Caught in the blast of a huge Semtex explosion, the only things preventing Superintendent Andy Dalziel from stepping through Death's door might be his own size and indomitable willpower. As he lies on a hospital bed, it falls on DCI Peter Pascoe to seek justice for Andy. The security services have written it off as an accident: the terrorist suspects have paid for their clumsiness with their lives. Who, then, are the Knights Templar, a shadowy group exacting summary public justice on their enemies? Pascoe is certain of a conspiracy and the attempted murder of Yorkshire Police's most inept officer only convinces him further. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandi | 2/13/2014

    " One of my all time favorite series. In this outing Dalziel is gravely injured during a bomb blast and Pascoe feels he must solve the crime and his actions become Dalziel like. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wendy | 2/7/2014

    " Reginald Hill is one of only two mystery writers whom I never tire of. Chritie, Sayers, Peters, Perry, Grafton, Mosley...I kept reading all of them after the charm had worn of, just because they provided reliable escape reading. But Hill, along with Elizabeth George, writes such richly developed characters and intruiging stories--and in Hill's case, with so much great humor--that I am amazed with each new book at how good it is. Death Comes for the Fat Man ls as good as I was expecting, and that is saying a lot. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 De | 2/5/2014

    " I have read all of his books. I hope he never dies. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shonna Froebel | 2/3/2014

    " The 22nd in the Dalziel and Pascoe series brings in the element of terrorism. When a police officer thinks he's seen a gun in a video shop, assistance is called in. Dalziel is on duty and Pascoe is called from home in case it is a hostage situation where his negotiation skills might be needed. When the shop explodes, Dalziel is hit badly, but Pascoe has less severe injuries. With Dalziel in a coma, Pascoe is determined to find out what was behind it, but sees intrigue and suspects everywhere. The existence of an anti-Arab group called The Templars that may have support in high places adds more danger to his search for answers. This is a real pageturner. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan Burpee | 1/30/2014

    " The latest Daziel and Pascoe...funny and erudite as ever. My vote for best British mystery writer. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gail | 1/17/2014

    " Andy Dalziel spends most of this book in a coma, and it is up to his "sidekick" Peter Pascoe to move the action along. I like this series and this was a good one of the genre. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen wadey | 1/14/2014

    " I was a bit disappointed, love the tv series just not a very convincing plot can't really see Pete Pascoe as a spook!!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lana Kamennof-sine | 12/17/2013

    " Reginald Hill deserves much kudos for his description of death. Imagine Ingmar Bergman's dance of death mixed with a soupcon of monty python & garnished with a fine single malt. Thoroughly enjoyable - knowing full well the outcome in advance I still wept :-) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Micki | 12/11/2013

    " I love this Pascoe and Dazeil series. I wasn't too surpsised at the ending, but loved it just the same "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenny Twist | 5/4/2013

    " What a cracking read. I can't believe I've never come across this author before. The joy is that he's been writing for years! Just orderd the first in the series and I'll get them all eventually "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ann | 4/20/2013

    " Fun and crazy as most of his are but not, I think, his best. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David Campton | 3/14/2013

    " It cannot be! The death of the fat Yorkshire detective!? Dalziel's demise does not dampen one's enjoyment of this superb, literate thriller. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jamie Walterscheid | 3/12/2013

    " Surprisingly readable. Made me want to live in Yorkshire almost as much as All Creatures Great and Small. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heidi | 3/11/2013

    " An exciting mystery story which leaves you guessing all the way through. Although its not the same without Dalziel dominating and calling the shots... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mackay | 2/12/2013

    " One of my fav Dalziel and Pascoes. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eunira | 12/14/2012

    " Excellent, as always!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ruth | 6/15/2012

    " Hill back to his old best with this one! I did go off the mysteries for a while, but this is quick witted and well paced while retaining all that english steadiness we love in UK crime fiction. Good to see old friends back in form! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris Wright | 3/6/2012

    " Brilliant as ever from Reginald Hill. Total fantasy but happy to suspend disbelief for such great writing. Great characters which lift you above the mundanities of real life. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen | 2/23/2012

    " I love the character of Andy, but in this book Peter Pascoe has a chance to mature as a character. Getting a glimpse of Andy's personal heaven is a great twist. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kim | 10/8/2011

    " Hill is back in top form. I got angry with him after reading the laborious Death's Jest-Book but this has plenty of Fat Andy even though he is in a coma throughout most of the book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dee | 8/12/2011

    " I love this series, the fat and coarse Andy De-el (Dalziel) and Peter Pascoe, his Oxbridge partner. Erudite, scary, good mysteries. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kevin | 5/16/2011

    " This whole series is intriguing and well written. The interplay betwee Dalziel and Pascoe is always thought-provoking and usually hilarious. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen | 3/26/2011

    " I was a bit disappointed, love the tv series just not a very convincing plot can't really see Pete Pascoe as a spook!!!! "

    " Good Read A little more challenging than most police procedurals "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 J. | 7/15/2010

    " This book by Reginald Hill was a good read, a very enjoyable read. The characters are well known and loved and the action was good.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynn | 2/8/2010

    " A complex police procedural that reads more mainstream than genre. Well told and well performed by the audio narrator. Many characters to keep track of, but all well delineated. I will look for more in this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynn | 11/22/2009

    " Great mystery series with recurring characters "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bruce | 10/20/2009

    " Genre is a limiting function on writers, tending to cast them as a "detective" fiction writer, or a "sf" writer. Reading Hill is to read a writer in the fullest sense. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sharon | 6/29/2009

    " A fune read. daziel and pasco play off each other well "
