Publisher's Summary

When Mary Dinwoodie is found choked in a ditch following a night out with her boyfriend, a mysterious caller phones the local paper with a quotation from Hamlet. The career of the Yorkshire Choker is under way....

If Detective Superintendent Dalziel is unimpressed by the literary phone calls, he's downright angry when Sergeant Wield calls in a clairvoyant. Linguists, psychiatrists, mediums, it's all a load of nonsense as far as he's concerned. But meanwhile the Choker strikes again and again and again.

This is how it should be

Why aren't all Audiobooks as classy as this? Wonderful writing, but above all, a five star interpretation by Colin Buchanan. If only some of the dreary, story wrecking narrators would listen to this guy. He is equally as good on all of the other Reginald Hill books in the catalogue.

Another in a great series

Hill delivers another good crime story with his crusty Dalzell and plodding Pascoe. Colin Buchanan should read all of Hill's work because he is simply the 'voice' of Hill for me. And the acerbic wit of Dalzell makes me laugh out loud at times. An enjoyable listen!

Good plot

I had trouble with some of the accents in this book so I know that I missed some of the clues. However, I could not stop listening. In the end, I had to say that I enjoyed this book and definitely plan to read or listen to another one.

Mediocre

Reginald Hill’s Dalziel and Pascoe stories are usually full of colorful characters and even more colorful dialogue. This book might have those things but the narrator makes the listener work for it. Buchanan does the voices well but the tone and cadence is all wrong. He could be reading a telephone book

Reginald Hill and Colin Buchanan deliver again

Reginald Hill and Colin Buchanan deliver again with the sixth installment in the Dalziel and Pasco series. This one describes a murder investigation involving Gypsies, Ellie Pascoe and some of her acquaintances, a gliding club and enough plot twists, sprinkled with Dalziel's witt to entertain until the end. Another top tier effort from Reginald Hill and Colin Buchanan.

alonzo

I am sure I have read a more boring book, I just can;t remember when. A plot that shambles along, a story that seems to go on and pointlessly on. To me finishing this book was a real challenge. bought on the excellance of THE WOODCUTTER I will not be buying Pascoe and Dalziel any time in the near future.

Great Writing But Irritating Reading Style

I was immediately engrossed by the story but could not finish this book due to the readers bizarre delivery. Be sure to listen to a sample before downloading this one. I have loved all of the Reginald Hill books that I have listened to and so selected this one without checking the reader. I wish Audible would reissue this with another reader.
