured from the first chapter


    What does Jonathan Keeble bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Jonathan Keeble is one of the top three narrators in the audible selections. He can portray all the characters as I believe the author would want


    Any additional comments?

    This was my first D&P book and will not be my last. I was originally put off because of the TV show, but the writing style plu the narration by Jonathan Keeble were superb.

    "Good read, perfectly narrated"

    Usual laugh a minute retorts from Fat Andy and company overlayed on credible yet unpredictable plot.

    "Excellent again."

    I do wonder how Reginald Hill continually produces such good stories of such amazing length.
    Well done Reggie, on to the next one for me.

    Any additional comments?

    So well written, so gripping. I just wish that just one of the female characters had even a fraction of the godlike, beatific nature of Pascoe. Not a single female is likeable.

    "Can someone explain the ending?"

    I obviously wasn't paying close enough attention, but if someone is able to explain the ending to me, I'd be grateful! And who did what to Benny and why. Thanks.
