    " DNF. I found it clunky, and I just didn't care enough to pick it back up again when I put it down. I got about a third of the way through. No idea who the murderer was, ended up having to give the book back to the library before I found out. Sorry, Reginald Hill, I'll try some of your later stuff and see if it's better, but this did nothing for me. "

    " repartee that is vigorous and funny-often laugh out loud funny--without minimizing the gravity of what is, after all, a murder. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rosalind | 2/5/2014

    " I love all of Reginald Hill's books, and especially the long-running Dalziel and Pascoe series, but until very recently I'd never read this first in the series. It's thirty-seven years old, for instance, and the series had developed so far that this was bound to be a disappointment. I need not have worried. All the Hill trademarks are there: the tight-knit community with its hidden undercurrents of ill-feeling; a complex web of intrigues; more twists than a Dales byway. "

    " The first Dalziel novel and a great one! it perfectly captures northern England at a certain time and introduces us to one of crime fiction's best detectives. If this is the first time you have read any of Reginald Hill's books, you are in for such a treat because there are so many more waiting for you! "

    " Very unique British detective series recommended to me by a fellow Good Reader since I was a fan of Peter Robinson. But where Robinson transports us to a romantic rural pastoral setting disrupted with a dash of murder, Hill places us in the fertile working class universe of pubs and macho rugby clubs. There are like 25 books in the series, and as a mystery geek who likes to read things in order, i just ordered the next four. Can't wait for them to arrive. Thanks, Kurt. "

    " I know Reginald Hill is popular and this was the first in the series, but I just didn't get into it, didn't like the people, could care less what happened to anyone. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 1/7/2014

    " Veddy, veddy British Murder Mystery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joanne | 1/2/2014

    " An entertaining read. A bit long winded here and there, but I want to read more of the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beth | 12/27/2013

    " Reginald Hill's Dalziel and Pascoe mysteries are among my favorites. I was sad to hear that the author passed away earlier this year. If you aren't familiar with this series, I highly recommend it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Roxane | 12/7/2013

    " A new series - bit different from others I have read. There is the curmudgeonly old, seen it all, Detective Supt. and the newbie Detective Sgt. investigating the death of a woman. Background is a Rugby Club and the various members, their lives, and relationship with DS Dalziel. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jean | 7/31/2013

    " Liked the interaction between the two main characters. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Pamela | 7/5/2013

    " If you are a rugby fan, I'm sure you'll enjoy this. Unfortunately I'm not and I didn't. Didn't even manage to finish it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melinda | 4/13/2013

    " I went back and read this after having read some of the later Dalziel and Pascoe books. It was interesting to see where the characters had started, but I could see that the series improved as it went on. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kai | 2/5/2013

    " An early work. Though not grand in itself, t shows traces of great things to come. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Richard | 1/25/2013

    " The first Dalziel and Pascoe. Good and there is a Mystery episode,too. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mhd | 12/23/2012

    " Unfortunately, another example proving I am generally not a good match with English mysteries or police procedurals if it's not Dick Francis. I only read the first 50 and last 25, but I didn't seem to have missed any plot points. Not much action and no characters I cared about. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jillymom | 11/19/2012

    " I have been addicted to Reginald Hill for about a year now. Finally I have the first in the Pascoe & Daziel series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paul Secor | 10/19/2012

    " I've read many of Reginald Hill's Dalziel/Pascoe novels and recommend them highly. Andy Dalziel is one of the great comic characters in English literature. "

    " Very well written, intelligent and engaging. "
