Publisher's Summary

Like father, like son…

But heredity seems to have gone a gene too far when Pal Maciver’s suicide in a locked room exactly mirrors that of his father 10 years earlier. In each case accusing fingers point toward Pal’s stepmother, the beautiful, enigmatic Kay Kafka. But she turns out to have a formidable champion, Mid-Yorkshire’s own super-heavyweight, Detective Superintendent Andrew Dalziel. DCI Peter Pascoe, nominally in charge of the investigation, finds he is constantly body-checked by his superior as he tries to disentangle the complex relationships of the Maciver family.

At first these inquiries seem local and domestic. What really happened between Pal and his stepmother? And how has key witness and exotic hooker Dolores, Our Lady of Pain, contrived to disappear from the face of Mid-Yorkshire? Gradually, however, it becomes clear that the fall-out from Pal’s suicide spreads far beyond Yorkshire: to London, to America, even to Iraq. But the emotional epicenter is firmly placed here in Mid-Yorkshire where Pascoe comes to learn that for some people the heart, too, is a locked room, and in there it is always midnight.

No clue how to relate pub notes to actual book!

Would you try another book from Reginald Hill and/or Shaun Dooley?

"Woodcutter" was gem; is this the same author?

What could Reginald Hill have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Liberal use of trash can for bad ideas.

What aspect of Shaun Dooley’s performance would you have changed?

Performance was fine; bad content.

What character would you cut from Good Morning Midnight?

All of 'em!

Any additional comments?

Wow, what a disappointment! I was really looking forward to my next Hill book.
Any suggestions?
