Publisher's Summary

Peter Pascoe is in shock. A weekend in the country with old friends turns into a nightmare when he finds three of them dead and the missing fourth a prime suspect in the eyes of the local police. They want his cooperation. Superintendent Andy Dalziel wants him back in Yorkshire where a string of unsolved burglaries are turning nasty. But it is all getting too much for Pascoe?

Hard work to listen to

The book is up to the usual Dalziel & Pascoe standard but, although Brian Glover's Yorkshire accent is more accurate for Andy Dalziel than Warren Clarke's Lancastrian accent we're used to on TV, it does make it a harder listen than other D&P books read by Colin Buchanan.
Brian Glover reads as if he's got his finger under the words whilst Colin Buchanan's narration flows more naturally with more light and shade in the voices as well.
It's a shame, but because of the narrator, it's hard work to listen to.

Wrong reader

I am a Reginald Hill fan and was held by the story which had all the usual unexpected twists that result in a page turner. However, the reader (Brian Glover) lacked the chameleon quality that would have allowed listeners to bypass him, as if they were listening to the actual characters, and lose themselves in the story - his Yorkshire accent is pervasive and, as much of the action is around Oxfordshire, obtrusive.
