Publisher's Summary

A ravaged wood, a man in uniform long dead - this is not a World War One battlefield but Wanwood House, a pharmaceutical research centre.
Peter Pascoe attends his grandmother’s funeral, and scattering her ashes leads him, too, into war-torn woods in search of his great-grandfather, who fought and died in Passchendaele. Seeing the wood for the trees is the problem for Andy Dalziel when he finds himself fancying an animal rights activist depite her possible complicity in a murderous assault and her appalling taste in whisky. A mind-bending puzzle leading us on the wild side of the pastoral.

Slow start - great finish

Really slow to get going but really worth the effort to keep listening. Lots of twists in the plot right to last few minutes!

Excellent narration with good clef distinctive characters.

Dalziel and Pascoe are always a good read

I’ve enjoyed all the Reginald Hill books I’ve read. I was a little distracted by a few too many coincidences and odd moments (especially what happens in the lake at the end - weird).

I really don’t like the Dalziel voice or most of the female voices. Ellie sounds to me like a stereotypical “country bumpkin”.

Still a great book and overcame the spotty narration.
