Publisher's Summary

Life was a bed of roses for Patrick Aldermann when Great Aunt Florence collapsed in her rose-bed and he inherited Rosemont House with its splendid gardens. But when his boos, 'Dandy' Dick Elgood, suggested to Peter Pascoe that Aldermann was a murderer, then retracted the accusation, the inspector was left with a thorny problem. Though by then a police cadet had dug up some very interesting information about Patrick's elegant wife.


What the Critics Say

"One of Britain's most consistantly excellent crime novelists." (The Times [London])
"[Colin Buchanan's] Peter Pascoe is perfect. His Dalziel also sounds just right....In fact, all of the characters are entirely believable and distinctly individual, from blue-collar Yorkshire to educated lady." (AudioFile)

I've read a number of the Reginald Hill books and found them more interesting and more demanding than the TV series - more enjoyable too. This audio book is very good. Nothing is lost as the format is unabridged, allowing chapter toppings of quotations etc to be included. The reading with the acted voices is excellent. Sometimes it demands a level of concentration which you wouldn't need with a book where you can always flick back a few pages to check a detail. Definitely a positive recommendation for this version.

Enjoyable but some old fashioned views/opinions

How things have changed in ten years as this book contains some racist opinions and language that people may find offensive now, however, I am old enough to remember that this was how people thought and spoke of different races and cultures. This was not central to the story and despite bad opinions of the "Fat Man" he sticks up for the officer in question.
Good story line and well narrated. A worthwhile listen.
