Listener Opinions

    " it seems that reginald hill starts three different stories but at the end all of them resolve wonderfully in one. and what a thrilling end it is! as always: wonderful characters! dalziel, pascoe, wield and all the others are great developed. it just wants to make you read more about them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jill | 12/19/2012

    " Good riddance, Franny Roote! I was entirely sick of him by the end of this. Diappointed more wasn't made out of the Rye/Hat situation, that could have been really good. Liked the last one so much better! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rog Harrison | 11/20/2012

    " This is the second time I have read this. Whilst it was a compulsive page turner the ending is not satisfying. It is very much a sequel to the equally unsatisfying "Dialogues of the dead". "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sherie | 10/8/2012

    " Hated the way Peter acted in this one and the way it ended. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Graham Botha | 3/17/2012

    " The story is disjointed and the list of characters confusing. Periodically the story grabs the reader with a little spurt of excitement or tension, but frequently these bouts fizzle or are left unresolved "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Merrick | 11/15/2011

    " Excellent.. weird but excellent "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Thomas | 8/6/2011

    " cheeky british crime noir... a fun read... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kate Read | 8/3/2011

    " So far so good - my first Reginald Hill "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gavin | 6/27/2011

    " A kind of sequel to Dialogues of the Dead, which it would be useful to have read before this. It works well as a stand alone in the series, but works better as a complement to the earlier novel referred. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Holly | 6/17/2011

    " Another enjoyable read from a much-mourned master detective novelist. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leslie | 5/13/2011

    " I love this author. Every book he writes is different but all have a great, enthusiastic quality. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Barb | 5/1/2011

    " 558 pages of English detection - good plot, way too long for solution to mystery "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joan | 2/19/2011

    " Three is the top mark I give to mysteries. Love the Pascoe and Dalziel series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eileen | 9/22/2010

    " I've been re-reading a few books that I either remember fondly or don't remember much at all. This is a difficult read because of multiple complex story lines, but in the end I think I'm going to revise my rating. Hill is amazing at character development and the subtlety of evil in ordinary people. "
