Summary

Three old men die on a stormy November night: one by deliberate violence, one in a road accident, and one by an unknown cause. Inspector Pascoe is called in to investigate the first death, but when the dying words of the accident victim suggest that a drunken Superintendent Dalziel had been behind the wheel, the integrity of the entire Mid-Yorkshire CID is called into question.

Excellent book, excellent narrator.

I've long been a fan of Reginald Hill's Dalziel & Pascoe series, and this entry is one of my favorites.

And Colin Buchanan is a first-rate narrator, doing the voices and the accents quite well.

I'll buy the rest in this series, and I hope more of the series becomes available.
