It starts with a phone call to Superintendent Dalziel from an old friend asking for help. But where it ends is a very different story.

Gina Wolfe has come to Mid-Yorkshire in search of her missing husband, believed dead. Her fiance, Commander Mick Purdy of the Met, thinks Dalziel should be able to take care of the job.

What none of them realize is how events set in motion decades ago will come to a violent head on this otherwise ordinary summer's day.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Neil | 2/20/2014

    " One of the very best of a brilliant series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susan Mangigian | 2/18/2014

    " I love this series and I thoroughly enjoyed this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Adela | 1/28/2014

    " The latest entry in the series has a cunning twist - all action takes place in 24 hours. And, just like those days when you pull an all-nighter, you can't believe how much has happened in just 24 hours. In the space of the day, Hill creates several three-dimensional new characters, and gives the Fat Man some touching, and never-before-seen, vulnerability. Not the place to start the series, but a terrific addition for those of us who already love these Yorkshire cops. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 1/28/2014

    " Although I enjoyed this book a lot, I don't think it is up to the very high standard of some of his other Dalziel and Pascoe books. It was an easy weekend read, I just felt that some of the outer characters didn't really flesh out enough to make them really interesting. Would certainly recommend it to Hill fans however. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol Lynne | 1/22/2014

    " I've always liked Hill's mysteries-interesting (and imperfect) characters and unusual mysteries. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sandi | 1/17/2014

    " Another great entry in the Dalziel & Pascoe series. The action takes place over the course of one very eventful day. I love how Hill always keeps this series fresh and worth reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anne | 1/12/2014

    " Pretty good. Thought the ending a little contrived. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janet | 1/10/2014

    " Ah... the fffat man and life meet up again. Brilliant writing and a mystery, too. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janis Williams | 1/9/2014

    " Very diverting policier, perfect for the hospital recovery! "

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

    " For fans of the series "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carroll | 12/30/2013

    " A very good entry into this series! I couldn't put it down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Monica | 12/26/2013

    " The only thing I regret about this book is that it is the last of the Dalziel & Pascoe stories. All of the characters - Andy, Peter and Wield, Bowler and Novello still have plenty of life in them. It's a shame to say goodbye. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anna | 11/29/2013

    " Good, solid mystery: I would definitely read more by this author. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle | 9/20/2013

    " Pretty Good- formula novel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Simon Parsons | 7/30/2013

    " 24 meets Dalziel and Pascoe - really enjoyed it, the plot kept you interested all the way, and the end was satisfying. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Catherine | 6/30/2013

    " Very good read. I really like how the characters grow and develop over time. I'd only read this book if you've read others in the series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jessica Brown | 3/9/2013

    " This book lacked the necessary character development to make me care about what happened to the characters. Perhaps I'd have liked it better if I'de read a Dalziel & Pascoe mystery before. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joanne | 9/9/2012

    " Love finding a new mystery series! I listened to this - well narrated with a good story. Lots of twists and turns. Definitely goes on my list for more. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robert Docking | 5/28/2012

    " There is such a seeming ease in handling the complicated strains of this Dalziel and Pascoe mystery, you feel on every page that you are in the hands of a master. And you are! A great story, with compelling characters and the wonderfully awful Dalziel. What could be better? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary | 3/30/2012

    " Excellent British mystery! There is a funny older detective who survived a bombing and is trying to get back in the game. It has serious enough content but is well written and a fast read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca Carey | 3/20/2012

    " I needed something not-too-taxing when I arrived in the States as my system was on overload from the move, and this really hit the spot - well plotted, well told. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vivienne Smith | 12/6/2011

    " I would have thought this an acceptable book from a first time author, or from one of the lesser names in the crime-writing genre. BUT - this is by Reginald Hill so I expected much, much moore. A sensible plot with everything resolved at the end would have helped. Very disappointing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mickie | 10/31/2011

    " Reginald Hill is one of my absolute favorite writers today. He transforms his genre fiction into a living breathing character - its literary to the heavens!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Helen | 4/25/2011

    " This book seriously interfered with my study time for my final exam! I love the Dalziel character and highly recommend this series of police procedurals. Begin with the earlier ones though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 4/22/2011

    " Dalziel easing his way back to work the hard way. A good 'un. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Red Fields | 4/16/2011

    " Would've given it 3.5 if I could. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 That70sheidi | 4/5/2011

    " Reginald Hill is awesome, I don't know how he comes up with this stuff but he manages to blow my mind with this series. The mystery and reveals are so tight it's unbelievable. Truly fantastic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carmen | 2/24/2011

    " Great mystery. Loved the humor, the smarts, and the accents! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anna | 2/8/2011

    " Good, solid mystery: I would definitely read more by this author. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joanne | 2/7/2011

    " Love finding a new mystery series! I listened to this - well narrated with a good story. Lots of twists and turns. Definitely goes on my list for more. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Corona | 1/17/2011

    " A mystery that takes place within 24 hours. Full of interesting people and adventure, a page-turner. The Fat Man is back! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Claudette | 1/2/2011

    " Loved seeing Dalziel back in action. "

    " A perfect entry in this long-running series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary | 12/9/2010

    " Excellent British mystery! There is a funny older detective who survived a bombing and is trying to get back in the game. It has serious enough content but is well written and a fast read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 S.S. | 12/5/2010

    " As with all of Hill's Dalziel/Pascoe police stories, this one is superb.

    I read a lot of books, but only a few authors make me laugh out loud. Hill's wry expressions are sheer brilliance. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mark | 11/27/2010

    " One of the best from one of the best. Andy Dalziel is back in form in this tightly constructed case concerning bent coppers and Tory gangsters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Helaine | 11/10/2010

    " In 24 hours, Dalziel agrees to help a woman determine if her missing husband of 7 years is dead or alive. The twist at the end has you thumbing back through the book looking for all those hints and foreshadowings you missed! "
