Some say that Andy Dalziel wasn't ready for God, others that God wasn't ready for Dalziel. Either way, despite his recent proximity to a terrorist blast, the Superintendent remains firmly of this world. And, while Death may be the cure for all diseases, Dalziel is happy to settle for a few weeks' care under a tender nurse.

Convalescing in Sandytown, a quiet seaside resort devoted to healing, Dalziel befriends Charlotte Heywood, a fellow newcomer and psychologist, who is researching the benefits of alternative therapy. With much in common, the two soon find themselves in league when trouble comes to town. Sandytown's principal landowners have grandiose plans for the resort -- none of which they can agree on. One of them has to go, and when one of them does, in spectacularly gruesome fashion, DCI Peter Pascoe is called in to investigate -- with Dalziel and Charlotte providing unwelcome support.

But Pascoe finds dark forces at work in a place where medicine and holistic remedies are no match for the oldest cure of all! Download and start listening now!

    " I loved Reginald Hill's new Dalziel/Pascoe mystery. His is my favorite of all English mysteries, not least because of Andy Dalziel himself. This time, for the first time, part of the book was in Andy's voice, which made it SO entertaining. He knows quite a few turns of phrase that might stop one dead in their tracks. This was the best sort of English mystery: funny, convoluted, and peopled with interesting characters. "

    " This series is one of my all time favorites and this entry does not disappoint. The plot is Hill's take on the classic English House Party mystery with inspiration also taken from Jane Austen's unfinished novel Sandition (Two Unfinished Novels by Jane Austen: Sandition & The Watsons). This was a dense, leisurely paced tale with lots of red herrings, false turns, and some of the most interesting characters in crime fiction. "

    " Andy Dalziel cracks me up. Reginald Hill is one of the most literate mystery writers today. Not the place to start in the series, but what a fantastic addition. "
