© Reginald Hill; (P) W F Howes Ltd
"Clever, involving, and admirably resolved. No one does it better than Hill." (The Guardian)
"Reginald Hill is probably the best living crime writer in the English-speaking world." (The Independent)
Riveting, excellent character development. Engrossing with well-written literary story line. DI Pascoe and his family, relationships with friends and many questions I've had over the years are finally clearly delineated. Entertaining and satisfying, no loose ends, but an avenue for a continuation.
I've now "read" several Dalziel and Pascoe novels and have enjoyed every single one. This one was no exception. The character development was seamless and gave me an intimate sense of each character. While complex, the plot was effectively told. Shaun Dooley is a perfect narrator for these stories - using a unique tone for each character, like watching a play unfold. Kudos to both author and narrator!
One of the reviewers who posts here has said repeatedly that listening to HIll's books is addictive and I have come to agree with him. I love listening to these books which continue to have delightful characters. They are also well plotted, humorous, suspenseful and intelligent. The reader of the last three Hill books is one of the VERY best. I wish he would redo some of the books about which other readers have complained. Evelyn
I did enjoy this, as do all the Dalziel & Pascoe novels, but here it feels like the sequel to a storyline I haven't read, something about an unresolved serial killer (?), and the previous book of the series is unavailable from audible.
I could hardly get through the first hour of this book. So far it consists of smarmy tedious letters being written to Pascoe by some criminal he helped put away. I can't bear to go on, way too tedious for me. Ugh. What a waste of my credits.
I did not care for this story at all. I dislike certain filthy words concerning women included in this book. I also dislike the narration by Shaun Dooley.
Wish I had Saved my credit,
